Bradley : Pacquiao is afraid of me
Source : AKTV
Timothy Bradley is getting tired of waiting for Manny Pacquiao’s decision.
Pacquiao hasn’t made up his mind yet who among Bradley, superb Mexican counter-puncher Juan Manuel Marquez and rejuvenated Puerto Rican banger Miguel Cotto will be his dancing partner on November 10 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Apparently getting antsy and insulted by the delay, Bradley took a dig on Pacquiao’s bravado, telling Leighton Ginn of The Desert Sun that the Filipino is afraid to face him in a rematch.
Bradley had beaten Pacquiao on a shocking 12-round split decision last June 9 and should they meet again, the unbeaten American vowed he will settle the issue once and for all.
Bradley said he was deeply bothered by his leg injury and if he doesn’t sustain the same in a rematch, he will “beat him worse.”
Marquez is also high on Pacquiao’s list because of the Mexican’s tested drawing power in pay-per-view sales.
Bradley is an easier foe, according to men close to Pacquiao, but he can’t draw a fly.
The Pacquiao-Bradley fight only generated 700,000 buys, figures that don’t compare to what Pacquiao has posted the past several years by meeting marquee names like Oscar De La Hoya, Miguel Cotto and Shane Mosley.
Bob Arum told InterAKTV Wednesday that he expects to finalize everything with Pacquiao by Monday.
