Timothy Bradley may not fight on December 15 due to lingering foot injury issues

Timothy Bradley was scheduled to return to the ring on December 15, but that fight is in doubt now, as he is reportedly suffering from lingering issues in his feet after his June fight with Manny Pacquiao.

Timothy Bradley's scheduled December 15 return to the ring is in doubt, as the WBO welterweight titlist is reportedly still having issues with the feet he injured in his controversial June 9 win over Manny Pacquiao.

Robert Morales reports at that promoter Bob Arum says he's heard from Cameron Dunkin, Bradley's manager, that the 28-year-old California native might not be ready for that date, which was set for Marlins Park in Miami. Bradley's rumored opponents have included Robert Guerrero and Andre Berto, which are now essentially ruled out, and then Lamont Peterson, which was said to be in serious negotiations. Ruslan Provodnikov's name has also been attached to the fight.

Arum also says that even if Bradley doesn't fight, Top Rank will run the huge baseball stadium on that date anyway. One would suspect that Yuriorkis Gamboa and/or Guillermo Rigondeaux, Top Rank's two most notable Cuban fighters, would be in play for that date if that's the case.

Dunkin says he'll "know any day" if Bradley will be fighting on December 15. If he does not, I think it's safe to say his feets have failed him now.
