Bradley keeps his title and defeats Marquez. There are a lot of people who consider this an upset, but I think people overrated Marquez after his win against Pacquiao and underrated Bradley after his controversial win against Pacquiao.
Styles make fight and Marquez vs Bradley was a case of that tonight. If you look at Marquez’s history, he has trouble against elusive fighters who are patient. Mayweather gave Marquez a shi’t load of trouble doing the same exact thing.
I feel like Bradley played his cards right, but could have put a few more punches together. He might have been playing it a little too safe. With the decisions that have been dealt lately, Bradley should have been more convincing in his dominance for the judges.
Marquez vs Bradley was definitely a match Bradley needed to make a statement and he did. Bradley keeps his belt and beat a great fighter. What’s next for him? Could Bradley possibly fight the winner of Paquiao vs Rios in the near future?
