LAS VEGAS, NV - Saturday night at the Wynn Las Vegas, Tim Bradley showed the world why he is the champion. Outboxing Juan Manuel Marquez over twelve rounds Bradley triumphed to retain the WBO welterweight championship belt. Once again, the underdog defied the odds and dispatched one of boxing’s heroes.

As the fight continued, the faster Bradley took Marquez out of his game plan with pure boxing and power by landing blistering body shots with the left hand and straight rights upstairs. Just as hard...

Nobody likes a split-decision, but unlike the controversial win Timothy Bradley received last year against Pacquiao, many believed he deserved this win over Juan Manuel Marquez. It’s tough to see any passionate athlete lose, and it’s clear Juan Manuel Marquez is very beat up over this loss.
We caught him leaving after the fight last night in a raw display of emotions.
These are the results for the three main undercard fights to support the main event of Juan Manuel Marquez and Timothy Bradley:
Light heavyweight Sean Monaghan (19-0, 11 KO) dominated and stopped an out of shape Anthony Caputo-Smith (14-2, 10 KO) in the 3rd round a fight that in no way deserved to be on a pay-per-view undercard. Monaghan, a popular fighter from New York, was...

Okay, so no one actually called it the 'We Beat Manny Pacquiao' fight but me (not that I could find at least). That was what made this fight a little more unique. It's two combatants--Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez--hold the distinction of being the only two fighters to defeat the PacMan (Bradley by decision and Marquez knocked him out).
In June 2012, at the conclusion of Timothy Bradley-Manny Pacquiao, I paced swiftly up and down press row asking anyone in view how they had scored the fight. At the time, I could find only one person who had scored the fight for Bradley. As I walked through the doors of the MGM Grand’s media center, and into the post-fight press conference, Top Rank chief Bob Arum was already at...
