Timothy Bradley finally has a fight for the fall, as Top Rank will formally announce a welterweight scrap between the former two-division champ and former titlist Brandon Rios this week.

Bradley (32-1-1, 12 KOs) was last in the ring this past June, as he earned a decision win over Jessie Vargas in Carson, California.  Meanwhile, Rios  (33-2-1, 23 KOs) got revenge on Mike Alvarado in their rubber match in January, scoring a stoppage win.

Top Rank will hold a press conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday and will also announce that Vasyl Lomanchenko (4-1, 2 KOs) will be in action that night as well.

HBO will televise the fights from the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
