American Timothy Bradley shared his opinion on the fight between his compatriot WBC and IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence and the legendary Filipino Manny Pacquiao. According to Timothy, Manny deliberately chose Errol as his rivals, so he feels that he is slightly superior to him.
“Pacquiao is one of those guys who pick their opponents. He agrees to fight an opponent over whom he has a slight advantage. I think, first of all, Manny thinks Spence is slower than him. Errol is taller and everyone considers him a favorite. He is young, puts pressure on his opponents until the very end of the fight and delivers a lot of punches.
I would not say that Pacquiao has not seen something like this before. Manny has speed, footwork, and moves well. I think he might upset Spence because Errol does what Pacquiao likes. Manny will work on the body and head. He is not going to sit and wait for his opportunity, but will throw out many combinations and thus control the course of the fight. Spence knows best about this.
When you go into a fight with Manny, you think you can block his blows, but you cannot block all the blows that he throws out. This guy is a phenomenon. Especially when it comes to kickbacks, footwork and hand speed. You also need to be careful with Pacquiao’s strength. His left hand is just a monster. So I think Manny has a chance to end the fight with a knockout, ”said Bradley.
Recall that Errol Spence and Manny Pacquiao will fight on August 21 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
