The BUZZ continues after Manny Pacquiao’s clear victory over a tough, hungry and more experienced Timothy Bradley. There are still those that still questioned the greatest fighter of this era and possibly the greatest fighter of all time. People need to realize that Manny Pacquiao has not taken an easy fight in the last 11 years. He has been in the most exciting fights of all time. This is a warrior with the physique of a natural light weight that has had to be forced to eat to make the weight. This is a small man in stature that challenged himself to take on the best and he beat them all. He could have easily stayed at 130 and never lost a fight, but he chose to be great and took risks and challenges through 8 weight classes. Unbelievable!!!!! Manny Pacquiao won last Saturday’s Mega Fight against Timothy Bradley, and he may have not looked like the Manny of old, but he still dominated. Yes he’s 35 years old, and the years of hard work and preparation may have worn on him a bit, but don’t think for one second he can’t beat Floyd Mayweather because he can. All great fighters like Manny Pacquiao still have it in them to put on a great performance. Remember, Bradley was familiar with Manny Pacquiao’s style because he went 12 rounds with him before so he has some familiarity with Manny’s unique style. The same goes for Marquez. They spent time in their with the legend. Floyd Mayweather has none. Manny Pacquiao would have Floyd Mayweather running, stumbling and holding on for dear life. Great fighters can do special things when put to the test. Manny is more than just a great fighter. He seems like he’s off balance at times, but he can hit you from anywhere. He looks small, but can hurt you at any time in a fight. He has great movement that can befuddle you at any time. Manny has the ability to change a fight at any time. He doesn’t have to destroy you to win. He can box, move or simply destroy you in a fight. Manny went from fighting a former champion in Rios, and boxing magnificently to fighting a P4P fighter that was unbeaten, and was out fought and out boxed throughout the fight. As I have always stated, Manny Pacquiao beats anyone on a one fight basis. His style is to complex to figure out, and Floyd Mayweather wants no part of Manny for this reason. Floyd Mayweather knows that he can’t compete with a great fighter like Manny Pacquiao. He won’t risk it or take a chance on losing, which he would. Boxing fans, Manny Pacquiao is the most celebrated and influential prize fighter that has ever lived. We don’t have to see PPV numbers to see the impact he has on peoples lives all over the world. Millions upon millions of Manny Pacquiao fans will never get to see him fight live or on TV because they can’t afford it or don’t have access to getting to venue where the fight is being shown. Manny Pacquiao crosses all boundaries when it comes to popularity. No one will account for those fans living in impoverished neighborhoods around the world. Manny is their only hope. He fights for justice. Manny Pacquiao cannot be denied his greatness by anyone. His character as a man and as a fighter is unblemished. This is a man of God that was put in this position for a reason, and he’s helping those in need. I think it’s time to stand up and salute the great Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao. Excuse me for a brief moment as I stand and salute as many of you will also………………..Trust me on this, Manny is the best!Posted April 15, 2014 12:34 am

LOL! You’re a joke SRedmond! What, you think you can disguise your hatred for Manny Pacquiao by dressing it up in a six-word compliment? Get real. The only person that can’t adjust well is YOU! You just can’t handle that Manny has come back from a devastating KO and not only remains relevant, but at the top of the elite welterweight heap!Posted April 14, 2014 6:02 pm
Manny Pacquiao is Boxing’s most important and influential prize fighter today. There is no comparison. Manny routinely fights the best of his era, and put son a show. The fight everyone has been wanting to see for 6 years will never happen. The drug testing issues have been resolved a long time ago. The truth is that Floyd Mayweather truly FEARS Manny Pacquiao. Sparring partners that have been in there with both all say the same thing. Manny is something special. You can’t see his punches, his movement and angles he throws punches at are incredible. And his power is destructive. Floyd’s family (dad, uncles) have been outspoken for years regarding Floyd’s safty if he were to fight Manny Pacquiao. It’s out in the open now. Floyd Mayweather has ruined his already tarnished image forever. Never has a boxing champion been questioned by so many of his own peers. Manny Pacquiao continues to earn more credibility and admiration by taking on the best in boxing. He has nothing to prove. Manny Pacquiao proved to the world that he fights for the fans. He gives 100% each and every time, and he’s not afraid to take chances. The 15,000 plus fans at the MGM Grand watched a living legend put on a show that no one will ever forget. Manny Pacquiao will never be forgotten. He has never had an easy fight. The best ever. Trust me on this.Posted April 14, 2014 4:37 pm

What more is left to say about the legendary Manny Pacquiao. Last night’s fight against Timothy Bradley showed Manny’s ability not to be reckless, but patient and calculating. Manny’s timing seemed to be a little off, but he went for it on several occasions. At one point throwing and landing 10 or more punches. The speed was there as were Manny’s tremendous legs. He often moved and had Timothy swinging at air. There were many fantastic toe to toe exchanges, and Bradley connected solidly early in the fight even staggering Manny, but Manny would not let this fight get away from him. This was his moment to get redemption for the tragic unfair loss that he had unjustly received by a bunch of inept boxing judges. This was Manny’s opportunity to show the doubters in the boxing world that his time was not yet over as he had stated. There were times when Manny seemed a bit off with his punches. His timing and accuracy were also a little off, but he kept fighting and landing many clean and effective punches on a more difficult Timothy Bradley. Bradley was more confident, used excellent defense, and tried pushing the pace early as he threw many hard shots to Manny’s head and body. Both warriors let their best punches go. Manny Pacquiao at age 35 put it all together in the final rounds and brought the fans to their feet. Was this the best Manny Pacquiao we’ve seen, probably not. Was he over trained or just simply showing signs of father time catching up. Regardless, now is the time to give Manny Pacquiao his just due. This warrior has given boxing fans some of the greatest fights in boxing history. At times it was difficult to see who was fighting harder, Manny Pacquiao or his mother Dionesia. This lady was picking up the pace as each round ended. She used every ounce of energy as she tried willing her son to victory. This was a very touching moment as we saw mother and son both trying to bring home a victory. On the other side was Timothy Bradley. A courageous fighter with a desire to win that would not quit until it was over. Timothy is a classy young man that also deserves a lot of credit. He redeemed himself by sharing his honest thoughts on the winner. He gave all that he had, and admitted it wasn’t good enough on this night. He gained a lot of fans. Where does Manny go from here? I’m not sure. Marquez? Provodnikov? Garcia? Porter? Who knows. What we do know is that Floyd Mayweather will not be next. He will forever be remembered as the fighter that robbed fight fans of a Mega Fight. Only he knows the real answers. Manny Pacquiao has fought the best of his time and beaten them all. It’s time for all fans to recognize this fierce warrior. He’s gone through tough times inside and outside the boxing ring, and he’s always come out on top. Manny Pacquiao accomplished his mission on April 12th. He now has to decide what he does from here. Both Jinkee and Manny’s high spirited want him to retire. I hope he makes the right choice himself and his family. Manny will one day be missed by everyone, trust me on this. Manny is the best!Posted April 14, 2014 1:22 am
Another sad day for Pactards
Of course Pactrannie will fight a 42 year old Marquez for the 5th time.manny only fight fighters coming off loses to Mayweather. or weight drained fighters who have not fought at welterweight in10 years.Posted April 13, 2014 11:21 pm
Bradley lacks two elements from making him great one is he abandons his game plan to outbox fighters. In this fight he was beating Manny up to the fifth round. Then he let Manny dictate he gets caught and starts trading punches like typical Latino fighters. Bradley did the same thing with Ruslan and almost got KTFO. He lacks composure and ring IQ. Not to mention it looked like he ran out of gas after about the six round that’s when Manny took over. A better trained well experienced fighter would destroy Manny. Hell Bradley had his shook a few times and rung his bell he just punched himself into fatigue by going for the KO he fought a dumb fight. Bradley needs a better trainer..Posted April 13, 2014 11:09 pm
… “Tim knew that he was losing the fight but could do nothing about it; hence, he took his chances throwing haymakers.”
Nope. The fight was even after 4. He was throwing big haymakers in that round. It was his game plan … Dumb.Posted April 13, 2014 9:33 pm
While I like the fact you are open about your scoring and I would agree with the 1st, 2nd, 7th and 11th rounds to Bradley but Pac was pretty clear on the rest. I scored it 116-114 for Pac.Posted April 13, 2014 9:29 pm
“This fight could have been happened if it wasnt for Arum”
LMAO! @ poor pacturds. You are such a sore loser! LMAO!Posted April 13, 2014 9:20 pm
This fight could have been happened if it wasnt for Arum. Right now he is trying to work leverage again because he has none. Manny beating Bradley proves what? Tim was undefeated because he fought a bunch of nobodies. Manny because of Arum walked away from the fight in 09 Floyd called Manny personally and offered him 40 million and he walked away because of the drug testing. Floyd is not the one making excuses. He makes 150 million a year Manny on the other hand is broke and stuck to fighting a bunch of Arums guys who are no big draws. Hell the Bradley II fight was a flop. Now they will have Marquez 5 another flop, Hell boycott all you want Floyd vs. Maidana is already a sell out enough said who needs who? No surprise he beat a one demtional fighter who cant punch no surprise his Jew Master would try to talk sht to hype his boy up. Floyd dont need Manny he can fight Maidana, Kahn and Danny Garcia without bowing to Arum. Manny is just caught in the middle he needs to ditch top rape. There is too much bad blood between Arum and Floyd. Mayweather made 300 million + after leaving top rank. Manny needs to do the same…Posted April 13, 2014 8:47 pm
I scored 117-111 for Manny. Tim knew that he was losing the fight but could do nothing about it; hence, he took his chances throwing haymakers.Posted April 13, 2014 8:13 pm

Tim was handlin PAC till he abandoned his gameplan ard the 5-6 rd started clownin and got caught flush while in the corner tryna be mayweather after all tht he wasn’t the same fighting a dumb fight all off balance lettin PAC flurry on him with no answer but haymakers every now and thenPosted April 13, 2014 7:27 pm
I lost respect for Bradley because he fought a dumb fight.. Tim is not a puncher.. His chances of knocking Pacquiao out were practically non-existent. Going toe-to-toe doesn’t work for Tim. After catching Pac with the big right hand in the 4th, he barely won another round. He went right hand crazy.
Bradley boxed so beautifully, and was so controlled and in charge when he fought Marquez. He had energy to spare. That was his best strategic fight. It’s so strange that for the most important fight of his life, Tim reverts to the dummy who fought Provodnikov.
I couldn’t believe it when Tim started throwing massive right handers at Pacquiao—swinging for the parking lot.. Everybody was cheering because Tim caught Pac with a big right, won the 4th round, and the fight was dead even… But I said, “You know what? Tim’s going to lose this fight big time. He’s fighting stupid.”Posted April 13, 2014 7:21 pm

IMO Lederman’s scorecard for this fight was spot on.
I never believed MP could knockout TB. Tim is fast and too elusive to hit when he chooses to (With Prov he chose to slug it out and got hit with bombs).
Some say MP has slowed down. I don’t buy that for the simple reason that TB is a very fast and slick fighter.
MP is still a top P4P and the only fight that needs to happen has to happen.

Bradley is in his prime and young And had this hige ego PAC did what he he had to do, that out punch him.
Floyd would never get a UD over Bradley, PAC, khan, porter, it be a darnm close fight a split decession fight and no ko.
Your only good as the opponate you fight. Bradley is prime meat and could posablly out work Floyd
@Suresh I had it 116-113 to Manny, 7 rounds to 4 with 1 even. I had it even after four rounds. Manny swept nearly all the middle rounds. I gave rounds 2,4, 5, 6, 7, 9 and 10 to Manny, rounds 1, 3, 8 and 12 to Tim with round 11 even. Manny was content to coast the last round. It wasn’t a blowout, but Manny clearly won.Posted April 13, 2014 2:10 pm

Manny Pacquiao once again puts on one of the most brilliant boxing displays in the history of boxing. No he didn’t get the stoppage as I thought he would, but it was incredible to see him live. The MGM Grand was the most exciting venue I have ever seen. Cheers of “Manny “Manny” “Manny” was electrifying. I am nearly deaf due to the volume of fans cheering, yelling and screaming at every single punch Manny Pacquiao landed. This was a tough fight that had its ebbs and flows, and Bradley started off well, but Manny as great fighters do began to change things up and masterfully pick Bradley apart. Manny Pacquiao seemed to me a little over trained and his timing was off a bit, but he fought a great fight as usual and took back the the welterweight title and the P4P Boxing King title tonight. He will be even better in his next fight. I attended an after party for an hour and had to go get some sleep due to the high emotions, excitement and the joy of seeing the living legend display his boxing skills that will never come this way again once he’s gone. The speed, movement, fighting heart, mastery of the ring had me and the entire MGM crowd in awe. A fighter shouldn’t be able to do the things Manny Pacquiao does inside a ring. He’s a chess master, a Gretzky, a Willie Mays. Manny Pacquiao solidified himself as the greatest fighter of all time and the greatest athlete of all time. I wanted to chisel out a piece of the MGM Grand to commemorate this artist. I ran into Roy Jones Jr, Terrence Crawford, Chavez and many more athletes like Charles Barkley. Manny Pacquiao brought home the title and gave everyone in the world a reason to smile and celebrate. What a victory, what a victory, what a victory. Manny Pacquiao gave me a Birthday present that I will never forget. I was in the presence of greatness. You will never see another 8 division boxing champion again. Manny’s mother was a blessing to see. She loves her son to no ends and watched and prayed for her loving son. This brought tears to my eyes. And then to see her hug Timothy Bradley like she did is as touching as you will ever see. Jinkee must be smiling with true joy to to her wonderful husband win back and bring home to his wife, family and his people another championship. Boxing is Manny Pacquiao. The world will never be the same once the PEOPLE’S Champion leaves this wonderful sport. This is the sport that the poor can relate to the best. Struggles, mental toughness, hope for the future, survival, instinct, going another step when you don’t think you can, fighting until the end. This is boxing, and that’s why so many people love Manny Pacquiao. What we witnessed today is the most loved, treasured and admired athlete of all times come back after all the tough times he’s endured in the last few years. He could have retired for good, but he didn’t. He could have lost faith, but he didn’t. He could have blamed everyone for his tough times, but he didn’t. What he did was trust God and not let go of his faith. The road tonight was not an easy one to take. There was pain, uncertainty and some rough goings, but Manny kept his faith and fought his way to a victory for those people that need it most in life. Manny carried all of us on his shoulders tonight, and he did not let us down. People, it’s time you give Manny Pacquiao his credit even if you don’t like him. He’s a wonderful person, true champion and a man that loves God. Trust me on this. Manny is the best!Posted April 13, 2014 11:40 am
Just The Facts
It is quite obvious that Boxy and Bradley are related, they both make boasts they can’t back up, the fact is Manny won both fights and would undoubtedly win a third bout were they to meet. More respect to Tim tho as he is man enough to admit defeat, Boxy is just a pathetic miss by his daddy at making a man out of liquid mass, he’d of been better served by just getting a BJ on that tragic day. Daddy’s disappointment in this whelp of a sissy must be unbearable.Posted April 13, 2014 11:12 am
Good win for PacMan. Now he has an offering in the match to Floid. He has a belt to put up. Pac landed the heavier shots to Timmy and out worked Timmy. Looked like the Pac of old to me. He is mucho trouble for Floid if they ever fight. Floid will avoid this man for ever. Mark my words, Floid will avoid Manny!!
Pac clearly won this fight but I thought it was still close. Good score was the 116 to 114. That bogus 118 to 110 was terrible. Arum is a senile old foolPosted April 13, 2014 11:00 am

I had it 118/112 for Pacquiao. 8 rounds to 2, with 2 even. Bradley fought bravely and is an excellent fighter. I can understand his tactics too. He thought Pac’s punch resistance was gone and went for the KO. But even if u gave the close rounds to Bradley therz still absolutely no way Tim won this fight. Or their first fight. ..Posted April 13, 2014 8:52 am
Seems like Arum and Pac made it very clear. If the PBF fight is gonna happen, it depends on PBF. Hopefully people will now stop talking nonsense that it’s Pac and Arum stopping the fight from happening. Please stop that nonsense.Posted April 13, 2014 8:51 am
I scored this fight 114-114.
I gave Bradley rounds 1,2,4,5,8 and 11.
I gave pacquiao rounds 3,6,7,9,10 and 12.
This fight was a lot closer than the first but pacquiao has lost the killer instinct that he had from 2008-2010.
Pacquiao had opportunities to stop and take real charge, especially in rounds 8 and 11 but pacquiao didn’t take his opportunity.
I was very surprised at how easy Bradley hurt and caught pacquiao with some heavy shots in the first half of the fight.
This version of pacquiao has no chance against mayweather.
I want pacquiao to smash Marquez next before attacking mayweather. I think that Marquez 4 fight has some kind of psychological effect on him and he must get a clear revenge for him to make the mayweather fight mouthwatering.Posted April 13, 2014 8:43 am
Now that pac fought Rios and now Bradley I can say that pac proved that his slips and slides and feint s are a part of his new game.
To me this shows pacs brilliance and adaptability to change his game, the power punching pac is gone, pac knows he can get ktfo aswell so he completely makes big changes this late in the game to stay successful and at a high level.
Thats what I noticed.
Bradley ain’t got nothing to be ashamed of either. Good fightPosted April 13, 2014 8:38 am
Good day. I don’t know in all honesty what fight this writer has claimed to have witnessed but it certainly was not the match I and others saw. Hr all but virtually says Manny won here by default. As if Pacquiaos strikes, footwork and understated boxing ability had nothing to do with his turning the tide very emphatically in his favor. Tim fought well at first but he was matched by Pacquiao tip for tap and the difference in strategy and desire was evident. Tim did not deserve the win the first go round and saying that he did was just not being honest. Here he accepts defeat but with an asterisk so to speak by claiming a calf injury. The better fighter won period. I haven’t commented on this site in sometime for a reason. There is definitely a very transparent bias against Pacquiao by a slew of writers on this once quality site. Mr. Joseph Herron is an exception in terms of quality and objective writing, favoring NO ONE as it should be. I will not be contributing once more anytime soon. Again congrats Manny Pacquiao, you are a Champion inside and outside the ring. CheersPosted April 13, 2014 8:37 am
Exiled Yank … I agree. I mean simply as a finale to his career. Cotto and Sergio are both really only light middleweights and are past their primes too. PAC has beaten Cotto before and Sergio is ripe for the taking. It wud b a massive fight and merely a one off with no defenses of the title for PAC. Yet it is a very winnable fight and it wud make him a NINE division champ. Cotto next, then Marquez, then retire.Posted April 13, 2014 8:13 am

What Bradley should have done was man up to having actually lost the first fight and admitting it was a robbery. Man up BradleyPosted April 13, 2014 7:59 am
te tumbo. That’s ok mate. I knew u were a fan of Pacquiao really :) surely anyone who considers themselves a boxing fan is? … PAC looked old last night but boxed beautifully regardless. I wud give him a great chance against the Martinez/Cotto winner … For the linear middleweight title!!!!! A NINE division champ!!!!!!Posted April 13, 2014 7:58 am
Congrats to Pac for avenging a controversial loss putting an end to any speculation about the first fight. I sincerely hope Bradley handles this loss in a healthier manner than the win. Evidently he was so overwhelmed by the media and death threats that the considered suicide. It’s not worth that – it’s not worth taking your own life. I hope he keeps this in perspective.Posted April 13, 2014 7:57 am
Ahhhh, Tumbo has a girlfriend!Posted April 13, 2014 7:55 am
That’s cool puntanganami, back at yaPosted April 13, 2014 7:54 am
I’m such a bone head, Yes, Pac won and I was wrong. Its just the jealousy that I have make me say dumb, wrong things against a guy, well, that’s once again a champion. I apologize. I am such a pungana nami dummy…. Miss ya TetumboPosted April 13, 2014 7:52 am
Pac won but didn’t look like his old self.Posted April 13, 2014 7:51 am
Fight fans, I got it way wrong. I’m sorry. Manny Pacquiao TRULY is FIGHTER OF THE DECADE, he’s greater than JMM and he proved it tonight by beating Bradley who beat JMM. I am humbled and Many Apologies!Posted April 13, 2014 7:49 am

Congratulations to Manny “Pac-man” Pacquiao for your victory over Timothy Bradley and regaining your world welterweight title. I knew you still had it in you.Posted April 13, 2014 7:46 am
Pac surprised me, I am now a Pac Fan, heheeehePosted April 13, 2014 7:46 am
Bradley as it turns out has Hot Dog in him he just can’ t help it. He thought he could sneak in a win by Show Boating.Posted April 13, 2014 7:37 am
Actually, Manny shud hav two more fights. One, outpointing Marquez to avenge the KO. And a rematch with Cotto after he beats Sergio.. For the linear middleweight title! Making Pacman a NINE division champ!!!! Ending on that note wud eclipse Floyd’s career.Posted April 13, 2014 7:36 am
Back at ya babe, we can’t be stoppedPosted April 13, 2014 7:31 am
Gotta go, I have a butt secession with my puntang a nimine best friend Tetumbo. We’re so right for each otherPosted April 13, 2014 7:25 am
Bradley was not mentally prepared for the fight. But it was really surprising how slow Pac was.Posted April 13, 2014 7:24 am
JMM will b gutted! Manny just schooled the guy that clearly out pointed him.Posted April 13, 2014 7:13 am
Pacquiao did very well to beat a quality boxer. I thought Manny controlled the fight but Bradley was always dangerous. I think some people here expect him to KO everyone.Posted April 13, 2014 7:12 am
Thankfully Bradley suffered an injury on his calf. Pacquiao looked like he was going to get knocked out again. After Bradley’s injury, Pacquiao still don’t know what to do and can’t even cut the ring off when Bradley was backing up with one leg. Pac won but showed he is right to use a Katy Perry song as an entrance song as Pac is reduced to being a girl inside the ring. tsk tsk tsk, Marquez really made a puzscy out of Pacquiao.Posted April 13, 2014 7:08 am
This is a lousy article… Not st all accurate and clearly has biases… delete this.Posted April 13, 2014 7:06 am
Floyd will be pleased at how Manny is deteriorating. I won’t be surprised if Mayweather suddenly gets brave and makes the fight with Pacman happen now. This will just prove that Floyd ducked a prime Pacquiao.Posted April 13, 2014 7:05 am
lets see how Marquez looks against Alvarado first.Posted April 13, 2014 7:04 am
That’s why its better to stay silent, avoid trash talk and make predictions of knocking and retiring your opponent, because it will hurt u most when you’ll lost the fight.
Manny shud beat JMM on points again and then retire. That wud be the best possible finish to his career now IMO – having avenged his two mist recent losses. Otherwise, he’s declining fast, and will end up getting beaten by a much lesser fighter very soon.Posted April 13, 2014 6:58 am
what , you mean Manny’s old sparing partner?Posted April 13, 2014 6:53 am
the king is back on his thrown for a while.Posted April 13, 2014 6:51 am
PUTANG INA MO PACQUIAO, MUKHANG TINUBUAN KA NG PEKPEK!!!!!!
Provodnikov was better in his loss against Bradley than Pacquiao winning against Bradley. Provodnikov showed he has balls while Pacquiao showed his balls turned into clitoris.Posted April 13, 2014 6:46 am
AgreedPosted April 13, 2014 6:14 am
Well done pac B+ Performance, and can still get better.Posted April 13, 2014 6:12 am
Dp01 you get the prize for most ridiculous comment ever on this board. Manny is a great fighter, but hell no is he more technically gifted than the likes of a Mayweather. He was gobbling up straight rights for the first 4 rounds before Bradley tired and started winging for the hills.
Pacquiao is simply the most technically gifted pro of any era . Not one can match his technical ability , speed nor heart . This is a guy who is 35 , had 60 odd pro bouts . The Ali myth holds even more water when u see this remarkable human being .
There is only one fight left for him . He would find his range and stop him within 9 .
The perfect pro , a story of true heart and success .
Manny pacquiao . I salute you . Respeto , magpakailanman xPosted April 13, 2014 5:49 am
both these guys looked very average tonight.Posted April 13, 2014 5:37 am
The writer of this article flopped
Bradley gave it everything it just wasn’t enough
Now the author has flopped infront of his long suffering partner again
Bradley plagued by injuries in two of his fights. Bad luck. Stoppin super-tim from comin at ya. Couldn’t be helped. Just a coincidence that both of those fights against pacquiao tho.Posted April 13, 2014 5:23 am
The fight was pretty even until Pacquiao’s Mom pulled out the voodoo doll and hex Bradley. That’s when Bradley started to go down hill in the rounds.Posted April 13, 2014 5:20 am
I dont think Bradley flopped, I believe him about the calf and its too bad because it was a really good fight until that point. I was surprised the announcers never mentioned it because you could hear him in the corner say he was hurt and they asked him if he wanted to go home. Anyways I picked pac to knock Bradley out and I give Bradley a lot of credit for surviving.Posted April 13, 2014 5:09 am
Great win, Tim Bradley was top 3 p4p deservedly so going into this fight and Manny beat him convincingly. Huge respect to both fighters who fight the best.Posted April 13, 2014 5:00 am
Bradley fought like he knew he lost the first fight and the only way he was going to win this time was to land a lucky shot on Pacquiao and hope he knocks him out. But he was gassed by the late middle rounds. I thought I heard him say in the corner that he felt heavy or something like that.Posted April 13, 2014 4:30 am
What a terrible review, who wrote this??? Writes that bradley wins nearley every round and slack rounds also, then says pacman dominated, please write about the rounds pacman won because you did not seem to mention them much.Posted April 13, 2014 4:26 am
Pacquiao WON just as I predicted!!!!!…and I am STILL the GREATEST Fight Prophet ever born! !!!!!Posted April 13, 2014 4:10 am
