Bradley Will Come in Light For Pacquiao, as Low as 144

By Osman Rodriguez

WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12KOs) will not repeat his past mistakes as he approaches the upcoming fight with WBO welterweight king Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs) on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Bradley had previously fought at welterweight in 2010, when he dominated Carlos Abregu over twelve. But, Bradley weighed in at the full welterweight of limit 147 and looked sluggish in the ring.

Against a fast fighter like Pacquiao, Bradley wants to retain as much speed as possible, which is why he plans to come in at 145, 144. Bradley is already at the welterweight limit, leaving the gym earlier today at 147. Pacquiao usually weighs in light. Since becoming a welterweight in 2008, Pacquiao has weighed between 142 to 145.

"This is the fight that I've been waiting. The chance of my life. I'm ready for this moment. I'm exciting. I'm in the best shape of my life. I've probably sparred over 160 rounds. I've been training for three months now. I'm on weight. I left the gym at 147-pounds today. I'll probably be coming a little light on the day of the weigh-in, 145 or 144. I'm just eating a little bit more. I feel great, I feel comfortable and I'm ready to deliver," Bradley said.

They are going to be identical in size I think. Both 5/5-5/6 both around 143 pounds and both ripped.
