Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley
Timothy Bradley somehow managed to have a half-inch disadvantage in height against Manny Pacquiao.
Most Pacquiao opponents in welterweight have been bigger. The only little men in nearly 10 years to give Pacquiao any trouble were Juan Manuel Marquez and Erik Morales.
Morales was knocked to kingdom come in two rematches. Marquez was nearly knocked out in the first round of their first fight and consistently comes close instead of blows him away.
Considering Marquez was blessed to make it out of their first round together and has had the good fortune to have 36 rounds with Pacquiao, he still can't decisively dominate Pacquiao.
What does that mean for Bradley, a fighter with experience but not much on the elite level? At this point in their careers, Pacquiao is still too prime and Bradley too green to dethrone the Filipino king.
