Former eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao has promised to batter WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In June of 2012, Bradley won a controversial twelve round split decision over Pacquiao to capture the WBO crown.
Bradley believes he clearly won the fight and despite suffering injuries in the fight he was still capable of beating Pacquiao, who claims he was "too nice" when he faced Bradley the first time around. The second time around, Pacquiao is focused on getting a knockout and plans to go after Bradley from the opening bell, chopping away with power punch combinations until the undefeated boxer falls.
“The only way Bradley can beat me this time is to knock me out. He cannot outbox me. I will be the aggressor. I will throw a lot of punches at him – more than I threw against Rios -- and I will land them. Last time I was too nice. This time, I will finish what I start. I want to get back that belt he won off of me," Pacquiao said.
