Tim Bradley on Pacquiao Bout: I Can Adjust To Any Style

By Ryan Burton

Tim Bradley recently visited with us on The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene.com's official audio show. The undefeated WBO junior welterweight champion said that part of the reason why he is an underdog is because a lot of the general public doesn't really know much about him. He went on to say that he is a very confident fighter and the fans will see that when he sets foot in the ring.

"The confidence is there. I know how hard I work. The fact is that no one knows me. No one really understands what I bring. All I hear is I'm a high pressure volume puncher and I'm like wow," said a bemused Bradley.

The Palm Springs, CA native said that he keeps reading that he will go out similarily to the way former lineal junior welterweight champion Ricky Hatton went out against Pacquiao. Hatton was iced in the 2nd round of their May 2009 fight.
 
"They say it will be like the Ricky Hatton fight. That (style) is what I have been showing in maybe my last 3 fights because my opponents couldn't handle it but I can adjust in the ring. I laugh when I hear it," stated Bradley. "If they think that's all I am they are in for a surprise. Go back and look at the Lamont Peterson fight," he continued as he referred to when he outboxed Peterson and gave him his only loss to date.

Bradley said that he has the ability to adjust to whatever his opponent does in the ring. He also said that people don't realize how high his ring IQ is until they see him spar.

"I can adjust to pretty much any style. I've faced so many different styles. A lot of people come to my camp and expect one thing and are like 'dude you are smart' when they see what I do. I don't get credit for my smarts. You have to see me spar to see that," he explained.
