Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KOs) is scheduled to fight Timothy Bradley (30-0-0, 12 KOs) in a 12-round WBO welterweight title fight on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KO) has not fought since he scored a a spectacular 6th round KO win over Manny Pacquiao last December in their fourth fight. Bradley is coming off a close unanimous decision win over Ruslan Provodnikov in this past March where he was almost knocked down in the first and second rounds and was knocked down in round twelve.
Bradley will turn 30 in August, is 10 years younger than Marquez, who turns 40 six days before Bradley’s birthday. There’s no doubt that youth is on his side, and for both of these guys, their Pacquiao performances don’t tell us a whole lot about what they might do with one another. Both are righties, whereas Pacquiao is a southpaw, and neither of them fight like Manny.
