Pac hasn’t lost a step. He would be much better in a Bradley rematch… So would Bradley of course — but he’d find a blizzard of punches in his face… I’m up for the fight if it happens.Posted December 31, 2013 6:34 pm
He will just lose again.Posted December 30, 2013 6:11 pm
The first fight was very close but yes PAC won. I would love to see rematch and sorry Nate but Bradley will be fine as PAC has lost a step.Posted December 30, 2013 1:43 pm
all five of Mayweather’s fights between the start of 2009 and mid-2013 were contested in front of EMPTY seats.

Just a boxing fan
Agree with Yo Momma. Boycott this fight and all FM and MP fights until they face each other.
All these BS gotta stop. We all know it’s FM and MP that needs to fight!Posted December 30, 2013 2:17 am
It doesn’t matter how many empty seats there are… It’s how many butts you put in the seats — and what you can charge them to place their butts there… You charge to fill all the seats at the highest price possible … and then set up your PPV the same way.
The day any promoter does this to perfection is the day he’ll also win the lottery… You’re always going to leave money on the table, but the objective is not perfection.. It’s pulling in mind-blowing revenues and Floyd has the TOP-2 all time.Posted December 29, 2013 11:47 pm

Bradley’s day’s are numbered.Posted December 29, 2013 10:23 pm
I could see this being a pretty good bout, but I am assuming that Bradley brings a better game than the last time that he fought Manny. Bradley came perilously close to being KO’d last time. He was saved by his peculiar ability to be out on his feet and basically still fight. He’s done this a few times and I think that when he does this it surprises his opponents long enough to get his senses back. That trick has run its course though – I’m sure that Manny or any other top-level fighter would floor him if presented with the same situation again. I think that Bradley has more experience now though and would outbox like a madman against Manny and minimize the chance of a KO.Posted December 29, 2013 8:25 pm
“According to Nevada State Athletic Commission records, all five of Mayweather’s fights between the start of 2009 and mid-2013 (against Juan Manuel Marquez, Shane Mosley, Victor Ortiz, Miguel Cotto, and Robert Guerrero) were contested in front of EMPTY seats. Even with 1,459 complimentary tickets being given away, there were 139 EMPTY seats for Mayweather-Guerrero. More troubling were credible reports that Mayweather-Guerrero registered only 850,000 pay-per-view buys.”
I THINK BOYCOTTS may pressure Mayweather into fighting Pacquioa once and for all.Posted December 29, 2013 7:31 pm
If khan doesn’t get the Mayweather fight then he will defo fight pacman in 2014Posted December 29, 2013 7:20 pm
Manny all he has to do to win is hold Bradley arm so he does do that 5-7. Taps that they counted each time they hold each othe, they did this about also 5-8 times. And not go asleep for 3 rounds too.Posted December 29, 2013 7:18 pm
pacquiao Should fight Bradley in China where the locals love an asian fighter and where there is real money to be made compared to USA and there is very little tax takings making it a win win for both fighters.Posted December 29, 2013 7:00 pm
Not only did Pac win the first fight he gave Bradley a beatdown. Bradley’s always been a forward moving fighter who wins rounds by applying consistent pressure. Yet he went into retreat for the first time. The deluded Pac haters claimed he decided to “box” but he decided to run for his life.Posted December 29, 2013 6:16 pm
Floyd would have fit in perfectly playing with the Dodgers instead of being a boxer. He excels at minimizing the accomplishments of others while simultaneously dodging adverse and dangerous competition and attempting to convince anyone who will listen that he has fought the best fighters in his career thus supposedly making him an “all time great.” Anyone see the games Floyd plays? He’s not serious about boxing per se. His only interest in boxing is to make the most money he can and in the process turn boxing into some form of entertainment equal to the WWE (wrestling). Lately, Fake Floyd the Flake’s fights are on par with exhibitions, nothing pro, just entertainment.Posted December 29, 2013 11:16 am
Dude….Manny was the champion, and Bradley as the opponent did NOT dominate Pac, and did not look like a champion taking the title and leaving little doubt he won.!! Furthermore, did you not notice how dejected and withdrawn Bradley appeared after the 12th round????? He looked like Broner who knew damn well he had lost. Bradley even telling his trainer, “….I did my best.” It wasn’t until the decision was announced that Bradley’s dispostion changed to that of a Lotto winner. Even Holyfield weighed in that night clearly stating he felt Pac won. But that aside, the international community knows who won. Bradley is the only current champion with zero losses who has actually lost twice. He know’s it but given the money that is involved, he will never admit.Posted December 29, 2013 10:54 am
Pac Man beat Bradley in the first fight. Everyone who has two good eyes knows that. The thing is, fight fans had been up in arms about Pacquiao-Marquez III a few months earlier, which WAS legitimately disputable, and Manny was ripe to cop a bad decision, which he duly got against Tim Bradley. If there are 3 straight judges for any Pacquiao-Bradley II fight, Manny will win. Manny will look to take it out of the judges hands anyhow…Posted December 29, 2013 10:41 am
Tark, whatever Roach may say as Pacquiao’s trainer doesn’t matter.
Manny never dominated Bradley and Bradley has all the heart in the world but he punches have not power. Manny needs to K.O. Bradley before they will give him justice. The same was Marquez finally got justice on him and put him to sleep so he cant be robbed by these judges, C.J. Ross is a joke, she had Mayweather on a split decision with Alverez and he schooled the kid all fight…. Manny needs to KO Tim simple as that….Posted December 29, 2013 5:43 am
Make it happen? Manny should have got the nod 1st time rnd. I do think it was closer than some people thoughtand no.2 will b closer than people think also. Manny 60/40 4 me in this rematchPosted December 29, 2013 4:38 am
Pacman beat Bradley very convincingly in their last fight.
This just doesn`t interest me.Posted December 29, 2013 3:48 am
Bradley won the lotto
Pac beat Bradley, no doubt about it and so did Ruslan.Posted December 29, 2013 3:29 am
Pac beat Bradley, no doubt about it. One judge even resigned…………did Void tell his judges to score the fight for Bradley? Did Arum tell the judges to score the fight for Bradley? Something is fishy……………
Pac will knock Bradley out. Void will continue to run from Pac and make more and more excuses………Posted December 29, 2013 12:22 am
Pac may have won on all of our score cards, but he still lost the fight, and followed that up with a knock out loss, which a lot of his fans denounce just as much as the Bradley loss. Marquez is 40 and should call it quits… Bradley just beat Marquez, now it’s time for Pacquiao to beat Bradley.Posted December 28, 2013 11:35 pm
Pac could may have won on everyone’s personal card,; but he didn’t win on the cards that counted at the time. On top of that Bradley just beat the guy that flattened Pacquiao. Of corse Pacquiao/Bradley should happen, and it should be both these guys next fights, with the winner leaving top rank, and getting their biggest payday in their lives with a Mayweather fight…Posted December 28, 2013 11:32 pm
Besides, Bradley is the only fighter with zero losses who has actually lost twice. He received a Russian man’s whipping to the nth degree.Posted December 28, 2013 11:30 pm
Tackyon- You would be happy to know even Holyfield stated unequivocally that Pac won that fight but then, your two cents mean nothing to the millions who witnessed the fight and are in agreement with Holyfield. Bradleys face before the decision came was eerily similar to Broners after his fight with Maidana in that he appeared dejected knowing full well he lost. As soon as the decision was known Bradley’s expression changed to that of a person who won the Lotto.Posted December 28, 2013 11:18 pm
Teddy That’s odd Pac lost 2 of his last 3 one by Brutal KO. Bradley vs Pac still looks 50/50 to me.Posted December 28, 2013 9:46 pm
TARK shut up, you’re an idiot.Posted December 28, 2013 9:32 pm
Campbell doesn’t have a lot of insight…
Obviously he has more than Boxtra, but he stood there like a statue and let Robbie Pedin hit him smack on the chin, knocking him TFO.
That didn’t stop Boxtra from picking him to beat Victor Ortiz. Nate was routed in that one. The man can’t box that well and never could.Posted December 28, 2013 9:01 pm
But you’re no boxer at all, Boxtra$$wipe so your “insight” is LESSER than Campbell’s.Posted December 28, 2013 8:45 pm
PAC Bradley rematch I see the fight 50 /50 Bradley has learned a lot sense his first Pac fight while Pac has been blasted.Posted December 28, 2013 8:28 pm
Pacman is not going for any KO of Bradley.. He’s not stupid… He’ll try to hand him the kind of whipping that Lara put on Trout… Rigondeaux told Lara to win each round so big Trout’s chlidren would know who’s winning … And from their crying I guess they did.
“So who do you think won that round MFing judges?”Posted December 28, 2013 8:20 pm
Well Nate Campbell is already ruined SO I GUESS he may have some insight on the subject.Posted December 28, 2013 8:05 pm
Definitely! Pacman will shout out Bradley and still will lose the fight and Bradley needs to do is to demand to have the same Judges who rob manny of the win and then surely Bradley will be ruin because PAC is going for the KO so just to shut up the three blind mice.Posted December 28, 2013 6:59 pm
“Anonymous”- Is that you Floyd Mayweather?Posted December 28, 2013 6:35 pm
you guys don’t know s*** about boxingPosted December 28, 2013 6:35 pm
Haimat… Pacman did a great job in the Rios fight… It’s up to Rios to fight because it takes 2 to fight… He didn’t fight… He couldn’t.
Pac hasn’t lost a damned thing… That last Marquez fight woke him up.
Roach… “This is by far the best camp Manny has ever had. He’s faster, sharper, and more explosive than ever.”… He said that before the fight but it sure looked true with the effort Rios put up… Anything Rios did he found 5 gloves in his face.
Maybe it’s the realization that he owes 68 million in taxes and has $5.Posted December 28, 2013 6:20 pm
Pacquaio is old and has lost the love for fighting it seemed in his last fight. He won every round but he showed nothing of the explosiveness of a few years back when he dominated guys like Cotto, Clottey, De La Hoya and Pacman.
He showed up against Rios and put in a workman like performance.Posted December 28, 2013 5:48 pm
Ha- did you have to take it that far? Just with that comment alone you show how people of this country are that’s why zombies are in you guys are just to dumb to notice since you traded in your common sense for the word of the man, zombies because most people here walk around like zombies no emotion,no smile, no heart, walking dead,……… Zombies!Posted December 28, 2013 5:36 pm
I agree with Nate campell for the fact that Bradley has somehow fooled himself into actually believing that he beat pacman! I mean you don’t have to come out and say I got my ass handed to me in everyway possible, but you can say he was the better man, in a rematch Bradley might even get over confident and get caught bad! That’s what I think campell is trying to sayPosted December 28, 2013 5:31 pm
Nate Campbell can STFU. I showed him a picture of Robbie Peden and he soiled his frilly panties.Posted December 28, 2013 5:10 pm
PAC WILL WALK RIGHT INTO ANOTHER RIGHT HAND
Bradley KO Pac? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. He couldn’t KO your grandmother.Posted December 28, 2013 4:59 pm
Pac clearly isn’t as effective against boxers. Bradley may be able to improve on his last outing against Pac. He did have 2 bad feet/ankles in that fight.Posted December 28, 2013 4:49 pm
The last time I checked PAC man doesn’t have the best chinPosted December 28, 2013 4:10 pm
some random guy
There really isn’t anyone else for Pacquiao to fightPosted December 28, 2013 4:00 pm
It doesn’t matter what Nate thinks, Bradley is currently ranked higher than Pacquaio, and he’s also a title holder… Pac needs to fight Bradley, and Bradley is more than deserving if the fight. The possible out come of the rematch is irrelevant…Posted December 28, 2013 3:58 pm
Nate is dead right I honestly hope there’s no rematch im a fan of both and the reality is if Pac turns it up on Bradley he’d definitely ruin him. Truth is Pac didn’t want to hurt Bradley in the 1st fight but he’d be forced to in a rematch. Id rather see Bradley take good fighters around his level.Posted December 28, 2013 3:37 pm
I wouldn’t write Bradley off he has a point to prove and will be extremely motavatited for this fight his whole reputation depends on it. Bradley took everything pov threw at him so I would say his chin is good, he dose lack power though that’s his big problem he will not be able to keep manny of him if he stands toe to toe. Bradley will simply hit and run over and over, but PAC should do enough for the win. I would expect the judges to be decent too least thing we will want is another wrong decision. Overall outcome will be the same sort of fight as last time but Bradley looking better but manny will win by MDPosted December 28, 2013 3:28 pm
I surely doubt Pac could walk through Bradley…no way. Their previous fight was much closer than many believe…though I believe Pac won it. If he tries to walk through Bradley though, he may be the one getting “ruined”.
It’s not an easy fight for either fighter and I believe Bradley can beat Pac a second time around.Posted December 28, 2013 3:27 pm
BRADLEY won! Look it up. Quit your whining already. I don’t care about 4th world opinions. You guys can’t even help yourselves when a natural disaster occurs. Your the welfare country of the world who can’t even take care of your own. And you know why, guys like the congroidsman in office. 50 million dollars he owes in taxes there.Posted December 28, 2013 3:25 pm
I thought Pac won the first fight, but I’m not so sure he will win the rematch. It’s definitely a fight that needs to be made. The winner could be determined by who has the better game plan and implementation of game plan. It’s always hard to count Bradley out of a fight.Posted December 28, 2013 2:49 pm
Manny Pacquiao simply dominates Bradley if they fight.Posted December 28, 2013 1:37 pm
This pundit says.., “For the most part Pacquiao dominated every round of the fight.”
You don’t dominate rounds for the most part. You either dominate a round or you don’t dominate it… Pacquiao won clearly but not in dominant fashion. Tim fought with 2 bad ankles and still managed to win 4 or 5 rounds, depending on how generous you were to him.
Tim has to do a lot better in the rematch. Pacquiao doesn’t have the power of Provodnikov and won’t be wasting Bradley. I promise you this WILL be a boxing match…NOT a case of Pacquiao flattening Bradley.
Pacman is going to use speed, angles, activity, and mastery in an attempt do dominate on the scorecards — and Tim isn’t going to let himself look like a cheap sparring partner in there.
Tim is going to be boxing his ass off like never before — and trying to make a tough and close contest out of it.. Bradley is nobody’s fool.. He has wins over Witter, Holt, Alexander, Peterson, Provodnikov, Marquez, and Pacquiao and is still undefeated … If he beat Pac again he’s going after the big dog.Posted December 28, 2013 1:08 pm
I think bradley doesnt get the due respect he deserves. The fight against provo proved he is the real deal. However in the rematch i think Tim will be better. Since their last fight Tim has improved pac has repressed a lil but not much. Tim will box and move and due to his condition i think he will outwork pac. Unless he tries to go toe to toe w pac he can outhustle pac and eek out a decision. Or get k.o.ed if he trades w pacPosted December 28, 2013 12:41 pm
Remember Bradley doesn’t actually have to “win” the rematch in the conventional sense.
MNboxingFAN – Sean
The fans… announcers… boxing media… and an independent committee of judges put together all agree that Bradley lost that fight and that it was highway robbery. What the fight again and look at Bradley before the decision is announced. He was more shocked than anyone that he won! After the final bell he was apologizing to his team saying he did his best… but looking clearly depressed and not happy. If they fight again I hate to say it, but I hope Manny knocks him out. Bradley’s a great guy and tough, but he’s in the Marquez column now as being delusional when reflecting on his fight(s) with Pacquiao. (Marquez being delusional thinking he won the other three fights with Manny.) If Pacquiao knocks out Bradley then maybe he can force Marquez into giving him another rematch. I hope so. That was a lucky punch! Marquez was getting the piss beat out of him before landing it.Posted December 28, 2013 12:21 pm
If I’m a judge in this fight I give Manny a little extra each round to make up for last time. Bradley will have to win very convincingly in order to beat Manny this time around. Not sure how he plans on doing this.Posted December 28, 2013 12:20 pm
Bradley was already beat 1st time.Same will happen again but minus the bent judgesPosted December 28, 2013 12:18 pm
I am thinking Bradley wins another close one.Posted December 28, 2013 12:14 pm
