And if you think Bradley is as quick, or skilled as Manny, or has beaten Manny's level of opposition... you sir must be 10 yrs old.

I don't think Bradley has enough experience at this time to really know how to handle someone with Pacquiao's skillset (two-handed power, the punching angles Manny gets into, having the jab taken away by Manny possibly via head-movement and jab counters). Bradley also doesn't have enough power or a substantial reach advantage to make Pacquiao think twice before swarming.

I bet you were one of those who said "ODLH will rape Manny's Ass" before their fight.

I actually think it would be a tough fight for pac.... bradley is strong, young, undefeated, talented and has a strong will to win. Theres no way i see Pac stopping him before the 8th, if at all. tough fight.... i gotta think that pac would find a way to win off his activity and speed, but some people here are going a bit overboard IMO

I'm a Bradley fan and he would give Pac a tough fight but he hasn't faced anyone close to Pac's level of speed and activity yet.

That was before the Cotto fight, and they picked Cotto to win.


Same thing happened to Duran-Leonard 1 and the Duran-leonard 3.
