In June of 2012, WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley won a controversial twelve round split decision over Manny Pacquiao. A rematch is very possible for April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Former unified lightweight champion Nate Campbell, who faced Bradley several years ago, says Pacquiao might really do some damage this time around, with Bradley getting stopped in vicious fashion. Campbell is not convinced that Bradley is fully recovered from January's brutal fight with Ruslan Provodnikov.
"I don't think much of Bradley as a puncher, but he's going to do whatever he can to win. Bradley won't be able to keep Pacquiao off of him. This time around, Pacquiao might hurt Bradley. [Bradley] can't punch. I thought Bradley lost bad [the first time]. If Pacquiao can get in shape like Pacquiao can get in, not only will Pacquiao walk right through Bradley, he can hurt Bradley," Campbell said.
