Pacquiao vs Bradley II: Timothy Bradley says two good feet will lead to victory

New, comments

Timothy Bradley believes he showed what he can do with two good feet when he beat Juan Manuel Marquez, and he'll show it again against Manny Pacquiao on April 12.

Marquez had to KO Pacquiao to get a definite result. Is that what you need? Why and how do you accomplish this? How do you beat Pacquiao?

"Marquez was in a little bit of a bigger hole when he knocked him out. He had fought him three times and was not able to secure a win in any of the first three fights. He had tried everything and had failed so a knockout was the only way he would win.

"I am in a slightly different position than Marquez was. I have already beat Pacquiao once and that was on my first try. I don't think I have to knock him out to get a definite result but if the knockout presents itself I will take advantage of it.

"The first fight I injured my foot in the second round and by the fourth round my ankle on my other foot was also messed up. The second half of the fight I was coming on strong with two bad feet. I didn't have the movement that I normally have and I was out-working him. I was fighting all three minutes of every round and not just the last thirty seconds of every round.

"This second fight against Manny Pacquiao I will pick up right where I left off the first fight. This will just be rounds thirteen through twenty four. I was able to show my boxing ability against Marquez with two good feet so this will be no different. I will be faster than Pacquiao, I will have better defense than Pacquiao, I will be hungrier than Pacquiao.

"I have been in the ring with Pacquiao so I know exactly what to expect. There are a few adjustments that I will make and with two good feet under me and at the end of the night I will be victorious again!!!

"AND STILL..."
