Tim Bradley: Pacquiao is Not The Bigger Man in The Fight

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12KOs) doesn't consider himself as "the smaller man" in the upcoming fight with Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs), the WBO's champion at 147-pounds. During his amateur career, Bradley was fighting at 147, and then moved up to 152 when he tried to qualify for the U.S. Olympic team. Bradley previously fought at 147 in 2010 and won a twelve round decision over Carlos Abregu on HBO.

Bradley says that he walks around at 160, 165-pounds, while Pacquiao walks around at a lower weight. He says Pacquiao's strong legs, where some believe his power comes from, is the only size difference.

“A lot of people think I'm the smaller guy, that I'm the little guy,” Bradley told hometown paper The Desert Sun. “This is what the public doesn't realize, when I was 16, I didn't fight at 118. I fought at 152 pounds when I was 16. I naturally walk around at 160, 165 pounds. Manny probably gets no higher than 155, maybe 150 walking around. I'm a naturally bigger guy even though I fought at 140 and he fought at 147.

“If you look at my muscle mass, his muscle mass, I'm the bigger guy. What Manny does have is bigger legs. His legs are ridiculous. Where he makes up for it is his leg, I make up for it with the top half of my body. I'm used to fighting guys 6-0, 5-10. So the whole power thing of me being the little guy, you can throw that out the window. That won't be the case during the fight.”

All Timmy has to do is train well and avoid having injuries. he only needs to show up in the ring and the money is his. He can play dead if he chooses to, but as long as he gets the money it will be fine.
