Pacquiao vs. Marquez Undercard: Timothy Bradley Def. Joel Casamayor by TKO
Many boxing fans called Timothy Bradley's bout against Joel Casamayor a mismatch, and that's just what it was after Bradley stopped the 40-year-old opponent in Round 8.
Over the course of the bout, Bradley scored three knockdowns over his opponent. Casamayor also received a point deduction in round three for headbutting.
Casamayor's corner threw in the towel after the end of the eigth round.
Bradley, who is the WBO light welterweight champion, extends his undefeated record to 28-0 with 11 knockouts while Casamayor falls to 38-6-1 with 22 knockouts.
In the main event, Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38 KO) will battle former foe Juan Manuel Marquez (53-5-1, 39 KO) for the third time later tonight on HBO pay-per-view, and it may be the most defining moment of each boxers' career.
Pacquiao has achieved more than any active boxer, and that includes being the first eight-division world champion and the first to win a lineal championship in four different weight classes.
Their first fight between the two saw Marquez getting dropped three times in the first round, but he fought back to earn a draw in one of 2004's most exciting fights.
The 2008 rematch saw Marquez getting knocked down again, and he would lose a split-decision that many had thought he deserved to win.
