I've got Bradley on points. Who do you got?
PacMan seems unprepared for this. Be interesting to see how this plays out. Anyway I'm going with Bradley in this one.
Unless this is some media trick to get us all to watch > midnight!
The rational thinker in me says Pacquiao by (Arum influenced) decision. He's the golden goose for Top Rank.
Should Pacquiao win I can sigh with derision as he comes up with new and innovative ways to avoid beating of a lifetime that Money Mayweather would put on him.
Also, WTF is this with Pacquiao slow rolling in getting gloved. #unprofessional
Who here knew bradley is a vegan?
That's impressive. No meat or milk protein? He's ripped for sure.
let's go already
Pacquiao is not taking this seriously enough...If Bradley was more of a power puncher I would definitley bet on a KO...however I will go with Bradley in a UD
what a horrible singer
Both of them.
my ears are bleeding
Bradley also trains in Michigan shirts...
that is veron topic, so OT?
BTW Pacman is a beast. Bradley looked better, but Pacquiao hits hard!
anyone know why bradley was wearing a michigan shirt in his training video?
Because he's a winner
No Idea maybe someone gave it to him when he fought Alexander in Pontiac.
Bradley is a damn good fighter, not the guy Manny wants to take lightly. Especially since he wasn't very sharp v. Marquez.
He won't be playing this song for his next fight.
Buffer must be damn near 70, but he never ages.
Close enough for a cigar.
Per Wikipedia, Mr. Buffer is 67.
off his voice?
Pacman looked bad for 2 minutes and 30 seconds and then he won the round.
Pacquiao...sucks for 2 mins. lands three shots...wins the round...no wonder boxing is getting killed by mma of late. Jeebus.
I don't know if I'd say it is being killed. Mayweather and Pacman fights routinely outsell UFC PPVS.
This is boxing's problem. Twice a year they can outsell the UFC. The other 12 to 15 ppv that UFC runs and the deal with Fox differentiate their product exposure.
Agreed although I'd say it's more around 4 times a year. Boxing should put out better free tv fights to develop interest in some of the very talented young fighters that are out there.
A lack of quality american heavyweights is what is killing boxing right now. People love to see the big punches and big KOs. The best fights now are at lower levels. It's going to take more heavyweights to bring back boxing.
Amir Khan, Chad Dawson, Andre Berto, Adrien Broner, Gamboa, and Danny Garcia just to name a few. The problem is these guys aren't that famous because all of their fights are on PPV and most people don't want to pay to see them.
Heavyweight has been one of the weaker divisions in boxing going back for decades. Tyson was the last big draw at heavy and it wasn't like he was facing a bunch of great competition.
Honestly, I've lost interest in recent years. But I'd still rather watch it than this real life version of professional wrestling everyone's into now.
If this fight goes late rounds I think Pac has it.
these guys are too light and too experienced for a KO
bradley is going down....too many straight lefts.
I am intrigued by the HBO crew minimizing Bradley hitting Pacquiao. It seems that Bradley is hitting him well but the HBO crew won't acknowledge it.
because they have watched a lot of fights and they understand that Bradley lacks power and nothing he is hitting is landing cleanly...I thought Pacman wasn't taking this seriously enough, but now it looks like he didn't need to be fully committed.
All about clean shots and power shots. When you get hit clean, with hard punches, all your jabs get thrown out the window
Manny looks too confident.
Where are all the guys predicting a Bradley win?
here, rethinking their predicitons.
Pacquiao looking good
he was saved by the bell
Mayweather and pacquio
Watching this fight makes me consider how easy a fight Pacquiao would be for Mayweather. It's no wonder Pacquiao ducks him in such a cowardly way.
Pac is playing with him. that fight would be great, but not a sure fire bet for Mayweather
Not a boxing fan, but Pac man looks amazing. His hands defending his head is perfect and the announcers love his power.
Bradley is a good fighter but he's nowhere close to Mayweather who is the best fighter of his generation. Pacquiao is the last truly marketable fighter that Top Rank has in its roster. So he ducks Mayweather, refuses blood testing for the steroids, won't accept $40 million to fight Mayweather (who draws better on PPV)...ducks him. Pacquiao is undeniably talented but being the second best of your generation means you have to duck the bet guy if you want to claim you're the best.
Bradley has a ton of heart, but if he had the power of Mayweather, this may be over.
Right. Because Mayweather has demonstrated bone-crushing power throught his career....right? Manny would walk through all of Money's jabs
Cotto got his shots on Money...and Pacman punches a LOT harder.
