WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley is not feeling any pressure, but says he still has a lot to prove in the rematch with Manny Pacquiao, an eight division world champion, on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Bradley (31-0, 12KOs) won a controversial twelve round split decision over Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38KOs) in June of 2012, at the same venue.
Since that fight, their careers went in two separate directions. Pacquiao was knocked out cold in six rounds by Juan Manuel Marquez and then won an easy decision over Brandon Rios. Bradley beat Ruslan Provodnikov in a Fight of The Year clash and then won a twelve round decision over Marquez.
He feels if Pacquiao takes another loss the Filipino star's career would likely be over.
"I have a lot to prove, I have to prove the first fight wasn't a fluke," Bradley said. "Being unbeaten is a great accomplishment. If Pacquiao loses this fight, he knows his career is probably over."Tags: Timothy Bradley , Manny Pacquiao , Pacquiao-Bradley Rematch , Pacquiao vs Bradley Rematch
