Herrera: Tim Bradley is Going To Outbox Manny Pacquiao

By Edward Chaykovsky

Junior welterweight contender Mauricio Herrera is picking undefeated WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley to pull off the upset, by getting his second victory over eight division king Manny Pacquiao on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Bradley won a controversial twelve round split decision over Pacquiao in June of 2012. Pacquiao, who says he let his foot off the gas in the first fight, has promised to get revenge by unloading the kitchen in the rematch.

Herrera expects a more experienced, more confident Bradley to get the win.

"I think Bradley is gonna outbox Pacquiao. He moves around and he’s really hard to hit. I think Pacquiao is gonna have trouble hitting Bradley. I think he’s more confident, more experienced now with the fights he has behind him. I think he knows Pacquiao a little more from the first fight," Herrera told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"That was Bradley’s first big fight and I think he won’t have too many nerves this time, I think he’ll adjust better and earlier. I give an edge to Bradley, but you know Pacquiao has that one punch, but I’ll go a little towards Bradley on that one."

[QUOTE=LoadedWraps;14374406]Manny has a speed, and power advantage. His footwork might be considered superior as well, but name me one thing Manny does as a fighter better than Bradley. One.[/QUOTE] What? You just named three, but to continue Manny slips punches…
