Marquez vs Bradley media tour starts June 20

Chris Farina/Top Rank

Juan Manuel Marquez and Timothy Bradley will kick off the media tour for their October 12 fight on June 20 in Los Angeles.

Juan Manuel Marquez will challenge Timothy Bradley for the WBO welterweight title on October 12 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, live on HBO pay-per-view, and the two fighters will start their press tour to promote the fight on June 20 in Los Angeles.

The tour, as it were, concludes the next day in Mexico City.

Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KO) turned down a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao, and Bradley (30-0, 12 KO) also chose to pass on a rematch with the Filipino, the two instead opting to fight one another in a fresh matchup for Bradley's world title, which was controversially lifted from Pacquiao last June. Marquez knocked out Manny in their fourth bout in December.

Since his win over Pacquiao, Bradley survived a hellacious war with Ruslan Provodnikov in March, and Marquez has been on the sidelines. The Mexican star made clear that he was much more interested in fighting Bradley in an attempt to win another world title, even if it meant less money than the Pacquiao fight, which it does.
