Bradley: Roach is Retarded Comparing Me To Ricky Hatton

By Osman Rodriguez

Undefeated Timothy Bradley appeared on WLIE radio in New York and blasted Freddie Roach, trainer of Manny Pacquiao, for comparing him to Ricky Hatton, who Pacquiao knocked out cold in two rounds in 2008.

“He fights just like Hatton with a stronger chin,” said Roach to The Philippine Star. “He thinks he’s the best conditioned boxer in the world. For sure, he works out everyday. From what I know, he walks around at 165 pounds with very little body fat. He’s all muscle. I don’t think he’ll come in lighter than Manny.”

Bradley (28-0, 12KOs) challenges Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs) on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I hear Freddie Roach is comparing me to Ricky Hatton and I'm like 'dude, you guys are retarded if you think I fight like Ricky Hatton.' Honestly, but no offense, what you guys looking at? And then they bring in this Russian guy [Ruslan Provodnikov] who comes forward and is a banger, and I'm like 'wow, these guys really don't know what I can do.' It's funny, they think I'm just this face-first brawler and I'm like 'you guys are going to be in for a rude awakening.' I can fight, I can box and I can brawl," Bradley said.

[B]I'm wondering if they could've thought of a more interesting title for the matchup. Seeing Pac's steroid enhanced head and Bradley's dome of mass destruction couldn't they have called it The Ped vs. The Head? Or Simply Head to Head?[/B]

[QUOTE=hougigo;12132725]Okay.... based on what?[/QUOTE] They think roids is like STDs, except it's somehow transferred when they sign a contract to fight Pacquiao. Amazingly they keep quiet about Marquez lately.
