Casamayor: After I Beat Tim Bradley, I Want Pacquiao

By Ryan Burton

Former multi-division world champion Joel Casamayor has the odds stacked against him tonight when he faces the undefeated Tim Bradley in the latter's Top Rank debut.

Casamayor laughed off the critics who are saying that he doesn't have a chance in his fight.  He also revealed that he made changes to his camp that have him feeling very confident.

"They don't know what they are talking about. I am going to win this fight," stated Casamayor. "Bob (Santos) has been my nutritionist and speed and strength coach for this fight. I feel strong and I am in great shape."

Santos is also Casamayor's co-manager. In addition to working with the Cuban star he also manages three division champion Robert Guerrero.

Casamayor believes a win over Bradley will put him in the mix for a big fight. He has his sights firmly set on Pacquiao.

"They say the winner of this fight gets to fight Pacquiao. That is the fight I want. I want to fight the top guys," Casamayor told BoxingScene.com.

When Pacquiao and Casamayor both campaigned at 130 and 135 pounds there was a lot of speculation that the two would meet in the ring. Casamayor said that he believes that Pacquiao didn't have the experience necessary at that time to face him and that is why the fight never happened. 

"We were supposed to fight back then (in the super featherweight and lightweight divisions) but he wasn't ready for me. Now he has the experience so they will make the fight."

Urgh so many fighters calling his name out when they have done nothing to suggest they would stand a chance. I'm starting to think he should just round up, the likes of Casamayor, Maidana and Guerrero and fight them on…
