In the fighters' corners are two sharp and widely respected trainers. In Bradley's case, Joel Diaz works in perfect concert with his charge; both are on the same page for this fight. Beristain, Marquez's trainer, acknowledged that planning this fight will be a headache because of Bradley's technique. Should they plan for Marquez to fight aggressively, or lure in Bradley and lean on Marquez's counterpunching chops? Whatever the answer, Beristain can be expected to choose wisely and ensure Marquez the best possible chance to earn his fifth belt in as many divisions.
