By Dan Ambrose: If you were one of the boxing fans who were hoping to see an appealing slugfest on December 13th in the fight between former two division world champion Tim Bradley (31-1, 12 KOs) and Argentinean knockout artist Diego Chaves (23-2, 19 KOs), you can think again.
Bradley, 31, says he has no intention of fighting the 28-year-old Chaves in the same way that he fought Ruslan Provodnikov in their fight in 2013. While Bradley isn’t coming out saying he plans on staying out of Chaves’ wheelhouse the entire night on December 13th, it seems like that’s what the case is going to be.

By Dan Ambrose: Tim Bradley (31-1, 12 KOs) will be fighting in three months on December 13th at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada. The likely opponent is #10 IBF Diego Chaves (23-2, 19 KOs), who has lost 2 out of his last 3 fights, according to Dan Rafael.
It’s a good opponent for Bradley considering that both fighters are coming off of defeats, and Chaves actually looked a lot better than Bradley did in his recent defeat at the hands of Manny Pacquiao last April. Chaves lost to Brandon Rios last August by a 9th round disqualification in a fight that Chaves was winning at the time referee Vic Drakulitch halted it due to him seeing Chaves throw an elbow.
