Pacquiao Admits: I'm Concerned About Bradley's Head

By Osman Rodriguez

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs) has watched the tapes and he appears to be worried. For his upcoming fight, the Filipino superstar's main concern is the alleged head butts of Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12KOs).

In some of his past fights, Bradley's opponents have made accusations that he intentionally comes charging in with his head, with several of those opponents suffering bad cuts or facial swelling. Bradley has denied these accusations, but even Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, has expressed the same concern regarding the unbeaten boxer's head use.

"Timothy Bradley is undefeated but I am concerned about the head butts and I have to prepare for that. We have to study [his fights] to see what I'm going to do to keep away from that head butt," Pacquiao said.

The fight takes place on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

OK enough with the headbutt BS. Sure with an orthodox fighter and a southpaw that would happen but why the hell would Bradley headbutt him on purpose and risk a NC or it going to the cards when he probably…
