Bradley aims for decisive win in rematch

Bradley aims for decisive win in rematch | ABS-CBN News.


MANILA, Philippines – Unbeaten American boxer Timothy Bradley Jr. will gun for a more decisive victory against Filipino ring icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao should their rematch push through later this year.

Bradley defeated Pacquiao via a highly controversial split decision last Saturday in Las Vegas, winning the World Boxing Organization welterweight crown in the process.

In an interview with RingTV, Bradley insisted he won the fight “fair and square” but said he will also have to settle some issues in the rematch.

“I’ve seen the tape. I won the fight, without a doubt,” he said.

“The judges got it right. They definitely got it right. We’re going to have the rematch, and we can settle it then,” Bradley added.

In a separate interview with Boxing Scene, he said that he “definitely” wants to fight Pacquiao again.

“I heard all the boos at the end of the fight, which is okay because we need to do this again. Let’s make this more decisive,” he said.

Bradley said he injured his left ankle after the second round, and his right ankle at some point during the middle rounds, which affected his mobility.

“It was painful, but I had to fight through all of that. Just wait until the rematch in November, when I have both of my ankles and both of my legs,” Bradley said. []

There is a rematch clause in the fight contract in case Bradley pulled off the upset, and the unbeaten boxer printed out promotional materials even before the first fight.

Following his victory, he confirmed that he will give Pacquiao a rematch.

“Absolutely, I gotta give Manny a rematch. I definitely have to give him a shot, to let him earn his title back from me. This is boxing, and we gotta do it again,” Bradley said.

But a rematch between Pacquiao and Bradley is not set in stone, especially after Top Rank chief executive Bob Arum filed a formal request with the Attorney General of Nevada to investigate the bout.

Two judges gave Bradley the win 115-113, while one scored it for Pacquiao, 115-113.

Most of the boxing media at ringside had Pacquiao winning the bout handily.
