Undefeated Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12KOs) has a strategy in mind to topple WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs) this Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Bradley, a 4-1 underdog, feel very confident of crushing the odds against the boxer most consider either the number 1 or number 2 fighter in the world. The key to beating Pacquiao is movement, says Bradley.
After watching tapes, Bradley noticed that Pacquiao has issues with boxers who stay on the move and likes his opponents to stand right in front of him. The weapon he plans to use often is the right hand.
"Most of the guys that he's faced, they stand right in front of him and they come forward. But when you've got a guy that can be right here one minute and be over there the next minute, and weave over here now, it's a lot more difficult because he has to find me," Bradley said.
"I think that Manny has to worry about my right hand, and my movement. My movement is going to kill him. It's going to throw him off. He needs a fighter that stands in front of him, you know."
