A decorated amateur with busy hands, Bradley burst onto the world stage with a decisive victory over Kendall Holt in April. He was dominating his fight with Nate Campbell before Campbell used a cut over his left eye to slip out of a fight that was declared a no contest. Bradley also battered highly regarded prospect Lamont Peterson in December to cap a spectacular year and establish himself as the new face of the junior welterweight division.
