Bradley Hints That He Will Target Pacquiao's Right Shoulder

By Radio Rahim

Timothy Bradley has given a hint that he intends to target the recently injured right shoulder of Manny Pacquiao when the two fighters collide for a third time on April 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Bradley (33-1-1, 13KOs) won a controversial twelve round split decision when they faced each other in 2012. Pacquiao evened up the score by winning a dominating twelve round decision in their 2014 rematch.

Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38KOs) is returning from a twelve round decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. last May. He aggravated a pre-existing right shoulder injury during the fourth round of the fight. A few days later, Pacquiao had surgery on the shoulder and spent the remainder of the year in recovery.

There are some concerns from Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, and his promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank, that the Filipino star did not take his rehab very seriously.

With that said, BoxingScene.com asked Bradley if he was planning to target the shoulder.

If that's what it takes to win, Bradley is willing to go that route.

"I think the answer would be - what would you do? C'mon lets think here. You are a smart guy. What would you do? Would you target that shoulder? What would you do? I will do whatever it takes to win," Bradley told BoxingScene.com.

Bradley is returning from a November knockout win over Brandon Rios. Earlier in the year he won a twelve round decision over previously unbeaten Jessie Vargas.

In both of the earlier meetings with Pacquiao, Bradley had trainer Joel Diaz in his corner. Those two parted ways last September and this time around Bradley will be trained by Teddy Atlas.

Well hopefully Pac will have a bottle of seawater on hand.

Come on! Manny's midsection area and huge head are way bigger than his tiny right shoulder... Bradley couldn't even hit him in those areas in both fights, except an apparently lucky shot that stunned Manny in the 2nd meeting, I…

[QUOTE=gmc_rfc_06;16414848]Waste of time, there's nothing wrong with Pac's shoulder. [/QUOTE] Exactly. There never was. Even if there had been Manny already put salt water on it so it's all good.

Waste of time, there's nothing wrong with Pac's shoulder. I still see this version of Pac beating Bradley up again. He has already beat him twice, can't see anything but another Pac win. A Bradley win would make 147 more…

Bradley must be related to Obama as they both give the enemy advance warning of when/how they're going to attack them.
