Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley
Well, at least one reader agrees with me that Timothy Bradley is a live dog vs. Manny Pacquiao...
Eerily familiar…
K9, do you recall back in January of 1994 when JC Superstar lost to Frankie Randall? At the time Chavez was a massive Mexican national idol, much like Pacquiao is in the Philippines. Chavez was pound-for-pound a monster, much like the Pac-Monster. But right before his fall to Randall, Chavez’ skill-set started to slip. JC Chavez struggled mightily with Pernell Whitaker and looked like he lost a step—nothing to be ashamed of there as he was out-classed by a better boxer. Similarly, Pacquiao struggled mightily with JM Marquez, for the third time. Both men were/have been more and more distracted outside of the ring—the cause of these distractions is more notorious than others, allegedly.  In any case, Pacquiao’s career trajectory is very similar to that of Chavez’.
I am coming to the conclusion that Tim Bradley may be Pacquiao’s Frankie Randall. Randall was hard as nails, so is Bradley. Randall was not afraid of the Chavez’ mystique, it does not appear that Bradley is much concerned about the Pacquiao aura. Bradley is starving for recognition just as Randall was.
Yep, to me, everything points to a massive upset. The clock is ticking on Pacquiao’s run, just as it did for JC Superstar.
