Timothy Bradley could be headed toward another war.

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum told USA TODAY Sports that a welterweight bout between Bradley and Brandon Rios is being negotiated for winter on HBO. ESPN first reported the possibility.

“That’s the fight we want to make (for Bradley), and we ll see if we can make that happen,” Arum said. “And if not we’ll do it against Sadam Ali.”
