Default Joel Diaz- Comments regarding the Pacquiao fight/training (during media day)

Said 140 was a lil tough to make, right now Bradley's floating at about 150ish and can easily make 147 and can maintain the speed that he had at 140. Also noted that Marquez gave them the blueprint and they were going to follow it and win the decision (toldja)

Bradley: I'm definitely stronger at 147, I can take a stronger punch at 147. (below is a paraphrase of additional quotes from Tim)

Also said he will adjust depending on what Pacquiao does, thinks Pacquiao will come out fast. Plans to bob and weave. Said he's ready to go but hasn't peaked early. Says he isn't paying attention to records (Pac's losses/draw), references Giants winning the superbowl. Bradley thinks Peterson/Berto controversy might bring more or might shy fighters away from testing. He's aware of his big head, mentions it being on side of the bus .

I dont think Bradley will follow the 'marquez blueprint' . He'll do what what he's used to doing and that's coming forward, using pressure. If he tries to box and move he'll just lose a wide UD. He has to take chances and he's acknowledged that. Hopefully he doesnt pull a mosley and start running once he gets hit.

one thing i'm concerned with is the tendency for Bradley to get reckless with his combos like at 1:47 in the vid against Alexander

He won't win a decision. He can knock Manny down 3 times in 12 rounds. You guys really don't see how Arum has hands involved in all this do you...

For large portions of the fight (especially early on), I think he'll be doing the complete opposite. Roach and Pac are making a huge mistake if they think Bradley's gonna' be coming forward all night.

I definitely think they're going to try and use both. Footage shows that Bradley isn't afraid to come forward and dig at the body on the inside, but they also seem to be working on boxing laterally and counter-punching. The way Tim's training is making this very interesting, even though I've always favored Pac.
