By Ryan Burton recently spoke with WBO junior welterweight champion Tim Bradley about his upcoming fight against Manny Pacquiao. The undefeated Bradley will be venturing up to welterweight for the second time in his career. He insists that the weight won't be a factor and that in fact he will be better with the additional weight.

"I walk around over at over 160 pounds," stated Bradley."147 pounds is my natural weight class. The fans will see that on June 9th," he continued.

The Palm Springs, California based fighter feels that the key to the fight won't be the weight but will be his ability to absorb the powerful Filipino's punches. He said that he will know early on if he is able to withstand Pacquiao's power.

"The key is going to be if I can take his power. I will know early. I will know by the second round if I can take it. If I can then Pacquiao is in for a long night," Bradley told Boxingscene.

The next obvious question is what will Bradley do if he feels that he can't take Pacquiao's punches. Bradley said that he will have a plan for that scenario as well.

"If I have a problem with his power, I will have a plan for that too. (Trainer) Joel (Diaz) is already working on a game plan. We go into every fight with a Plan A, B and C. We have different plans for different scenarios. I will be ready and I will be able to adjust in the ring," said Bradley.
