Bradley's Trainer Says Pacquiao's Career Nears End

By Salvador Rodriguez

Joel Diaz, the trainer of WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, feels Manny Pacquiao, a champion in eight divisions, is nearing the end of his long career. Diaz is not convinced that Pacquiao is back to being the same fight who stopped Oscar De La Hoya, Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton, Erik Morales and Marco Antonio Barrera. 

Diaz sees Pacquiao in the same light as Bradley does - a boxer who no longer has that drive and killer instinct. While Bradley views Pacquiao as a fighter who is too compassionate, Diaz views Pacquiao as a fighter who's been affected by a long, tough career.

Bradley, who won a controversial twelve round split decision over Pacquiao in 2012, is readying to face the Filipino star in a rematch on April 12th from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"A lot of people are saying that Pacquiao is still bringing what took him to the top, but for me - Juan Manuel Márquez left his mark on him, with this knockout [in 2012], it affected him," Diaz said.

"In fact everything in the boxing has a beginning and an end. It's happened to every fighter. Julio Caesar Chávez was invincible and then he went down. Manny Pacquiao was indestructible and he already lost that [aura]. I do not have doubt that at the age of 36, already with 60 fights, 60 wars, and 60 preparations, the body is suffering from the work, the punishment, and there has to come the moment where you think about saying goodbye. Sometimes it is necessary to see it like that and it is time for Pacquiao to do it."

[QUOTE=cameltoe]Agree however I don't think Pacquiao or Mayweather can afford to wait any longer. If Pacquiao looks good against Bradley they need to just get it done before it's too late. Mayweather will be screaming in a few years once retired about how he would've whooped Pacquiao.... my r...

[QUOTE=Snake4380]Agree with the sentiment that Pacquiao should being to consider retirement in the near future. I'm not concerned about this fight with Bradley. If Pac still looks good against Bradley, I'd say Pac should try to get the Marquez rematch in the fall. If not, Pac should take the best...

This guy Diaz thinks he have Floyd Mayweather but no is Tim Bradley The last time I heard the same was from Brandon "Punching Bag" Rios and he gets schooled. Diaz can't talk, his fighter doesn't have Power to knock Manny Pacquiao and I bet Tim Bradley isn't faster like Pacquiao, the more the talk...
