Timothy Bradley
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.”
