In a matter of minutes, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao will get a chance to regain the WBO welterweight title that he never should have lost. Of course, corrupt/inept judge CJ Ross and another inept judge robbed Pacquiao of a clear-cut victory, which was a gigantic black eye for a sport plagued by scandal for years. Soon thereafter, he got knocked out by chief rival Juan Manuel Marquez, causing boxing fans worldwide to wonder if Manny had anything left.
Since then, Pacquiao(55-5-2) defeated Brandon Rios, and is now back to face Bradley (31-0, 1NC), who was depressed after winning the title. Unfortunately, I think he’ll have even more reason to feel down after this one, because Manny will be angry. He can afford to be this way against Bradley, who does not have a knockout punch, in my opinion. I feel like it may end in the 10th with a knockout, but I have my doubts. That’s why I believe Pacquiao will dominate, but won’t get the finish.
Prediction: Pacquiao via unanimous, 117-111, 118-110, 118-110.
