Tim Bradley: I Never Said I Lost! Why Would I Say That?

By Ryan Burton

Newly crowned WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley Jr. appeared on the most recent edition of The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene.com's official audio show. Bradley spoke at length about his controversial win over Manny Pacquiao this past Saturday.

Shortly after Bradley's victory, Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank told reporters that Bradley told him in the ring - "I did my best. I just couldn't beat this guy."

The Palm Springs, CA native vehemently denied making that statement and said that he felt all along that he won the fight. 

"I never said that I didn't beat this guy. I just said I did my best. I wouldn't say that I couldn't beat him. Why would I say that?  Especially when I felt I won. My trainer told me right after the fight that I beat him," Bradley would tell The Boxing Lab.

The 29-year old praised Pacquiao and said that he puts his combinations together better than any other fighter that he has faced. He also gave the Filipino credit for his ring smarts.

"I have been in the ring with faster guys but he is a great fighter. When he puts his punches together all of his punches are solid. There aren't any weak punches.  He is a lot smarter than I thought he was," Bradley stated.

He also said that he feels that he is on the same level as the Congressman.  When the fight was first announced many fans were skeptical of Bradley's chances in the fight. He feels that he proved his place amongst boxing's elite.

"I am right there with him to be honest with you. He couldn't knock me out like he was supposed to. I wasn't supposed to be in the ring with him. I fought toe to toe with him at times then I fought smarter and boxed from the outside," Bradley said.

[QUOTE=EdMon917;12243021]Yes but none shook him up or left him hurt and bruised. Pacquiao is over the hill and will continue declining the more he fights. It's the sad truth. If PacMan still had it we would have seen Bradley laid…
