Pacquiao Wants Bradley Rematch, Targets Knockout Ending

By Ryan Burton

MGM Grand, Las Vegas, NV - Welterweight Manny Pacquiao spoke to the media shortly after his controversial split decision loss to Tim Bradley. The eight division champion was shocked at the scores and felt he won the fight.

"I respect the decision but 100% I believe I won the fight. I have to respect the decision and give my opponent credit," Pacquiao said.

The Filipino also said that he wants to face Bradley again. The date of November 10th had been reserved at the MGM Grand for a rematch if Bradley was to win.

"I want the rematch but its up to my promoter Bob Arum," Pacquiao said.

Arum said he had no problem making the fight if the congressman wanted it.

"If you want it Manny, we will do it. We have the right to it and it's up to you. If you want it that's what we do," Arum told Pacquiao. 

Pacquiao finished his thoughts on the rematch by saying that he doesn't want to let the fight go the distance and that he didn't want to leave it in the judges hands.  

In a rematch my thinking is I don't want it to go the whole twelve rounds," Pacquiao
concluded.

Espn reporting ticket brokers telling bob. No one is interested in a rematch. Combine this with the fact there is no investigation pending and bob saying no investigation no rematch and well maybe there won't be a rematch

If a rematch happens, I'll put all my points on Bradley. The last 5 rounds showed me all I need to see. Pacquiao had a prime opportunity to KO Bradley on Saturday night. He couldn't do it. Bradley is not…
