Why Bet On Manny Pacquiao -230 to Beat Timothy Bradley
Bradley could have trouble dealing with Pacman’s speed. In the first fight, Pacquiao’s speed dominated Bradley with sharp straight lefts. In the second fight, Bradley tried to dictate the pace by moving in to Pacquiao. All Pacman did was side-step and land combinations onto Bradley’s chin and body. No matter what Bradley tries, Pacman might be too fast for Bradley to get out of the way in time for Pac’s counter punches.
Why Bet On Timothy Bradley +190 to Beat Manny Pacquiao
New trainer Teddy Atlas has made Timothy Bradley a much better fighter. Atlas took the place of Bradley’s former trainer because Bradley didn’t feel that he was getting any better. Atlas appears to have immediately paid dividends for Bradley. Versus Rios, he wasn’t moving in the same way that he was against Pacquio. Bradley appeared to be looking for his spots before throwing punches. Plus, the spacing between his feet was much better in the fight against Rios than it was in his previous fights.
Expert Pick & Final Fight Prediction
The second fight between these 2 took place way back in 2014. A lot can happen to a boxer in 2 years. Manny Pacquaio has fought only twice since then. His win over Chris Algieri last year was nice. But, Pacman didn’t show any of his usual hand speed in the fight versus Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Bradley fought a much slower Brandon Rios and won via a Floyd type style in his last bout. Bradley had a much livelier bounce to his step. Most importantly, his footwork improved tremendously in the fight against Rios so that his shots were much crisper and delivered with more power than in previous fights. Although Pac remains one of the top fighters in the world until someone proves otherwise, Bradley is hungry to take his place among boxing’s elite.
I think that Bradley beats Manny Pacquiao on Saturday via a unanimous decision.
