Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley was impressive with his overall boxing ability against Luis Carlos Abregu tonight on HBO. Bradley moved up from 140 to 147 to fight Abregu and took Abregu’s best punches like they were nothing. Bradley wobbled the taller and bigger Abregu multiple times throughout the fight and outboxed him winning a unanimous decision victory.
After his dominant performance, Timothy Bradley called out Manny Pacquiao and issued a stern challenge to him with a face that meant business.
I doubt that Manny Pacquiao will accept the challenge or wants anything to do with Timothy Bradley or any other slick fighter like that who can punch and take a punch.
Bob Arum and Freddie Roach ain’t gonna risk putting their cash cow in with a deadly fighter like Bradley. They wanna put Manny in with the same old style of fighter they always do to hype him up, slow, come forward, worn out fighters. You know the type; Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito and Juan Manuel Marquez.
Some of these Pac fans are crying that Floyd is a coward or scared, well Floyd has never backed down from a challenge and Manny Pacquiao has like when Juan Manuel Marquez flew all the way to the Philippines with a contract and challenged Manny Pacquiao to his face only to have Pacquiao shy away from the challenge.
Everytime Floyd Mayweather gets called out or challenged he accepts the fight and whoops their butt. Ricky Hatton called Floyd out and Floyd beat his butt, Juan Manuel Marquez called Floyd out and Floyd beat his butt, and Shane Mosley called Floyd out and Floyd beat his butt.
You Mayweather haters saying that Floyd is ducking Pacquiao are hilarious when Floyd has fought all the guys who called him out and beat them up. Manny Pacquiao has never officially called Floyd Mayweather out after his HBO fights.
So we know the truth here, Pacquiao is the one avoiding Mayweather and will probably now avoid Timothy Bradley as well.
I wanna see how the supposedly fearless Manny Pacquiao handles this situation, will he fight Timothy Bradley after being challenged or will he pretend he never heard it.
I’ll predict the outcome if they ever do fight….Bradley by stoppage.
