    Clinton got the inside scoop on when Bradley is planning to fight again.

    After meeting former President Bill Clinton, boxing champion Timothy Bradley was still buzzing about the encounter a few hours later.

    "He's the coolest dude, you don't even know how cool he is," Bradley said. "It's almost like I've known him my whole life. There's just something about him."

    Bradley, a four-time champion who defeated boxer of the decade Manny Pacquiao in June, was taking part in the walkathon for the Health Matters conference, and said he wasn't expecting to see Clinton. As part of the Health Matters theme, Bradley and Clinton talked about a vegan diet.

    "He came up to me and said, 'How's that vegan diet going,' " Bradley said. "I was like 'Wow, how'd he know I was on a vegan diet?' "

    Bradley said he and Clinton talked about iron supplements and other crucial minerals to take while on a vegan diet, and how beneficial B12 vitamin injections are for giving them energy. Clinton told Bradley the vegan diet made him feel like he was in his 20s again.

    Bradley said the conversation was brief, but impactful. Clinton told Bradley that he heard he was at the walkathon and made the effort to meet the 29-year-old boxer.

    "It was one of the best experiences I've ever had," said Bradley, who fought before a worldwide audience when he defeated Pacquiao in June. "He was there and there were all his secret servicemen. It was a surreal moment.

    "It was cool. I feel like, you should come to my house, meet my family and friends and hang out, maybe listen to music. I don't know what kind of music you like. He was so cool, so chill."

    Since Bradley won a controversial split decision over Pacquiao, he had been inactive. Clinton asked when Bradley would fight again. Bradley said they are working on a March 16 fight in Los Angeles, at either Staples Center or the Home Depot Center. Bradley said they're working on an opponent, but didn't want to mention any names.

    Bradley said he didn't get a chance to invite Clinton to his next fight.

    "If he wants to go, I got tickets, front row," Bradley said laughing.
