Tim Bradley is supremely confident leading into the rematch with Manny Pacquiao

After defeating perennial pound for pound fighter Manny Pacquiao, WBO Junior Welterweight title holder Ruslan Provodnikov, and Mexican fight legend Juan Manuel Marquez in his last three outings, "The Desert Storm" Timothy Bradley is coming into his highly anticipated rematch with the Pacman as possibly one of the most confident fighters in boxing. "I have gained a lot of experience from my last two fights on HBO and HBO PPV, one in particular, the one against Marquez, who is a great champion and a great fighter, legendary...and the fight against Provodnikov, the Fight of the Year," claims the 30 year old undefeated champion.

"So I am a different fighter now. A different beast...a different animal this time around and I am going to prove it to the fans and everybody watching."

With a seemingly refocused Pacquiao, who claims to be dead set on proving that he still possesses the killer instinct of the "Pac Monster" circa 2008, Bradley remains adamant in assuring a victory on April 12th.

"We have a game plan and I am going to go out there and execute my game plan and that's that. Whether I fight in the trenches or a war, or I go outbox Manny Pacquiao, I will win no matter what. If I need to outbox the guy I know I have it in there."

"There is nothing I cannot do in the ring. I have the whole package. The only thing I may lack is, and I have fought a lot of great fighters, is power."

Despite having the athleticism, physical durability, and intestinal fortitude to compete with a any fighter at the elite level, does Bradley have enough power on his punches to command the respect of a motivated and tenacious Manny Pacquiao?

Tim truly believes that power will not be a factor for either fighter in the intriguing second fight with the Filipino icon.

"I know all about Manny. I went into the ring with him. I felt his best punches. He is a great fighter, but he's also mortal. I'm not intimidated by his power or his legend. When I fought Marquez, I knew my quickness would come into play. I set traps and used my quickness. I fought with intelligence. I used my pure boxing skills. Expect a gameplan that will offset Manny strengths as well on April 12th."

With the fight less than two weeks away, the current WBO title holder and pound for pound fighter sends a message to every fight fan who still isn't convinced that he won the first outing with Pacquiao and isn't capable of winning the rematch.

"I got the win but it felt like I lost because I didn't get any credit from the fans and it's important to get the credit from the fans. I feel I need to showcase myself and win by a large margin. I have a lot to prove in this fight, and number one is that the first fight was not a fluke."

"Both of us actually have a lot to prove in this fight. Pacquiao really needs to win this fight. If he loses, his career might be over. But I really need to win because of the controversy surrounding the first fight. I know I beat him already, but this time I need to beat him more decisively so the fans can finally give me the credit for it."

"Everyone knows what Manny Pacquiao is going to do in this fight. He's going to try to bring the fight to me, and I'm going to show everyone it is not going to work. I will win the rematch with Manny on April 12th."
