ESPN Re-Signs Former Champion Timothy Bradley As Analyst
Timothy Bradley will remain in the ESPN booth for Top Rank Boxing fights.
Bradley has been with ESPN since 2016. He has been a part of the broadcast team along with play-by-play ace Joe Tessitore and Hall of Fame elect Andre Ward. Bradley will continue to fulfill color commentary duties with the new contract extension.
Here is what ESPN senior vice president of production and remote events, Mark Gross, had to say about Bradley’s contract extension during a press release.
“We are thrilled to have Tim continuing his role with Top Rank on ESPN. His expertise, knowledge and passion for the sport makes him an incredible part of our Top Rank on ESPN team,” said Mark Gross, ESPN senior vice president, production and remote events. “Last June, boxing was the first live event production back on our air following the pause in sports caused by COVID-19. As we entered unchartered territory in live production, Tim was able to quickly adjust to a “new normal” and showed a deep level of range and versatility as an analyst, first by working remotely from home studios and later by covering the sport from the Top Rank bubble in Las Vegas.”
Bradley also discussed staying put at ESPN.
“I am extremely blessed and thankful toward ESPN and Top Rank boxing for placing their faith in me,” said Bradley. “I look forward to continuing our legacy as the staple of boxing alongside the entire ESPN and Top Rank family, from those of us on screen to those behind the scenes. I will continue to make sure that the fans get the real.”
