PACQUIAO PROMOTES FIGHT WITH BRADLEY AS HE TALKS ABOUT RETIREMENT
Fri, 24 Feb 2012 08:43 PM EST

Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley Jr. both realize nearly every boxing fan wishes Floyd Mayweather Jr. Had been standing next to Pacquiao at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Tuesday. Basketball spreads

Pacquiao and Bradley are getting a 1st start on the promotional circuit for their welterweight bout June 9 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas. Even whilst the Filipino congressman and his unbeaten competitor posed for pictures at the historical Hollywood hideaway, Pacquiao and his camp perceived Mayweather’s absence looms around the proceedings. Basketball odds

Pacquiao ( 54-3-2, 38 KOs ) achieves he’ll have to do lots of promoting to get aficionados interested in a fight against Bradley, a 140-pound champion from Palm Springs, CA, who hasn’t ever been in a small part of the focus that follows Pacquiao around the globe.

Pacquiao will ensure every fan knows all around Bradley (28-0, 12 KOs), praising him as a game opponent who take pleasure in a good action fight as much as he does – another indirect swipe at the defense-oriented Mayweather.

“It’s reat to be fighting a fighter who is undefeated and not concerned about losing that zero on his record,” declared Freddie Roach, Pacquiao’s longtime tutor.

Yet Roach regularly showed tiny interest in a bout with Bradley in recent years, mentioning Bradley’s near anonymity and limited knockout power. Although Bradley’s record makes him a consequentially worthy opponent, he only pulled into prime position for the bout last year when he joined promoter Bob Arum’s Top Rank alongside Pacquiao.

Pacquiao is “probably the best fighter in the history of boxing,” claimed Bradley, a physical boxer well known for using his shaved head as a battering ram to get within on his opponents. “He’s a fantastic role model, a great guy, but Manny Pacquiao has reigned for an extended period of time, and I actually feel just like I’m the new face of boxing.”

Boxing could need a new face as quickly as next year. Mayweather has fought sparingly in his 30’s, and Pacquiao announces he’ll consider retirement in Nov. after his next 2 bouts.

Pacquiao adduces a replenished spiritual fervor for his attraction in retirement, announcing he’s no longer comfortable pounding on his contestants while winning his last fifteen fights. Roach claimed Pacquiao’s last training camp “fell apart” in its final days because of numerous diversions, resulting in a lackluster effectiveness in a narrow victory over Juan Manuel Marquez.

Pressed for details about the breakdown in negotiations with Mayweather, Pacquiao said that he was pleased to fight for a 50-50 split of all cash from what’s sure to be the richest fight in boxing history. Pacquiao recounted his phone conversation with Mayweather a few weeks back, with negotiations falling apart after.

“I was in the Philippines, and I told him, ‘We must to make this fight happen,” Pacquiao said.”I said I might consent to a 50-50 (split), and he said, ‘Oh, I’ll give you a $40 million guarantee, and no pay-per-view. I’ll take all of the pay-per-view.’ I don’t accept that offer. It’s kind of embarrassing to me. It’s trying to take advantage of me. He doesn’t want to fight.”

That $40 million may seem like a fortune, but a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight is expected to provide more than $150 million in pay-per-view proceeds alone. Mayweather’s camp rejects Mayweather made such an offer, but the verbal sniping likely won’t let up the week after next when Mayweather starts plugging his May 5 bout against Miguel Cotto.
