Robert Garcia Breaks Down Pacquiao vs. Bradley Battle

Robert Garcia Breaks Down Manny Pacquiao-Tim Bradley

By Ryan Maquiñana

Trainer Robert Garcia gave BoxingScene.com his take on Saturday’s pay-per-view showdown between Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley, which takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. HBO pay-per-view will carry the event.

“It’s going to be a great performance from Pacquiao,” Garcia said.  “He’s the best at it.  He’s done it for many years, and he’s always given us great fights.  But he has a great opponent in front of him—a fighter that’s hungry, a fighter that has experience and is going to come out and do his best to pull it out.  It’s not going to be easy for Bradley, but he is going to try.”

Garcia then prognosticated the victor.

“I think that Pacquiao wins by decision, but it won’t be easy, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Bradley pulls it off, because he’s got great trainers, he’s had a great training camp.  I would be happy for [Bradley], because I know him personally.  He’s a great person.  He’s a loyal fighter, and he deserves the best.”
