Default Bradley already planning victory party

BRADLEY ALREADY PLANNING VICTORY PARTY
By John McCormick

Timothy Bradley will be in for the biggest test of his career on June 9th, when he challenges Manny Pacquiao for the WBO welterweight championship in Las Vegas. Many experts are picking Pacquiao to destroy Bradley, but others are not so quick to agree, predicting Bradley, the reigning world junior welterweight champion, will upset Pacquiao. One person that is quick to agree with those calling for an upset is Bradley himself. The undefeated Bradley is so confident that he has already planned a post-fight celebration party at the hotel hosting the fight, the MGM Grand.

"I am extremely confident. I am in the best shape of my life and I am prepared. There is no reason not to be confident. Manny Pacquiao is a great fighter. I have watched him for years, he is amazing, but I will win on June 9th" stated Bradley during a media conference call late last week.

Bradley, who will be fighting at the welterweight limit of 147 pounds for only the second time in his career, is already on weight. "I weighed myself when I left the gym today and I was 147 pounds, so I will probably weigh in a little light for the fight. I would say probably 144 or 145, I'll be light" claimed Bradley.

Bradley looks and acts the part of an appropraite foil for Pacquiao. He is in tremendous shape and seems extremely confident in his abilities. However, we have seen countless fighters with a great physique and confidence get blown out in big fights. Will Bradley be added to the list? He doesn't seem to think so.

"June 9th I will shock the world."

I really feel he is sincerely confident or making a very good act on showing out that he has all the confidence to "shock the World" but I have to realize that through my own eyes. Absolutely neutral about this one I am, doesn't matter at all to me if Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao is done or not...

That's very generous of Bradley to throw a victory party for Pac after Manny knocks him out. I have massive respect for that amount of graciousness.

He's on the cusp of greatness. He'll never be a superstar like Pac or May, win or lose, but being a two-division champion, dethroning an ATG, and unifying major titles twice inside your first 30 fights and years of life-that's HOF type stuff, if he can pull it off. I hope it's a good fight, either way.

his only chance is to headbut or hope that pac is not motivated, which the later he has little chance of.
