Timothy Bradley Featured Guest on Crunchtime
Boxing legend and former five-time world champion Timothy Bradley will be the featured guest on Crunchtime on Saturday at 11 am. Bradley, who is currently a commentator/analyst for ESPN and Top Rank Boxing won titles in the welterweight and junior welterweight divisions in a memorable career that spanned from 2004-2016. For more than a decade, Bradley was considered as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world and was involved in numerous epic bouts, including three with Manny Pacquiao.
Besides defeating Pacquiao during their first fight in a controversial split decision in 2012, he beat some of the best boxers in the game such as Juan Manuel Marquez, Ruslan Provodnikov, Brandon Rios, Jessie Vargas, Devon Alexander, and Lamont Peterson. Bradley will discuss the recent tragedy of the death of Russain boxer Maxim Dadashev, who sadly passed away this past Tuesday from injuries that he sustained in his bout against Subriel Matias in Maryland.
Bradley was part of the ESPN Plus team who called the fight and will give his perspective as to what happened, the lack of medical attention during the post-fight and discuss trainer Buddy McGirt's decision to stop the bout in the 11th round. He will also discuss if there are any measures that can be taken to make boxing a safer sport as well as his own career achievements.
