WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley believes he has the upper-hand with Manny Pacquiao and his team. Bradley has been making comments about Pacquiao being a more compassionate person who lost his killer instinct. In 2012, Bradley won a twelve round split decision over Pacquiao. Some felt the decision was controversial and the two boxers will do it again on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Bradley's comments on Pacquiao losing his killer drive has promoted some harsh and very threatening responses from the Filipino star and his trainer Freddie Roach.
“All you need is some inspiration and there was some fire from what I said,” Bradley said to The Desert Sun. “I think yeah, he will be the best Manny Pacquiao we’ve seen in a long time because it will have to be. That’s the only Manny Pacquiao that can deal with Tim Bradley. If he’s compassionate, he won’t be able to deal with me, period.
“Don’t show no compassion. Don’t show me none of that. I want the best Manny Pacquiao in the world. I want to fight the best. I want to put on a great show for all the fans on pay-per-view. I want to beat him, I want to put on a great show and I want to get what I didn’t get in the first fight, and that’s the credit I beat Manny Pacquiao. That’s it. That’s that.”
“On April 12, everyone is going to witness something great. I’m telling you I’m ready to go,” Bradley said. “I’m so fired up, I’m so determined, Manny Pacquaio gotta kill me to stop me.”Tags: Timothy Bradley , Manny Pacquiao , Pacquiao-Bradley Rematch , Pacquiao vs Bradley Rematch
