Pacquiao vs Bradley Video: Fighters Ready, But Mayweather Shadow Casts Pall


Here's a quick SB Nation promo for the June 9 fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, which discusses, as most things like this will, Floyd Mayweather as much as the upcoming fight.

Bradley seems totally unconcerned about anything to do with Mayweather, which is good. "The fight will never happen," he says of Pacquiao vs Mayweather (or Mayweather vs Pacquiao, whatever), echoing what many of us have come to believe.

Top Rank officials act like they think it's possible. Manny's team says, "Well if it happens..." But let's be serious. It should have happened three times over by now. It hasn't. Is there any real hope it will before it's as close to irrelevant as it can possibly become?

"Every big fight in the history of boxing has happened," trainer Freddie Roach says. "I hope they do it before it's too late."

If you assume it will happen, then I guess the question is, with modern comparisons, whether or not it's Tyson-Holyfield or Mayweather-Mosley. Late, or too damn late.
