Bradley: I Took Pacquiao's Best Punch, Holt Hit Harder!

By Ryan Burton

Newly crowned WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley suffered injuries to both of his feet during his controversial split decision victory over Manny Pacquiao from last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Bradley said that the injuries played a big role in limiting his mobility during the fight.

"It was the ankle. You have no stability. No leverage on your shots. Its just an uncomfortable feeling. I would have done a lot better if it wasn't hurt. If he wants to do the rematch I'm all for it," Bradley said. 

Bradley spoke to us at length on The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene.com's official audio show. While Bradley praised the Filipino for his smarts in the ring and for his combination punching, he said that Pacquiao isn't the hardest puncher that he has faced.

"I took his best punch. He's a good puncher but Kendall Holt is a better puncher. Holt has one punch knockout power while Pacquiao puts you away with  combination punching," Bradley revealed.

[QUOTE=Bushbaby;12246887]I know Holt hits harder. I was trying to tell Pacman fanboys that, but they wouldn't have it. The proof is in the pudding.[/QUOTE] People have trouble grasping the idea that there is a difference between being an all around…

[QUOTE=jreckoning;12249849]I think Pac took it too easy realizing Bradley punched like a woman and was running away. Bradley definitely stole some rounds because Pac was half-assing it as times.[/QUOTE] Don't get me wrong, I thought it was a Pac fight…
