Las Vegas, Nevada – Timothy Bradley did what no other boxer has been able to do against Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and that is beat him.
Bradley won the WBO Welterweight title from Pacquiao in what is a controversial split decision from the judges. The judges scoring cards gave the fight to Bradley on a score of 115-113 with the third judge giving the fight to Pacquiao 115-113. Apparently, Pacquiao relied on his power to beat down younger boxer but that tactic failed.
Bradley relied on proper boxing form and that carried the day for him – despite the fact that Pacquiao landed nearly one hundred more punches in the match! After the fight Bradley stated, “He hurt me a couple of times with his left; he’s a beast.” Showing the true heart of a champion, Bradley had actually sprained his ankle in round two and had the choice of withdrawing or going toe-to-toe with the champion given his injury limited his ability to move.
