People aren't showing Bradley any respect.

Yes Mayweather will outbox him, but I believe Bradley does make it hard and puts some work in and would win a few rounds. He wont be no rollover.

Floyd beats the brakes of Bradley, all due respect to Tim.

Devon Alexander would actually pose Mayweather more difficulty than Bradley would IMO.

Mayweather dominates Bradley but somehow loses a decision.

Arum smiles.

Pacquiao shrugs and says he's praying for Floyd after reports surface that he is suicidal following the "loss" of his "0".

And life goes on.

Laser accuracy? No more metaphors I just explained how Bradley would be more elusive than Cotto, his head movement is superior. Floyd has sharp punches but he hasn't consistently KO'ed his opponents recently apart from Ortiz, who has a storied history of getting knocked down now.

Speed. Reach. Skills. Power. There are literally no advantages for Bradley.

WTF. You should have your account suspended.

On a serious note though, it would be a good fight. I would want to see that more than seeing TB/MP II.

I scored 9-2-1 Pacquiao. What did you score? And I'm not even Filipino or a big Pacquiao fan (my favorite active fighters are probably Sergio Martinez and Canelo Alvarez). But Bradley simply was not doing quality work. Most of his punches were garbage flicker jabs/slapping hooks that Pacquiao was blocking with his gloves. It was Pacquiao who was landing the cleaner, harder punches. And he was landing way more of them than Bradley. He also pressed the action, controlled the pacing of the fight, and Bradley basically stopped trying to win the fight after the first third of the fight. He realized committing to his punches was only getting him nailed by hard Pacquiao counters. So then he got on his bike and started throwing garbage punches he didn't commit to so Pacquiao's countering ability wouldn't punish him. That might have forced Pacquiao to lead with his aggression (rather than capitalize on what Bradley was doing as what happened earlier in the fight), but Pacquiao still landed more quality punches, even later in the fight. Bradley might have been "outworking" Pacquiao later on. But was it quality work? HELL NO.

He hasn't consistently knocked out anybody but yet he's consistently beat the living shit out of everybody he's fought recently. He's consistently showed a very high level of skill, and has consistently dominated good opposition.
Last I checked he didnt get knocked down twice by Pacquiao with even with the one leg.

You're generalizing what I'm saying about the accuracy, but not reading into the context- he is usually accurate but not as much as normally was during Cotto. Just saying he has "laser accuracy" doesn't say anything at all really

A small guy with not much of a punch with a tendency to throw inaccurate flurries would not fare well against Floyd.
Alexander is bigger, can fight at range and is capable of throwing very good jabs, which he can double and tripple whilst moving. This gives him a better base to build from against Mayweather, than anything Bradley has.

how do you see his lack of determination factoring in when he's in there with someone he can barely hit?
