I've got Bradley on points. Who do you got?

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

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

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.

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.

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.
