Manny Pacquiao faces Timothy Bradley tomorrow night on HBO pay-per-view, and today the two fighters weighed in at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KO) came in at 147 pounds, the limit for his WBO welterweight title defense. Bradley (28-0, 12 KO) came in at 146 pounds, in his usual chiseled form.
When the two came together for their staredown, Bradley gave Pacquiao a strong glare, and Pacquiao smiled and looked away. As Bradley continued to stare him down, Manny just went on with his business. It was a short photo opportunity.
Before the fighters hit the scales, Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach said that Bradley "won't win one round." Bradley's trainer Joel Diaz responded, "I'm glad that he thinks that way. I'm glad that he thinks that Tim don't hit hard. ... Anything that Freddie says does not bother me whatsoever. I've got my plan, I'm very focused. ... It's not gonna be their way, it's gonna be my way."
