Bradley Sr: If No Injury, Pacquiao Would've Been KO'd!

By Chris Robinson

The near future of Manny Pacquiao is still very much uncertain, with the eight-division champion having yet to iron out his next opponent for a proposed December 8th return at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the moment, Juan Manuel Marquez seems likely to land a shot at the Filipino icon, with Tim Bradley, who upset Pacquiao on June 9th via split-decision, also said to be in the running.

I touched bases with Bradley’s father Tim Sr., also known as ‘Ray’, on Wednesday evening to get his thoughts on everything and he immediately let his hopes be known.

“Both fighters owe it to the fans,” Bradley stated. “The fans want to see a rematch. God is good and my son was victorious. He worked his butt off, he’s not getting justice. They should automatically jump on it and redo it.”

There seems to be a strong possibility that Pacquiao could sit out the rest of the year in hopes of securing a date with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the first quarter of 2013 but such a move would offend the elder Bradley.

“I haven’t heard anything about that. But it wouldn’t be right, to let the fans wait,” said Bradley Sr.

If Pacquiao does opt to forego a fight in December, that would leave room for Bradley and Marquez to face one another. It’s a fight that is well-received by fans and insiders alike but Bradley Sr. can’t even shift his mind to ponder such a scenario.

“Right now, I’m not even focused on any other fight other than a rematch with my son and Manny Pacquiao,” he added. “Because, I’m old-school. When a champion loses a fight, he should automatically want to get his title back.”

Bradley Sr. also offered up his thoughts on his son’s performance against Pacquiao and was quick to point out that we would have seen a completely different fight had Tim not strained ligaments in his left foot while also suffering a swollen right ankle during his match with Pacquiao.

“The fight went according to plan,” Bradley said emphatically. “I feel that Pacquiao would have got knocked the h*ll out if my son would have been able to shift the power on either leg but he could not do that. He did a lot of slap shots, Muhammad Ali stuff.

“They’re saying he can’t hit,” Bradley Sr. continued. “Sh*t, I didn’t see Manny Pacquiao step on him and try to take him out. In the fourth round, when he damn near broke his leg, he ran up on him like a wounded chicken. But other than that, he still couldn’t take him out.”

Obviously not having been able to soak up the moment how he would have liked due to the backlash from the general public, who overwhelmingly favored Pacquiao, Bradley Sr. feels a second encounter will be far more revealing.

“The first fight was a hell of a fight and the second fight, if it does happen, it’s going to be a great, great fight,” Bradley Sr. said. “Matter of fact, it’s going to be historic.”

[QUOTE=chargerhemi06;12483536]Pac is getting old and doesnt have time to fight fights that he openly admitted and that majority of the crowd thinks won. If cotto agreed to a catchweight of 150 he is still by far a bigger risk for…
