Manny Pacquiao is counting down the weeks to his much awaited clash against Timothy Bradley Jr., a fight that numerous are not too thrilled to view.
Based on the previous meetings in 2012 and after that 2014, many believe that Pacquiao won both fights despite losing the first (2012) via split decision.
Such is really what many are batting, criticizing the Pacquiao camp for his or her selection of Bradley. Either way, Bradley remains tough if an individual compares the road followed by Floyd Mayweather Jr. back September when he selected Andre Berto.
However, there's two things that have the fight challenging. One is his political aspiration plus the second would be the fact it are going to be his first fight coming off shoulder surgery.
Pacquiao placed himself inside the hot seat when he discussed the gay issue, comparing people in same-sex relationships to animals. While Pacquiao is permitted his own opinion, this individual have forgotten that he is a high-profile individual and a person that will always be around the radar.
Then there may be that shoulder of his that he injured while practicing for Mayweather Jr. before their clash in May 2015.
It will likely be interesting to determine how surgery has helped Pacquiao at this point and whether or not it has had effects on his speed and punching power. Against Bradley, he's going to need to protect that shoulder a lttle bit since "Desert Storm" knows the weak spot on the Filipino boxer.
It will likely be a pressure-packed few months for Pacquiao in the and out on the ring. While this is nothing new to him, he's going to have a full plate of what you should address that may turn in or from his favor.
Bradley indicates to be a different fighter since starting up with Teddy Atlas and this also upcoming fight need to be the biggest test of all. All that is going to be known whenever they go in internet marketing at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on April 9.
