Saturday night, King J had the honor of covering the now historical, infamous super fight of Manny Pacquiao vs. Tim Bradley at the MGM Grand.

The actual title for this article if I had enough space would be: "Manny Pacquiao/Timothy Bradley Fight Coverage Video With Exclusive Interviews With: Bob Arum, Michael Buffer, Tia Carrere and A Very Candid Interview With Max Kellerman About the Controversial Decision," but obviously, that title did not fit.

I had an extremely productive weekend covering the fight and talked to some of the biggest names in the sport of boxing and obtained the answers that I, and I'm sure many of the fight fans, wanted to find out.


Right after the weigh-in, I was able to chat with Bob Arum and asked him what he thought about Pacquiao weighing-in at a surprising career high of 147lbs?

I got to talk with Michael Buffer about his career and even his brother's now successful career announcing the UFC fights as well. I asked Buffer about the urban legend of his trademark phrase: "Let's get ready to rumble."

Most shockingly to me, Buffer told me he was good friends with one certain legendary late rapper.


Then, I had the really special treat of interviewing movie star Tia Carrere (Wayne's World, True Lies, etc.) who told me what Manny Pacquiao meant to her.


Then of course the big mother bomb dropped on us all when Bradley was shockingly declared the winner via a highly controversial split decision and that just made most at the MGM Grand very hostile, confused, furious, (take your pick of what ever adjective you would like to utilize here).

Max Kellerman was kind enough to give me a very candid exclusive interview to sum up what he thought about the shockingly controversial loss of Pacquiao to Bradley.

Max even brings up what this means now for the Mayweather fight.

I even brought up that the No. 1 hash tag: #RIPBoxing was trending on Twitter right after the Bradley victory of Pacquiao was declared and asked him about that.

To see what all of the answers are to these questions and more make sure to watch the King J Coverage of Pacquiao vs. Bradley video.

I want to thank Max Kellerman for being very honest and opening up to me, and for giving Bleacher Report a major shout out as well. We work very hard and appreciate the love and recognition here.

Also want to thank Bob Arum, Michael Buffer, Tia Carrere and Jokoy for taking the time to talk about the sport of boxing with me.

I also have an exclusive interview with referee Kenny Bayless coming soon. He refereed the co-main event of Arce vs. Rojas, where he talks about that bizarre fight result as well, his career and answered your questions so look out for that coming next!
