Thoughts in Manny Pacquiao- Timothy Bradley

By David Rivera  

 Its Fight week and it has come down to it the moment of truth “Pac Man” against “Desert Storm.” Will Manny Pacquiao beat Timothy Bradley this time by knocking him out like he did to Ricky Hatton in the second round of that fight, or will he have to dominate Bradley all 12- rounds just to make sure he sweeps a victory?

 I must say, Pacquiao hasn’t knocked out an opponent since that fight with Hatton. Has he lost his power punch, has age caught up with him, or has the four fights with Juan Manuel Marquez  really took a lot out of him, including getting caught with that punch by Marquez that we all saw floor Pacquiao and the knockout win?

  I must say that was a lucky shot, but I will not bring hate in this blog. I’ll be honest about it. He got caught by a good shot and he did not see it coming. It happens to a lot of fighters, just like it did to Paul Williams in his fight with Sergio Martinez.

Saturday night, form the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on HBO Pay-Per-View I have Pacquiao dominating from the start of the first bell. But I also see Bradley putting up a fight also, after coming off of an amazing fight with the Russian Rocky Provodnikov, which I also believe he lost. that fight.

 if you ask me how much punishment a man has to take, to prove he lost it was a lot closer then what I think, but certain fans believe Bradley got man handled in that fight.His heart is what kept him from not getting knocked out.

 it will be an interesting fight to look forward to. Hopefully Manny gets the knock out he has been looking for in years. I think Pacquiao has it in him, but something tells me that he is going to knock Bradley out, hopefully, but like I said before Bradley has a lot of heart and determination.  For him to say he won eight-rounds to four on Pacquiao, he must be delusional.

If you ask me, the judges did bad scoring on that fight and it was disgraceful. Let’s not have a Marquez and Pacquiao saga again. With Bradley and Pacquiao, it’s just throwing fans money away and nobody is looking for that. Manny needs that knock out and move on with hi self and determine who else is going to be on his list.

Hopefully it is Floyd Mayweather. Good Luck Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley and let the best man win with a proper and clean fight.
