Analysing Pacquiao's Last Performance

1st Things first. Please dont turn this into a discussion of who won the fight and lets try not to mention a fight with you know who.

Just want to hear peoples opinion on Pacquiaos performance against Bradley.

Focus - As far as focus goes it seemed to all be there. Didnt look distracted one bit.

Speed - wasnt blazingly quick but he didnt seem any slower then the Marquez & Mosley fights.

Power - Check

Defence - Surprised me with his ability to block so many shots with his arms.

Legs - I think the main think i took from that performance is that he doesnt have the legs to attack for a full round anymore. Was obvious he was taking the first 2 minutes of to try and prevent cramping.

Hunger - He just didnt look like the animal that he used to be. He hasnt really been that hungry aggressive fighter for a few years now. Could be down to his legs or simply age. I cant think of any fighter in their 30's that still hunts people down like they used to.

Overall i dont see him as the offensive genius he used to be. Simply cos of age, i think his legs where a crucial ingredient in hs ability to blast forward and shred people up by jumping in and out while landing flurries through all three minutes of the round.

I wouldnt mind seeing a Bradley rematch just for one reason. The hunger to prove that he won would mean we would see Manny put in 100% and try his best for the K.O, then we can get a clear picture of how much he really has in the tank.
