Pacquiao Not Surprised That Bradley Defeated Marquez

By Keith Idec

Manny Pacquiao wasn’t surprised when he found out Timothy Bradley out-boxed Juan Manuel Marquez on Oct. 12 in Las Vegas.

“I didn’t watch the fight with Marquez and Bradley, but I heard what happened,” Pacquiao said from his training camp in the Philippines. “I already predicted that Bradley would win the fight, so I’m not surprised with what happened.”

Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs) also said he hasn’t given much thought to whether he would want a fifth fight against Marquez or a rematch against Bradley after boxing Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23 KOs) in an HBO Pay-Per-View main event Nov. 23 in Macau, China. Marquez knocked Pacquiao unconscious in the sixth round of their Dec. 8 bout in Las Vegas, but Bradley (31-0, 12 KOs, 1 NC) owns a very controversial split-decision win over Pacquiao and is more marketable after overcoming Mexico’s Marquez (55-7-1, 40 KOs) by split decision in their 12-round fight for Bradley’s WBO welterweight title.

“Right now, I’m not thinking about the next fight,” said Pacquiao, who hasn’t fought since Marquez knocked him out 10½ months ago. “What I have right now is focus on my training and making sure I give a good fight, making sure that the victory is mine.”
