Five time World Champion Tim Bradley has confirmed retirement thoughts have started to creep in.
Bradley signed a two year extension with Bob Arum’s Top Rank stable back in August 2016 but admits once that matures he could walk away from the game.
“I think about it a lot. I’m 33 now. Maybe a couple more fights. Maybe I’ll finish out my contract with TopRank and be done. We’ve done pretty damn well, I can’t complain,” explained the Californian to FightHub.
‘Desert Storm’ has been out of the ring since his April 2016 trilogy fight with Manny Pacquiao and was quizzed if a potential fight with Canelo Alvarez would be of interest, to which Bradley responded:
“Nobody is too big for me! But it’s about health too. I’m trying to leave this sport with some sense. I have five kids, I got to make sure they get off to college and be able to speak to my grandbabies.”
The two weight World Champion’s career has been managed by his wife, Monica and insists his next move will have to be agreed by all parties before putting pen to paper.
“I’ll exercise any fight if it makes sense. My team have got to agree on it. If we all agree and want to take that risk, then it’s something we have got to live with.”
Speaking at the time of his contract extension, Monica Bradley revealed a fight with Miguel Cotto would be of interest: "That's one of the fights Tim would like before he is done with his career.”
BoxNation viewers have witnessed multiple Bradley fights down the years including the tussles with the likes of Pacquiao, Rios and Vargas and will be intrigued to see his next move as Bradley’s 37 fight professional career enters its 13th year.
