Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley will have a sure win-lose fight on April 12. Both welterweights champions are certain for their WBO rematch this coming April 12 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas. Two years ago, Bradley defeated the People’s Champ by split decision. The two boxers are even more determined to win the coming rematch. “…I want to prove that I can still fight,” said Pacquiao who just turned 35 last December.
The Filipino Congressman would want to retain his name in the boxing world as one of the unbeatable. “My career is not done yet,” he added. The decision over the Pacquiao and Bradley fight last June 2012 was rumored by the media and viewers. Even the advertiser for both teams, Bob Arum, has questioned the decision. The majority believed of Pacquiao’s strength and speed which said to obviously beat Bradley.
On the other hand, Bradley felt down as he heard speculations about his win. “…this fight is about redemption. I want to redeem what I didn’t get,” he stated. This time he wants to prove to the world that he won and that no one can say that he did not conquered that fight. “…that hurts me,” he added. The split decision was criticized by many.
Five independent judges were again hired by the WBO to review the fight and re-score it. Again, all are in favor of Pacquaio. But months after Bradley-Pacquiao fight, Juan Manuel Marquez once again knocket out Manny Pacquiao on the ring. It was almost a year when Pacquiao proved again his boxing skills and capability when he stood up again in the ring of Macau and defeated Brandon Rios.
The fight was watched by Bradley but the boxer was not totally overwhelmed with the match. “…I just feel that the killer instinct is gone,” Bradley said after having a good name in the boxing world last 2013 who also won over Marquez. Bradley said that their coming fight would be easier for him. “It is like learning to ride a bike, the second time is easier,” he added.
