Timothy Bradley Jr: Rigondeaux should meet Lomachenko at 126

...please and thank you.

Former welterweight titleholder Timothy Bradley Jr. give his thoughts on my personal dream fight: Guillermo Rigondeaux vs Vasyl Lomachenko. Great minds think alike, Bradley. I've said it before, but there's no better masterclass fight to be made in all of boxing. And I'm not even a particular fan of either fighter, but I certainly respect their craftsmanship and regard them as the best technical fighters in the sport today.

And with all that skill trapped inside one squared circle, there's no doubt the two would bring out the best in one another and we, as fans, would likely get the chance to see something special. Check out what Bradley had to say:

On what fight he would want to see in boxing:

"The fight that I want to see is Rigondeaux and Lomachenko. Now that makes sense. [Rigo's] a bad dude, man. That's a bad, bad dude...Why not...[Rigo] should go up to 126 and fight Lomachenko."

On who would win that fight:

"...don't know. I don't know. Yeah, that's a 50-50 fight, man. You've got one guy that's a master of distance, who in my opinion is Rigondeaux and then you got another guy that's got the best footwork I've ever seen. [Lomachenko] should be on dancing with the stars. I think it would be a great, great, great fight."
