This Saturday, October 12, 2013, the last two men to beat the global boxing icon Manny Pacquiao will face off at the Thomas & Mack Center on the campus of UNLV in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KOs) is a sure fire Hall of Famer. Timothy Bradley (30-0, 12 KOs) is a blue chip 147-pound fighter that is still fighting for notoriety and respect after his controversial win over the Pacman.
This fight isn’t just for a 147-pound WBO Welterweight belt, this bout could catapult Tim Bradley into talks of a Floyd Mayweather fight and give him the respect and fandom he’s been desperately searching for.
Juan Manual Marquez can add another scalp and another title to his legacy and cement his place as a Mexican boxing icon.
