RING middleweight champion Sergio Martinez and Miguel Cotto have agreed in principle to a June 7 fight on HBO Pay Per View at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Top Rank President Todd duBoef confirmed to RingTV.com on Thursday.
The rematch between Tim Bradley and Manny Pacquiao was officially announced by Top Rank on Saturday. The welterweight standouts will fight on April 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Bradley won the WBO welterweight belt from Pacquiao via controversial decision in 2012.
Tim Bradley weighed in at a ripped-and-ready looking 146 pounds for his Saturday WBO welterweight title defense against Juan Manuel Marquez on Friday in Las Vegas. Marquez weighed in at lean and muscular 144.5 pounds.
Juan Manuel Marquez felt too good to call it quits after knocking out his arch nemesis Manny Pacquiao last December. The Mexican legend wants to carry the momentum from the Pacquiao victory into his challenge to WBO welterweight titleholder Tim Bradley on Saturday.
