|Bradley in wheelchair at post-fight press conference.|
The 28-year old was taken to hospital after the fight and his manager Cameron Dunkin revealed on Sunday that he had a swollen, twisted right ankle and his left foot was fractured.
Bradley arrived at the post-fight press conference in a wheelchair and explained to the press that he had stepped on referee Robert Byrd's foot in the second round and "felt a pop." If this is true and Bradley really did fight nearly of the bout with these injuries then it is a remarkable achievement. Even to last 12 rounds with 'Pacman' under these circumstances is extraordinary.
"I went back to my corner and said I think I've broken my foot," told Bradley. His trainer Joel Diaz said it up was up to him; he could either quit or carry on in the biggest of his career.
Bradley decided to carry on and the decision obviously paid off. He is now a two-weight world champion and still undefeated in 29 fights. He also has a win over one of the greatest fighters of all time.
