Pac by KO. Bradley changes tune after first 3 rounds. I predict him doing a Cotto.

I love Cotto dearly, but the man is too dumb for his own good at times (Pac, Margarito). He is certainly dumber than Bradley.

Not unintelligent, mind you - just dumb when the times comes to either act a man or choose the wiser but ignoble path. That people ever question his heart over something as trifling as going to a knee is ridiculous. His heart is both one of his best assets, and what sometimes gets him in trouble.

Think about how deep Cotto made it while getting pasted (after the first few rounds). He made it halfway into the twelfth.

Now add that Bradley is a smarter fighter than Cotto, and his punch resistance is at least as good. (in fact, I'd say the distressing symptoms from Miguel's 140 days were bigger red flags for him than any supposed warning signs about Tim's chin to date).

Bradley is lasting the distance.

I give him very little chance of taking the decision, but it is going to one.

Bradley is awkward and accurate enough with the right hand to trouble pac and to take rounds from him once he gets into his groove. Problem is...Bradley sometimes takes his time finding that groove and that's something he can ill afford to do against a popular, quick starting Pac.

Desert Storm weathers the storm and by the end of the night has Pac looking a bit bruised after connecting with rights over 12 hard rounds. But the slow start works against him, and Pac walks away with a close but clear UD over 12 hard rounds (scores of 7-5 and 8-4)

Pacman by KO-similar to how he beat Ricky-

Bradley talk talk talk-Manny will walk walk walk and end Bradley's career-

Pacman-Bradley is a good fight but Bradley is not match for Pacquiao and the 1-2-3 he throws.

I like bradley on points. I think his footwork and angles keep him safe from feeling the pac combinations at there worst. His defense is better than pac's and i think he has enough boxing skills to compete with pac if it became a boxing match. It's competitive but bradley has the better all round skills and use's the ring brilliantly, he should maneuver he way to a win. I expect bradley to box pac more than anything but he will defo muscle his way to the inside and if he gets pac's timing down well and feels comfortable i expect to see bradley stay in pac's face and outbox him on the inside to victory with counter punches, slick angles and parrying punches.

Pac has the speed and venom to make bradley have to work hard and stay focused all night. Pac is a high level test for bradley physically more than skillfully. I think Pac will over look bradley to some degree.

Bradley is coming up in weight so maybe he has more power in his punches but i still don't see a stoppage for him. Bradley's power is underrated i think he has enough to gain his opponents respect even if he isn't KO'ing them.

Pac could come out and be physically too much for bradley and if bradley makes the big mistake of wanting a fan friendly punch up instead of staying composed and not rushing he could grind pac down slowly.

This is good analysis, from a good egg.

Bradley hasn't impressed me yet.

Pacquaio didn't impress me against Marquez.

So, you're looking for an unimpressive performance both ways...leading to an unimpressive draw?

Yes, basically, I'm not impressed with the match up in any way.

Fading Pacquiao goes in, looks like a boxing superstar against an over matched opponent and then retires.

Reminiscent of Pac-Cotto for the first four rounds (KD's included).
Then reminiscent of Pac-Mosley from rounds 5 to 12.

Now let's all pray that Bradley does something stupid to piss Pac off so Pac will go hulk on Tim.

Pac ducked Mayweather, likely forever, and lost to JMM twice.

I'm not buying into the hype any more. Not drinking the koolaid.

This fight will be fun to watch, but it's fairly irrelevant.

When has Bradley ever been seriously challenged? Pac by dec. Fight will be closer than most people think.
