Manny Pacquiao: Bradley Hurt His Feet From Running

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com and a select group of members of the media spoke to former eight division champion Manny Pacquiao shortly after his "Grand Arrival" to the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.

Pacquiao faces Juan Manuel Marquez on HBO pay-per-view this Saturday.  He was asked what it would take for him to be interested in a rematch with WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, whom he lost a controversial split decision to in June.

Freddie Roach interjected and said that, "Bradley needs to win a big fight. We already know we beat him. If he wins a big fight then we would look at it."

Bradley injured both of his feet in that fight and it was pointed out that Pacquiao couldn't knock him out even with his feet being injured. Pacquiao quickly shot back and said that Bradley wouldn't engage and that there was a reason why he injured his feet.

"He hurt his feet because he was running," a smiling Pacquiao remarked. "That's why I didn't knock him out. If he wasn't running he wouldn't have hurt his feet."
