The light welterweight champion Bradley (28W, 0L, 12KO) from Palm Springs, CA came into weigh-ins at 146 lbs. Bradley looked ready and prepared and had a stoned face when walking onto the stage and during his weigh-in. When asks if Bradley is ready for his first major fight Bradley said, “I am ready for war.”
WBO Welterweight Champion Pacquiao (54W, 3L, 38KO) came into the weigh-in at 146lbs relaxed and cool. The distractions that plagued him in the later part of 2011 look as if it has passed and he is ready for this fight against Bradley. Pacquiao said about the fight, “I am not taking him lightly.” He added, “I like to fight undefeated fighters.”
This is going to be a good fight. Bradley is a buzz saw who will keep attacking his opponent. It is rare that you will see him hit and run. This fighter is found and hungry ready for this huge fight in his career. As for Pacquiao he looks calm and cool as a champion should but he will need to be ready for Bradley attack style.
This fight I see going 12 rounds and should be a fight that win or lose will put Bradley into the eyes of the boxing fans who don’t follow the sport as closely as some. Pacquiao vs Bradley is on HBO pay-per-view tomorrow evening starting at 5pm.
