It is very unlikely anyone is stopped here IMO, unless it is on cuts.
Absolutely cannot see Bradley getting a stoppage win (unless by a miscalled headbutt) but I could see Pac stopping him if he actually has a fire in his belly for the first time in a while. Big 'if' there

Even if he does, I don't know...

To me Bradley has a lot of comparable attributes to Mosley, especially whereas it relates to being "stoppable": physical strength, gas tank, mental toughness, ability to take a hit.... He's also by my reckoning smarter than Azucar, who managed to "Cuidado" his way to the final bell once he realized he wasn't winning the speed contest with Pac. What he lacks in size relative to Mosley, he makes up for in being in the solid thick of his prime rather than old & weathered.

I'm very skeptical about the idea of Pacquiao stopping Bradley (and as you say, Bradley stopping Pacquiao is almost silly...)

Pac by close decision. Won't look good doing so.

Won't be surprised to see an accidental clash of heads shortening the fight.

This is EXACTLY what I think.

Pac by scores in the 115-113/116-112 neigborhood (maybe one drawn card for a MD if there's a Californian judge - we don't know know the judges yet, do we? ...and some slick black Americans will cry robbery, while Filipinos will insist on the other extreme end of the spectrum that it ought to have been a shutout, but normal level-headed people will shrug and say "Yeah, that scoring's about right I guess... ")

There is also that VERY real possibility of it going to a TD, maybe somewhere around the halfway mark, due to a clash causing one or the other to be blinded by oozing plasma.


They've got five technical decisions between them (Pacquiao 1-0-1, Bradley 3-0). Out of a combined 88 bouts that might not seem like a lot, but factor in the usual inherent danger of orthodox vs. southpaw, then think about Pacquiao's style of jumping in to attack, and now think about Bradley's style, throw in that they're the same height, and add that both have huge craniums...and yeah.

They are two greatest ever lift and is as my friend Gemesh Korobnik once telled me "You may make a face at the moon, but in doing so, philosophy is just a bad product of misunderstanding language and when horses make a urine, they is amazing to tugged winking is not dirty." And this, my friend, is very veracity.

Correcting if my left is right, but am I not failed to wrong in your apprehended monitor?

Did Bloodworth not chuck terrycloth?


(and how much terrycloth did Bloodworth chuck if Bloodworth did chuck terrycloth?)


Yes, Signore Barrovecchio was too fast in the way of laundry to optimize aerodynamic properties - but the intent was purposes.

Bang on.

As much as I've been all for this fight, it still has all the ingredients for controversy, disappointment, and at worst, a night to forget.

Bradley has to stop him to get a draw. His only chance is a KO and hes feather fisted. One outcome courtesy of Bob Arum

Pac by a clear UD on the judge's scorecards, from a close & ugly fight.

Rds 1 through 4: Feel-out rounds between Pac and Bradley, with Timmy winning through his fast jabs and movements. Pacquiao loses his patience and receives right straights/hooks from Timmyhead. Timmy 3rds to Pac1

Rds 5 through 8: pac already warmed up from the earlier rounds despite losing rounds. Pac unleashes his multiple punch combos while moving to Timmy's left. 2 out of 5 of the punches lands but Timmy felt that. Pac gets 3 out of the 4 rounds.

Rds 8-9: Timmy slows down from the power punches from Manny. Manny still has pop on his hands as he can handle Timmy's punches.

Rd 10: Timmy loses his speed and gets caught by a short left hook from Pac in the exchanges. Timmy, out of breathe, stays on his knee and calls it a night.


Just a thought.
