Marquez vs Bradley fight moved to October 12 to avoid Floyd-Canelo

Jeff Bottari

Juan Manuel Marquez and Timothy Bradley have had their fight date moved back to October 12 after it was announced that Floyd Mayweather will face Canelo Alvarez on September 14.

Juan Manuel Marquez and Timothy Bradley are still set to fight this fall, but their bout has been pushed back to October 12 after it was announced last night that Floyd Mayweather will face Canelo Alvarez on September 14 in Las Vegas.

Promoter Bob Arum had the October 12 date booked as an alternative in the event that Mayweather actually did fight on September 14, and many expected that Marquez-Bradley would move back even if Canelo Alvarez fought someone else, let alone Mayweather fighting someone else.

Marquez-Bradley will be an HBO pay-per-view event, meaning there will be three big fights (Mayweather-Canelo, Marquez-Bradley, Pacquiao-Rios) on pay-per-view in September, October, and November. Who's ready to dip into their Christmas Club?

The fight will be held in Las Vegas at the Thomas & Mack Center, which housed the Chavez Jr-Martinez fight last September. Arum may be vindictive and may be willing to go head-to-head on most nights, but he knows there's just no sense in trying to fight a Floyd Mayweather event. He has made clear several times he won't go head-to-head with Floyd, and he's stuck by that.
