Former two division world champion Timothy Bradley has warned Chris Algieri that he needs to use constant movement if he wants to stand any chance of defeating WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao on November 22nd in Macau, China.
If Algieri stays in one place for too long, then Bradley expects a very brutal outcome in the champion's favor.
Bradley faced Pacquiao twice and they split the results. A controversial split decision in the first meeting in 2012 gave Bradley the victory, with the eight division champion getting revenge earlier this year with a dominating twelve round unanimous decision.
"Algieri showed in the Ruslan fight that he can make adjustments. He stood there and he got hit, got dropped, got back up and then he figured it out, 'Ok I gotta move on this guy.' He did that and he ended up winning the fight against Ruslan Provodnikov. This guy can definitely make adjustments, he definitely has a height and reach advantage going for him in this fight," Bradley said to On The Ropes Boxing Radio .
"We all know that movement frustrates Manny Pacquiao. If he stands there, he’s gonna get obliterated. If he moves on Manny Pacquiao and makes Pacquiao pick up his feet and chase him around, then he has a better chance of winning the fight."
