"I have been waiting all my life to get a chance at that green belt (WBC). It's been 14 years, since I have been in the amateurs, I began dreaming about becoming a world champion. The only one in my way to that prize is Castillo." said .Bradley at the final press conference. "I hear he might trouble making the weight. He is not even here today, but that does not matter to me. I don't care what he does and how he does it, all I want is to be a world champion and Castillo is not going to stop me from achieving my dream!"
Bradley is in perfect condition anxiously awaiting for the opening bell. His metabolism is so fast, he has been forced to eat six meals daily to maintain his weight. His mass body weight for this fight is at five percent. He weighed 143.5 lbs at his seven-day weigh-in, well below the 147 lbs. maximum allowed. Castillo, in his last WBC report, did not include his seven-day weight, a clear violation of WBC rules. Castillo, who has a history of not making weight for fights, reportedly weighed 151 lbs at his 30-day weigh-in, leading to speculation that he may be suffering from dietary inflation. The weight limit for their March 8 fight in Cancun, Mexico is 140 lbs.The weight limit for the fight is 140 lbs.
Bradley is promoted by Gary Shaw Productions and Thompson Promotions.
