Bradley responds to WBC!

Current WBO 140lb champion and former WBC champion Tim Bradley’s email response to the WBC sent today after it was announced exclusively by that Bradley had been stripped.

Don Jose:

It has been a privilege representing the World Boxing Council as its super lightweight champion for the past 12 months and no one was more proud to wear that illustrious green belt than I. The WBC believed in me and recognized my victories, advancing my ratings accordingly. Because of your support I was able to challenge Junior Witter for the WBC title last year and defend it and unify it, and for that I will always be grateful. It is important that unified champions should be encouraged thus eliminating the title confusion that permeates the sport or the media that cover it and the fans who follow it. However, because the WBC has issued an edict to choose between titles, it is with a heavy heart that I relinquish my WBC title and allow the contenders below me to challenge for it. I will always cherish my reign as WBC super lightweight champion and I hope to have the opportunity to fight for that honor again.
