Timothy Bradley not wearing socks might be the problem during the fight

During the last time Timothy Bradley faced Manny Pacquiao was on June 2012 at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Timothy Bradley chooses not to wear any socks with his shoes during the fight. This resulted to injuring Bradley’s feet because his foot is moving around his shoe from the sweat. Bradley didn’t opt to use his socks on the fight because he didn’t even bother using socks during his training, but he didn’t expect that the surface at MGM Grand is much harder compared to his training gym.

Timothy Bradley’s foot work didn’t work well because his feet were moving around inside his shoes. Timothy Bradley’s balance was compromised because he didn’t have the support he needed because of not wearing socks.

Timothy Bradley believes that he would have beaten Manny Pacquiao a lot easier if he does wear socks that time. 

For me, I believe in Timothy Bradley’s reasons because he is not used to it and he is not comfortable with it. I am a little bit disappointed that his camp didn’t even bother to check the arena first before they’re going to fight. So If I were in Bradley’s camp I would check the arena ahead of time to determine whether socks are needed or not.

Pacquiao vs Bradley Interview Analysis

As I was watching the interview of Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley with Max Kellerman, I can see in Bradley’s eyes that he is very serious in this rematch happening on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. In Manny Pacquiao’s side feels like very humble but very awkward to express his emotions. I really don’t like Manny Pacquiao’s answers, he is not as confident as before. 

Timothy Bradley said that the only way to defeat him is to knock him down and that there’s no other way. He said that Manny Pacquiao “Hunger Days” or the aggressiveness is no longer there, and he can’t get it back and it’s gone. That Manny’s killer instinct is gone, he’s different fighter than before. Nobody blame Pacquiao for what he is now, but c’mon it’s boxing and it is a sport where you have to out boxed your enemy or you’ll be knock out.

In Manny Pacquiao’s eye seems boxing is for him a business. I didn’t find the confidence with his answers; he’s will to win the fight and his determination to bring pride to Filipino people. I believe Manny Pacquiao is very much dedicated with he’s religious beliefs that makes him soft spoken and a good looking man.

On November 15, 2003 Manny Pacquiao defeated the Mexican boxer Marco Antonio Barrera via Technical Knockout at the Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas for the Ring Featherweight title. Marco Antonio Barrera is at his peak of his career during that time and he was one of the top fighters during that era, but Manny Pacquiao shows no mercy with that win.

The easiest fight for Manny Pacquiao is against Ricky Hatton which ended into a 2nd round Technical Knockout win on May 2, 2009 at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada for the IBO Light Welterweight title.

32 Days Left – Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 with Max Kellerman

Max Kellerman believes that the Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao is now softening and that the killer instinct was gone. Timothy Bradley also said that the “Eye of the Tiger” of Manny Pacquiao was nowhere to found. 

During that interview, as a boxing blogger I also believe that Manny Pacquiao is not serious in this fight. He only wants to prove to everyone that he can give a good “SHOW” to the viewers. Honestly I am not in favor with his answer, we fans needs to see a boxing not a comedy show or whatsoever. Manny Pacquiao’s hunger days are gone; he isn’t as hungry fighter as before. I know Manny Pacquiao is a God Fearing person but it is boxing, it is a sport so don’t show any sign of weakness in this kind of sports.

For Timothy Bradley’s side, he is focused and determined to prove to everyone that he’s the best fighter out there. I honestly believe that Timothy Bradley will come out victorious this time without any controversy. Bradley’s eyes looked so eager, his will to fight and win was seen in his eyes. 

I am not Bradley’s fans but we’ll never know who will come out victorious. 

Here’s the interview of Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley with Max Kellerman

33 Days Left – Timothy Bradley’s 2013 boxing journey

The year 2013 was a year for Timothy Bradley. During that year, he was fighting the guy named Ruslan Provodnikov (23-2-0) and won via unanimous decision for the WBO welterweight title at Home Depot Center, Carson, California. You might not hear of him until he was defeated by Bradley and their fight was voted as a Fight of the year by the boxing writers of America.

Also during year 2013, Timothy Bradley faced the boxer that created a knockout win over the no.1 Pound for Pound king Manny Pacquiao and the future hall of famer Juan Manuel Marquez (55-7-1). Timothy Bradley won via split decision for the WBO welterweight title at Thomas & Mack Center, Las Vegas, Nevada. 

With these 2 fights, Timothy Bradley was able to show to everyone that he is a flexible boxer. He was able to outbox these two fighters which mean he could be one of the feared fighters this time. With these wins, Bradley believes that he is one of the best pound for pound boxer in the world if not the best.

34 Days Left – Timothy Bradley’s determination will make him victorious

Everyone one thinks that Timothy Bradley is the underdog of their rematch against Manny Pacquiao but they’re wrong. As a boxing fans and a boxing blogger I know that Timothy Bradley will prove to everyone that he never give up and he will come out victorious. We all know for a fact that Bradley won the first fight against Manny Pacquiao but that was a controversial result knowing that Manny landed more punches against Bradley. But when I was watching the reply, there’s no doubt that Bradley almost dominated every single rounds even if Pacquiao tend to be more aggressive than Bradley.

Knowing Manny Pacquiao’s speed is his only advantage against the strength, power and determination of Timothy Bradley. The reigning WBO welterweight champion is still has the advantage because of his youth, his defensive ability and his killer instinct.

One thing that I learned from their first fight is that Manny Pacquiao is getting slower and weaker while Timothy Bradley is getting stronger and more effective fighter than Manny Pacquiao. I am no fans against Timothy Bradley but I respected him as a boxer because of his skills.

Although Manny Pacquiao is one of the greatest boxer I ever know, it doesn’t mean that he will easily demolished Timothy Bradley. 

Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley rematch is on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States and will be aired by HBO pay-per-view.

35 Days Left– Timothy Bradley goes Vegetarian

There is 3 weeks more remaining for the match anticipated fight, the Pacquiao vs Bradley for the WBO welterweight champion at the MGM Grand Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.

Timothy Bradley level up his training not only on his strength but also his nutrition, the foods and juices/water he intake. Bradley said that he does not need any special juices or food to make him strong but said he is now a vegetarian. It is hard not eating meat when you get used to it said Bradley. 

Eating the right foods and maintaining his condition is the first priority of Bradley. He really wanted to be in shape every day to have energy during the day. Being healthy can make you feel 100% safe to injuries and any future health problems.

Timothy Bradley’s trainer Jose Diaz said in an interview that Manny Pacquiao chance to win against Bradley is only to knock him out and if Pacquiao cannot make it then he will surely lose the fight. Manny Pacquiao looked so dominating during the first time they meet but failed to win the judges, so this time Manny Pacquiao should double his efforts to secure a win.

Timothy Bradley will try to hold the WBO welterweight title which he took from Manny Pacquiao.

36 Days Left– Pacquiao wanted to win all 12 rounds if knockout doesn’t worked

Manny Pacquiao is expected to be aggressive this time saying he wanted to set goal to win all 12-rounds against Timothy Bradley on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States for the WBO welterweight championship.

The Filipino boxer says in an interview that during their first fight, he dominated mostly of the rounds maybe 10 out of 12 rounds but it wasn’t enough for the judges, so this time he needs to stepped up and need to control all rounds. 

That decision is necessary if Plan A doesn’t work which is to knockout Bradley as much as possible. But Manny Pacquiao will have a hard time defeating Bradley especially knocking him out because of Bradley’s extraordinary strength and his unusual boxing defense.

Manny Pacquiao’s performances are getting weaker and he becomes lazy fighter which is obviously seen when he loses to Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez. For me, Pacquiao is not as confident unlike before because he really wanted to cover up his pretty face and avoid any damage to it. Boxing not unlikely a sport nowadays, it is much as considered as business. 

The fight is getting nearer and more exciting to the fans especially for me. Can’t wait to see it.

37 Days Left– Miguel Cotto choose Manny Pacquiao over Timothy Bradley

The former light middleweight, welterweight, light welterweight and middleweight champion Miguel “Junito” Cotto (38-4-0) from Puerto Rico is picking Manny Pacquiao over Timothy Bradley in their upcoming match on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States for the WBO welterweight belt.

Miguel Cotto is the former opponent of Manny Pacquiao last November 14, 2011 at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA who lose via Technical Knockout for the WBO welterweight title. Cotto believes that that the Filipino Congressman can defeat Bradley this time. Miguel Cotto is under the supervision of his trainer/coach Freddie Roach.

Miguel Cotto told in an interview that even if they have the same coach they still have different boxing gym and they didn’t spar yet. Miguel Cotto denies sparring Pacquiao even if both of them have incoming fights because of different training schedules. 

Miguel Cotto’s last opponent was against Delvin Rodriguez which was easily dominated by Cotto and won via Technical Knockout for the WBO light middleweight title.

Meanwhile Miguel Cotto next opponent is against Sergio Gabriel Martinez (51-2-2) on June 7, 2014 at Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, United States for the WBC middleweight title.

38 Days Left– Timothy Bradley is 100% ready to Win the Fight

Nobody wanted to lose the fight especially the Dessert Storm Timothy Bradley. The American boxer is very confident that he will win the rematch happening on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.

The current WBO champion Timothy Bradley said the he assures everyone that there is no controversy this time and it will be a clean fight compared to their first match up.

Timothy Bradley already know how to attack and counter attack Manny Pacquiao since the American boxer already been in the ring with him. Bradley already knows what to do, and what to expect in their upcoming rematch. Bradley knows Pacquiao’s capability and intelligence as a boxer, so Bradley can maximize and use it.

Timothy Bradley was not impressed during the latest Manny Pacquiao’s win against Brandon Rios. Pacquiao is getting weaker and slower compared to their fight. Manny Pacquiao’s footwork is not as impressive also and his boxing IQ is lesser now compared before.

The pressure is on Bradley’s side since people are in favor in Manny Pacquiao. Bradley should stepped-up and make sure that he will knockout Pacquiao to avoid in further issues.

Manny Pacquiao should make sure that he is 100% ready for this fight, because Timothy Bradley is gonna beat him in any possible ways.

40 Days Left – Pacquiao must use his jab frequently against Bradley

The hall of fame boxing coach Freddie Roach is telling Manny Pacquiao to land more punch during their rematch. 

Manny Pacquiao should use his jab always which he has recently ignored in every fight to find an opening for a possible left straight or a right hook.

Freddie Roach said that jab can creates more opening which can set up Pacquiao to unleash his solid punches, and his most powerful left straight.

Manny Pacquiao’s jab can knock out any opponent if use it wisely and more efficiently.

Pacman’s jab is fast, strong and quick which can make him gain more score and led in scoring and a possible knockout. 

Pacquiao’s new conditioning coach Justin Fortune renews his contract for this fight. Coach Justin Fortune is responsible for the win of Manny Pacquiao versus Brandon Rios.

41 Days Left – Unimpressed win By Pacquiao against Brandon Rios

Timothy Bradley’s camp especially his trainer didn’t like the performance Manny Pacquiao is showing during his last bout against Brandon Rios and he’s last 4-5 fights. As a former pound-for pound king Manny Pacquiao is getting slower than he was before when he competed against the champions like Antonio Margarito, Miguel Cotto, and Oscar De la Hoya.

Unlike Manny Pacquiao’s other performances like how he crushed the face of Antonio Margarito, how he broke the face of Miguel Cotto and how he knockout Oscar Dela Hoya is now a different Manny Pacquiao. Pacman seems to be unimpressive during his last 4-5 fights especially the fight against Juan Manuel Marquez where he was knockout during the last second of the 6th round. Brandon Rios was not even hurt and didn’t gain any damage. 

Remember that Timothy Bradley won the fight against Juan Manuel Marquez while Marquez knockouts Manny Pacquiao, so to foresee the result is quite clear which is in favor for Bradley. And it is amazing how he fought Ruslan Provodnikov with his power via unanimous decision.

Odds are in favor for Manny Pacquiao, but Bradley’s camp is going to beat the odds.

42 Days Left – Pacquiao vs Bradley betting the odds

The much awaited fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley is coming close as it is a month away before the clash. While Bradley won the first fight this doesn’t make him famous and gain the advantage because if you’re going to bet for Pacquiao you need $200 to win $100, and if you’re betting for Bradley you will need $100 only to win a $175. 

The odds are in favor for Manny Pacquiao which makes a little pressure for him. Manny Pacquiao knows that it is a do or die situation for him because if he loses then it will be the end of his career considering he lose during their first fight. 

While Pacquiao is busy preparing at Wild Card Gym in United States, Bradley is also on his 4 weeks of training against Manny Pacquiao. Nobody wants to make it easy as both fighters are coming of strong during their individual training. Pacquiao proved that he is serious because during their training he makes his sparring partner nose bleeds, while Bradley is coming of strong and more comfortable with his condition unlike his other fights.

The rematch will be viewed by HBO Pay-per-view on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada. Tickets are now available online via

43 Days Left – Timothy Bradley 8 weeks of Training for Pacquiao

The new WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley is ahead of training for his upcoming rematch against Manny Pacquiao on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas Nevada, United States. Timothy Bradley in an interview said that he is doing well so far during his training.

Timothy Bradley will likely to spend around 8 weeks of training which 4 weeks late during their first match is expected to be dominant this time. The WBO welterweight champion realized that he was reaching its peak early than expected, so he decided to trim his training.

Timothy Bradley doesn’t have any weight problems and said that it is the least concern for them. Bradley’s current weight at 160lbs is expected to lose 15 pounds more in the couple of weeks.

As I watched how Bradley trained, it is very difficult to tell that Manny Pacquiao can easily win the fight. It will be a bloody fight considering how strong the “Dessert Storm” is during his training.  To tell you honestly, Manny Pacquiao will have a hard time defeating Bradley this time, I’m a boxing fan and have been blogging for almost 5 years now that is why I know it’s difficult for Pacquiao’s camp.

44 Days Left - Manny Pacquiao training at Wild Card Gym

The Filipino Pride Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, Coach Freddie Roach and Team Pacman headed their way to Los Angeles last March 10, 2014 from General Santos, Philippines. 

Today, Manny Pacquiao started his phase 2 training at Wild Card Gym for its upcoming fight against Timothy Bradley for the WBO welterweight championship on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.

The first meeting between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley didn’t look good as the result came controversial. Pacman leading every round against the “Dessert Storm” and looks to end the fight early when Bradley was close to get knocked down during the early rounds. But Bradley stays the 12 round match and beat Pacquiao in a split decision and steals Pacquiao WBO welterweight champion belt.

As I was watching the replays, I found out the Bradley is tough and strong fighter. Bradley didn’t let any rounds go in favor against Manny Pacquiao, he fights back, throw strong punches, and landed more solid body punches against Pacquiao. And Pacquiao is so aggressive and dominant just like before during the early rounds but slowed down during late rounds. Manny Pacquiao landed many solid straight and hook punches while avoiding Bradley’s counter attack.

This rematch is going to be explosive as Timothy Bradley will prove to everyone that he is truly the winner and stronger fighter than Pacquiao. And Manny Pacquiao will try redeeming his former WBO welterweight belt and also proving to his fans that, Manny Pacquiao is unstoppable and that he is still the no.1 Pound for Pound champion.

45 Days Left – Manny Pacquiao badly need to get serious this time

Bradley vs Pacquiao 2 - Manny Pacquiao remember that he was leading every round during their first match against Timothy Bradley. Pacquiao thought he won the fight easily because he controlled the fight very well.

Timothy Bradley felt Pacquiao’s power punches during the early rounds, and then during 3rd or 4th rounds Bradley run-off.

He was very surprised over the results, but that is just a part of the game – there’s a winner and a loser.

Pacquiao was impressed over Bradley’s last performances especially beating Juan Manuel Marquez and Ruslan Provodnikov. Bradley is more experience in his division (welterweight division). He is also a stronger fighter than before, even if Pacquiao is still faster than him.

The only way for Bradley to win this fight is to knockout Pacquiao. We know that Bradley cannot outbox Manny but 1 punch can change the situation. Even if Pacquiao throws a lot of punches than Bradley, only one solid punch can knockout Pacquiao just like what happened during the Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 rematch.

Manny Pacqiuao badly want to get the belt he lost to Timothy Bradley.

Manny Pacquiao is very excited about the rematch, especially fighting in Las Vegas because Las Vegas attracts great boxing fans and Manny Pacquiao has lots of memories there.

46 Days Left – Manny Pacquiao may retire after rematch against Bradley

Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 - We all know that our stamina change as we grow older, this is normal for everyone and all things must come to an end.  Sad to say for Manny Pacquiao and all his supporters, his boxing career maybe in dilemma on April 12, 2014.

No doubt about it, the Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao is an 8th time WBO world champion rated at flyweight, super bantamweight, featherweight, super featherweight, lightweight, light welterweight, welterweight, light middleweight.  Even if it was a controversial decision, Manny Pacquiao already lost to Timothy Bradley last June 2012.

As I was searching in the internet for some reactions, almost everyone believes that Manny Pacquiao will win the fight, except for the legendary boxing commentator/writer Larry Merchant. Although he still fan of Pacman, but he believes that Timothy Bradley could easily win the fight.

Larry Merchant said that Timothy Bradley is a younger fighter, smarter, stronger and more determined than Pacquiao. Bradley is an undefeated fighter which proves to everyone that wherever he goes, he will be successful. Even though Timothy Bradley does not have a natural talent compared to Pacquiao, but he works his ass off to become unbeaten fighter.

If Manny Pacquiao loses to Timothy Bradley on April 12, 2014, Pacman will consider it as a first step to his retirement because nobody wants to see his fight again.

47 Days Left - Manny Pacquiao's Training Camp Infested with Snakes

Bradley vs Pacquiao 2 - Manny Pacquiao already started his training camp since last week under the supervision of his Filipino coach Buboy Fernandez and Nonoy Neri. Manny Pacquiao’s preparation was disrupted after several members of his training camp have discovered deadly and poisonous snakes inside the facility where Manny Pacquiao was training.

The Acharon Sports Complex where Manny Pacquiao is currently on training was infested with deadly snakes; in fact they found out that one dog was killed after it was bitten by one of the snakes lurking in the complex.

Manny Pacquiao’s camp found the situation disturbing especially the safety of its staffs, sparring mates like Steve Forbes, Kendall Holt, Lydell Rhodes and maybe Miguel Cotto and especially Manny Pacquiao.

But Pacman’s camp already suggested to immediately cleaning the area as soon as possible to prevent any further issues to the local government.

Manny Pacquiao’s under the supervision of his Filipino coach Buboy Fernandez engaged in a seven rounds with the gloves and continue working on his stamina before they hit the real training under his American coach Freddie Roach at Wild Card Gym, in Los Angeles.

49 Days Left - Pacquiao and Bradley Looking for a Knockout Win

Timothy Bradley declared as the winner during their first fight and Manny Pacquiao felt disappointed about the split decision result in favor for Bradley. So after the controversial match last June 2012, Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley agree to have a rematch on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand Las Vegas, Nevada, United States and prove their fans that they’re the best fighter.

Last June 9, 2012, the WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley made the results very controversial. Many believed that Manny Pacquiao should have won the fight which is very clear. Manny Pacquiao throws a lot of punches and power punches compared to Bradley. The controversial results caused anger to Pacman’s camp which led to an investigation, while the World Boxing Organization also conducted a split investigation. Based on the investigation results, Manny Pacquiao was declared as the winner of the match, but Timothy Bradley was allowed to retain his title.

The Pinoy Boxer told in an interview that they have discovered new strategies and techniques that can knockout Timothy Bradley. Manny Pacquiao is never been motivated in this upcoming rematch because of the two consecutive loss. 

While, Timothy Bradley is also prepared for this rematch and said in an interview that he also has a new game plan to stop Pacman and remove any doubts to the fans. Timothy Bradley is a different fighter unlike the first match with Pacquiao, he is now stronger, more aggressive fighter and he is rooting for a knockout win against Manny Pacquiao.

50 Days Left - Slim Chance for Bradley to win against Pacman

Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 - With a few days remaining before the rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, a lot of speculations are beginning to come-out. This because of the controversial results during their first fight which resulted into a split decision in favor for Timothy Bradley. 

According to what boxing experts and coach, fans and viewers, Bradley has no chance of defeating the Filipino pride Manny Pacquiao. Because I am not impressed with Bradley’s recent matches against Juan Manuel Marquez and Provodnikov and with his slow performance I think it is not enough to dominate over Pacman. 

But because of this criticism he received during his fights against Manny Pacquiao, Juan Manuel Marquez and Provodnikov fuels him to be stronger, and determine enough to retain his WBO welterweight belt.  

But even if Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is coming out as a champion, this rematch will determine a lot to in regards to his career. Manny Pacquiao got knockout by Juan Manuel Marquez during their 4th fight but he manage to defeat Brandon Rios last 2013 in Macau via unanimous decision and retain his form. But this doesn’t made him a winner because after his two consecutive defeats he manage to find an opponent that only had a little chance of defeating him. If Manny Pacquiao really wants to prove everyone that he is the no.1 pound for pound boxer then he needs to get the job done against Timothy Bradley.

51 Days Left - Pacquiao vs Bradley Breakdown

The rematch between Manny Pacquiao (55-5-2) and Timothy Bradley (31-0-0) is now set on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. Manny Pacquiao was defeated in a split decision against Timothy Bradley for the WBO welterweight championship. So I’m going to point out the facts about the fight, Manny Pacquiao throws a lot of punches in every round and Timothy Bradley stay on defense all the way with some counter-punches only but a lot boxing experts, fans, viewers watched and it was clear cut winner in favor for Pacquiao. 

To start, Timothy Bradley received a gift while Manny Pacquiao was robbed in my opinion. But who knows, that the rematch won’t turn out differently? Timothy Bradley has already improved his boxing skills and maybe could pull off an upset against Manny Pacquiao this time. We all know that Manny Pacquiao has the speed advantage and Bradley barely hiding himself with some counter-punches but that is not the case when he is fighting against Juan Manuel Marquez, Bradley landed more punches and out-boxed Marquez but had fewer power punches connected. 

For Bradley vs Provodnikov fight, it is a clear win for Bradley. I saw Bradley throwing more punches and more power punches which left Provodnikov swelled and bruised his face.

And for Mannny Pacquiao, he was brutally knockout by Juan Manuel Marquez during their last fight in June 2012. We saw Pacquiao comfortably throwing more punches but Marquez was not careless enough and throw a winning knockout punch in the last second during the 6th round of the fight.

And his fight against Brandon Rios, we saw a different Manny Pacquiao, he is more careful this time and more aggressive which give him a unanimous decision win.

Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 - A rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley are now set on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, and Timothy Bradley’s coach Joel Diaz said that they’re going for a knockout win.

Joel Diaz believes that Timothy Bradley might have a hard time winning the judge’s decision against Manny Pacquiao considering Pacquiao is the favorite between the two. And if the rematch ends in a decision, there is a possible chance that Manny Pacquiao will be crowned as a champion considering that boxing is now a business and is because “there’s more money to be made in Manny Pacquiao”.

So, to prove who the better fighter is, then a knockout is a must for Timothy Bradley.  Joel Diaz is confident that Manny Pacquiao will have a hard time fighting against Timothy Bradley considering Bradley’s training even if the welterweight champion (Timothy Bradley) suffered an injury on his feet after the fight against Manny Pacquiao.

The trainer believes that a knockdown or a knockout is a must for both fighters to please everyone especially the judges. 

During their last match, Bradley didn’t feel any knockout punch and maybe Manny Pacquiao already lost his motivation and his killer instinct is gone. 

Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley’s last match ended in a controversial decision. Manny Pacquiao is aggressive and landed more punches comparing to Timothy Bradley but the judges awarded Bradley as a winner.

53 Days Left - Manny Pacquiao signed a two-year $75 million contract with Top Rank

Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 - The 8th time world boxing champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao of the Philippines has reportedly signed a two year $75 million contract extension with Top Rank promotions according to reports.

Manny Pacquiao’s contract with Top Rank promotions will expire at the end of this year 2014 and reportedly agreed to spend the remaining years of his boxing career under the Bob Arum’s Top Rank Promotions.

If that deal has been finalized, then if would go a long way towards helping Manny Pacquiao’s tax problems because the Philippine government froze all his accounts. And if Pacquiao does re-sign with Top Rank then there’s a possible chance of fighting boxer like Floyd Mayweather, Danny Garcia, Saul Alvarez, Amir Khan, Adrien Broner, and Lucas Matthysse. Garcia, Broner, Canelo and Matthysee might have a chance of fighting Pacquiao if their promoters at Golden Boy Promotions could work with the Top Rank Promotions and if Mayweather’s promoter will work on Top Rank Promotions.

For me, boxing fans have no problems watching Pacquiao fighting boxers like Provodnikov, Rios, Alvarado or Bradley but if they continue fighting them repeatedly without any reasons then fans will get bored. It would be great if Bob Arum could add more fighters so that Pacquiao does not stuck with the same old guys because there is no point fighting guys with same result or dull performances.

54 Days Left - Provodnikov: Pacquiao Should be Aggressive against Bradley

Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 - The former WBO welterweight and WBO light welterweight champion Ruslan ”Siberian Rocky” Provodnikov (23-2-0) from Russia worried  about Manny Pacquiao’s performance on the ring, the stated that Pacquiao should be aggressive enough to avenge his loss to Bradley last June 2012.

Ruslan Provodnikov knows both fighters, Provodnikov was a sparring partner for Pacquiao before his fight against Bradley and Provodnikov is close to winning against Bradley during their fight last March 2013, he even knocked down Bradley during the last round but loss via unanimous decision in favor for Bradley.

At one point, Ruslan Provodnikov even considered Pacquiao as his next challenger but Pacquiao settled for a rematch against Timothy Bradley.

Even though Manny Pacquiao emerged to dominate the whole 12 rounds during their last fight, Pacquiao did not go for a knockout that resulted into a questionable split decision. Provodnikov said “I think if Pacquiao will not be aggressive, then he will see exact thing that we saw in their first fight”.

Manny Pacquiao already promised to do all the best he can and will try to knock out Bradley to avoid any questionable decisions.

Provodnikov said that “Pacquiao has a slight advantage to win. On the other hand, if the fight remains close then Bradley has a good chance to win”.

55 Days Left - Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 - Who is the underdog?

Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 – Timothy Bradley (31-0-0) was surprised that he is the underdog against Manny Pacquiao (55-5-2) in their upcoming fight at MGM Grand Las Vegas, Nevada, United States on April 12, 2014. The fact that Timothy Bradley won the fight against Manny Pacquiao last June 2012 and Pacquiao just got knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez (55-7-1) and Timothy Bradley beat Marquez is hilarious to Bradley’s camp.

Everyone especially Bradley’s camp thinks it is hilarious how the people select Manny Pacquiao to win the fight considering how he beat Pacquiao and Marquez.

Timothy Bradley will try to end the speculations and prove to everyone that he is better than Pacquiao. Either way, it is Pacquiao or Bradley likely going to win convincingly enough to please the viewers worldwide.

For years, it is known that human’s get weaker starting in their 30’s and considering Pacquiao’s Age at 35 years old while Timothy Bradley 30 years old, it might not be easy for Pacquiao. However, Pacquiao’s speed is always the advantage for him while Bradley’s young age and determination is his key to win the fight. 

For Pacquiao, he should learn a big lesson by realizing that he can’t afford a wreckless fight because of his knockout loss to Marquez. Pacquiao must be aggressive enough to impress the judges and win the fight. For Bradley, defense is the key and a counter attack enough to hurt Pacquiao.

56 Days Left - Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 Tickets 70% Sold

Pacquiao vs Bradley 2- Top Rank promoter Bob Arum was pleased to say earlier last week for the Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley rematch happening on the 12th of April, 2014 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA that 70% of the tickets have been sold day after the tickets goes on sale. Promoter Bob Arum believes that the remaining tickets will be sold within this month or before the month ends. 

If Manny Pacquiao wins the fight and brings a good pay-per-view result then I’m guessing that the Pacquiao vs Bradley 3 will be possible. For me, Manny Pacquiao should step up his fight for him to impress the judges and the viewers for the possible 3rd match. 

As a boxing enthusiast, I agree with Bob Arum that the tickets will be sold out in just a day because there’s a lot of Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley fans in the United States especially in California and from the Philippines. Timothy Bradley is a good match for Pacquiao since Bradley is undefeated fighter with a record of 31-0-0 and 12 wins by knockout. 

Timothy Bradley last two matches is a very controversial, Bradley still is not seen as having legitimately beat Manny Pacquiao for us fans and viewers and he’s close call win over Ruslan Provodnikov (23-2-0) was questionable. But for me Bradley is a strong and intelligent fighter which makes him undefeated.

Whatever the result is, I’m thinking of the next opponent of both fighters. Bob Arum said that Juan Manuel Marquez (55-7-1) or maybe the biggest surprise is fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0-0) which until now hasn’t faced Manny Pacquiao or Timothy Bradley.

Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 – The Nevada State Athletic Commission will handle the advance drug testing for Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley fight happening on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada.

The last fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley had no random drug testing before the bout but Pacquiao’s first time dealing with the additional drug testing was during his last fight against Brandon Rios (31-2-1), and after Brandon Rios failed his post-fight drug test he was suspended for five months by the China Professional Boxing Organization. On the other hand, Timothy Bradley is very vocal and didn’t resist about the additional drug testing.
