TARK

Boxtra throws a bunch of predictions out there and claims the one that’s correct… The wrong ones? He says, “Those were my disciples.”

This time he predicted a KO win for both fighters and was wrong twice.

Manny Pacquiao once again puts on one of the most brilliant boxing displays in the history of boxing. No he didn’t get the stoppage as I thought he would, but it was incredible to see him live. The MGM Grand was the most exciting venue I have ever seen. Cheers of “Manny “Manny” “Manny” was electrifying. I am nearly deaf due to the volume of fans cheering, yelling and screaming at every single punch Manny Pacquiao landed. This was a tough fight that had its ebbs and flows, and Bradley started off well, but Manny as great fighters do began to change things up and masterfully pick Bradley apart. Manny Pacquiao seemed to me a little over trained and his timing was off a bit, but he fought a great fight as usual and took back the the welterweight title and the P4P Boxing King title tonight. He will be even better in his next fight. I attended an after party for an hour and had to go get some sleep due to the high emotions, excitement and the joy of seeing the living legend display his boxing skills that will never come this way again once he’s gone. The speed, movement, fighting heart, mastery of the ring had me and the entire MGM crowd in awe. A fighter shouldn’t be able to do the things Manny Pacquiao does inside a ring. He’s a chess master, a Gretzky, a Willie Mays. Manny Pacquiao solidified himself as the greatest fighter of all time and the greatest athlete of all time. I wanted to chisel out a piece of the MGM Grand to commemorate this artist. I ran into Roy Jones Jr, Terrence Crawford, Chavez and many more athletes like Charles Barkley. Manny Pacquiao brought home the title and gave everyone in the world a reason to smile and celebrate. What a victory, what a victory, what a victory. Manny Pacquiao gave me a Birthday present that I will never forget. I was in the presence of greatness. You will never see another 8 division boxing champion again. Manny’s mother was a blessing to see. She loves her son to no ends and watched and prayed for her loving son. This brought tears to my eyes. And then to see her hug Timothy Bradley like she did is as touching as you will ever see. Jinkee must be smiling with true joy to to her wonderful husband win back and bring home to his wife, family and his people another championship. Boxing is Manny Pacquiao. The world will never be the same once the PEOPLE’S Champion leaves this wonderful sport. This is the sport that the poor can relate to the best. Struggles, mental toughness, hope for the future, survival, instinct, going another step when you don’t think you can, fighting until the end. This is boxing, and that’s why so many people love Manny Pacquiao. What we witnessed today is the most loved, treasured and admired athlete of all times come back after all the tough times he’s endured in the last few years. He could have retired for good, but he didn’t. He could have lost faith, but he didn’t. He could have blamed everyone for his tough times, but he didn’t. What he did was trust God and not let go of his faith. The road tonight was not an easy one to take. There was pain, uncertainty and some rough goings, but Manny kept his faith and fought his way to a victory for those people that need it most in life. Manny carried all of us on his shoulders tonight, and he did not let us down. People, it’s time you give Manny Pacquiao his credit even if you don’t like him. He’s a wonderful person, true champion and a man that loves God. Trust me on this. Manny is the best!

Bradley has a bad habbit of throwing punches with his chin straight up In the air behind his punches.
What did prov do? He just threw a right hook over Bradley jab , and a left hook over Bradley right.
Bingo. Each and everytime, try ducking Tim. Your chinny ching Ching it’s going to be bong and bong tonight then you can do the long legged wobbling dance we love fans love to see.tim is extraordinary in saves, those long wobbly giraffe legs must has a gyroscope somewhere.

This shouldve been on HBO. If you can’t come up with a better undercard than this. I’d rather watch a tennis match and the the main event than this BS. The most boring ppv in history.

Regardless of who wins I hope it’s not controversial!!!! I don’t want to pay another recycled fight! Manny needs to fight other opponents outside TOP RANK stable!

iron mike: you arent thinking it through…its not the years, its the miles. Pac turned pro at 16 years old and has had to lean the hard way, on the job, not in the gym. so Mayweather should be far fresher, with only a couple hard fights under his belt and an easier time with the amateurs, then pro, beginning with easy fights and working his way up. Pac didnt get the easy fights or the amateur years..

Boxtradamus

Pacquiao will WIN by Highway ROBBERY just as I predicted!! And I will celebrate with a Victory TOAST to another CORRECT prediction!! Should be FUN competitive Fight though. This is 2 Top 10 P4Pers. Doesn’t get MUCH better than that.

Golden boy/mayweather + top rank = no fight, plus now with conflicting networks, HBO vs showtime. I wish mayweather would fight the winner of this fight, he should, but it won’t happen

Posted April 12, 2014 7:54 pm 


Iron Mike

Bears – you know mayweather is 2 years older than PAC right? That ducking a “peak” PAC, doesn’t hold much merit when Floyd will not be at his “peak” either

So we know floyd has duck’ed a peak pacman and made a 1001 excuses but why has the fruad not faced bradley?

Probably same reason he did not fight paul williams, margarito, martinez, winky wright, etc. But I just wondered what the peanut gallery thought??

Manny all day. Cream rises to the top. To quote the great man [ my time is not done yet ]

I think Pac is gonna beat the breaks off Bradley, that being said, I also think Bradley has a really big heart and gives his all in the ring like a true warrior. Good luck to both fighters.

Posted April 12, 2014 6:43 pm

Manny needs to leave TOP RANK after this fight! He needs to fight GBP and hopefully Mayweather. Arum seems to be to greedy just having Pac fight in house fighter. It gets old with this recycled fights! Last one Pacman !

Posted April 12, 2014 6:09 pm 


Havoc

If Pacman wins on a decision then thier is nothing new. He beat Bradley on score card the first time so now Manny has to KO Bradley to give everybody something to talk about! I’m expecting a KO!

No jinkee, she is pregnant and staying home.

if pacman wins i would like to see him leave roach and go train with the calzaghes. roach has taken him has far as he can go but pac with great speed in hand and foot has never truly mastered the angles of a southpaw in the way joe calzaghe did. if he did he would be truly unbeatable

Da Unknown Comic, Well, I will bring forth the rest of the series as long as you promise to read it.

Great point Mike, Tim is talented but I simply do not see him bothering Manny and on that note, Manny has multiple ways to hurt Tim.

I am a Mayweather fan too, and I darn well wish he would just get onto it and fight Pacman, I have no doubt what the outcome would be, I still have a hope that we will see them go at it.

what really annoys me about this fight (and im a floyd fan and not a fan of pacman) is that if bradley wins floyd will be calling pacman a bum e.t.c. when he never had the nads to get in the ring with pacquiao and let someone else do his dirty work for him. but if bradley does win i think he should go P4P no1. as he would have beat that russian dude, marquez and pacman in consecutive fights and has fought and beaten better fighters as of late than floyd and ward.

Posted April 12, 2014 5:02 pm 


Mike

It’s fair to say this fight could go either way, although I think Bradley has been oversold. The version of Pac that destroyed Hatton would of ruined Bradley. Bradley is getting this at the right time, unless PAC has a few more miles of tread on his tires tonight.

Part 1 of 4? You do realize this is fight day right? Or is part 2 gonna be the outcome, followed by part 3 that will compare the 2 fights, followed by part 4 that asks where does each guy go from here?
