Predictions for Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley Fight

Ramses AlvarezCorrespondent IIMay 22, 2012

They are two fighters sharing the same ring but fighting remarkably different battles.

For Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KO), his fight against Timothy Bradley (28-0, KO 12) is an opportunity to show fans that he is the same fighter who destroyed Oscar De La Hoya, Miguel Cotto and Antonio Magarito. Pacquiao’s controversial victory over Juan Manual Marquez left a bitter test in boxing fans' mouths. A dominant performance over Bradley will sweeten a potential fight with Floyd Mayweather (43-0, 26 KO.)

Timothy Bradley is fighting for recognition. He has been a world champion since 2008, but outside of the hardcore boxing fanbase, he is largely unknown. This is his opportunity to become a household name.

Can Bradley dethrone Pac-Man? Will boxing fans ever see the old Pacquiao again? Bleacher Report breaks down the fight.
