Roughly two months after the eight-division titlist was rendered unconscious by a spectacular overhand right thrown by WBO “Champion of the Decade” Juan Manuel Marquez, Roger Mayweather still wants to see his nephew, Floyd, battle Manny Pacquiao. During their fourth brutal affair, Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs) was knocked onto Queer Street by the 39-year-old Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KOs...
WBO light welterweight champ Timothy Bradley will defend his belt against Russian Ruslan Provodnikov on March 16 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California.
