Timothy Bradley is on a collision course with superstar Manny Pacquiao as they will battle it out on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. During the press tour which started at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, Bradley spoke to BoxingScene.com and made it clear that even though he’s moving up to 147 pounds, he’s not the smaller fighter.

“Look at me man. Look at me baby” said Bradley as he flexed his muscles underneath his nice suit. “Manny Pacquiao standing next to me is the littler guy. He’s about a half inch or an inch taller than I am which I like. That’s great. But I’m the bigger guy coming in. I’m about 165 right now. Once I start training camp, I’ll get down and I’ll be very strong and a physical guy to him at 147 pounds.”

There were early reports that Pacquiao would have a hard time being motivated for this fight since he would feel Bradley wouldn’t pose much of a threat. But Bradley assures that Pacquiao will have no trouble getting up for this fight.

“Oh, he’s motivated for this fight. We were at a photo shoot yesterday. We were doing things together and he saw my physique. He saw that I’m a beast. So he’s definitely going to be motivated” expressed the undefeated champion.

In his last fight, many felt Pacquiao received a questionable decision against Juan Manuel Marquez. Most felt Marquez should’ve received the victory in the third fight of their epic trilogy. Going into this fight, Bradley was asked if he felt he could get a decision over Pacquiao and if it’s something in the back of his mind.

“Absolutely not. I think the fighter that’s going to get in the ring and fight the best fight is going to get the decision. I don’t look to the judges; I don’t look to anybody for help. I’m not in the business for that. The fighter who won the fight should definitely win the fight” said Bradley.

sadly Pacquiao's "throw wild combinations and lunge the right hook and take step to the right" will work on Bradley.

Stylistically i think Bradley gives Pac problems. Bradley is FAST coming in the inside, is fast enough to follow Pacquiao and has the goods to have Pac be weary of the straight right hand and is good on the outside as well and can fight on the back foot. Even though Bradley don't have One punch k...

[QUOTE=Scarab]Dude, I don't how you could be excited about Cotto's fight. The guy is severely beaten and broken. I mean, after Margarito and Pacquiao, he will only win a fight with total greenhorns or a disabled fighter like Y Foreman. You think Floyd will risk his 0 if he know Cotto still has "i...
