Bradley vs. Marquez on September 14th unless Mayweather fights on that date, says Arum
Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is holding September 14th for an HBO pay per view fight between WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley (30-0, 12 KO’s) and Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KO’s) unless Floyd Mayweather Jr. decides to fight on that date, in which case Arum will move the Bradley-Marquez fight to another day, according to Steve Kim.
The Bradley-Marquez fight will take place at the Thomas & Mack Center, in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the fight isn’t nearly big enough to compete against a Mayweather fight. Arum has no other choice but to move off the September 14th date if Mayweather fights unless he wants to have low numbers for the Bradley-Marquez fight in terms of buys.
Additionally, WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez may find himself in a situation where he and Mayweather will have to decide which one gets the September 14th date if they don’t agree on a fight. I can see Mayweather off the date and letting Canelo fight Miguel Cotto or whoever Golden Boy chooses to match him against. Mayweather would then have to fight at a later date, but not much later because he’s got squeeze in his five remaining fights within the 30 month time frame as part of his contract with Showtime/CBS.
Arum had said in the past that he had no problems going head to head with Golden Boy fight cards on the same night. He thought it was a good thing for boxing and he mentioned that a lot of boxing fans have Tivo and they would simply TIVo the other fight card and watch it later. However, it’s a different story when you’re talking about two PPV cards on the same night on different networks. We’re potentially a bill of $120 for the two PPV cards combined on a single night, and I can’t imagine there would be too many boxing fans willing to do that.
