Manny Pacquiao has carried the sport of boxing for more than a decade. Excitement, drama, historic fights have all become a part of the fighter most observers believe is the greatest fighter of all time. As we near the most anticipated fight in boxing history, the buzz has become louder and louder throughout the world. The gyms, restaurants, local businesses, all the media outlets including TV stations, Radio, and all the social networks have blown up. Earlier today, Boxing Legends Julio Cesar Chavez and Marco Antonio Barrera came by to cast their praise on Manny Pacquiao. What an unbelievable scene to see a three of the best ever meet inside the famous Wild card gym. Legends like these two only added to other legends visits since Manny Pacquiao arrived for his training camp in Los Angeles. The city of angles is beside itself as the world wants to see Manny Pacquiao. I took a break earlier in the day to do some jogging and set up a similar route to Manny’s route . I took my 3 dogs along with me, who by the way are named Pacman. We had a great jog. I returned home and put on my Manny Pacquiao six pack video and worked on my abs. I luckily caught a short clip of Manny doing some sparring followed by an interview. Manny is spitting fire, and trust me, there will be brutality and carnage on April 12. The man is in high gear, and his punches are coming faster than the human eye can see. I really do hope all boxing fans are tuning in to see this legend in action. He is a legitimate master piece that will not be around forever. When Manny Paacquiao retires, it will be like seeing Babe Ruth retire or more importantly like seeing a ROCKY movie without Sylvester Stallone. Life will not be the same, and Boxing will never recover. This fight against Timothy Bradley will be epic. Bradley has said things that have motivated Manny Pacquiao like never before. There’s something inside of Manny that no one can really see, but I can see it. There is as ROCKY said to PAULIE in the ROCKY BALBOA ” There’s still some stuff in the basement.” Manny Pacquiao is going to be dangerous. I can see Manny Pacquiao walking out with his smile, smiling and looking out at the crowd. He climbs the short stairs and weaves under the ropes and steps inside the ring to a thunderous applause. Car and earthquake alarms are set off. Manny’s standing ovation continues for 15 minutes. Timothy Bradley enters and no one sees him. Police try escorting him out, but realize he’s Manny’s opponent. Myself and the rest of the Manny Pacquiao fans have brought Manny Mania alive. My tickets have arrived, and my victory party is set to start three days out from the fight. Fasten your seat belts people, The champ is here. Manny is the best!Posted March 25, 2014 8:39 pm

CMS – “You never completely recover from a shot like the one he took from Juan Manuel Marquez”. Not true. Many boxers come back from KO’s. Its the sustained beatings over rounds that do more damage.
I don’t see the decline in Pacquiao because he really beat Bradley, was beating Marquez until that punch and won handily against Rios. These losses are deceptive.
If Pacquiao loses to Bradley I will say call it a day. It was a great run. Until then, I’m willing to give Pacquiao another chance.Posted March 25, 2014 5:24 pm
Its only right Pacquiao should have a star next to his name…..All thanks to Te TerdoPosted March 25, 2014 5:12 pm
Hidalgo, if Freddy Roach was suspicious of what Ariza was putting in Manny’s drink, how come you are not?Posted March 25, 2014 4:51 pm
BTW, Titopa, I don’t care what Marquez did in regards to PED testing. The burden of proof lies with the accuser(s). If you accuse someone of stealing from you, you have to prove they did. They don’t have to prove they didn’t.Posted March 25, 2014 4:50 pm
Manny is past his prime. He will never again put together a streak like he did years ago. Each fight might be Manny’s last. Makes it more exciting to a boxing fan, but Pac’s fans have to be sitting on pins and needles each time he fights now. He might be one solid shot away from retirement. You never completely recover from a shot like the one he took from Juan Manuel Marquez. A war against Bradley might spell doom for Manny. He’d better try to end it early, but Desert Storm might not cooperate.Posted March 25, 2014 4:49 pm
“HIDALGo, are you saying that you believe Morales looked to be in fine physical condition for the rubbermatch weigh-in and bout? it’s a simple yes or no question”
Certainly for you it’s a simple question because you are asking it. Even more simple for you because you evaded my comment. I said that Morales had the opportunity to turn down a third fight with Pacquiao but he didn’t. He chose to get his a$$ kicked instead. How Morales looked is only an issue in your mind. Morales chose to fight Pac three times and he paid dearly for it. Blame it on anything you want. Pac kicked his butt. Twice.Posted March 25, 2014 4:48 pm
“Hidalg0 – Yeah, the same PED’s Marquez was apparently on when he put Pac to sleep. Y’all Pactards are HUGE hypocrites.”
Titopa, YOU nor anyone else has ever seen me claim that Marquez was on PEDs. Save your “Pactards” insults for a real pactard. If you can find one.Posted March 25, 2014 4:45 pm
“there is only one other reason that a prizefighter like Manny* would turn down a $25-$50 million payday to face his primary P4P rival over MUTUALLY-Applied testing.”
Lets not forget that by Floyd refusing to negotiate better terms with Manny–like a 50-50 split, Floyd also intentionally turned down a huge payday–likely the biggest of his career.Posted March 25, 2014 4:44 pm

“unless you’re referring to head movement directed at Marquez’s fists(?).”
tumbo, if Manny had better head movement in his fourth fight with Marquez, he had best stop practicing head movement. He’s getting worse at it.
Pac was never Tyson with head-movement. Tyson was taught reasons as to why you move your head in certain patterns and was drilled on anticipation. Other fighters want to copy Tyson and the “move your head” command but according to Rooney, they don’t know what they are doing.
If you look at how Tyson did it it is different than some guy just moving his head for the sake of it.
I never got the sense Roach knew how to teach proper head-movement that the likes of Patterson and Tyson knew.Posted March 25, 2014 11:58 am
Styles make fights
Mannys style he is a good puncher he has had power not too sure if he still does. He throws a lot of punches from awkward angles for the most part he loves to brawl. Outwork and beat you up he is not very technical but he knows how to trap you. But he is open to counters and can be easily hit he has a good chin but he has had his clock stopped more than once. Enter Floyd he is a counter puncher who from the first round established his rhythm and picks you apart he is perfectly fine with making you miss and pay because he know you cannot stop it every fight is nothing more than a sparring session with him he is not easily rattled and you cannot rough him up. You have to body shot him and jab hit anything he gives you arms elbows hips ribs because it will wear him down and you will not hit his head. But you will get hit a lot so you have to have excellence footwork and stamina, Trainers tell there fighters to rough him up but it ever works they playing checkers and he plays chess…Posted March 25, 2014 11:53 am
I’m not sure what is so hard to understand that the fight did not happen because of both parties didn’t want to budge from what they felt was right because both are trying to win inside and outside the ring.Posted March 25, 2014 11:52 am
The bottom line is ,that if Pacquiao is not a threat to Mayweather like Te Tumbo says then why doesn’t Mayweather fight him for the biggest prize money ever . Even If Pacquiao wants a 50 /50 split ,, Mayweather will still make more money in that fight then any other fight even with the 50/50 split . If it’s such an easy fight for Mayweather he should jump on it .
Because victory to Mayweather is also in Business. It’s ego. ITs the same reason why Pac declined 40 million. For 40 million, Pac could have taken it, beaten Floyd, taken his legacy, and been in position to say if you want a rematch, bend over.Posted March 25, 2014 11:47 am
Ask Rios.Posted March 25, 2014 11:34 am
Hidalg0 – Don’t forget, Manny said “NO” to anti-doping testing…claiming “The tests the commission administers in enough”, when accused he sued instead of PROVING he was clean…when Marquez was accused he said “I’ll take any test they want, I have nothing to hide”. HUGE difference, one is willing to PROVE, the other was NOT.Posted March 25, 2014 11:18 am
“What PEDs? Oh, the imaginary PEDs!” but what isn’t imaginary is that Pacquiao* refused to defuse and shrug-off initial suspicion about him taking PEDs by frequently rejecting stricter anti-doping procedures. IMO, he’s simply been trying to postpone a lopsided loss to Mayweather but if I’m wrong, there is only one other reason that a prizefighter like Manny* would turn down a $25-$50 million payday to face his primary P4P rival over MUTUALLY-Applied testing.Posted March 25, 2014 11:13 am
TC FANboy, you’re the typical boxing neophyte who ducks the topic to something that might be true to avoid having to admit what is glaringly true otherwise. Pacquiao* has NO Jab. the most fundamental tool in boxing. “Manila Ice” is landed purely by luck and almost unintentionally. Pacquiao* seems genuinely surprised whenever he lands a solid right-hand shot, which he neither sets up or features as part of a balanced offense. the elder “Mosley”? a PED-cheat that Mayweather compelled to test and beat the crap out of for 11 rounds? are you f’n kidding me? also, i DARE You to watch the Pacquiao* v. Barrera rematch, which features a tentative Manny* completely bedeviled by Barrera’s counterpunching stance. it’s one of the most boring rematches in boxing history and rarely if ever cited as a Pacquiao* career highlight. you need to learn something about the sport before embarrassing yourself by questioning the likes of Me. Documented Boxing FactS — not fanboy worship — is my game.Posted March 25, 2014 11:10 am

“Morales outboxed Pacquiao in the first fight, but Pacquiao got progressively better in the next two fights” or Morales was progressively weight-compromised in the next two fights. their rematch simply picked up where Morales left off before complaining about leg-cramps as early as the 4th round(?!). Morales looked like a concentration-camp survivor for the rubbermatch weigh-in and bout and never fought at 130lbs again. Pacquiao* remains the same predictable, single-fisted, one-dimensional puncher that he’s always been. it’s actually taken Manny* 10 years to NOT learn how to jab(?!). any top-notch boxer will dominate Pacquiao* and even average ones like Morales can contain and bust Manny* up for a convincing “W”. including a final-round charge for the KO win.Posted March 25, 2014 9:53 am

It’s like a guy with an automatic riffle who shoots while hiding and not seeing his target. I still think Pacman don’t have to KO Bradley to win.

Manny Pacquiao has dominated boxing for over a decade. Voted Fighter of the Decade by boxing’s top writers was justice for a fighter that took on the best and beat the best. His 8 division world titles will never be seen again, ever. June of 03 defeats Ledwabe by TKO for a title. Nov 03 destroys the great Marco Antonio Barrera. May of 04 drops Marquez in round one and beats him around the ring for 12 rounds, and if not for a judge that admitted he scored a round wrong, Manny on paper would have received the in. Regardless, he won in the public eye. Jan of 06, destroys the great Erik Morales. Mar of 08 destroys Marquez. Dec of 08 destroys Oscar, the Golden Boy. May of 09 destroys Hatton. Nov of 09 Destroys The great Miguel Cotto. Nov of 2010 destroys Margarito. Nov of 2011 destroys Marquez and June of 2012 destroys Bradley as the robbery of the century is born. Nov of 2013, Manny puts on the greatest boxing exhibition ever bar none. April of 2014, Manny Pacquiao devastates Timothy Bradley to regain his stolen championship belt and bring justice to himself. Manny Pacquiao will go down in the history books as the greatest fighting machine ever. No one ha the speed, power, accuracy, agility, ring generalship or stamina that Manny Pacquiao posses, no one, Mayweather was in the decade that Manny Pacquiao as voted the Fighter of the Decade. The writers, fans and fighters all knew that Manny as unbeatable in that decade, and Floyd Mayweather would not have stood a chance, and that’s fact. Manny is a combination of Robinson, SRR Leonard, Duran, Hagler, Monzon,Chavez, Louis, Tyson, Ali and a few other great talents. April 12th will be Manny Pacquiao’s vindication day. Greatness will visit the boxing world again as Las Vegas will be packed. Floyd Mayweather’s home town where he resides will be Manny Pacquiao’s home while he is there as he is with the City of Los Angeles. Theere will never be another fighter that brings so much to the table. He changes every city he goes to. People love Manny Pacquiao, and his fighting ability has no equal. Keep your eyes on the TV on April 12 or you may miss one of the greatest knockouts of all time. Manny Pacquiao will be special on this night. Trust me, when Manny is motivated, focued and phyically and mentally prepared, no one beats him, no one. manny is the best!Posted March 25, 2014 3:03 am

Titopa – Morales outboxed Pacquiao in the first fight, but Pacquiao got progressively better in the next two fights, as Roach began to utilize the right hand more. The second Morales fight was when Pacquiao really began to develop and blossom in his golden period.
Hatton was a mauling brawler, but an effective and quality fighter.
Pacquiao did have improved head movement in the first few rounds of the fourth bout. Because your head movement is better, that does not mean you will not get hit.Posted March 25, 2014 3:00 am

Tumbo .You have to factor in PAC has 63 fight total, floyd has 45 fight total. PAC has 18 fight more than Floyd. Floyd was retired when manny took out the great Mexican fighter bunch. Will Floyd still be undefeated in 18 more fight?
all Pacquiao* had to do was remain undefeated to become unavoidable and begin to make adequate sense to Mayweather. at some point, you have to admit, Mayweather has been every bit as good as billed. Margarito? Pacquiao*? not so good.Posted March 25, 2014 12:27 am
THE FACTS, i also included the stipulation that the duckee also pose a realistic threat to Mayweather. i dinged “pretty boy” good and plenty for not accepting Margarito’s challenge back then. i was also confident that Margarito posed no threat to Mayweather’s “0”. avoided? perhaps, but just one fight away from becoming unavoidable. IF Tony had also defeated Mosley, Mayweather would’ve gleefully confirmed a matchup v. Margarito within the year. at that point, it would’ve made all the sense in the world to “Money”.Posted March 25, 2014 12:24 am

Manny hasn’t stopped anyone since 09, and they were dehydrated Bradley is tough he took hard shots from Ruslan and he kept coming and didn’t fold. So I don’t see Manny stopping him this will be another close one. Bradley has no KO power but he is game as hell. Manny skills have faded alone with some of his confidence from the Marquez loss. This one will go to the cards with them having to fight for a 3rd time. This is another Manny vs. Marquez saga that goes on till this day.

the accusation of “ducking” only applies if the duckee poses a realistic if not certain threat of defeating the presumed ducker. i challenge any of Floyd’s detractors to identify the individual that Floyd avoided to preserve his “0”. Pacquiao* is not an option since it’s glaringly obvious that he is the one who avoided Mayweather among several others. all of whom had a realistic chance of defeating Pacquiao*.Posted March 24, 2014 8:49 pm
Those “greats” in the ’80s didn’t fight everyone.
Leonard and Hearns sure as Hell ducked Mike McCallum and Michael Nunn — especially when they were the top contenders for Leonard’s middleweight title… Leonard allowed his title to be stripped and he went looking for another one … and an easier opponent.

He’s fast, powerful and punches at odd angles and often punches through a fighter’s guard. He also has dazzling footwork. That will give any boxer fits. Granted, his defense is a bit of liability, but I liked the improved head movement in the fourth Marquez bout. Marquez was having a more difficult time finding him due to this, but of course that was overshadowed once Pacquiao went to sleep.
^he has good hand speed and power; that is it.. dazzling footwork? that fool walked into the illest right hand in the last, i dunno……10 years!? he bounces around the ring- that is NOT DAZZLING FOOTWORK. his boxing IQ is close to his actualy IQ and obviously he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. dude is so overrated. his boxing technique is poor. he has tons of energy somehow (ariza secret shakes) and that is really all he ever had.Posted March 24, 2014 6:48 pm

This is why pactards are the worst a holes on the planet, hec dog further proves it Manny is don’t and when he looses again.

Hec dog your post was way too long. Look they both have respect for each other but Bradley is stating what he truly believes. Pacquiao is still a great fighter but he has slipped the last few years . Pacquiao is slowing down just enough where a younger and quick fighter can match him. Bradley is going to school pacquiao and then get robbed by the judges. Look for a pacquiao vs Bradley 3Posted March 24, 2014 5:23 pm

Manny Pacquiao is arguably the greatest prize fighter of all time, and with good cause. Manny Pacquiao’s answers and body language cannot be deciphered by what a person thinks he sees. Everyone has their own perception, and it’s ludicrous to think Manny is even remotely unsure. Trust me, I know the man better than most, and if there is someone qualified to read the man, it’s me. First off, I think it would appropriate to have a qualified translator to get Manny’s point across clearly. He occasionally has difficulty using the correct words to describe what he wants to get across. If he was explaining something in his native language, there would be no miscommunication in any way. Secondly, Timothy Bradley is trying to ruffle his own feathers by talking the talk, and posing like he’s always been confident that he could beat manny Pacquiao. He sure was singing a different song after their first fight. Bradley now beats an aging Marquez, and now he thinks he has the strategy and ability to beat a Manny Pacquiao that he sees as lacking in confidence and has lost his killer instinct. Fighters don’t lose their killer instinct. They lose their will to compete. Manny Pacquiao has lot neither. As a matter of fact, as I closely watch and study Manany Pacquiao, I see a Monster that is about to painfully destroy anyone, not just Timothy Bradley. Manny Pacquiao will begin his second reign of terror as readies himself to beat Bradley, Garcia, Porter, Broner, Canelo and Mikey Garcia. Do not underestimate a fighter of Manny Pacquiao’s ability and intelligence. If Ped Man Marquez wants another fight, please come on and bring that beat up, substance abused, fragile body to the table so that the ring legend, Manny Pacquiao ends your career for good. Floyd obviously wants no part of Manny, and once he sees Manny destroy Timothy Bradley, Mayweather will keep his phone off and doors locked. I took a glimpse of Manny’s sparring earlier, and I will tell you one thing right now. Manny will stop Bradley inside of 4 rounds or no later than 9. Ali, Duran, Robinson, Bruce Lee, Hulk Hogan, Leonard, Chavez, GSP or any other fighter beats manny Pacquiao when he is physically and mentally ready and focused, no one. Forget the cold that he had. Forget his age. Forget who’s in his camp. A few things you don’t forget about Manny Pacquiao is his extraordinary boxing skills. You don’t forget his God given natural power. You don’t forget what he is capable of doing. And you don’t forget that this fighting machine is one of a kind. He will do what everyone thinks he can’t do. Keep your eyes open on April 12 because Manny Pacquiao will defeat Timothy Bradley in a dramatic and stunning fashion. Once the fight is over, everyone will believe and agree that Manny Pacquiao should be considered the greatest fighting machine of all time. Don’t miss this fight. manny is going to do something special. Trust me on this. Manny is the best!Posted March 24, 2014 3:40 pm
Tomato Can Stan – Didn’t Morales outbox him? He sure did. Then went on to fight two more times at a weight he completely outgrew…Didn’t Marquez essentially outbox him? Hatton was and is NOT a boxer…he’s a mauling brawler. He got Barrera, can’t argue that one, even though Barerra was at the tail end of his career in their 2nd fight. Cotto had to make 145 at a point in which his face would not hold up, hit with bricks for 11 rounds and had a BAD cut vs Clottey in which he barely won. De La Hoya? You mean the cadaver? okay. That version of Mosley was awful, you know that, didn’t he just score a damn draw vs Mora? LOL c’mon!Posted March 24, 2014 2:39 pm
Bradley lost the last fight. Bradley will lose this fight. Bradley doesn’t really believe his BS, and even if he did he DOES NOT HAVE PACQUIAO’S SKILLS.Posted March 24, 2014 2:36 pm
hecubus – If it were the Mosley of 2008 or 2009, maybe, but that was the version of Mosley who looked his age vs Sergio Mora..where he scored a draw. Cotto’s face had just been through two wars, hit with bricks for 11 rounds and had a vagina on his face vs Clottey, where he barely squeaked by…then fights Pac at a catchweight? Bad example. Pac NEVER really ‘beat’ Marquez, if he did, they wouldn’t have fought more than twice. I’ll give him Barerra, although old(er)..but Morales outboxed him in their first fight…in their next two fights Morales couldn’t make the weight, and it showed…he went on to fight fairly well at 140-147.Posted March 24, 2014 2:34 pm

Titopa – “Tell me, which other truly skilled boxer has Pacquiao beaten?”
I think Morales, Marquez, Barrera, Cotto, de la Hoya, Mosley and Hatton is a superb resume. And lets not forget Pacquiao dispatched some of these opponents much more quickly, decisively and impressively than Mayweather did, and Pacquiao fought some of them first and Floyd got the left overs.
Also, Mosley and Cotto were knockd down only once before in their careers before Pacquiao got to them.
You speak of Pacquiao “struggling” with Marquez, but Mayweather was bloodied and busted up by Cotto, whereas Pacquiao made short work of him.
Its a matter of styles.Posted March 24, 2014 2:29 pm
pac’s beaten……moseley, cotto, Bradley*, Marquez (TWICE), Morales (TWICE), Barrera (TWICE)….and most of those were destructions, with the exception of marquez……(and i left DLH out because he was a shell in that fight)Posted March 24, 2014 2:22 pm
Where a KO is going to be a great strategy??? … Pac vs JMM IV
When you’ve tried your best to beat your opponent 3 times and always feel you get shafted by the judges… and this time your opponent and his trainer are vowing to knock you out and settle the rivalry in decisive fashion. You know your opponent very well for one thing. You also know…
He’s coming after you. You’re going to get some great looks.Posted March 24, 2014 2:19 pm
Tomato Can Stan – So, tell me….who has Pac struggled with the most in his ENTIRE career? Tell me, which other truly skilled boxer has Pacquiao beaten?Posted March 24, 2014 2:15 pm
Plankman aka Napioa – These Pac fans want to forget how much trouble Pacquiao has with a fighter who can really box…Marquez has proven time and time again that boxing ability can/will ALWAYS trouble Pacquiao. Pacquiao beats a stationary fighter in Rios and suddenly “he’s back”? I ain’t buying it. Just like Canelo beating up on Angulo, what happened when he faced a man (Floyd) who can really box? Let me guess, they forgot? Hmm.Posted March 24, 2014 2:14 pm
Tomato Can Stan
Titopa – “..thus producing one of the most brutal KO’s in history”
If you want to focus on that one emphatic KO, that’s up for debate, but I think in their overall classic rivalry, when you do the math and total it up, Pacquiao had the edge, stats-wise and aggression-wise.
It depends what you value as a judge, counterpunching or effective aggressiveness, hence the controversy over these fights.Posted March 24, 2014 2:13 pm

“The sense of urgency troubled Pacquioa”
How can you say a sense of urgency “troubled” Pacquiao when he was winning up to that point, or it was at least even ? It was still early in the fight.
Also, there was one point in the fight, where Pacquiao was on the verge of stopping Marquez but the bell rang. I don’t recall the round.
I admire Marquez’s toughness, but he was getting beat up, the knock down aside.Posted March 24, 2014 2:10 pm
Tomato Can Stan – My point being that Pacquiao gradually did worse vs Marquez, in the 4th, Marquez did MUCH better…he not only hit Pac with a punch “a blind man would’ve seen coming” but he continuously countered him at will, timing him with pin point accuracy..thus producing one of the most brutal KO’s in history.Posted March 24, 2014 2:09 pm
Tomato Can Stan,
Excuses??? What are you talking about? This is reality. You go for the win not the KO; that’s what they teach you from day one. Win the round you’re in. Focus on scoring and defending. If a KO presents itself fine; take it. But you’re often not fighting a high quality opponent if it does.
It’s easy for your chief second to demand a KO.
If you’re a great puncher like Golovkin or Kovalev you’ll probably approach it a little differently, but if you’re Pacquiao at 147, just ask yourself how many guys you’ve knocked out lately at that weight. How many times Bradley has been stopped? Risks are easy to take. Once a fight is lost you can’t go back and refight it.Posted March 24, 2014 2:09 pm
I’m concerned by the fact Tim as no head movement…..At times it looks stock stillPosted March 24, 2014 2:08 pm
Plankman aka Napioa
Tomato Can Stan- The sense of urgency troubled Pacquioa. A broken nose did not bother Marquez. It was not his first. If what you’re saying is true then the same can be argued about Marquez. Only that it was Marquez who showed us how to shine when the pressure gets turned up. Pacquioa sensed the pressure and instead tried to go for a kill only to be trapped by a superior warrior at the other end. Countered! KO! the end…Posted March 24, 2014 2:04 pm
Poor pacturds, manny rough Marquez at 144 lb he was 147lb in the fight before that.
Tomato Can Stan
Plankman – “1 out of 2 Marquez’s knockdowns almost sent Pacquioa to the grave”.
The second knockdown did, but I disagree with you on the first one. I think it only pissed Manny off more, and many fighters are even more dangerous when knocked down. Pacquiao had a cold, steely look of determination after that first knock down. In fact Nacho Berstain said he thought Marquez was in deep trouble after that.Posted March 24, 2014 1:58 pm
Manny got KTFO by Marquez when was the last time he beat a fighter without them meeting him at some catch weight or them having weight issues? Or what was the last undefeated fighter Manny beat? If they are in is weight class he has a hard time beating them convincingly that’s why he has to fight all these guys over and over and its been like that his entire career. Now he is exposed for the hype job he is who juiced to beat dehydrated fighters dumb enough to come down from 154 to 147. Now his rein is over betwwen Bradley and Marquez 5 Manny get his ass handed to him he was never on Floyds level. Floyd walked all over Marquez Mannys nemesis they same guy that dropped him. Now is ppv sales suck and he is irrelevant because he was never sht without juice in the first place. And if the was clean why wouldn’t he submit to blood testing if Arum his master could manipulate when and how they could test him. I am so glad the public is to smart to be fooled by the tactics of corruption. Manny walked away from Floyd and 40 million in 09, Now Floyd continues to make Money more than anyone in the history of the sport and Manny cant even get 1 million ppvs and is 70 million in back taxes tot he IRS.Posted March 24, 2014 1:51 pm
Plankman aka Napioa
Tomato- He landed more but he DID miss more. He threw like 1000 punches only to land about half of those. Marquez threw less and landed less but he missed less. His percentage of connected punches was MORE than Pacquioa’s. 1 out of 2 Marquez’s knockdowns almost sent Pacquioa to the grave. That’s why his knockdown’s counted more. Marquez may have been knocked down more times but like all warriors he came back and fought a brave fight only to lose the battle at the hands of the judges.Posted March 24, 2014 1:50 pm
Manny Pacquiao, arguably the greatest fighter of all time will have no mercy on Timothy Bradley this time around. Some of you must recall that Manny came back from the loss to Ped Man Marquez, took a year off and put on one of the greatest boxing clinics ever seen. No one had ever thought that Manny Pacquiao could reinvent himself from the greatest offensive fighting machine in boxing history to a graceful, agile, poetic boxer with a defensive mechanism that only technology could create. A master performance that no one expected. The crowd in attendance gasped in awe as they witnessed Manny Pacquiao turn boxing into an art of beauty. This is a man that no one thought could ever come back. Today, he continues adding to his legend at the famous Wild Card Gym. One sparring partner for Manny Pacquiao, Lydel Rhodes said after sparring the legend “I can’t see his punches coming.” This gives you an inside glance as to what Timothy Bradley will be up against. There are current rumors at the Wild Card gym that sparring partners for Manny have given orders to their trainers to actually yell out “Incoming” 5 seconds before Manny throws his punches. Manny Pacquiao is on fire right now, and he means business. I have been following Manny Pacquiao for awhile, and I can tell you with certainty that Timothy Bradley will be stopped before round 4 or no later than round 9. Forget what Manny seems like or what Timothy Bradley says, Manny is correct when he says “My time is not yet over.” Every great fighter has more in the tank than people know. We know of a handful of great fighters that have suffered bad defeats only to come back with devastating wins. This will be the case with Manny Pacquiao. He is a fighter that stands alone and a foot above any fighter that has ever stepped into the boxing ring. Most boxing observers and fans have seen only half of what Manny Pacquiao is capable of. Those that don’t like Manny Pacquiao are coming up with their wishful thinking as to why he won’t be the same. Mayweather and Ped Man Marquez are shaking in their shoes hoping Manny doesn’t win. They fear what monster has been let loose. The heart beat of Boxing is riding on Manny Pacquiao. More fans in the USA are pulling for Manny to win this fight than in the Philippines, and that speaks volumes about Manny Pacquiao’s popularity and the love people have for him. His current training in Los Angeles has set attendance records at Griffith Park from fans wanting to catch a glimpse of this warrior. The world will stop for a brief moment on April 12 because this is an event of epic proportions. Manny’s time is not finished yet, and he’s going to prove it on April 12, trust me on this. Manny is the best!Posted March 24, 2014 1:48 pm
Keep it up Bradley PAC beat down of you will even be sweeter, you said it all you have no excluse this time 100% and got wooped,
anybody else think Bradley was fakeing his ankle sprain? I watch the whole fight last night and no way did I see attention to his ankle at all, he didn’t touch it at all all night.or talked about it. Surely he would have said something about it if it was true,
and he was doing his shuffle many times, that a wasted movement that put pressure on his angle for nothing as that a show thing while there are apart, Bradley you are lieing you ankle was ok…. You were 100% a bit gun shy I would put it and missing a lot.Posted March 24, 2014 1:45 pm

Plankman – “Marquez had the more precise punches”. Because Marquez is a counter puncher and Pacquiao is an offensive fighter. The Las Vegas judges tend to favor effective aggressiveness or counterpunching.
Obviously, Pacquiao did not “miss” too much, because he out-landed Marquez in all four bouts. Look at Marquez’s bloodied, busted face.Posted March 24, 2014 1:39 pm

My question is DID YOU forget about Marquez’s knockdowns? His knock downs counted MORE than Pacquioa’s. Was Marquez ever put down like Paquioa? Out-landed? Marquez had the more precise punches…thats why his counted more and always ended in controversy. Pacquioa would miss. Marquez would counter and were more effective as you can clearly see in the last outcome of their last fight. That’s what a precise and sharp counterpuncher will do to you. Pay for your mistakes and Marquez is older than Pacquioa. Thats saying alot. Pacquioa struggled with an aging fighter. Could not put away a young punching bag Rios.

Tomato Can Stan – Rio? C’mon. He doesn’t have a fraction of the boxing ability Marquez does, I’d also pick Bradley to outbox him, Alvarado too outboxed Rios. People (myself included) question Pac’s desire (fire) cause of how he looked vs guys with real boxing ability. Even though he “beat” Bradley, he didn’t look very good, Provo looked better vs Bradley. Did you forget that Pacquiao was once again being countered at will by Marquez? Did you forget Marquez dropped Pac in the 3rd with a punch “a blind man could’ve seen coming”? You have to remember, the little bit of good Pac did vs Marquez is due to him knowing Marquez, they’ve fought so many times that he should look good every time..no matter what.Posted March 24, 2014 12:06 pm
Bradley is gonna give Pacquiao tons of trouble. You’ll see. Win or lose, Pacquiao is NOT gonna look like he did against Rios, cause unlike Rios, Bradley knows how to use the rings, he doesn’t stand straight up or block with his face…I see Bradley outboxing Pacquiao, with Pacquiao possibly landing the harder more “telling” blows. I won’t be surprised to see Bradley lose a controversial decision…ala Pacquiao vs Marquez II.Posted March 24, 2014 11:58 am

Tomato- Well if your making a case out of past comebacks from rematches, then I think you are missing my point. The point I was making was that he (Pacquioa) is in decline. His recent performances have been less than impressive since getting knocked out. A sign he is almost out the door. Bradley has improved and Pacquioa has declined. Bradley by UD.Posted March 24, 2014 11:42 am
“Try watching Marciano/Walcott II, Louis/Schmeling II, Jones/Tarver II, Ali/Liston II, Robinson/Fullmer II”
Walcott could have gotten up easily, but didn’t. Schmeling was in wretched shape compared to the first Louis-Schmeling fight. Tarver stopped Jones once in 3 fights but gave him a good beating in the first fight. It almost seemed like Tarver was scared of hurting Roy in the 3rd fight. It was a sparring session, with Jones conceding the fight. Ali threw a weak “phantom punch” that didn’t knock Liston out. Robinson won only 1 of 4 fights with Fullmer.
The chances of Pacquiao KOing Bradley are about the same as JMM KOing Pac if they fought again – maybe 10% at best. Better he goes for the points win—that’s about a 75% likelihood. If you flip a coin twice and it comes up heads both times? That about the chance Bradley has of winning this fight.
It’s one Hell of a lot more dicey than Rios. It’s pretty scary for the Pac team.Posted March 24, 2014 11:40 am

Timothy is most likely using that reasoning to psyche PacROID* out…so that PacROID* will come in like he* did against Marquez and get countered the entire fight! A roided man has aggression that can be called upon at ANY time. PacROID* chooses to turn it off at times because he knows he’s picked weaker opposition to take advantage of. He reads the criticisms of his catchweight fiascos, so he doesnt want to look like a complete bully for “da fans an da people” he likes to keep “happy.”
He was an aggressive monster for Marquez until he got clocked, but toned it down out of guilt for picking a lighter individual that lost 2 of his last fights in Rios. The latter appeals to his gullible fans that think he’s so sweet & tenderhearted as he sings & smiles – after they forgot how intensely he* tried to take Marquezs head off – in his* other version of love & tenderness! PacROID* has lost NOTHING in terms of aggression or killer instinct! His* lack of money will allow him to keep it going “if” ever he was to slightly find himself losing it! I assure you he hasnt lost a thing!!Posted March 23, 2014 11:09 pm
Pacquiao v Rios was a comeback fight, he will box Bradley but I think he will try for the KO at some point in the fight.Posted March 23, 2014 11:02 pm
Bradley is employing what he believes is a clever strategy.
He’s trying to bait Pacquiao. He wants Pacquiao to attack and try to K him TFO so he can pick him off coming in. Make Pacquiao do all the work. Basically that was Tim’s strategy for the Marquez fight and it worked very well.
Pacquiao is too clever to fall for baiting tactics — especially since JMM IV woke him up. Bradley is a weak hitter—but not so weak you can afford to be stupid.
Pac’s plan will basically be the same game he used against Rios.. Use angles, use the jab, defend well, counter well, win each round convincingly, and dominate.. Don’t try for the KO … because nothing is dumber than that.
Pac was a big bomber from 112 to 135… but he’s not so much at welterweight … any more than Floyd is. What he CAN do is kick ass and beat the Hell out of you over 12 rounds if he stays disciiplined and fights his fight.Posted March 23, 2014 10:46 pm
WTF! Bradley lose the first fight big time!!!! Manny don’t have to knock this coconut shell head butt Bradley. Pacman just go need to do the same. Speed in and out! Bradley will injure his two feet again trying to duck and dance with Pacmans punches.Posted March 23, 2014 10:42 pm
why they want manny to be aggressor to win a fight – look at mayweather he only dancing around the and people chasing him like butterfly – and he winning the fightPosted March 23, 2014 10:37 pm
Pacquiao doesn’t care about face off, it is nothing, unless you were bought up on soap operas.Posted March 23, 2014 10:36 pm
Bradley, I will have to look at the tape to see if I won, says it all, he knows he lost, fair play, he was not going to admit he lost.Posted March 23, 2014 10:34 pm
Of corse face off has no baring on what will take place in the ring. But Manny was made to look a little foolish on face off.Posted March 23, 2014 10:33 pm
Do you really think Pacquiao is interested in this face off thing, (Americans are, like soap operas)Bradley saying this and that, Pacquiao is not interested in who won face off, you stared me out, he is not interested in silly stuff, what he will be interested in is beating up Bradley in the actual Boxing fight.Posted March 23, 2014 10:29 pm
I thought it was funny when Pacquiao said our term for boxing is running. Then he turned around and said he boxed. err ran against Rios. Pacquiao did well on face off considering English isn’t his first language, but Tim talked him into a couple of corners. Face off was won by Bradley.Posted March 23, 2014 10:16 pm
C’mon Vitali. Grammatical garbage. I read you a lot, and this may be the worst. Sine ESB doesn’t feel the need to have an editor, at least edit your own.Posted March 23, 2014 10:04 pm
What was the last time Manny beat a undefeated fighter? Second if someone wasn’t dehydrated at a catch weight he couldn’t dominate them. The last good credible fighter Manny beat was Cotto in 09. Since then he lost 2 out of his last 3 fights and has had no KOs. How can this guy stop fighters like Oscar, Cotto and Margecheato but cannot stop Bradley, Marquez or Rios? Poor ass clowns, guys who have juiced in the past skills have declined fast as well. Roy Jones, Holyfield, James Toney, Barry bonds the list goes on. Manny climbed 8 divisions and gained speed and power not to mention he could take shots from these bigger guys. Name one other fighter in the history of the sport who has done that? None because its not happing not without PEDs, Now he cannot juice because he is exposed now he looses and losses bad.Posted March 23, 2014 10:02 pm
Manny Pacquiao, arguably the greatest fighter of all time will have no mercy on Timothy Bradley this time around. Some of you must recall that Manny came back from the loss to Ped Man Marquez, took a year off and put on one of the greatest boxing clinics ever seen. No one had ever thought that Manny Pacquiao could reinvent himself from the greatest offensive fighting machine in boxing history to a graceful, agile, poetic boxer with a defensive mechanism that only technology could create. A master performance that no one expected. The crowd in attendance gasped in awe as they witnessed Manny Pacquiao turn boxing into an art of beauty. This is a man that no one thought could ever come back. Today, he continues adding to his legend at the famous Wild Card Gym. One sparring partner for Manny Pacquiao, Lydel Rhodes said after sparring the legend “I can’t see his punches coming.” This gives you an inside glance as to what Timothy Bradley will be up against. There are current rumors at the Wild Card gym that sparring partners for Manny have given orders to their trainers to actually yell out “Incoming” 5 seconds before Manny throws his punches. Manny Pacquiao is on fire right now, and he means business. I have been following Manny Pacquiao for awhile, and I can tell you with certainty that Timothy Bradley will be stopped before round 4 or no later than round 9. Forget what Manny seems like or what Timothy Bradley says, Manny is correct when he says “My time is not yet over.” Every great fighter has more in the tank than people know. We know of a handful of great fighters that have suffered bad defeats only to come back with devastating wins. This will be the case with Manny Pacquiao. He is a fighter that stands alone and a foot above any fighter that has ever stepped into the boxing ring. Most boxing observers and fans have seen only half of what Manny Pacquiao is capable of. Those that don’t like Manny Pacquiao are coming up with their wishful thinking as to why he won’t be the same. Mayweather and Ped Man Marquez are shaking in their shoes hoping Manny doesn’t win. They fear what monster has been let loose. The heart beat of Boxing is riding on Manny Pacquiao. More fans in the USA are pulling for Manny to win this fight than in the Philippines, and that speaks volumes about Manny Pacquiao’s popularity and the love people have for him. His current training in Los Angeles has set attendance records at Griffith Park from fans wanting to catch a glimpse of this warrior. The world will stop for a brief moment on April 12 because this is an event of epic proportions. Manny’s time is not finished yet, and he’s going to prove it on April 12, trust me on this. Manny is the best!Posted March 23, 2014 9:58 pm
Pacman just needs 2 stop acting like a chump but were see com fght nite bradley dis da hell out of my boy on face off i felt bad 4 pacman hopefully dat will lite his fire , but bradley is ritePosted March 23, 2014 9:34 pm
Manny didn’t sound to confident in his ability in this face off. He lost his mojo when he got dropped by Marquez. Two things happened he could no longer sham fighters into meeting him at a dehydrated catch weight and he could no longer get away with juicing due to the allegations by Floyd so yes his fate is sealed now even if he looses and looses badly he still has to fight on because he is in a lot of debt. Mannys story like so many other great fighters will end sad…Posted March 23, 2014 9:03 pm
Pacquiao is a great fighter and an ATG. He will prove it one more time although he doesn’t need to. Bradley is not in his class. With regards to Marquez, styles make fights. That’s all I have to say. Floyd fans just envy Pac because he excites masses where Floyd bores them. People just tune in to see Floyd lose because he is an arrogant prick. That’s all.Posted March 23, 2014 8:50 pm
Bradley is going to get hurt in this one. Too tough for his own good.Posted March 23, 2014 8:48 pm
I commend any man that steps in the ring. But I feel Bradley is garbage. He swings with his eyes closed, he’s wild, and he fights off his dads juice. Which is cool. To me Bradley was blessed with the victories over Ruslan and PAC. PAC was the champ, and to me you have to really beat the heck out of a champ to take his title. For PAC to be humble during the face off, and for Bradley to constantly say my time is still here and you don’t have that fire anymore, PAC has got do be thinking, “l can not possibly let this guy beat me again.” “I got to get the belt back before some one else get it.” Bradley is to tense. I’m not a PAC fan, but Bradley is shi_ _y.Posted March 23, 2014 8:45 pm
Fire or no fire, if Manny out punches Bradley as much as he did in the first fight, I doubt that Bradley will be gifted a decision this fight as well. Total punches landed: P= 253 and B= 159. Jabs landed: P= 63 and B= 51. Power punches landed: P= 190 and B= 108. Plus, P had a higher percentage of his punches land than did B.Posted March 23, 2014 8:40 pm
Marquez vs. Pacquiao was #1 for Pacquiao; #2 was a draw; #3 for Marquez. Before the #4 each had one victory. Bradley vs. Pacquiao, #1 for Pacquiao; #2 who knows? Each boxer should get credit for their victories and not use blanket statements to mean that they never won anything. If Bradley wins rematch, it will never mean that he won the first one. Each fight should be analyzed separately and not treated equally. They are not.Posted March 23, 2014 8:32 pm
MaybePosted March 23, 2014 8:16 pm
I hope Pacquiao beats Bradley….again. IMO, Pacman was sold out by his own promoter, Bob Arum. He paid the judges to pick Bradley. After all no one had more to gain than Top Rank. They needed a legitimate non-Mayweather opponent for Pacquiao. They had already invested in Bradley and needed him to win (A) to create a demand for a rematch and (B) to create a viable opponent for Marquez. Obviously I can’t prove that, but it makes sense.Posted March 23, 2014 8:09 pm
The Mad Scientist
Good post odd ball..I just wanna add what look like an amazing Pacman run between the 2nd and 3rd JMM fights was recuced and exposed by none other than JMM..poor pactards, they thought they would ride off into the sunset with their hero thinking there was no longer a mexican fighter in the sport who can lay gloves much less ktfquiao out of their idol..who is crying and whining now..Lol!Posted March 23, 2014 8:06 pm
Time will chip away at any fighter’s skills. While the desire may still be there, the ability may not be. Bradley is no joke. He may not be a knock-out puncher, but he has stamina. He fights every round like it’s the first round. If Pacquaio does win, I prefer not to see him face Marquez again and really don’t want to hear about him and Mayweather either. Let’s all move on.Posted March 23, 2014 8:00 pm
It wasn’t fire that Pac lost. it was self-confidence. Pac never had any defense to speak of. His defense is offense with reckless abandon. It worked for him when we was at lighter weight classes because he was more muscular and stronger than his oppositions. When he went up in weight he was matched with popular fighters on the twilight of their careers. And those fights were held with a huge advantage for Pac — the catchweight clauses. But you can only milk that cow so much. Pac is done. Floyd did him in without fighting him. When Floyd insinuated that Pac maybe juicing, Pac`s career went down on a spiral. He was spooked by the possibility that he would get caught sith PED in his veins if he didnt stop. And then Marquez nailed the last nail in Pac`s coffin. Pac is done. Exposed as the hype that he has always been.Posted March 23, 2014 7:51 pm
