Atlas won’t be a factor in Pacquiao-Bradley 3, says Penalosa

atlasBy Tim Fletcher: Former world champion Gerry Penalosa doubts the impact new trainer Teddy Atlas will be able to make with WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley (33-1-1, 13 KOs) in his third fight with Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38 KOs) in their rematch on April 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Penalosa thinks that Bradley has a lot of belief and trust in Atlas at this point of their teaming up with one another, but he doesn’t see Atlas as being capable of improving or changing Bradley enough for him to defeat Pacquiao in this fight.

The problem that Atlas has in his efforts to improve Bradley and give him a different look than before is that he’s already given different looks in past fights with Pacquiao. We’ve seen Bradley box, slug and move in his two fights with Pacquiao.
