Bradley-Abregu back on

Sources out of Argentina stated that WBO Junior welterweight champion Timothy ‘Desert Storm’ Bradley of Palm Springs, California (25-0, 11 KOs) will take on unbeaten welterweight contender Luis Carlos Abregu (29-0, 23 KOs) of Argentina on July 17th. The bout would be a non-title bout fought at the welterweight limit. The site of the fight would be the Agua Caliente resort in Rancho Mirage, CA a short distance from Bradley’s hometown. HBO will televise the event. A bout was proposed for Bradley and Abregu to fight June 19th but the bout was eventually scrapped in favor of a bigger showdown between Bradley and WBA interim super lightweight champion Marcos Maidana (28-1, 27 KOs) of Argentina. After Maidana pulled out twice due to a back injury Bradley-Abregu is now back on. Both Bradley and Abregu are promoted by Gary Shaw.
