Bradley: When Was The Last Time Pacquiao Had a KO?

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley continues to doubt the words of trainer Freddie Roach, who warns that a vicious, aggressive Manny Pacquiao will be in the ring on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Bradley won a controversial twelve round split decision over Pacquiao in June of 2012 at the same venue.

Roach says Pacquiao showed too much compassion against Bradley in their first encounter. He promised Bradley that he would be facing the "old Pacquiao" next month, but Bradley is not buying his words.

Pacquiao has not scored a TKO win since November 2009, when he stopped Miguel Cotto.

"Well, when was the last time you saw him knock somebody out?  It's been a long time.  Then he had a guy sitting in front of him, he was a tough guy -- Brandon Rios -- I have a lot of respect for -- but he was right there in front of him and he couldn't get rid of him.  He is supposed to be one of the vicious punchers in the game.  I have never seen Manny Pacquiao take a step back before - I think it was the last round of the Rios fight and he had Rios trapped in the corner and you saw Manny take his foot off the gas pedal and it was unbelievable to me," Bradley said.

"In our fight, I had two wounded feet and he couldn't take me out.  What makes you think he can take me out with two good feet?  I had two wounded feet and that's when I started noticing - he has the ability, man - now don't get it twisted as me saying he doesn't have the fire or the passion - Manny Pacquiao used to come in blazing and knock guys out, just knock them out and he didn't mess around.  Now it looks like he is more compassionate towards his opponents and that's not good for boxing."

Tim, has no KO punch at all... even if uses his big head to headbutt the other guy he can't even KO his opponent. Pac didn't KO him but he ended in a wheel chair after the fight. He has…

Its almost as though Bradley was being paid by Arum to piss Manny off and snap him out of his nice guy phase.
