Rising star Timothy Bradley, a possible future opponent of Manny Pacquiao, tangles with veteran Joel Casamayor in the undercard of the Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez trilogy on November 12 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The unbeaten Bradley (27-0 with 11 KOs) will be dangling his World Boxing Council super lightweight crown against the 40-year-old Casamayor (38-5-1 with 22 KOs), who is bidding to become the first three-division champion from Cuba.
An impressive victory would most likely line up Bradley among Pacquiao’s probable challengers next year, according to MiamiHerald.com.
The addition of Bradley-Casamayor bolstered the undercard ofWorld Boxing III, which is projected to draw about 17,000 spectators, generate gate sales of about $11.7 million and pay-per-view hits of 1.4 million.
Also on tap is the battle between junior welterweight prospects Mike Alvarado (31-0 with 22 KOs) of Denver and Colombian Bredis Prescott (24-3 with 19KOs).
Filipinos seeing action in the card are welterweight champion Dennis Laurente, WBO Oriental featherweight titlist Lorenzo Villanueva and junior bantamweight Fernando Lumacad of General Santos City.
