Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

For­mer two-di­vi­sion world box­ing cham­pion Ti­mothy Bradley is re­tir­ing. Bradley con­firmed his de­ci­sion Satur­day night in a state­ment is­sued after he com­men­tated on Va­syl Lo­machenko’s vic­tory over Miguel Mar­riaga in down­town Los An­ge­les. The 33-year-old Bradley went 33-2-1 with 13 knock­outs in his ca­reer, win­ning ti­tles at wel­ter­weight and light wel­ter­weight. He fa­mously fought Manny Pac­quiao three times, beat­ing the Filipino star in a widely dis­puted de­ci­sion in 2012 be­fore los­ing two re­matches by de­ci­sion. Bradley won a light wel­ter­weight ti­tle in 2008 and moved up four years later to claim Pac­quiao’s wel­ter­weight belt. Bradley de­fended that ti­tle in a sen­sa­tional brawl with Rus­lan Provod­nikov in 2013, and he beat Juan Manuel Mar­quez by split de­ci­sion seven months later. Bradley hasn’t fought since his sec­ond loss to Pac­quiao in April 2016.
