Marquez's trainer, Nacho Beristain, said before the fight was finalized that he didn't want Marquez to face Bradley because of his style, which is considered cunning and complex. It was an instructive moment, affirming that Marquez isn't suited to all opponents. Bradley, however, is a one-size-fits-all fighter. His speed, movement and willingness to exchange, if necessary, are the mainstays of an undefeated career -- one that includes wins in which he has adapted to the power of Prodovnikov, the unpredictability of Pacquiao and the elusiveness of Devon Alexander.

Advantage: Bradley
