Timothy Bradley wins back interim WBO welterweight title

Timothy Bradley stood in his corner, stunned.

Jessie Vargas was standing on the ropes in his corner, a giant grin on his face and his arms raised following their 12-round title bout. It appeared, for a few tense moments, that this would be another confusing ending for the Cathedral City boxer.

With 14 seconds remaining, Vargas caught Bradley with the biggest shot of their fight Saturday night. The right hook knocked Bradley off balance and he backpedaled for several feet, nearly falling to the canvas as the 10-second warning clapper sounded and referee Pat Russell called the fight.

As Vargas raced back to his corner with his arms up in victory, Bradley stood baffled, along with the crowd of 4,711 at StubHub Center.

After a moment of pandemonium, and some clarification, Russell instead sent the fight to the scorecards, where Bradley won by unanimous decision to claim the interim WBO welterweight title — the same championship belt he held prior to his first professional loss, to Manny Pacquiao, last year. The fight was the 1,000th shown on HBO since the network began televising fights in 1973.

“I got hit with a good shot (and) I went back,” Bradley said. “All of a sudden the referee waived his hands. I didn’t know what was going on. I thought it was the end for the fight, but I didn’t really know.”

Russell clarified his decision to send it to the cards by saying that he mistook the 10-second warning as the end of the round. “I made the call that I thought was correct,” he said.

Had Russell not called the fight seconds early, Vargas believes he would have finished Bradley off.

“I hit him with three of four shots, it was still going on and then all of a sudden the fight stops and there were about seven seconds left,” Vargas said. “All I needed was one more shot and I would have won.

“Those seven seconds cost me the fight.”

The announcement that Bradley won the fight — 116-112, 117-111 and 115-112 — was met with mixed reaction from the crowd, which appeared to be divided between the two fighters. But few could argue with the result. All three judges scored at least eight rounds in favor of Bradley heading into the 12th and final round.

Unlike his fight six months ago that resulted in a split-draw with Diego Chaves in Las Vegas, Bradley was clearly the early aggressor against Vargas. He was quicker on his feet and as a result much more explosive with his punches. He landed a number of crisp shots on Vargas that allowed him to capture the early momentum.

But Bradley (32-1-1, 12 KOs), 31, may have actually been overly aggressive. Initiating the action often left him open to counter punches, of which Vargas landed several. Bradley’s left eye began to swell and, although Bradley was winning on the cards, he allowed Vargas to hang around until the end.

“Vargas had a hell of a jab,” Bradley said. “He hurt me all during the fight. It really bothered me.”

Bradley landed 232 total punches, including 143 power punches. Vargas landed 203 total punches, with 109 power punches.

Vargas (26-1, 9 KOs), a secondary junior welterweight titleholder in the 140-pound weight class, moved up a weight division to fight Bradley and accept a $600,000 payday.

Bradley pocketed $1.5 million for what was his first win in more than 20 months when he defeated Juan Manuel Marquez in Oct. 2013.

It was reported last month that the winner of this fight must face 26-year-old Sadam Ali (22-0, 13 KOs) in their first title defense later this year. Top Rank promotions chief executive Bob Arum would not confirm that after the fight, and even wondered aloud if a Bradley-Vargas rematch made sense.

“Maybe,” he said.

Vargas publicly asked Bradley for a rematch after the fight but time will tell if it ever materializes.

“Let’s start where we left off tonight.” Vargas said.

LOS ÁNGELES, 18 de mayo.- En una pelea emocionante  con una caída en cada bando, Juan Manuel Márquez venció contundentemente, por decisión unánime, a Mike Alvarado en el Forum Inglewood, de Los Ángeles, y tiene el camino abierto para una quinta pelea contra Manny Pacquiao por el título welter de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo.

En el combate, que fue denominado eliminatorio para una pelea contra el vigente campeón filipino, Márquez (56-7-1, 40 KO’s) dominó la mayoría de los rounds, conectó los mejores golpes y derribó en el octavo a Alvarado (34-3, 23 KO’s), aunque él cayó a la lona en el noveno round. Al final los jueces favorecieron al mexicano con dos tarjetas de 117-109 y una de 119-108.

Márquez fue a la ofensiva en todo momento y, cuando Alvarado, quien subió al ring con un pantaloncillo con un bandera mexicana y otra estadunidense en cada costado, intentó contragolpear se llevó la peor parte.

Hasta el séptimo round Márquez conectó los mejores impactos, pero no se vislumbraba un potencial nocaut. Fue hasta los segundos finales del octavo que logró una combinación de izquierda y derecha en el rostro que tumbó a Alvarado y lo puso con medio cuerpo por fuera del encordado.

El estadunidense se levantó y el referí Pat Russell indicó que la pelea podía continuar, antes de que pudiera haber más acción se terminó el round y Alvarado fue literalmente salvado por la campana.

Márquez entró más ofensivo en el noveno, tratando de buscar el final de la batalla, pero fue sorprendido con un recto de derecha que lo sentó sobre el ring provocando el conteo del réferi. El mexicano se levantó de ese momento, el único problemático que tuvo, y después ambos bajaron la intensidad de sus ofensivas.

Deja a Pacquiao en suspenso

Tras concluir la pelea, el presentador de Top Rank preguntó a Márquez si aceptaría la quinta pelea contra Pacquiao, a lo que el tricolor no dio una respuesta concreta. “Vamos a descansar relejarnos, vamos a tomar una decisión que será buena para mí, para mi familia y para la afición mexicana”, dijo Márquez.
