Hall of Famer Kostya Tszyu is eager to watch this coming Saturday's rematch between WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley and eight-division beltholder Manny Pacquiao. The fight takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and HBO Pay-Per-View will carry the action. Bradley won the first meeting, in June of 2012, with a controversial twelve round split decision.
While Tszyu views it as a "50-50" fight, he agrees with Bradley's belief that Pacquiao has lost his hunger and killer instinct.
"I agree with what Timothy said, that Manny Pacquiao is not hungry anymore. You can’t be on top of your game if you’re not hungry anymore. I lost my hunger in the last couple of weeks of my fights because when you achieve everything in sports, it’s so hard to push yourself over and over the limit," Tszyu said to On The Ropes Boxing Radio.
"That’s the thing, Manny did tremendous, became a legend in the ring, but he lost a bit of hunger. Maybe the loss against Timothy may help him to find his hunger, maybe, you never know. Timothy is still a young fighter and still got lots of goals ahead of him and for Manny there’s just one thing, to prove that he’s the best, only one."Tags: Timothy Bradley , Manny Pacquiao , Pacquiao-Bradley Rematch , Pacquiao vs Bradley Rematch
