I always liked Bradley .

First heard of him when he came over to fight Witter in May 2008 . It was being presented as a fight for Witter to get his recognition high enough (it was Live ITV1) to make a Hatton fight inevitable .

Bradley was just the no name opponent . He was 11/2 with Skybet . I looked at his record though and it seemed he had paid his dues to get the mandatory shot and was not just a cherry pick so i backed him.

Going into the 12th i wasn't scoring it, but figured it was close with judges likely to favour Witter and i assumed the odds were close to Evens but i glanced on this forum and saw Bradley was 1.18 IR ! I hadn't been planning to lay off but i thought i had to with those odds but rushed it and fked up ; when it suspended i realized i'd accidentally backed Bradley with about £500 @1.16 Cry

Massive relief when he won a split .

After that i thought he was very good for years and never got much recognition . He was beating opponents of a similar level to Thurman or Khan but never was on their level as far as most thought. He really should have been given credit for being the 1st to beat Pacquiao for 8 years but instead there was all the rubbish about the decision being wrong .Tim never had the sort of personality outside of fighting to assert himself in the media imo and so people will just recall he was given a gift decision due to a fix, and so his rep will be lower than it ought to.
