Pacquiao vs Bradley II: Manny doesn't expect Bradley to fight toe-to-toe

Alexis Cuarezma

Manny Pacquiao is looking for a measure of revenge against Timothy Bradley this weekend, but doesn't expect a toe-to-toe fight.

Manny Pacquiao is primed to prove that his hunger and desire are still there when he faces Timothy Bradley this Saturday night on HBO pay-per-view, but the Filipino legend does not expect that Bradley will meet him in a firefight or provide anything easy.

"I do not think Bradley will fight toe-to-toe with me either, so I will have to hunt him down," Pacquiao said. "I am prepared for that. I am not going for a knockout, but if the opportunity presents itself I am going for it this time."

... "We are focusing on being more aggressive and throwing a lot of punches and if the knockout comes, it comes. I just want to prove that I can have the hunger that it takes to get the job done."

Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KO) gives Bradley (31-0, 12 KO) great credit for out-boxing Juan Manuel Marquez last October, and it appears as though that's what he expects from "Desert Storm" this Saturday night, and not the arguably overeager Bradley of last March's war with Ruslan Provodnikov.

Do you think Manny's right about the style to expect from Bradley?
