UFC president Dana White is a former boxer (and boxercise instructor) and he remains a big fan of the sport. When he was asked to offer his predictions for this Saturday's Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley bout at a media scrum following UFC 146 he couldn't resist sharing his opinion.
Fight Hub TVwas there and recorded White's break down of the bout. A transcript of White's thoughts is after the jump.
White: Manny Pacquiao: speed, power, everything else. Bradley's a tough kid, man. This is a tougher fight than people think it is. This is a tough one to break down. Bradley's tough man but I think Manny's going to out-speed him, out- power him, might even stop him.
Interviewer: He's a live underdog though?
White: Oh hell yeah. Tim Bradley's no joke. That kid's tough. I like him. I'm excited for that fight.
24/7 tries to give you the illusion that Manny has all these other things going on and he's distracted. ... It's almost like they're portraying him now...he's not that fun-loving Manny Pacquiao anymore. Talking about him having troubles with his wife, all his businesses are going out of business, he's becoming a preacher because God won't even talk to him.
