The biggest and most important fight of
Palm Springs, California native Timothy Bradley’s life lay ahead
less than 2 weeks away as he will face off with Filipino and
worldwide super star Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in
Las Vegas for Pacquiao’s WBO welterweight title.
Bradley enters the fight with a perfect
record 28-0 (12) and the confidence to go along with it. He has won
titles 3 times in the junior welterweight division, and is looking to
add another as he moves up in weight to face his most formidable
opponent to date.
Bradley recently said, “The time is
already here, the moment. I am ready to take the throne. I’m
excited. Training and preparation have been going great. I am in the
best shape of my life.”
Regarding Bradley’s training,
specifically, he offered, “When we are done I will have sparred
about 160 rounds. I have been training for almost three months now. I
am on weight. I left the gym at 147 pounds today so I will probably
be coming in kind of light the day of the weigh-in maybe 145 or 144.
I am just eating a little bit more and I feel great. I am confident
and I am ready to deliver.”
Bradley’s manager, Cameron Dunkin
added, “This is the biggest fight for me and I am just so proud of
Tim. I went and say him last Friday and like Bob said, his confidence
is just unbelievable. He’s taking this real seriously and I think
you’re going to see a new champion really soon.”
With nary an air of uncertainty,
Bradley stated, “I am so confident I am just ready. I am in the
best shape of my life. I have put in the time in the gym - and for
the last four years I have been studying this guy, looking at this
guy, I have admired this guy. This is my time. An opportunity of a
lifetime and I’m going to give it 110%. I’m putting it all on the
line so you are going to see a great fight. If you miss this fight
you are going to miss some greatness. At the end of the day I’m
putting it all on the line. I’m not in there to survive. I’m not
in there for a paycheck. I am in there to win. This is the beginning
of a new career. This is like my first fight all over again. That’s
the reason I wanted to be with Top Rank because they build superstars
and this is my opportunity right here.”
