Watch Pacquiao vs Bradley live. On June 9th Manny Pacquiao will be defending his WBO crown against Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand inLas Vegas. It is a fight that, for some reason, many people see as a blow out in favor of Pacquiao, and there doesn’t seem that there is much buzz for this fight.
Pacquiao vs Bradley live stream. Before the HBO’s 24/7 segment for Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley even aired, it was dubbed by many to be boring and in no way being able to outshine that of Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto’s segment.
Bradley was portrayed as a hungry fighter who leaves it all in the gym and whose dedication to the sport knows no bounds. He had been boxing for nearly 18 years (this is his professional and amateur career) and had not taken an easy day throughout.
He trains like a work horse, and with the help of his father, he pushes his body to its physical limit with some crazy exercises. In the episode it shows Bradley working some weights, pushing a giant tire with his father on it to work his legs and recounts a story about how Bradley’s father replaced a medicine ball with a rock he found in the desert.
Bradley’s father acted as the motivating force who pushed his son his whole life so that he’d be prepared for any challenge that faced him. He also had a lot of colorful language in the episode that he used to motivate Timothy when training him, which added some humor to the episode.
All in all, this was a great episode and was better than expected. A new fighter was introduced to the 24/7 series that actually brought some interest in the fight. Let’s just hope that it can carry on for three more episodes as the fight is in desperate need of hype if it hopes to even come near Mayweather’s numbers.
The officials have been named for the June 9 fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, with a slightly surprising choice at referee and three veteran judges in place.
The referee will be Robert Byrd, a familiar name to boxing fans but unfamiliar in fights of this level, at least not inNevada. Generally speaking, when Byrd works a world title fight, he travels abroad to do so, as he did a couple of weeks ago when he went to Germany for the Marco Huck vs Ola Afolabi rematch.
As best I can tell, Byrd has never before been the third man in the ring for a fight involving Pacquiao or Bradley. It will be the first time in Manny’s last ten fights in the state ofNevadathat the referee is someone other than Kenny Bayless, Tony Weeks, or Vic Drakulich. Bradley, of course, has fought just once in the state, when he beat Joel Casamayor in November.
As Pacquiao is arguably the most famous boxer in the world (sorry, Floyd) and was recently named the fourth most influential athlete in theU.S.by Forbes Magazine, this isn’t likely to happen anytime soon.
Pacquiao’s camp moved quickly to clarify his remarks. Pacquiao released a statement via his official website stating, “I didn’t say that, that’s a lie… I didn’t know that quote from Leviticus because I haven’t read the Book of Leviticus yet. I’m not against gay people. I have a relative who is also gay. We can’t help it if they were born that way. What I’m critical off [sic] are actions that violate the word of God. I only gave out my opinion that same sex marriage is against the law of God.”
Pacquiao told an interviewer from ABS-CBN News in thePhilippinesthat reporter Ampong “did not even ask me for a verse from the Bible. But if he did I would have given him 1st Corinthians 6:9” which lists down activities including homosexuality that will prevent people from entering theKingdomofGod.”
Pacquiao went on to stress, “I am not angry with gays but I don’t want them to sin against the law of God because homosexual offenders cannot inherit theKingdomofGod. I was talking about same sex marriages.” Manny, this didn’t help you much.
The credentials, skills and toughness are all there. He’s more than willing to make things a bit rough-and-tumble if that’s in his favor. Bradley is also deceptively quick. His handspeed isn’t blazing, but he puts himself in the right position with his footwork, and he showcases strong timing and intuition when unleashing his attack.
If he’s to win this fight, he’ll need to stay behind a constant double jab. Bradley actually has a slight reach advantage, so he should be able to pop his jab off while coming forward to get inside of Pacquiao’s power punches.
That should help him to neutralize Pacquiao’s favorite shot, his lead straight left. Once he’s inside, it’s time to tie him up, hold onto him, keep him out of rhythm, push him off… all of those rough, ugly tactics with which he can excel.
The key will be to get off first and to stay behind the jab at all times. Bradley can’t trade with Pacquiao; he’s not a power puncher, and I think his chin would eventually betray him there. He’d be wise to borrow a page from Marquez and prioritize establishing outside foot position, while perhaps keeping Pacquiao a bit off balance by stepping on his foot for good measure.
“Does he have enough to take Manny out?” pondered Konz:”I don’t know. I don’t think so. Manny is my boss and it doesn’t matter. No, Manny is not underestimating him. As a matter of fact we’ve already started talking about what we are going to do in training camp. But the truth of the matter is that Bradley doesn’t have to win this fight. As long as Bradley goes twelve competitive rounds with Manny his life will change forever. He will be at that next level and be the superstar and maybe take the torch from Manny when Manny retires. And I hope all the best for Bradley. It’s going to be an exciting fight.”
Bradley’s life is not going to change unless people think he does enough to beat Manny Pacquiao, and honestly probably not even then. Did Juan Manuel Marquez become a megastar because he almost beat Pacquiao? Well he’s fighting a no name opponent on independent PPV, what a life-changer! Bradley’s life will change if he beats Pacquiao. Otherwise there will just be excuses from the Pacquiao camp about how he wasn’t at his best. Do you think Bradley’s life will change if he loses to Pacquiao?
Manny Pacquiao will be looking to reassert his dominance of the pound for pound rankings following what can only be described as a controversial victory last time out. In their trilogy fight, Marquez demonstrated an ability neutralise the attack of Pacquiao which resulted in the decision being met with boo’s by the crowd in the MGM. However further analysis of the fight showed Pacquiao landing the cleaner strikes – 176 to 138 and the most power punches.
Timothy Bradley returned to the ring that same night having been out of the ring for nearly 10 months following a dispute with his previous promoter. However he displayed no signs of ring rust as he dismantled a Cuban legend in Joel Casamayor.
Following Amir Khan’s loss to Lamont Peterson, a fighter Bradley had previously beaten, ‘Desert Storms’ position as the world’s number 1 Light Welterweight was confirmed. Now he steps up to Welterweight where Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr have long reigned supreme. Already ranked number8 inthe Ring Magazine pound for pound rankings, a win for Bradley would cement him as one of the world’s elite fighters.
