Headlines: PacMan destroys Bradley!
by M. Khan: There is a difference between who you want to win and who will win. On Sunday Morning the world will awake to the reality that Manny Pacquiao’s experience and past challengers was no match for Timothy Bradley.
A few weeks ago most boxing experts had Lucian Bute a favourite to take out Carl Froch. Those same experts are giving Timothy Bradley a realistic chance of beating the PacMan. Froch was in the ring with every top Super Middleweight, losing the Super Six to a quality boxer in Andre Ward, Andre Ward that Carl Froch will never beat.
Even Froch himself said, Ward is a different caliber of fighter that knows how to slip and slide away from being hit and is fast. Froch will ONLY fight Ward again, not to win but for the money at the end of his career. Boxing fans and experts will have to accept that a Ward/Froch fight will be boring with no substance to either fighter.
Bute had NEVER fought anyone that in their prime or considered a top 5 in the division. That night the truth and the unfairness of the boxing experts came to light.
You cannot based your predictions or expectations on ONE fight. In that fight with Ward, Froch realized that even the hard training and motivation was not going to win him that fight. Its a match up that Froch does not want anymore. This does not make Carl an inferior fighter to other opponents, only to Ward.
There is always room for a new super star to be born, a fighter that comes along and does the unexpected and takes out the Glory Man, giving room for his birth as the NEW SUPERSTAR ( Spinks vs Holmes ).
Bradley is not this fighter, even with a realistic chance of winning, and a slightly worn out PacMan, Bradley will be stopped in this fight.
Pacquiao can show up on Saturday with 80% of his arsenal and this will be enough to beat Bradley. Bradley better hope that the other PacMan does not show up. The whole HYPE would be for nothing.
Bradley is simply stepping up, a step too high. Even the fights against Lamont Peterson and Devon Alexander, shows that he cannot fight PacMan this way. Not a PacMan that has better foot movements, a better punch and a whole lot more ways or hitting you with speed that you have never faced before.
It’s not Bradley’s Turn. Pacquiao wins by 4th Round Stoppage.
