As I previously stated in my last article the winner of the light-welterweight unification Timothy Bradley vs. Devon Alexander fight should rightfully claim the top spot on the pound-for-pound rankings over Manny Pacquiao.
Timothy Bradley showed us that he is an all around boxer who hasn’t ducked anyone and is willing to fight all the toughest competitors in the 140 division and even move up to 147 to challenge Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.
Bradley is what an old school throwback fighter is all about, he never complains about money and he wants to test himself against all the toughest guys around. Bradley is a breath of fresh air for boxing when you have guys like Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather and Wladimir Klitschko, David Haye not willing to fight each other over things like money and drug testing.
What I liked about the Bradley-Alexander fight was it wasn’t a mismatch and was very competitive unlike all the recent mismatched and non-competitive fights Manny Pacquiao has fought.
If Bradley does land a shot against Manny Pacquiao, I would say it’s a 50-50 fight, and after Bradley’s performance against Alexander I would say that he has the composure and patience of an experienced veteran and give Manny a run for his money.
In all honesty, I think Floyd Mayweather would fight Tim Bradley before Manny Pacquiao does. If Floyd does come back from vacation and fights Bradley as his first fight back and defeats him, he would automatically reclaim his throne on the pound-for-pound list.
