|Manny Pacquiao – Timothy Bradley Anticipation Builds
By John Novoselac, Doghouse Boxing (May 23, 2012) Doghouse Boxing
Just over 2 weeks away at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, the
most anticipated boxing match of the year will take place between reigning WBO
welterweight champion and world wide super star Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KOs)
of the Philippines and undefeated former unified junior welterweight champion
and Palm Springs native Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12 KOs).
It is the type of fight boxing fans have seen before, a
rising undefeated challenger looking to knock off one of the sport’s biggest
names, in an attempt to make one for himself.
Pacquiao, himself, saw his star and global brand receive a
significant boost after destroying former boxing king Oscar De La Hoya, and he
knows Bradley is looking to do the same.
Pacquiao said, “Timothy
Bradley is undefeated and hungry. He
does not know how to lose. This will be
a great fight – champion vs. champion.”
Long time Pacquiao
trainer, and 4 time Trainer of the Year award winner offered, “I’m just glad
Manny is fighting an undefeated fighter who is more concerned about winning,
than he is about protecting his record.”
Bradley, to his
credit, realizes the position he is in, and said, "I have always been an
underdog all of my life. But I know how
to win. I talk winning. I go into the
ring and win. Manny Pacquiao is the
world's greatest fighter. After I win,
the rematch will be in November."
Bradley’s coach Joel
Diaz had this to say: “Timothy Bradley is ready for war. No one can prepare for his type of combat.”
