Joel Diaz, trainer of WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, is very happy with his fighter's ongoing training camp for the rematch with Manny Pacquiao, taking place on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Pacquiao will look to avenge a 2012 controversial twelve round split decision loss.
"Bradley is looking very sharp. The big difference is that now Bradley walks around at 155 pounds and that has allowed us to focus on the fight and the strategy. The last time with Pacquiao, and with Ruslan Provodnikov and Juan Manuel Marquez - [Bradley] had risen to 185 pounds. This time he is walking around at under 160 pounds, and that's very important," said Diaz.
"We know it will be a tough fight, but this time [we're looking to win things clearly]. Pacquiao's only chance is if he knocks Bradley out, but that won't be easy. What I am sure of is that if it does not [knock Bradley out], then Bradley is going to hurt him."Tags: Timothy Bradley , Manny Pacquiao , Pacquiao-Bradley Rematch , Pacquiao vs Bradley Rematch
