Reporter 1: You said you're not much of a talker, you said up there, you know, trash talk and what not. You know, Floyd's a big talker, and that's what's kind of made him the star that he is today, I mean...Can you change at all? I mean, are you inclined to change at all? You're still young. Could you become something like that?
Timothy Bradley: Naaah dude, I'll never become anything that I'm not, man. I won't sell myself out like that.
R1: Certainly Floyd's...a lot of it's shtick, a lot of it's an act 'cause it sells, I mean...
TB: Floyd, I think Floyd talks because he needs to feel like he's superior and he needs to have that confidence. Floyd doubts himself. Floyd doubts himself.
R1: Why do you think that?
TB: Why won't he fight Manny? *shrugs* Why won't he fight Manny?
Reporter 2: What do you think the reason is, in your opinion?
TB: He's scared, man. He don't wanna fight that. Floyd don't wanna fight that. He don't wanna see Manny in the ring.
Reporter 3: If he did fight Manny how do you think it goes?
TB: I think he'll beat him! Easy!
R3: You think Mayweather beats Pacquiao?
TB: I think he'll beat him easy, I don't know what he afraid of. I think he'll beat him easy.
R2: If Floyd said he'd fight you would you take that as disrespect?
TB: Huh? [Tim didn't hear the question]
R2: If Floyd said he would fight you but he won't fight Manny, do you look at that as a sign of disrespect?
R2: How would you look at that, or just, you're a smaller guy?
TB: An honor. An honor.
R1: You just heard that spiel about doctors... *inaudible*...
TB: No. Definitely not.
R1: Why Not?
TB: Because. I'm a fighter, I'm cut, I got headbutted. It's boxing. It's a fight! You deal with that. I was cut my last fight and I still continued on and fight. Regardless man, you fight to the end. You fight to the end, period.
R2: Tim, you have a message for all the fans on boxingscene.com?
TB: Sure. Sure. Let em know, all the fans out there, who believed in me, and bet on me, go collect your money and let em know, and slap them on the hand and say don't ever bet against Timothy Bradley. That kid is a great fighter. Aight? Aight? And to all the fans out there thanks for the love and support. To all my family out there, thanks for all the prayers, and all my friends.
R2: Alright thanks, Tim.
