Pacquiao vs Bradley: Timothy Bradley - Portrait of a Fighter (Video)

Well, it's that time. Big fight week is upon us. This Saturday night on HBO pay-per-view from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Manny Pacquiao faces Timothy Bradley in the main event, and all week long, we're going to have extensive, wall-to-wall coverage of the fight.

Bradley (28-0, 12 KO) has emerged as a far more interesting personality than we ever knew before, and the Portrait of a Fighter video adds to that. Not just Bradley, though, but his entire team -- trainer Joel Diaz, father Big Ray. These guys are characters. Bradley's profile and star power has gone way up, in a sustainable manner, no matter what happens on Saturday, I think.

"Never take no for an answer. People said to me early on that I was too short for the weight class. I didn't hit hard enough. I wasn't fast enough. They said I didn't have what it took to be a champion. I like to be the underdog. That fires me up."
