Pacquiao: Bradley Improved, He Hurt Me on The Chin

Manny Pacquiao avenged a polarizing loss to Timothy Bradley and regained the World Boxing Organization welterweight world title Saturday with a 12-round unanimous decision over the previously unbeaten American.

The Filipino ring icon improved to 56-5 with two drawn and 38 wins inside the distance as he recaptured the title he lost to Bradley on June 9, 2012.

Although he couldn't get his first knockout win since 2009, Pacquiao lived up to his pre-fight promise to come out with more aggression, denying Bradley's avowed aim of sending him into retirement with another defeat.

"I think I can go another two years," said Pacquiao, who had been stung by Bradley's pre-fight claim that at 35, Pacquiao had lost the fire that had made him one of the most feared fighters in the world.

"I'm so happy to be world champion again," Pacquiao said. "Tim Bradley was not an easy fight. Bradley is better from the first fight. He hurt me on the chin. I knew I had to do more this time than I did the last time."

Bradley, who said he fought from the first round with a right calf injury, fell to 31-1, with 12 knockouts.

Judge Glenn Trowbridge scored the bout 118-110 for Pacquiao, while both Michael Pernick and Canada's Craig Metcalf saw it 116-112 for the 'Pacman,' whose every move was cheered by the star-studded crowd of 15,601 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Bradley could go back to 140 and be huge there. He has put on so much bulk in the weight room.

[QUOTE=JDD1]Interesting twisting of what actually happened. I guess thats why you reached the conclusion you did. You are entitled to your opinion. Asbbq f I stated earlier-ESPN poll indicates what a lot of casual fans think about floyd. Also, as boxing history shows us, great fighters are not...

[QUOTE=djtmal]And come on here. It wasn't as simple as you make it out to be. It was testing that had never been used in boxing. So what was the basis for holding the little dude to this standard that nobody else had to go thru?[/QUOTE] They were both doing testing, not just Manny. The $10 mi...
