Bradley's Calf Injury More Serious Than Initially Thought

By Salvador Rodriguez

According to Joel Diaz, trainer of former champion Timothy Bradley, it may take at least 100 days for Bradley to fully heal up his right calf injury. Bradley injured his calf last Saturday night in Las Vegas, suffering a severe sprain during the twelve round unanimous decision loss in his rematch with Manny Pacquiao. Bradley suffered the injury halfway through the fight, according to his trainer.

"Bradley gave the fans the fight they wanted and expected. I think that halfway through the fight he was winning but the injury came and everything changed. The injury came at the most important moment, but either way, we gave a good fight," Diaz said.

One thing is clear. Tim has to literally injure himself just to try to keep up with Pac. He had to fight at 110% just to be even with Pac 3-3 after 6 rounds. Injured calf or not he was…

Let it rest. Let there be no excuses for this fight. Pacquiao won fair and square. I could/was defending the first injury. But this is the second time it's happened and the common denominator is pacquiao. Unless of coarse you…
