What more is left to say about the legendary Manny Pacquiao. Last night’s fight against Timothy Bradley showed Manny’s ability not to be reckless, but patient and calculating. Manny’s timing seemed to be a little off, but he went for it on several occasions. At one point throwing and landing 10 or more punches. The speed was there as were Manny’s tremendous legs. He often moved and had Timothy swinging at air. There were many fantastic toe to toe exchanges, and Bradley connected solidly early in the fight even staggering Manny, but Manny would not let this fight get away from him. This was his moment to get redemption for the tragic unfair loss that he had unjustly received by a bunch of inept boxing judges. This was Manny’s opportunity to show the doubters in the boxing world that his time was not yet over as he had stated. There were times when Manny seemed a bit off with his punches. His timing and accuracy were also a little off, but he kept fighting and landing many clean and effective punches on a more difficult Timothy Bradley. Bradley was more confident, used excellent defense, and tried pushing the pace early as he threw many hard shots to Manny’s head and body. Both warriors let their best punches go. Manny Pacquiao at age 35 put it all together in the final rounds and brought the fans to their feet. Was this the best Manny Pacquiao we’ve seen, probably not. Was he over trained or just simply showing signs of father time catching up. Regardless, now is the time to give Manny Pacquiao his just due. This warrior has given boxing fans some of the greatest fights in boxing history. At times it was difficult to see who was fighting harder, Manny Pacquiao or his mother Dionesia. This lady was picking up the pace as each round ended. She used every ounce of energy as she tried willing her son to victory. This was a very touching moment as we saw mother and son both trying to bring home a victory. On the other side was Timothy Bradley. A courageous fighter with a desire to win that would not quit until it was over. Timothy is a classy young man that also deserves a lot of credit. He redeemed himself by sharing his honest thoughts on the winner. He gave all that he had, and admitted it wasn’t good enough on this night. He gained a lot of fans. Where does Manny go from here? I’m not sure. Marquez? Provodnikov? Garcia? Porter? Who knows. What we do know is that Floyd Mayweather will not be next. He will forever be remembered as the fighter that robbed fight fans of a Mega Fight. Only he knows the real answers. Manny Pacquiao has fought the best of his time and beaten them all. It’s time for all fans to recognize this fierce warrior. He’s gone through tough times inside and outside the boxing ring, and he’s always come out on top. Manny Pacquiao accomplished his mission on April 12th. He now has to decide what he does from here. Both Jinkee and Manny’s high spirited want him to retire. I hope he makes the right choice himself and his family. Manny will one day be missed by everyone, trust me on this. Manny is the best!Posted April 14, 2014 1:23 am
I was at work ,didn’t see the fight does anyone have any video footagePosted April 13, 2014 9:05 pm
Gentlemen let us be honest, I went into this bout believing Pacquiao would win, but lets give credit where it is due, Timothy Bradley fought Manny with fire and brimstone. Let us remember Bradley is not a knockout artist yet he went out there and absorbed punishment. Manny did well, but I will tell you this Bradley will be kicking a lot of people’s butts in his return. He lost but he definitely has my respect and let us be fair and objective. Well done to Manny he took care of business and never stopped his assault.Posted April 13, 2014 7:53 am

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!Posted April 13, 2014 2:09 am
Pac fought a smart fight tonight, he won and it wasn’t even close, he also won the first fight.
Void will continue to run from Pac, Void also refuses to fight Golovkin at 154, Martinez at 154 or even 150……………..Void is void……………..he could not even knock out the woman he beat up………….Posted April 13, 2014 2:05 am
Please keep Manny away and I mean far far away from Floyd. Please Pac retire now on high.Posted April 13, 2014 1:24 am
