Pacquiao vs Bradley Rematch: Timothy Bradley Still Wants the Fight

Timothy Bradley tells his hometown paper The Desert Sun that he's still in favor of rematching Manny Pacquiao on November 10, even though it appears for now that that's not going to happen:

"I think the rematch should happen. I think the fight was really close, it could have gone either way," Bradley said. "I'm all for it. Nov. 10, let's do it. November or December, if he wants to do the rematch, why not? All this (controversy) would be taken away. Let's do the rematch and settle it once and for all."

Bradley, of course, won an exceptionally controversial split decision over Pacquiao on June 9 in Las Vegas, and because there are some fears that a rematch won't sell well -- with too much of the audience feeling they already saw a conclusive winner, and just got a bum decision announced at the end -- the more likely 11/10 fight now appears to be a fourth bout with Juan Manuel Marquez and Pacquiao.

Bradley also states clearly and boldly that he absolutely did not tell Bob Arum in the ring that he felt he'd lost the fight, which Arum said after the bout was the case:

"I never told Bob that at all. He's a liar and I will tell him that to his face."

Despite the brash statement, Bradley says he envisions no issues working with Top Rank going forward.

Now that you've had 11 days to digest everything, probably have watched the fight at least one more time, what do you prefer on November 10? Is it Bradley-Pacquiao II or Pacquiao-Marquez IV? Which fight, simply put, is more likely to get your PPV money again? Or if you're the type that would order no matter what, which one would you be happier to spend $65 on?
