Pacquiao vs Bradley Video: Manny Pacquiao's Greatest Hits

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

It's about that time to get into full swing for the hype period leading up to the June 9 fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley on HBO pay-per-view from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, so here's a look back at Manny Pacquiao's greatest hits from HBO Sports.

Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KO) will be facing his first opponent under the age of 30 since he beat Miguel Cotto in 2009, which is an interesting sidenote, I think, not that age mattered much for his last opponent, Juan Manuel Marquez. But then Marquez is himself a Hall of Fame-bound champion, and we've also yet to see Bradley (28-0, 12 KO) beat someone on this level. To say that even a declining Pacquiao isn't at least a step above the likes of Devon Alexander, Lamont Peterson, Kendall Holt, and Junior Witter would be foolish.

As much as I think this is a tough test for Manny on paper, I also think it's a big, big step up for Bradley -- maybe too much of a step up. We'll learn how much "special" Tim Bradley has in a month.
