But like I said, he’s a good fighter, but I think he needs to fight somebody like myself before he even steps in the ring to fight Pacquiao.”
Thats an indirect admission by Bradley that he felt Pacquiao beat him. He's suggesting that if Rios can't beat him there's no way that he beats Pacquiao. Which, in simple terms, equates to "Pacquiao beat me, if you can't beat me, you can't beat Pacquiao".
Sure, it's triangle theory by Timmy, but an interesting admission nonetheless. It appears as if he's finally accepted that Pacquiao defeated him, even if he hasn't all-out blatantly admitted it just yet.
I rather see him fight rios than pac again. I don't think it is an admission rather the guy is trying to save a big fight for him. What else can he do.
