Marquez: Bradley Will Be a Tougher Fight Than Pacquiao

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former four division beltholder Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) views WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (30-0, 12KOs)as a much tougher fight than Manny Pacquiao, who the Mexican veteran faced four times. Marquez face Bradley on October 12th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

By the time Marquez faced Pacquiao for a fourth time last December, he knew the Filipino star like the back of his hand. He was able to land a perfect counter in the sixth round, which knocked Pacquiao out cold. Bradley also beat Pacquiao, with a twelve round controversial decision last June.

"Bradley should be more complicated than Pacquiao because of his style. With Pacquiao, after three fights, I knew exactly what I had to do. And with Bradley I only know what I've seen of his fights in the ring. He's a very fast fighter, moves a lot and we must work hard in terms of speed, cover those exits, counter his speed with speed," Marquez said.
