Alright. My bad. I was under the impression you scored it for Bradley and were rejoicing in his "victory" given the avatar. Was your scorecard was 8-4 or 7-5 Pacquiao?

I don't think he'd ever get physically bullied, so he'd hold out for all 12. Grunting like a pervert and doing the same thing over and over.

He has the physical strength, not sure on the size yet, from what I've seen he walks around 160 but he came in on fight night at 147. Bradley will do what Ortiz failed to do, make a very physical fight, plenty of inside work, good workrate, and as an added bonus, he can actually butt without making it look so BLATANT. Floyd is getting older too, he's 35 now and father time wont be playing nice with his athleticism

Sadly I don't see floyd going through hoops to make this fight (nor Arum)


Thoughts? HATER comments? Bring it

Not a Mayweather fan, but Bradley's style is an easy style for Mayweather. Mayweather will not be countered or hit as easy like he did Pacquiao. I think Pacquiao might have a small chance defeating Mayweather, but definitely Bradley doesn't.

He can't hurt Mayweather or outbox Mayweather. He can hope to outwork Mayweather but Mayweather isn't silly enough to just allow a guy like Bradley to outwork him and will make him pay for his activity especially if it comes sloppy.

Bradley would make it an entertaining fight but would get hit flush to many times and Mayweather would seal the fight in convincing fashion in the championship rds. Edit not saying a ko but would whoop that ass.

Pacquaio punches harder but Mayweather is a heavier and stronger guy, it'd be a different type of preassure. Accurate, constant punches, while Bradley lands nothing major would tire him out. Hard to lift those muscled arms for 12 rounds.
Floyd and Manny are the same damn size.

Mayweather is heavier up top, and a stronger guy.

He would be schooled near as badly as well, always thought bradley had no chance vs floyd, so I was glad he eventually fought pacquiao.
He had a better shot against him and did better than he ever would against floyd despite still losing.

If Bradley boxes like he did against Manny for stretches, he could pose a problem for this flat footed version of Floyd who needs to be set to punch. Just bulling into him is an idiot's plan. That's jumping into the jaws of the tiger. Force Floyd to lead and ambush him when he doesn't get set quickly.

Bradley is NOT a small guy, and has very good upper body strength to work his way around the clinches

I think he'd take a worse beating.

Mayweather had respect for the craft of Marquez, he wouldn't for Bradley.

Pacquiao's listed at 5'6.5" with a 67" reach and T-rex arms. He does have a broad back and huge calves, but those are his only "big" dimensions.

Mayweather is listed at 5'8" with a 72" reach. He has long arms, too.

By the time Floyd was 28-29 he was at Welterweight; at the same age, Pacquiao was at Super Featherweight.

Floyd is indeed a physically bigger, stronger man than Manny is.
