Pacquiao vs Bradley II: Harold Lederman on Manny Pacquiao

HBO unofficial ringside scorer and former judge Harold Lederman gives his thoughts on Manny Pacquiao heading into Saturday's rematch with Timothy Bradley.

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

Harold Lederman on Manny Pacquiao:

"Manny Pacquiao is a very, very good fighter. I love the way he moves, I love the way he turns opponents. He's got that southpaw style. He's got a terrific right hand for a southpaw, and most southpaws don't have a great hand. Manny does. He can knock you out with a right hook. And of course he's got that vicious straight left hand.

"We talk about his knockout power. I think he can put you to sleep without a doubt. I thought he looked terrific his last fight against Brandon Rios. I thought he looked terrific when he fought Timothy Bradley the first time. I mean, I gave him 11 out of the 12 rounds. I thought he clearly won the fight. I'm looking for a really terrific performance from Pacquiao, who's looking for revenge from a very questionable decision the first time he fought Timothy Bradley."
