Timothy Bradley retains his WBO Welterweight Title Belt after a split decision victory over Juan Manuel Marquez.
The Champ improves to 31-0, 12 knockouts in his career. The fight was scored 115-113 Marquez, 115-113 Bradley, 116-112 Bradley.
Throughout the entire fight Bradley played up the underdog role in a crowd that was pro Marquez and chanted "Marquez" and "Mexico" the entire night.
But Bradley held his ground and said after the fight he won by being a smart fighter. He was asked after the fight about what's next, with speculation looming about a potential rematch with Manny Pacquaio or a showdown with Floyd Mayweather.
But for now, Saturday October 12th was The Desert Storm's night in Las Vegas.
