Top Rank Boxing promoter, Bob Arum confirmed that Tim Bradley, coming off his disputed victory over Manny Pacquiao last June, is making his return to the ring on February 9th. As for who he might face, the promoter said, “We want to see what happens in this fight this weekend [Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez IV] and then we'll be able to make a suggestion to Bradley and we hope to have him back in the ring here in Nevada on February 9th at the Mandalay Bay.”

For a spell, Bradley seemed to be rebelling against Top Rank and even hired the services of Gaby Penagaricano (best known for being the adviser of Miguel Cotto).

“Well, I think he realizes that they sent in Gaby to poison him and he believed that Gaby was this great genius until he saw what happened last weekend,” said Arum, referencing Cotto's loss to Austin Trout in New York, a fight that severely damaged Cotto in several ways. “I believe - and I don't know this for sure It's my opinion - that there was a sell-out deal to Al Haymon (who represents Trout) and he sold Miguel Cotto down the river.”
