Tonight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV, Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KOs) will defend his WBO Welterweight title against the current WBO Junior Welterweight Champion Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley (28-0-1 NC, 12 KOs).
Tonight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV, pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao will defend his WBO Welterweight title against the undefeated 140 pound champion Timothy Bradley in the 12 round main event of a special Top Rank/HBO PPV presentation.
Few fighters have had the opportunity to spar with Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley but the Pugilist KOrner found a jr welterweight contender who has done just that.
Last summer, famed fight trainer Freddie Roach stated publicly that Amir Khan (26-2, 18 KOs) would fight one more bout at 140 pounds before moving up in weight to pursue a possible match-up with pound for pound star Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26 KOs) in the 147 pound weight division.
The odds in Las Vegas are 4 to 1 or greater that Canelo Alvarez will defeat "Sugar" Shane Mosely but boxing trainer and insider Miguel Diaz sees things differently.
Timothy Bradley's trainer, Joel Diaz, constantly implores his fighters to stay focused on the tasks at-hand and to not let distractions prevent them from losing focus.
Every once in a while in the sport of boxing, the promoters and matchmakers put together a very fan friendly match-up which excites the senses and captures the imagination of even the harshest of critics.
