Bradley to win IMO, I hope he don't let himself or me down :lol:. I've been talking big on this one but i truly believe he will beat Pac.
Movement to his left, which moves away from Manny's best punch his left hand. I think it was Manny Steward who said Pac fights a lot off of his left hand. Bradley will look to keep that success down to a minimum and look to make Manny fall out of position and counter aggressively. He will also look to mentally frustrate Pacquiao due to suffocating his success with power shots. Manny likes fighters who fight in his range and fight him like a bigger man. Bradley must keep his footwork tight, and smart and just edge out of range but in a position to counter. Feint and bait which JMM uses so well are Manny's weakness. Bradley's different but may opt for more conventional feints, I'll be interested to see if Bradley will use his lead foot to tread on Manny right foot like JMM did so well.
Bradley has a very nice looping right hand and short inside range right hand as well, key punches against a southpaw. He's got good footwork and a low centre of gravity which will make it hard for Manny who will have to punch down for first time in a long time. I feel Bradley will look to mix it up and take it inside against Pac. He's a effective body puncher and Manny doesn't like to body i've seen Bradley work on left hook counter to body and then step inside and right hand to mid drift so he's bringing it!!. What's so impressive about him is his ability to fight in different parts of ring and aspects of the fight whether it be inside or mid range or long range or even in a bad transitional he reacts extremely well to his surroundings.
I think he will take over the fight at midway point, i think early he will look to take rounds and adjust to the speed and power of Manny. It's important he makes Manny miss rather then just covering up. Don't let him use you for balance.
Wearing Grant Gloves is a great advantage for me, there very big across the surface and will cover his dome :lol: but in seriousness they are great for defensive fighters.
His weakness is his want to dog it out and himself at times squares up inside and becomes over aggressive. This needs to be a methodical ice cool display.
