Manny Pacquiao is a 4-1 favorite over unbeaten Timothy Bradley in a the 12-round bout, slated on Sunday (Manila Time) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Pacquiao plans to knock out Bradley, who is headlining a pay-per-view card for the first time in his fight career.
Freddie Roach said that Pacquiao is gunning for stoppage this time to make up for his disappointing performance against Juan Manuel Marquez last November.
Though he had swept his last 15 opponents en route to a 54-3-2 record with 38 knockouts, Pacquiao failed to finish off the last four—Joshua Clottey, Antonio Margarito, Shane Mosley and Marquez.
Meanwhile, Bradley claims that Pacquiao’s selection as Fighter of the Decade, does not scare him but it just props him up.
Bradley will go toe-to-toe, once he finds out that he can withstand the global icon’s power.
Bradley is ready to shock the world. He will be using Marquez’s style as blueprint on how to punish and dominate Pacquiao.
He stands to receive $5 million, the biggest paycheck of his career while Pacquiao will be getting $26 million plus a share in pa-per-view and gate receipts.
If Bradley’s hunch proves right, he will still be in for trouble with Pacquiao, who is faster and more experienced.
Pacquiao has fought 59 times, including 16 world title fights that saw him emerge as king in eight weight divisions.
