While going out to watch a big fight can be fun, staying home and watching it is the better way to go.
If you are planning on watching Timothy Bradley vs. Manny Pacquiao at a friend's house or at a bar, it's going to be more of a social event. There will be distractions and it's likely you won't see every jaw-dropping punch if you go that route.
Instead, if you stay home and find your own way to watch the fight, you are much more likely to hold your own the next day at the water cooler.
In other words, you will actually have seen what happened.
When you're watching, here are a few things you should be paying attention to.
Timothy Bradley's right hand
Everyone talks about Bradley's speed and quickness or Pacquiao's power, but Desert Storm packs quite a bit into his right hook.
Take a look:
Bradley almost hides that big punch, and if he can land a major connection or two on Pacquiao, he'll floor the champ. Keep your eye on that.
The fall of Pacquiao
Manny Pacquiao still holds the crown as best pound-for-pound boxer, but he looked fairly pedestrian last time out against Juan Manuel Marquez.
Simple. Who wins?
Desert Storm is younger and quicker than Marquez, and if Pacquiao struggles like he did in that fight, we will see Pac-Man fall.
And if that happens, it could be the last we see of the legendary boxer, as he has hinted at retirement before (via USA Today).
I think Bradley will come away with the win tonight, and I'm not going to miss it. Manny Pacquiao hardly ever loses, and I want to be able to say I saw it.
At least once.
