Holt vs. Bradley, Andrade vs. Tsypko on April 4th

bradley34157By Jim Dower: WBC light welterweight champion Kendall Holt (25-2, 13 KOs) will face off against World Boxing Organization light welterweight title holder unbeaten Timothy Bradley (23-0, 11 KOs) in a 12-round unification bout at the Bell Centre, in Montreal, Canada on April 4th. This fight matches two fighters with extraordinary hand speed, easily the best in the entire light welterweight division. Going into this fight, Bradley looks to be the slightly stronger fighter due to his power advantage. However, that can all change in an instant if Holt is able to catch Bradley with a shot that he doesn’t see coming.

Hatton Has Unfinished Business With Witter and Bradley

hatton323342By Scott Gilfoid: Whether Ricky Hatton (45-1, 32 KOs) ends up fighting both Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2009, I think Hatton’s career will be forever tainted unless he steps it up and gives both Junior Witter (37-2-2, 22 KOs) and Timothy Bradley (23-0, 11 KOs) at some point in time. Hatton, for obvious reasons, would be better off fighting them sooner rather than later, because he’s now 30 and his many ring wars are starting to show their effects on him.

Why Isn’t Ricky Hatton Fighting Timothy Bradley?

Image: Why Isn't Ricky Hatton Fighting Timothy Bradley?By Jim Dower: Rather than taking on the much stiffer challenge against unbeaten WBC light welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (23-0, 11 KOs), Ricky Hatton (44-1, 31 KOs) is going to be facing the much lighter threat by taking on former IBF light welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (25-1, 5 KOs) on November 22nd, at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada. At stake will be Hatton’s obscure IBO title, rather than the IBF belt, which was vacated by Malignaggi recently.

However, Hatton would probably been much better off if he had opted not to fight Malignaggi at all, and instead selected the young, faster, harder punching WBC champion Bradley, who many boxing experts feel is perhaps the best fighter in the division. While there is some disagreement as to whether Bradley is better than Hatton, probably most experts would agree that he’d wipe the deck with Malignaggi if given the opportunity.
