Timothy Bradley prepares for biggest fight of his young career

The fight on every boxing fans’ mind has yet to happen. A showdown between Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather and Manny Pacaquiao is currently off the table, while Mayweather serves his 3-month jail sentence for domestic battery. For now, fight fanatics will have to settle for the next best thing – a bout between Pacquaio and undefeated welterweight Timothy Bradley. Bradley, who is 28, is undefeated in an as many fights. His penchant for punching will be one of Pacquiao’s toughest tests yet. Bradley, still a heavy underdog by most accounts, has closed his camp and is ready for his Saturday night fight in Las Vegas. BoxingScene.com reports:

Tim Bradley knew from the moment he signed to face Manny Pacquiao that he would land on the B-side of the promotion. It never meant that he was going to take a back seat and let the show be all about his more popular and accomplished opponent.

Throughout the promotion leading up to the June 9 event, Bradley has thoroughly embraced the extra attention paid to his career and to his every move. The unbeaten Californian remains a considerable underdog to unseat the welterweight titlist and pound-for-pound star, but the lack of confidence exuded by others only further motivates Bradley.

“Every little thing motivates me,” Bradley (28-0, 12KO) said while speaking with his reporters on the scene for his grand arrival at the MGM Grand on Tuesday afternoon among a throng of fans in attendance. “If you talk about me, I’m set out to prove that you’re wrong.”

Bradley has repeatedly upset the odds on his ascension through the 140 lb. ranks, dating back to May ’08 when he traveled abroad to the UK to unseat then-titlist Junior Witter in his backyard.
