You can add 140-pounder Timothy Bradley to the list of young fighters looking for a big payday.

Bradley had an easy time on Saturday in Rancho, Mirage Ca. defending his junior welterweight title against Lamont Peterson. The judges scored the bout 120-107, 119-108, 118-110.

Bradley (25-0, 11 KOs) has put together an impressive resume. With Manny Pacquiao now out of the division, he just might be the best 140-pound man in the world. He has victories over Junior Witter, Kendall Holt and Nate Campbell.

So what's next for Bradley? Unfortunately, no one to speak of. Ricky Hatton would probably look for a bigger name like Juan Manual Marquez or maybe a rematch with Paulie Malignaggi.

For now, Bradley needs to sit tight and take on all comers until he can really get the big-time, big-name money fight he's been seeking.
