Marquez: Bradley Must Box, Not Trade With Pacquiao

By Miguel Rivera

Mexican superstar Juan Manuel Marquez could see Timothy Bradley defeating Manny Pacquiao on April 12 - if Bradley refuses to trade punches.

Marquez fought Pacquiao four times. They fought to draw in 2004, with Pacquiao winning close decisions in 2008 and 2011. And then Marquez knocked him out cold in the sixth round of their fourth meeting in 2012.

Bradley won a controversial decision over Pacquiao in 2012, and then last October he won a twelve round decision over Marquez.

"Bradley cannot allow himself to trade punches. He has to use his technique and speed as he's always done. I have always said that an elusive fighter, who steps side to the side, can win fights. But you can't go backwards without throwing punches. Bradley has to connect with punches and box, use the skills that best suits his needs...stepping to the side, speed, but connecting," Marquez told Golpe a Golpe.

"Bradley has to get in there and box without stopping. He has to use that technique, move, and not allow himself to get lured in to exchange punches. He has to use jab, hook, one-two combinations and move. That is what he should do and that is going to affect Manny Pacquiao a lot."

[QUOTE=Ivansmamma;14357931]Marquez probably prefers a bradley victory cause that's the rematch he rather fight. Win or lose against Pacquiao it will be hell. Win or lose against Bradley he won't get hurt much.[/QUOTE] Yep. Nevermind that rematch where he made PAC…

[QUOTE=Everlast03;14359007]Marquez complained about Bradley not trading punches with him, and instead choosing to box( which he called running), now he's advising Bradley to box Pacquiao and not go toe to toe?[/QUOTE] lol so true.. Even nacho said Bradley ran too…

Marquez is such an expert these days but was afraid to take a part Provodnikov who just KO'd Alvarado. Because Marquez knows better.
