Timothy Bradley: I Will Know in The First Round If I'll Win

By Ryan Burton

On the most recent edition of The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene.com's official audio show, undefeated Tim Bradley told us that he is relaxed as he enters the final stages of his training camp for his June 9th pay-per-view fight against WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao.

"I'm just thinking about backing up everything I've said. I'm just thinking about doing what I got to do. I want to see what it feels like when I step in with the best pound for pound," Bradley said.

The Palm Springs, California native said that it won't take him long to know how difficult his fight against Pacquiao will be. 

"I will know in the first round if I am going to win the fight. I will know if it's going to be an easy or a difficult fight. I want to test his speed, his power.  It only takes me two rounds to figure guys out. I figure guys out fast and I am like 'I know what he's trying to do. He's trying to go to the body' and I take that away from him," Bradley would tell us on The Boxing Lab.

The 28-year old fighter said that while he has been labeled a volume puncher, he has many other attributes.  Bradley said that he uses whatever skills are needed to beat the opponent in front of him and that against Pacquiao he will need to put all of his talent on display. 

"A lot of people call me a high volume puncher and it is true, I have done that in some fights. If I see a guy isn't on my level I just take them out. In the Pacquiao fight I will need to use my boxing ability and my pressure as well," he concluded.
