This week's title-fight schedule:
WBO welterweight title -- Las Vegas, Nev.
Timothy Bradley (champion) vs. Juan Manuel Marquez (unranked)
Bradley (30-0, 12 KO): Second title defense; Third fight in Las Vegas (2-0)
Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KO): Fifteenth title fight (9-4-1); Held titles at 126, 130, 135 and 140
Fitzbitz says: "The last two men to defeat Manny Pacquiao seem on different levels. Bradley simply isn't as skilled as his 40-year-old foe. If Marquez doesn't turn old, he wins." Marquez by decision
Vacant WBO featherweight title -- Las Vegas, Nev.
Orlando Cruz (No. 1 contender) vs. Orlando Salido (No. 3 contender)
Cruz (20-2-1, 10 KO): First title fight; Lost only career fight in Las Vegas (TKO 5)
Salido (39-12-2, 27 KO): Tenth title fight (4-4, 1 NC); Lost WBO title in last fight (January 2013)
Fitzbitz says: "Cruz is a headline-worthy story and worthy of praise, but he doesn't really belong on the same plane as an experience titleholder and challenger like Salido." Salido by decision
Last week's picks: 1-0
