Pacquiao vs Bradley II: Manny Pacquiao talks Mayweather posters, fight week, hardest hitters

Manny Pacquiao says that he's not personally bothered by the Floyd Mayweather fight posters that are all over the MGM Grand, but he feels it's a bit of an embarrassment for his promoter.

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

Manny on fight week

"I'm excited for Saturday. I'm ready, it's all set. This fight is very important. Very important to my career. ... We have to do this press conference, and tomorrow is interviews with the networks, and Friday's the weigh-in. I'm excited for that."

Manny on making weight

"We eat regularly. What we eat in training, same thing. After the weigh-in, same thing, because we're not losing weight. ... Before, when I was fighting at 122, 112, I had to reduce."

"My reaction was that -- you know, not for me, but for the promoter, it's kind of an embarrassment for the promoter of this fight, which is Top Rank. I have no comment about it. ... I don't care about that. It won't bother me. It depends on my promoter and the hotel."

Who hit him the hardest?

"You know, Cotto and Clottey, he's heavy-handed. He was heavy-handed, but he didn't want to throw. But he's heavy-handed. Clottey is heavy-handed."
