Bradley Warns: Crawford Can Win, But Pacquiao is NO Postol

By Radio Rahim

Former two division champion Timothy Bradley knows a lot about Manny Pacquiao and Terence Crawford.

Bradley is only one of three fighters to face Pacquiao in the ring on three occasions. He won a controversial decision over Pacquiao in 2012, and the Filipino star dominated the 2014 rematch and then dropped Bradley twice to power himself to victory in April's trilogy fight.

Bradley is very close friends with Crawford (29-0, 22KOs) and used him in training camp.


Bradley was ringside this past Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and watched Crawford dominate Viktor Postol to unify the WBC/WBO junior welterweight titles.

Crawford has been mentioned as a frontrunner to fight Pacquiao on November 5th at Las Vegas' Thomas & Mack Center.

Based on his experience with both fighters, Bradley feels Crawford is more than capable of beating the far more experienced Pacquiao.

"I feel like Crawford can get that job done against anybody. I think he's got too many dimensions to his game. You saw the footwork [against Postol]. That footwork would give anybody problems. Good footwork, great defense, great counter-punching ability, great speed, you saw the change-up. He did some old school stuff in there, just smart stuff. I think he's ready for anybody, including Manny Pacquiao," Bradley told

However, Bradley cautions that Pacquiao will fight in a completely opposite manner to Postol. He won't be gun-shy and he won't waste his time just following Crawford around the ring without throwing punches.

"Manny Pacquiao looked sensational his last time out against myself. He seemed like he was refueled, had a new fire in him and he was just sensational in his last fight, so I would love to see those two guys get in there and duke it out to see who the best is," Bradley said.

"You can't take away that Pacquiao is explosive. He's not going to be like Postol. That's why I want to see the fight. He's not going to sit there and wait and measure, and then never shoot the left hand. Postol just sat and sat and never shot the right hand. And when he shot it, Terence had a counter for him. He was afraid to throw it. But Manny is quick, lightening fast, explosive and he's going to let it go. Manny is going to let it go."
