Pacquiao Proves He is Better Than Bradley


Despite all his boxing skills, his new trainer, and his 24 rounds of in ring experience with Manny Pacquiao, Timothy Bradley still came up short. Not due to his lack of performance, or his hunger but Pacquiao is still simply a phenom.
In all actuality, Bradley boxed rather beautifully. He was patient and methodical, not running in reckless like he did in the first two fights but all the good work that Bradley did would get overshadowed by Pacquiao. There were rounds that Bradley controlled two and a half minutes of but in the thirty seconds he didn’t control, Pacquiao would outland him and win the round. This happened throughout the fight and allowed Pacquiao to get a unanimous decision with 116-110 on all three judges score cards.
After the fight with Max Kellerman, Pacquiao announced his retirement. Personally, it didn’t even sound like Manny believed it. You can tell Pacquiao still has that fire in him, that urge to fight.
Bradley also hinted that he may retire but said “I can still fight”. There is no doubt that he can still fight but the question is who, because top rank likes to keep there fights in house.
If last night was the last time we see Pacquiao in the ring, then he went out with grace. He will be remembered as an all time great warrior, who gave his all for the fans. It was a pleasure watching him fight and I’m confident in saying he did a lot of good for the sport of boxing.
