Bradley: I'll Be Faster, Hungrier, Have Better Defense

WBO world welterweight champion Timothy Bradley has spoke of overcoming death threats following his controversial victory over Manny Pacquiao. The two pound-for-pound stars meet again this weekend as they look to confine their contentious 2012 battle to the past and prove categorically who the superior fighter is.

Following Bradley's split decision win, he has spoken on overcoming a very difficult period in his career that eventually saw him bounce back in emphatic style with wins over WBO light-welterweight world champion Ruslan Provodnikov and former four division champion Juan Manuel Marquez.

The unbeaten Bradley, who has 31 wins on his record, is using Saturday night's clash as a chance to finally silence his critics.

"Although I am certain I won the first fight, it is now time to once again show the world who Timothy Bradley really is. On April 12 we will settle once and for all the uncertainty of boxing followers and those of the fans," he said.

"This is my chance at redemption and I promise I will make the most of it."

The Californian goes into this weekend's fight knowing that question marks have arisen over Pacquiao's desire to keep boxing, particularly given recent performances, one of which saw him sensationally knocked out against Mexican ace Marquez.

The 30-year-old Bradley doesn't believe he needs the knockout, but should it be there, he will happily oblige.

"I am in a slightly different position than Marquez was. I have already beaten Pacquiao once and that was on my first try," said Bradley.

"I don't think I have to knock him out to get a definite result but if the knockout presents itself I will take advantage of it.

"The first fight I injured my foot in the second round and by the fourth round my ankle on my other foot was also messed up. The second half of the fight I was coming on strong with two bad feet. I didn't have the movement that I normally have and I was out-working him.

"I was fighting all three minutes of every round and not just the last 30 seconds of every round. This second fight against Manny Pacquiao I will pick up right where I left off the first fight. This will just be rounds 13 through 24."

The reigning WBO welterweight champion will also take confidence in the fact he managed to beat Pacquiao conqueror Marquez so convincingly, a wider victory than the scorecards actually suggested.

"I was able to show my boxing ability against Marquez with two good feet so this will be no different," said Bradley.

"I will be faster than Pacquiao, I will have better defence than Pacquiao, I will be hungrier than Pacquiao.

"I have been in the ring with Pacquiao so I know exactly what to expect. There are a few adjustments that I will make, and with two good feet under me, and at the end of the night I will be victorious again."

Prepare for battle. Bradley by decision if he don't fight into Pac's strengths.

The discrepencie lies in the fact that JMM did better than you did against Pac, yet you beat Pac on the first time. And saying you fought for 3 minutes really means you was surviving for 3 minutes of every round. If you are going to solely counterpunch youd better make sure those punches are...
