Timothy bradley i wouldn’t be surprised if Manny pacquiao manages to come out with his arm raised in his fight against Errol spence, next August 21, in Las Vegas.
“I favor Spence slightly, “he commented Bradley to SnowqueenLA. “But I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Pacquiao manages to get ahead in combat ”.
For the former world welterweight champion, the Filipino could have the advantage of all his previous bouts.

“It’s a great fight for Pacquiao”, Considered the American. “He always chooses who to fight and usually sees his advantages in order to be successful. I think look at Spence a little slower than the other fighters he has gotten into the ring with ”.
On the development of the fight, Bradley believes that the Filipino’s backlash could put people in serious trouble Spence, since it also has a style that can frustrate the North American a lot.
“Spence he does something that Pacquiao likes, he works hard and lowers his head to the middle ”, he analyzed. “Pacman will wait for his opportunity and Spence you need to understand that and be patient. Manny isn’t just going to counter him with great combinations and they won’t be able to block him. His speed and foot movements are going to frustrate a lot. Spence“.
Bradley lost his last fight as a professional to Pacquiao in 2016, when it did drop in the seventh and ninth episodes. But he was finally able to survive until the cards, which were unanimously bowed down by Manny.

“Pacquiao it is a phenomenon ”, he mentioned. “I understand that Spence is younger and that puts pressure on many who only believe that Pacquiao is already very veteran. But Errol knows how to throw a lot of punches and it is something that can complicate Pacquiao. In the end I think he can beat him ”.
