On July 27, 2017 Bradley stated he would announce his retirement. In a statement, referring to his fight against Ruslan Provodnikov, he said, “A few weeks after the fight, I was still affected by the damage that was done. My speech was a little bit off. I was slurring a little bit. But after about two months, I cleared up and I have my wits about me now.” On August 6, 2017 he officially announced his retirement from professional boxing after nearly 12 years in the sport. The announcement came when he posted the following on his Instagram page:
Bradley fought and beat the undefeated boxer Jessie Vargas on June 27, 2015 at StubHub Center, California, USA on HBO World Championship Boxing to capture the WBO Welterweight Interim title. He won the fight by unanimous decision.
Bradley gave Manny Pacquiao a rematch on April 12, 2014. Ironically, the second fight was closer than the first contest according to many pundits. Pacquiao pulled away on the scorecards in the second half of the fight winning with a unanimous decision (118–110, 116–112, 116–112), ending Bradley's undefeated streak.
Following his first career loss to Manny Pacquiao, Bradley fought former WBA welterweight interim champion Diego Chaves of Argentina, in Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada on December 13, 2014. The official scorecards led to a controversial split-draw (Julie Lederman 112–116 for Chaves, Burt A. Clements 115–113 for Bradley, while Craig Metcalfe 114–114 for an even). Harold Lederman, HBO's unofficial judge, had it 116–112 for Bradley and the Compubox statistics heavily favored a Bradley win as they stated he had connected with 225 of 572 punches versus the 152 of 570 blows Chaves connected with.
In October 2013, Bradley was ranked as the world's third best active boxer, pound for pound, by The Ring magazine. He is particularly known for his trilogy of fights against Manny Pacquiao, whom he fought in 2012, 2014, and 2016.
Bradley won a close unanimous decision against Ruslan Provodnikov on March 16, 2013 for the WBO welterweight championship. Provodnikov was given the fight to serve as an easy target for Bradley, who was looking for a confidence booster after a controversial fight with Manny Pacquiao. Bradley came out on the attack early, fighting in an uncharacteristically aggressive fashion. Provodnikov made him pay, tagging him with hard shots in the first round, and staggering him in the second. Bradley said post-fight that he was concussed by a shot Provodnikov hit him with in the first round. Bradley boxed more conservatively as the fight wore on, winning most of the middle rounds. In the last round, Provodnikov again hurt Bradley badly and appeared ready to deliver a KO, but with time running out Bradley deliberately took a knee to get called for a knockdown. He was easily able to beat the count (which finished only seconds before the final bell) as a result and hung on to win the fight on points. Bradley was impressed by Provodnikov's power and said that "he's going to be a world champion someday."
Bradley's bout with Ring #3 ranked pound for pound, Ring #5 ranked junior lightweight and WBO junior welterweight champion Juan Manuel Márquez was held on October 12, 2013 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bradley was awarded a split decision win, in a fight where he wobbled Márquez in the final round with a left uppercut en route to winning via split decision with scorecards of 116–112, 115–113 and 113–115.
Bradley fought Manny Pacquiao on June 9, 2012 for Pacquiao's WBO welterweight title. Bradley won a controversial victory over Pacquiao by way of split decision, with two of the judges scoring it 115–113 to Bradley and the other 115–113 to Pacquiao. The decision ended Pacquiao's 7-year undefeated streak and gave Bradley the title. According to Compubox, Pacquiao was ahead in punches landed, power punches landed, percentage of punches landed, and percentage of power punches landed. As a result of the controversial scoring, a special five-judge panel was created by World Boxing WBO President Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel to review the fight. All five judges of the panel reviewed a video of the bout and all 5 judges scored it in favor of Manny Pacquiao. Despite the panel's findings, WBO rules do not allow the decision to be overturned. The most the boxing body can do, according to Valcarcel, is to order a rematch.
On January 29, 2011 Timothy Bradley defended his WBO junior welterweight title in a unification fight against fellow light welterweight title holder, WBC champion Devon Alexander, at the Silverdome Arena in Pontiac, Michigan. Bradley won via 10th round technical decision.
Timothy Bradley joined Top Rank and made his debut for them on November 12, 2011 defending his WBO junior welterweight title against former lightweight titlist Joel Casamayor, 40, on the undercard of Pacquiao vs. Marquez III.

In his HBO Debut, Bradley was scheduled to face Luis Abregu in a non-title bout at welterweight. However, Bradley's promoter told ESPN.com that he had made a deal with Golden Boy Promotions to fight Interim title holder and knockout artist: Marcos "El Chino" Maidana, at the Agua Caliente Casino in Rancho Mirage, California, only a few miles from Bradley's hometown of Palm Springs. The fight was scheduled to take place on June 19, 2010 but was postponed after Maidana had suffered a back injury during training for the fight. As a result, the initial plan to move up in weight was made and the fight with Abregu was back on, scheduled for the Agua Caliente Casino, along with a set fight date of July 17, 2010. Although clearly out-sized, Bradley proved too quick and too skilled for the hard-hitting Abregu winning by unanimous decision, with the judges' scorecards reading 119–111, 118–112 and 117–113.
On April 4, 2009 Bradley fought Kendall Holt to unify his WBC and Holt's WBO titles. Bradley was dropped in the first round by a huge left hook and was badly hurt but regrouped and outboxed Holt for most of the fight, before being sent to the canvas again in the 12th round. Nonetheless, Bradley got up and finished the fight. He won the fight by unanimous decision and became the new WBO champion.
In April 2009, Lamont Peterson defeated French boxer Willy Blain for the vacant WBO Interim title, making him mandatory to full titleholder Bradley. The fight took place at Agua Caliente Casino in Rancho Mirage, California on December 12, 2009. Bradley dropped Peterson with an overhand right in the third round. However, Peterson got up and landed hard left hooks to the body. Peterson cut under the left eye from an accidental headbutt in round 12. After 12 rounds, the judges scored the fight 120-107, 119-108 and 118-110 in favour of Bradley, retaining his title and handing Peterson his first professional loss. The bout was televised as a main event on Showtime Championship Boxing. After the bout, Peterson told Showtime, "My game plan was to win the first round, but in the middle of the first round, I got hit real hard by a couple of right hands. It really bothered me. I lost the round, I fell behind, I got reckless. I couldn't make it up. I gave it all I had. He's a great champion."
Bradley finally got his chance for a full world title when José Luis Castillo failed to make weight in a title eliminator for the WBC super lightweight belt. He then won the WBC super lightweight title by defeating British fighter Junior Witter on May 10, 2008 in Nottingham, England. Bradley's bank account was down to $11 when he made the decision to go to England to fight Junior Witter. Bradley came into the fight a 6–1 underdog against Witter. During the fight, Bradley controlled most of the action, and dropped Witter in his corner during the 6th round. Though the fight was scored a close split decision for Bradley, most observers and analysts thought Bradley should have comfortably been given a unanimous decision verdict. One judge scored the fight 115-112 for Witter and the remaining two judges scored the fight 115-113 and 114-113 respectively, for Bradley.
Bradley was on a vegan diet for his fights from 2008 onwards. He said that he first tried the vegan diet while preparing for his fight against Junior Witter. In this fight, which Bradley won by split decision, Witter was knocked down in 6th from overhand right. After the fight Bradley was proud of the results and maintained his diet. He added that when he was on the vegan diet, he felt superior over any athlete who gets in the ring because it gave him energy, helped with his reflexes and balance. This diet was abandoned prior to the Jessie Vargas fight in 2015.
Bradley had his first professional bout on August 20, 2004 knocking out Francisco Martinez in the second round. In his rise through the ranks, he won the WBC youth world welterweight and super lightweight crowns. He also beat future IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez by a unanimous ten-round decision.

On December 30, 2015 Bob Arum announced that Manny Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38 KOs) would fight Bradley for the third time in what would be his last professional fight. The fight was set for April 9, 2016 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. It was reported that Pacquiao would earn $20 million and Bradley would earn $4 million from the fight. In front of 14,665, Pacquiao knocked Bradley down twice and outpointed him throughout the fight, winning by unanimous decision after all three judges scored the bout 116-110 in his favor. ESPN.com scored it for 117-109 also in favor of Pacquiao. Bradley was down once in round seven and again in round nine. In the post fight Bradley spoke about how patience was the key difference in the fight, "Manny was very strong in there. Very heavy punches. He was also very patient. I wasn't professional enough to stay patient myself, and I walked into shots." CompuBox statistics showed that Pacquiao landed 122 of 439 punches (28%), whereas Bradley connected on 99 of his 302 punches thrown (33%). Many experts, including both fighters called the rubber fight the best of their trilogy. The fight drew 400,000 buys on HBO PPV, generating $24 million. This was considered a low number, as the main event's purses alone equalled $24 million. Pacquiao received a special version of the vacant WBO International title in recognition of his win.
ESPN reported on September 8, 2015 that Bradley would make the first defence of his WBO title against 29 year old former WBA lightweight champion Brandon Ríos (33-2-1, 24 KOs) on November 7 at the newly refurbished Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Bradley also headlined the last card to take place at the Thomas & Mack Center on October 12, 2013. Negotiations were on and off for the fight and nearly broke down completely in August. Due to Sadam Ali being Bradley's mandatory, the WBO stated they would not sanction the fight unless Top Rank made a deal with Ali's promoter Golden Boy, to negotiate a step-aside fee.
