Pacquiao vs Bradley II: Harold Lederman on Timothy Bradley

"Hey, Harold!" is back, as the veteran former judge and HBO unofficial scorer and commentator discusses Timothy Bradley's style and chances this Saturday.

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

Harold Lederman on Timothy Bradley:

"Timothy Bradley's a very dangerous guy. Dangerous in that his style, he leans in. I think he's very reminiscent of Evander Holyfield, who was always accused of butting his opponents. Timothy Bradley can butt ya. That's a bad place to be. You don't want to get split wide open and fight with blood pouring into your eyes.

"Certainly, I think Timothy Bradley's gonna try to box a little more. He's a very, very good boxer. We saw that in the fight with Ruslan Provodnikov, we also saw that he boxed really nicely in the fight with Juan Manuel Marquez. So, I think that he can come back, possibly change his style from the first Manny Pacquiao fight, show us a little bit of his boxing ability. He is a good puncher, he does come over the top with a right hand. He's certainly capable of beating a southpaw by throwing right hand leads. I think it's going to be a very competitive fight, but after the way Pacquiao won the first fight, I'd be amazed if Bradley wins this one."
