Pacquiao vs Bradley Bout

Manny Pacquiao hasn’t fought since November 2011 which is normal it the world of professional boxing but one thing is clear, he has been training full time and looking forward to his return to the ring. Timothy Bradley last boxing fight was the same night as Pacquiao’s last fight since they were both on that same fight card at the MGM Grand Arena. Both actually won their respective fights and now approximately 7 months later they will face each other. Pacquiao boasts an impressive pro boxing career standing at 54 wins (38 impressive knockouts and 16 by decision) and 3 losses but at almost 35 years old critics claim this Pacquiao vs Bradley fight may be his hardest match up yet. 

As for Timothy Bradley, he’s currently at the peak of his career at a young age of 28 and holds an undefeated title with a pure 28 wins in his professional boxing career. This Pacquiao vs Bradley fight is Timothy Bradley’s opportunity to jump from where he currently is at into another Mayweather/Pacquiao type of boxer who brings in $30 Million+ to fight on pay per view. I have a gut feeling about this one and I think Bradley has the drive that Pacquiao no longer has and sometimes that is all it takes to defeat a better opponent. I’m not stating that I’ll be sticking in Bradley’s corner I’m simply saying if Bradley wins in the Pacquiao vs Bradley bout it wouldn’t be so shocking to me since I can see where he’s coming from.
