During Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley's open media workout in Los Angeles, Calif. today, he showed just how confident he is going into the biggest fight of his career on June 9 against pound-for-pound great Manny Pacquiao by making fake credentials and posters for a rematch between the two welterweights in November according to Ring Magazine via Twitter.

Ring Magazine tweeted:

 

The currently fictional rematch propaganda that relates to a rematch clause that Bob Arum told the Manilla Bulletin was in place in case "PacMan" loses to "Desert Storm" on June 9, that would set up a tentatively scheduled November 10th rematch between Bradley and Pacquiao.

Bradley's decision to create the fake rematch material was great on his part, as he is showing that he very much believes that he will be victorious against "PacMan." The move could also work against Bradley by motivating Pacquiao that much more before their bout that is less than two weeks away.

Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal tweeted Pacquiao's initial reaction to the fictional credentials that Bradley's camp passed around at his open media workout.

Carp tweeted:

 

 

If Bradley has created some more buzz around the big fight between himself and Pacquiao, and if his prank turns into a reality, it would be huge for his career and boxing. If Bradley can beat "PacMan" on June 9, a rematch would be a huge success, as it would be a must-see event to see if Pacquiao could  avenge his first loss since 2005.
