Tim Bradley: Pacquiao is Declining, I'll Beat Him Easier!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley is very much in favor of a staging an immediate rematch against Manny Pacquiao. Bradley won a controversial twelve round split decision over the Filipino superstar on June 9th in Las Vegas. He feels Pacquiao is declining and no longer the same pound-for-pound boxer who battered opponents like Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton and Miguel Cotto. Bradley told hometown paper, The Desert Sun, that he'll beat Pacquiao even "easier" in the rematch. Pacquiao is scheduled to return on November 10th and Bradley is one of the possible options for the date.

"He's declining, honestly he is declining. He had me hurt in the fourth round, he didn't try to come out and finish me, the old Manny would've. The old Manny would've, I just think there's a lot of wear and tear on him, his mind is in 50,000 different places. He's got his newfound religion and stuff like that, and I just feel like maybe he's worn out, honestly. I have a busy schedule but his schedule is like all day busy, like 24/7, he never stops moving. Even when I saw him in the press conference I was like, “This guy looks tired.” I saw his eyes, I saw the bags underneath his eyes. I was like this guy is tired. I don't even think this guy wants to be here," Bradley said.

Is it just me or does it make way too much sense for Pacquiao/Cotto II @ 150lbs on Nov. 10th and Bradley/Marquez a month later for the Welterweight title? I mean c'mon, just get it done.

It's just a fact. He tried to get the ref to stop the Cotto fight and was relenting on the pressure after Cotto was no longer a threat. If you can't see that then you should atleast do us a…
