Pacquiao vs. Bradley: Desert Storm's Cockiness Makes Him Look Foolish
Tim Bradley needs to slow his roll.
He was privileged enough to be selected by the great WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao for his next fight, and should be focused on knocking off arguably the best pound-for-pound boxer in the sport.
Instead, he’s already taking about a potential bout against the undefeated Floyd Mayweather. When speaking with Boxing Scene about his June 9 fight, Desert Storm began yapping about Money May inexplicably:
(Manny) is beatable. Floyd Mayweather is beatable, too. He’s the next one on my list. After I take care of Pacquiao, I’m going to take care of Floyd Mayweather next.
Really? You are talking that kind of trash right now? That fight wouldn’t happen until September at the earliest. Bradley is getting waaay ahead of himself here.
Then there are the comments he spouted off about Pacman in a recent interview (via Yahoo! Sports):
I truly believe it's going to be an easy fight. I think everybody knows what he likes to do. But I think with my style alone and my ability and my way to be able to adjust in the ring, I think that's going to be a handful in itself. … And then, on top of that, you've got my speed, you got my power, you got my determination on top of that.
Who exactly is Tim Bradley and why is he making such outlandish comments?
He is a 28-year-old undefeated junior welterweight champion with a perfect 25-0 (11 KO’s) record that is currently ranked as the No. 2 best boxer in the Light Welterweight division by Ring Magazine.
Impressive—until you look at his opponents. Joel Casamayor, Devon Alexander, Luis Abregu and Lamont Peterson were his last four wins, and I’m going to go out on the limb and say the average boxing fan may be able to recognize two of those names.
He has yet to prove himself against top competition, and his remarks against two of the all-time greats are embarrassing.
Beat Pacman and then start targeting Mayweather. One step at a time.
Bradley is the underdog in this “easy” fight and will make you believe he’s the best boxer on the planet. In reality, Bradley is just a young gun that has tasted success and thinks he’s better than he really is.
As Pacman sits back and reads his comments with a smile, expect him to use this ridiculous remarks to his advantage in a fight that will be decided by a Pacquiao KO in Round 10.
Mayweather won’t be calling on June 10.
