News broke last week that current WBO Welterweight champio Timothy Bradley had split with long time trainer Joel Diaz. Well, Bradley announced this evening via Instagram that he will now be trained by Teddy Atlas in preparation for his upcoming bout against Brandon Rios on Nov. 7. This is quite the interesting move on the part of Bradley as the last time Atlas, commentator for the PBC on ESPN boxing series, worked as an active trainer was with Alex Povetkin back in 2012. Bradley has been criticized in recent fights for making his bouts tougher than they need to be, too often fighting instead of boxing. Will Atlas provide the spark that Bradley feels he needs? I’m sure boxing heads will definitely keep an eye on this move by Bradley. We will all find out on Nov. 7 in terms of what new we will see from Timothy “The Desert Storm” Bradley.

  1. What a wild turn of events, who knew? Maybe Teddy was thinking, “Hey, Virgil Hill gets to do his color commentary gig on PBC and still train guys, how about me?” Seems like a combustible pairing.
