“Tark – how does Manny become no.1 contender for WW title by beating a LW who lost to Alvarado?”

The “genius” multi-posting, nick stealing Happyboy displays his stupidity once again. Rios and Alvarado fought each other twice at light welterweight. Besides that, Rios also beat Alvarado by TKO. REMEMBER, wonderful boy?

Titopa my friend, boxers like Mayweather schooled him, Chris John schooled him, Bradley boxed him and schooled him. Manny is a boxer puncher but wants to fight you 99% of the time. If he wanted to box, he would have ran circles around Marquez as he did against Rios. Marquez is horrible and can’t catch up to anyone with movement. He’s always off balance. Manny would have shut him out 12 rounds to zero had he wanted to do things the easy way.

@ Rich – I agree with Moonshine that styles make fights. Yes, Bradley beat JMM without controversy involved. He fought the wrong fight against TB. Will they rematch, who knows? Can JMM adjust in a rematch and win? Absolutely! TB has his weaknesses as well. JMM is savvy and experienced enough to exploit those flaws.

Regardless of Pac’s many knockdowns of JMM, you know who got the historical and significant KO. What do those knockdowns say of JMM? The man is a warrior and true champ. He believed in himself and knew he would eventually settle the score. No 5th fight needed. Rivalry done.

te tumbo.., A shuffle of ranked fighters doesn’t alter the basic landscape… Champion on top… Contenders underneath. He can basically fight any contender, and often he fights somebody who’s NOT a contender.

Lots of title challengers lost their previous fight. Lots of number one contenders wait for years to get fights. Pacquiao was the top contender for Floyd’s WW title before Floyd put his, “you choose” poll before the fans.

correction: now, win or lose, Pacquiao* was either irrelevant to the welter rankings or the rankings were fundamentally altered by the fact that Marquez assumed Pacquaio’s* spot in the pecking order, e.g., Marquez became the logical choice to face Bradley NOT Pacquiao*.

Posted April 10, 2014 4:38 pm

TARK, Marquez’s DEVASTATING KO of Pacquiao* postponed the Bradley rematch for at least an entire year and a potential bout v. Mayweather indefinitely if not forever. you seem to forget that Marquez was supposed to be a set-up for Pacquiao*(?). a Pacquiao* win was supposed to provide the favorable negotiating platform for Team Pacquiao* to confirm immediate bouts v. one or both undefeated welterweight champions. in fact, if it was Pacquiao* who planted Marquez butts-up and face-first into the ring canvas at least Bradley would’ve already happened and today we could very well be posting about the imminent PPV showdown between Mayweather and Bradley or Pacquiao*. instead, the Marquez KO put Pacquiao* out of commission for a year during which many wondered if he would ever be able to return resulting in Pacquiao* being erased from everybody’s top-10 lists. now, either Pacquiao* was irrelevant to the rankings or the rankings were completely altered by the fact that Marquez assumed Pacquaio’s* spot on those same rankings. which is it?

te tumbo…, “Marquez erased Pacquiao* from P4P lists and eliminated him from competing for an entire year.”

That didn’t change the basic landscape… and being idle for a year does nothing to change the landscape.

Marquez-Pacquiao IV wasn’t a title fight so it didn’t change the landscape a little bit… Marquez lost his title shot at Bradley so that didn’t change the landscape either…

If Pacquiao beats Bradley that WILL change the landscape… Pac will have another world title to add to his trophy case… and he’ll finally get a title shot at Mayweather — maybe.

“Pacquiao-Marquez IV did virtually nothing to alter Boxing’s landscape”(?!?). TARK, you’re essentially claiming that Pacquiao* was irrelevant to the welter rankings and that even a win v. Marquez would’ve resulted in a matchup v. Rios an entire year later(?). otherwise, Marquez erased Pacquiao* from P4P lists and eliminated him from competing for an entire year. Marquez (NOT Pacquiao*) then proceeded to a showdown v. the undefeated Bradley and an opportunity to claim another title. ONLY because Marquez FLATTENED Manny* was the undefeated Bradley obliged to face Marquez while Pacquiao* convalesced far away from any pro-boxing ring. ONLY because the 40-something feather Marquez KTFO of Manny* is he able to insist on campaigning(?!?) among prime and natural 147lbrs. I Disagree: Marquez’s upset KO of Pacquiao* completely altered the rankings and matchmaking decisions to this day.

te tumbo on Pacquiao-Marquez II…, “despite Marquez CLEARLY Outboxing and Punishing Pacquiao* for 7–8/12 rounds. the “official” scorecards were never going to favor Marquez no matter what.”

That was the weirdest scoring for the 4 fights… It seemed like Jerry Roth and Duane Ford had enough cushion in their scores — that even if Marquez had a massive 12th round Pacquiao was going to win it for certain..

Posted April 10, 2014 3:35 pm 


TARK

te tumbo.., Pacquiao-Marquez IV did virtually nothing to alter Boxing’s landscape. NOTHING!!! It was a non-title fight. Pacquiao still makes much more per fight than Marquez — and is the worldwide FAN FAVORITE to be matched with Floyd Mayweather Jr. So nothing changed.

Tim Bradley.., “That was an awesome KO over Pacquiao man. If I were Marquez I’d retire on that great fight. Nothing Marquez can possibly do will ever be that great or duplicate that victory man.

That was time for him to retire. Go out on top. Everything Marquez does from here on in will only be disappointing and point him down hill.. like his fight with me.. He can’t beat a young man like me no possilbe way … Impossible.

Greatness inside the boxing ring comes to a fighter that is special. The great fighter does things that others can’t quite duplicate. He does things effortlessly and without having to think. The attributes he possesses (power, speed, athleticism, movement) are gifts he was born with. Manny Pacquiao is a great fighter that does things that leave boxing fans in awe. He can punch with the power of an earthquake. He has hand speed that rivals that of a striking cobra. He has the graceful foot movement of the great football player, Barry Sanders comes to mind. And he has the aura of invincibility that gives him the chance to beat anyone at any time. Manny Pacquiao will grace us with his presence on April 12th in Las Vegas. He has returned to take back a title that was unjustly stolen from him by Timothy Bradley with the assistance of the ring judges. The boxing world is once again alive, filled with anticipation and excitement to see greatness in the ring. Manny Pacquiao will bring in the movie stars, professional athletes, musicians and world leaders to the fight. Any Pacquiao fight bests the World Series, NBA Finals, Stanley Cup or the World Cup. The magnitude of excitement reaches all four corners of the world. Those fortunate fans that come to Las Vegas get a double treat as Manny will likely perform his celebrated hit song like “Sometimes When We Touch.” Manny is a boxer, singer, actor, but more importantly an entertainer that aims to please fans, which he consistently does. There will be no more Manny Pacquiao’s once this legendary fighting machine retires for the squared circle. Manny has fought the best of his time and beaten them all. He is respected and admired by all of his boxing peers. Fans enjoy watching his fights because they know there is action, excitement and they are watching the ONLY 8 division boxing champion in history. This by itself classifies him as the best ever. If only one man can reach the top of mountain, every other man falls short. Manny Pacquiao is the only man to reach a little higher than all the rest. Is he the greatest ever? Quite possibly, but I will not become a braggart and tarnish any part of Manny Pacquiao. I will say that he is arguably the best of all time, and leave it at that. Manny Pacquiao is without a doubt one of the most influential people ever. He reaches people of all walks of life. Manny Pacquiao is quite unique as he personifies greatness inside and outside the ring. The pugilist and the person are both one in spirit. This is a special man that encompasses greatness. Trust me on this. Manny is one of a kind. Manny’s the best!

@StraightRight Marquez got the KO in their 4th fight, but up to that point, Manny was the one who had shown the power in their rivalry. JMM was knocked down heavily in the round he was down 3 times in, flat on his back and arms outstretched at one stage. It could easily have been him taking a nap! :) Pacman and JMM meetings are nip-and-tuck affairs, JMM being world-class himself, and to pretend otherwise is disingenous…

AUZBOX, i will directly challenge you once again to back up what you say with Documented Boxing Facts: identify the 5 rounds you scored for Pacquiao* in their first bout? you do know that even with a 10-6 first round across the board, Pacquiao* would still have to prevail in four additional rounds to win on the scorecards. considering that he scored no additional KDs and was also not penalized a point by the negligent ref for blatantly striking Marquez after the third KD in the first round. otherwise, i scored three rounds for Pacquiao* and one even. resulting in eight rounds for Marquez who Busted Pacquiao* Up Good and Plenty for the remaining 11 rounds of their fight.

Manny Pacquiao is just days away from putting on his best performance in the squared circle since he came on the scene. There’s no fight like a Pacquiao fight. This is more than just an event, it’s more like the Presidential race, The World Series, The Super Bowl and man landing on the moon. In the future, us boxing fans need to write congress and request a national holiday for Manny Pacquiao. He brings happiness to all of us. The killer instinct is never a question for the greatest pure fighter in the history of boxing. Never ever question this man’s courage, skill or killer instinct. You don’t EVER what to get personal with this warrior or you will pay dearly as Timothy Bradley is going to find out. Manny’s has finally arrived in Las Vegas, and the city is on fire. There’s excitement at every corner of the sin city, but the angelic Manny Pacquiao has brought it peace and love. Set your DVR’s, purchase your VHS tapes and clean your recording equipment because this is going to be historic. You have all witnessed Manny vs Morales, Manny vs Hatton, Manny vs Barrera, Manny vs Marquez, Manny vs De La Hoya and Manny vs Margarito. All historic, exciting, fights that will be remembered for ages to come. Timothy Bradley vs Manny Pacquiao 2 will surpass all of them if that’s even possible. You’ll see the brutalizing straight left hand, the crushing right hook, the incredible feints, the dazzling foot work, the cobra like in and out movement, the heart of a lion, the destruction of Timothy Bradley. I recall what Adrian said to Rocky at one point in the Rocky series movies. She looked at him before taking on Clubber Lang and said “You can’t win.” Timothy Bradley has been hearing this from everyone. And everyone is right. No matter what he does, he can’t win. Manny will stop him before the 4th round or no later than the 9th. The greatest fighter in boxing history reclaims his throne. Trust me, Manny wins in exciting and stunning fashion. Manny is the best!

first of all, Pacquiao* “granted” only ONE rematch to Marquez. otherwise, four-year intervals between bouts at different weight-classes are no longer rematches between the same fighters. also, the final rematch was a result of Marquez’s unofficial win in III and Team Pacquiao’s* transparent contempt for the “older”, “slower”, and “smaller” Marquez as evidence by their dismissive KO predictions and promises of “answering all the questions and removing any doubt”. of course, Marquez’s rivalry-ending KO was not the convincing answer that Team Pacquiao* was counting on. that’s too bad . . . for Team Pacquiao*.

Pacquiao* rivalry-ending KO. not to mention the odds, the age difference, the range of weight-classes, and opponents that preceded it. bottomline, it was historical, which exceeds the sheer brutality of lower-profile KOs, e.g., Peters’ KO of Jeremy Williams did nothing to alter the rankings or boxing’s landscape, which is why it’s never mentioned when talking about truly historical and memorable KOs for which Marquez v.

I also think Pacquiao learned a lot from that fight, including that he needed to make his right hand a true weapon, which it now is. Tim Bradley is not at the level of Morales.

Largo on Pac-Marq IV.., “THIS KO HAS NO EQUAL N THE ANNALS OF THE SPORT.”

Foster-Quarry… Weaver-Tate… Martinez-Williams… Richardson-Mildenberger… Johansson-Richardson… Patterson-Johansson are a few of the higher profile KO’s I’ve also seen where you could count to a thousand over an iced fighter. I’ve seen about a hundred lower profile endings like this with names you’d never recognize.

Marquez scored a spectacular KO over Pacquiao, no doubt about it. But it’s been done before in the annals of Boxing … many times.

I’ve seen many of these “count to a thousand” KOs. But if they have to carry you out of a stretcher it’s worse — and I’ve seen maybe 20 of those. You could get knocked out for an hour or three … that’s bad news and your career is probably over.

It all depends on the ref.for how the fight will go on because I guarantee you Bradley will bend his head very low ( even at PAC’s knees at times in the first fight) and if ref . Dosent warn Bradley about that the fight will be a repeat from the first one and PAC critics will say ” PAC only fought for 30 sec” a round which was true but not because PAC didn’t try but because Bradley after first few rounds he realized he can’t fight from the outside and was getting hurt so he started going in with his head low and holding non stop trying to survive without being stopped who got rewarded with a win by clueless judges so don’t expect Bradley to Change his strategy!
I hope we will get a good ref !

Eman sr. , I have seen a lot worse decisions in boxing then the first Paquiao/Bradley fight. you are also correct that Bradley may be able to win by decision? however I am of the opinion that it will be harder for Bradley to win a decision the 2nd time around. I may change my mind , but right now I would favor Manny if it comes down to the score cards however I would lean slightly in favor of Bradley if the fight were to end in a tko. mainly because Paquiao has been knocked out before where as Bradley has never been stopped even though Provodnikov came close. I think this bout will be decided by the 3 judges and not by a k.o.

“if PAC gets off first, Bradley WILL fight right back”, which is the primary concern favoring a Pacquiao* win. Bradley is gonna have to contain and harness that warrior-spirit and fight very smart. carelessness, confidence, courage all play into Pacquiao’s* strength, which are explosive chin-cheks and wake-up calls in the form of his power-Left. Morales was able to do it v. Pacquiao* in their first fight and he had his ears pinned-back for that fight. i’ve rarely, if ever, seen Morales more fiercely-determined to kick somebody’s butt. not even his bouts v. Barrera match the intentional ferocity of his win over Pacquiao*. Btw, Morales also experienced consistent if not monotonous success with the right-hand. i even suspect that he switched southpaw in the final round because his right-hand became tired after which he Still continued to land the right-hand(?!).

Largo, I’m not debating your theory. In fact, I tend to agree, that was a once in a lifetime moment and, for me, Bradley doesn’t have the pin point accuracy of Marquez, or the power to repeat it. What he does have is the warrior spirit and, if PAC gets off first, Bradley WILL fight right back, which will give Manny the chance to land a big shot. But Manny better watch out for that head, even when doing the mitts on 24/7 you can see Bradley diving in with his head, that doesn’t look like a mistake, somehow.

@Pugfan : “Bradley is the one who will need to knock out Paquiao if the judges try to over compensate for the bogus decision in their first bout.”

Maybe, just maybe. Bradley can outbox Pac to win a UD.

But the first fight was not as one-sided as Lampley’s calls portrayed. Bradley didn’t do enough offense to really tilt it to his favor. But Pac hit a lot of air too, he was just more active. If they called it a draw there could have been less furor.

for all of this talk about Paquiao’s pure boxing ability , or the lack there of by some. you would think that Bradley was some type of master boxer like Roy Jones or Ray Leonard in their prime. Bradley is more a fighter then a pure boxer. his skill level when it comes to pure boxing is no greater then Paquiao’s in my humble opinion. Bradley certainly was no master boxer in their first bout. also there is much talk of Paquiao not knocking anyone out since his bout with Cotto. in actuality Bradley is the one who will need to knock out Paquiao if the judges try to over compensate for the bogus decision in thier first bout.

In the Rios fight, Manny was not hit with any significant blow, so his punch-resistance was not tested; Bradley will connect with some solid shots, make no mistakes about it, & I do believe Pac will be hurt & taken out…that Marquez KO was just too brutal for Pac not to have lingering effects…Tim by stoppage.

Posted April 8, 2014 5:30 pm

Lmao!! How paqiao was not tested against rios? He fought him for 12 rounds right? Lol … I remember a lot were saying before rios fight the same thing ” PAC can’t take a punch ”

If you get him like PAC got caught against Marquez everyone goes down , it was a perfect punch with PAC ‘ body inertia forward which doubled the punch capacity , but it dosent mean that suddenly PAC can’t take a punch anymore , from a ko like that
The only concern for a boxer is his mental state and his heart( courage)
And in PAC’s case we already saw his courage and mental state is the same and is hungrier then ever to get back to the top!

Cotto while dehydrated was the only good fighter Manny beat and Cotto was coming off a huge lost that almost killed him. Manny cannot beat no guys in his own weight class. Marquez continues to give him the blues and he got KTFO, Bradley he couldn’t dominate much less put away and Rios stood right in from of him like a gift and he couldn’t finish him Manny at this point is a wash. He never had a killer instinct just cherry picked fighters by Roach the joke…

Why you keep talking as if we know how Pacquiao will take a hard blow after such a KO? IS there a precedent to this kind of KO? I DON’T THINK THERE IS BECAUSE THIS KO HAS NO EQUAL N THE ANNALS OF THE SPORT. How do you know how Pac has been affected if we don’t have any equal KO to guide us? Rios didn’t reach his chin with anything hard so we don’t know…why you guys keep posting as if you know???? Any doctor will tell us that the brain will respond, more likely, in a similar way to protect the subject from any serious damage & in the face of any solid hard shot, the automatic response is to take a nap to avoid more hard shots…how you guys know that won’t be the case???? how do you know if there’s no precedent to this UNIQUE CASE???? HOW THE HELL YOU KNOW & KEEP POSTING AS IF YOU KNOW???

Nobody is trying to make a master boxer out of Pacquiao.. He’s a damned good boxer and a great fighter.. He was good enough to run the table on 31-1 Rios … who is bigger and taller than Manny.

Bradley is a damned good boxer and a good fighter. He’ll do well. He just has a bigger hill to climb to beat a guy of Pacquiao’s caliber. His fight against Marquez showed he can control a fight and outscore a great fighter who’s 40 years old.

I suppose he feels he’s fighting another old guy. Pacquiao is only 35. He’s talking about a man who has massive knowledge and experience over 9 weight divisions. This is going to be one of the hardest contested fights of all time.

I’m not for sure it will be a FOTY candidate.. but for sheer activity and effort expended by the combatants … it’s going to be grueling.

Pacquiao* attempting to outbox Bradley will result in 8/12 rounds for Bradley and a UD win. Pacquiao* lacks the skills, smarts, and versatility to prevail with that style and the KO loss to Marquez didn’t make Manny* any smarter. Pacquiao* has only ever done one thing very well: he’s a very quick and hard Puncher. otherwise, he lunges, misses, and eventually just stops, sways, and stares waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. it’s the type of fight-plan that an expert boxer-puncher can easily exploit. it’s what I expect Bradley to do for the UD.

That could lead to a defeat.

But Pacman’s been a professional boxer for so long — I don’t see him getting stupid in this massively important fight.

Pac has seen the Bradley-Marquez fight… He knows this isn’t the same Bradley he fought last time. He knows damned well he has to be ready, and has to be sharp for 12-rounds. If he tried to knock Bradley out that would be stupid … and he’s not.

Gonzo the Dragonborn

Swans are birds of the family Anatidae within the genus Cygnus. The swans’ close relatives include the geese and ducks. Swans are grouped with the closely related geese in the subfamily Anserinae where they form the tribe Cygnini. Sometimes, they are considered a distinct subfamily, Cygninae. There are six or seven species of swan in the genus Cygnus; in addition there is another species known as the Coscoroba Swan, although this species is no longer considered one of the true swans. Swans usually mate for life, though ‘divorce’ does sometimes occur, particularly following nesting failure. And if a mate dies, or is killed by a predator, the remaining mate will take up with another; however, if all goes well in the pairing, they indeed will stay together “for life.” The number of eggs in each clutch ranges from three to eight.

The swans are the largest members of the waterfowl family Anatidae, and are among the largest flying birds. The largest species, including the mute swan, trumpeter swan, and whooper swan, can reach a length of over 1.5 m (60 inches) and weigh over 15 kg (33 pounds). Their wingspans can be almost 3 m (10 ft). Compared to the closely related geese, they are much larger and have proportionally larger feet and necks.

Adults also have a patch of unfeathered skin between the eyes and bill. The sexes are alike in plumage, but males are generally bigger and heavier than females.
The Northern Hemisphere species of swan have pure white plumage but the Southern Hemisphere species are mixed black and white. The Australian Black Swan (Cygnus atratus) is completely black except for the white flight feathers on its wings; the chicks of black swans are light grey. The South American Black-necked Swan has a white body with a black neck.

The legs of swans are normally a dark blackish grey colour, except for the two South American species, which have pink legs. Bill colour varies: the four subarctic species have black bills with varying amounts of yellow, and all the others are patterned red and black. Although most birds generally do not have teeth, swans are known to be an exception to this, having small jagged ‘teeth’ as part of their beaks used for catching and eating fish. The Mute Swan and Black-necked Swan have a lump at the base of the bill on the upper mandible.

really , then why did most people think Paquiao was robbed so badly in the first fight? because Bradley out boxed Manny , and used awesome defense?

Pacquiao doesn’t have to worry about any killer instinct…

He’s not smashing bantamweights anymore — a weight where Pac was tall, skinny, and rangy … and taking out people like Lebada.. Now, being very short and stubby at 147.

Pac can’t really take people TFO anymore.. He just beats the crap out of them. He’s fast and skillful enough to fight a little guy’s fight. In and out.. zig, zag, zip.. throw a flurry and you’re gone before Rios can get a punch off.. Bradley is a lot more skillful than Rios — just not as skillful as Pacquiao.

What I would tell Pacman is to fight Bradley like he did Rios. Box his ass off.. Box, box, box, box, box, and keep boxing.. Just focus on defending exceptionally well … and being busier than ever before for 12 full rounds.

What I would tell Bradley is to do exactly what he’s been doing.

Verbally taunt Pacman by telling him he’s lost his fire, mojo, and killer instinct.. Tell Pac he can’t hit hard enough to fight in the welterweight division.. Tell Pac he couldn’t break popcorn with his shots.. Get him angry – get him throwing.

It worked for Joey Maxim versus Sugar Ray Robinson. Robbie punched himself out and couldn’t finish.

there is nothing wrong with Pacquiao’s* killer-instinct. that’s just a red-herring to avoid discussing the skills disparity that prevents Pacquiao* from effectively prying open an elite opponent’s expert defense. going for the “kill” results in the #1 KO in Boxing History featuring Pacquiao* planted face-first into the ring-canvas. the alternative is a virtually-paralyzed Pacquiao* staring and swaying and waiting to pounce on an opponent’s mistakes, which are simply fewer, far between, and at a level that Pacquiao* struggles to exploit. he’s a Puncher NOT a boxer and it shows whenever Pacquiao* is compelled to figure out an elite opponent’s expert defense.

The way Bradley keep trying to get manny to be a killer, they is a reason. It might be Bradley is going to be a counter puncher, trying to mimick Marquez , I know PAC acting to be a charging killer. But really he be boxing till Bradley rip and readily to fall.
But if Bradley is waiting for the counter punch right hand lead, the problem with this is if you miss you leave your self crossed and PAC can nail you with no defense.

Bradley is open for right hand lead or right mix in as he dropped that left regarlly prov was nailing Bradley with rights. May the better boxer win. Or will this turn into a slug fest as both get carried away.LOL

if Manny was able to take off parts of the rounds and not fight for the entire 3 minutes of a round like he has been accused of in their first bout and still out box Bradley like most people believe was the case? then what will this bout look like if Paquiao goes all out?

Thats why im buying this ppv, manny has given me some of the best times of my life and he deserves every cent before he retires, although the under cards will suck watching mannys final fights before he says goodbye or watching another highlight reel ala marquez i dont want to miss.

Paquiao will out box Bradley again , although it may be closer this time.

even though Paquiao was not given the decision in his first fight with Bradley , he actually had a much easier time with Bradley then Maquez had with Bradley in my opinion. not sure what that may mean in the rematch?

Get ready boxing fans, Manny Pacquiao’s Grand Arrival is slated for today at the MGM Grand. Manny Mania is alive and well, and Las Vegas adopted son is arriving to clean up Sin City. Mayweather’s own town transforms into Manny Pacquiao land. The iconic legend brings in fans from all over the world. The stars are out, world leaders and dignitaries all come out to see arguably the greatest fighter of all time. The only 8 time division boxing champion ever. Manny Pacquiao is coming, and half the world is coming along with him. The blazing hand speed, the graceful, and artistic movement and the destructive power will all be present when Manny Pacquiao steps into that boxing ring on Saturday night. My bags are packed, my Manny Pacquiao attire is neatly pressed, and we’re set to go. Boxing needs Manny Pacquiao more than fish need water. Opening Day for Major League Baseball is dwarfed by the news of Manny Pacquiao arriving in Las Vegas. Imagine Manny coming out to ring in his patented colors of his homeland, the beautiful head band, the bounce in his legs and the million dollar smile as the house erupts with passion and emotions. The crowd cheering “Manny, Manny, Manny, Manny, Manny, Manny”. And I will be the one fan in the crowd leading that chant. Never again will there be this kind of excitement in any event. You will have missed a part of life if you’re not glued to your tv set or at the live event. Manny Pacquiao is making his triumphant return to glory. He will turn back the hands of time and begin his second reign as P4P King of the ring. Don’t blink because something special will happen before round 4 or no later than round 9. Trust me on this, Manny Pacquiao is simply the best ever. That was hard to say because that encompasses a lot of great fighters, but Manny is the best!

bradley is not the punching bag that is rios, hes proven he can not only box but brawl and has the ablity to adapt in that ring.i see this as a close fight and will be shocked if one is dominate or if we see a k.o…i have paqiou on points based on activity but would really love to see tim put a little more leverage on his punches and sit on them for this fight, due to what happened in the pac and marquez fight in sure there has to be some doubt in paqious head.

Eman Sr. – his killer instinct is what got him KO’d in the Marquez fight. He was going for the KO in that fight….its part of the reason why he got caught.

“Eman Sr.” You’re so pathetic IMBECILE!!! Go get a life!!! If you have just a little bit common sense left in you, why don’t you put all your money where your mouth is so you will retire comfortably…
