New, comments

Timothy Bradley has been in the ring twice with Manny Pacquiao, but he thinks Chris Algieri can give Manny problems on Saturday night.

1) DOES ALGIERI DESERVE THIS OPPORTUNITY VS PACQUIAO?

"Most definitely. Algieri earned his spot."

2) HOW DO YOU SEE PACQUIAO GOING INTO THIS FIGHT?

"Pacquiao today is more of thinking Pacquiao. Since his knockout loss to Marquez he doesn't come in reckless or with a gang of shots. He is thinking about his plan of attack."

3) WHAT WILL BE ALGIERI'S CONCERNS IN THE RING?

"You don't want to be against the ropes against Pacquiao. His footwork is like no other in boxing. He throws punches while he is moving."

4) WHAT SHOULD PACQUIAO BE CONCERNED ABOUT?

"I think after watching video tape of Algieri he's going to give Pacquiao a lot of problems. Algieri has excellent movement and range. If he is able to control distance inside the ring, it's a problem for Pacquiao."

Pacquiao vs. Algieri happens Saturday, November 22 live on pay-per-view beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.
