Manny Pacquiao and Timoth Bradley outdid themselves with a wild 12-round war. Bradley seemed to be looking for the knockout early, and came shockingly close to getting it, rocking Pacquiao with an overhand right in the fourth round that lifted the Filipino off his feet. Pacquiao, however, was resilient, and outboxed Bradley for the middle rounds of the bout until Bradley's fatigue allowed him the openings he needed to start teeing off on Bradley against the ropes.
Check out the full fight highlights below.
Bradley's defense was impressive, and he was giving Pacquiao trouble with his body work, counters, and always excellent lateral movement. Pacquiao's combination punching was the real star of the show, as well as a consistently effective right hook over the top of Bradley's jab, a counter that Bradley made great use of in their first fight. You can see in the video that, as the fight went on, Pacquiao established his dominance in a way he wasn't even able to do in he and Bradley's first fight.
In the end, Manny Pacquiao proved that while his speed and athleticism may not be what it once was, his long experience in the sport makes him dangerous still. Pacquiao is still great.
