Manny Pacquiao Gets Redemption Against Timothy Bradley [Details]
Manny Pacquiao showed every one how much of a robbery his first loss to Timothy Bradley was last night by defeating him soundly. Pacquiao won the fight in decision with the judges scoring 118-110, 116-112 and 116-112, regaining his WBO Title and his peace of mind.
Pacquiao attacked Bradley the entire bought, something that he has been lacking his past few fights. Bradley stuck to his plan of knocking out Pacquiao but ended up swinging himself into exhaustion by the 6th round, that is when “the Pacman” really took over.
“He gave me a good fight. He’s not that easy,” Pacquiao said. “I listened to my corner about keeping my hands up and timing. He threw a lot of punches. He threw wide, wide, wide hooks. I got hit one time and said it’s not good to be careless.”
Bradley who suffered his first professional boxing loss, also suffered a right calf injury in the first round of the fight, but he did not use that as an excuse for loosing.
I have no excuses,” Bradley said. “Stuff happens. I got nothing to say about it. ?You can’t say nothing against Manny. I lost to one of the best fighters in the world. Manny fought his heart out. I tip my hat to his whole corner, Freddie Roach and his whole team.” “I think I can fight for two more years,” said Pacquiao, boxing’s only eight-division champion. “I am so happy to be a world champion again.”
Hopefully within those two years we see Pacquiao take on another undefeated boxer by the name Floyd Mayweather.
