Tim Bradley may find himself playing the role of a heavy underdog heading into his June 9th challenge for Manny Pacquiao’s WBO welterweight crown, yet the Palm Springs, California native seems to be relishing the moment.
A stop by nearby Indio today offered up an exclusive look in Bradley’s training camp as he prepares for Pacquiao and despite the fight being well over a month away, the 28-year old junior welterweight champion is already in tremendous shape and also in great spirits.
On the first day of our visit, Bradley, who had already trained at 6 in the morning, could be seen engaging in another light workout just before Noon under the watchful eye of his longtime trainer Joel Diaz, as well as his father Timothy Sr. and another team member, ‘Coach Jackson’, as he is referred to.
One thing that is evident from this camp, aside from Bradley obviously putting in the hard work, is just how confident everyone in the camp is, as chants of ‘Easy work’ referring to Pacquiao could be heard throughout the gym.
