In my opinion, Manny Pacquiao gave very nice veterans play with Timothy Bradley. Even Bradley was shocked that he was announced as the New Champion of WBO welterweight title fight at MGM Grand Garden Arena on June 9, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In round 1 to 5, it is clear that Pacquiao was dominating the game over Bradley. Then why at the sudden he was not aggressive up to the last round. Review the first five round and you can tell what can happen when Many Pacquiao continue to play like that. Then analyze the six up to the last 12 round and it shows that Many Pacquiao was on defense and letting Timothy Bradley to work out up to the end game. You will not see the footwork of Pacquiao from six to the last 12 round because when his footwork is on conditions his punches explode.
Pacquiao said in the interview that he was not hurt by the punch of Bradley. In my opinion, Pacquiao can manage the game without being knocked out.
I like the attitude of Pacquiao when he respects the decisions and knows how to give credits.
I consider the New Champion to be worthy of the championship belt. It is all about winning in the end. Timothy Bradley shows his effort and aggressiveness up to the last part of the round. The last three rounds can influence and give x-factor to the score card and Bradley had that moment. My opinion is just an opinion. Like Pacquiao said let’s give respect and credit to the new WBO welterweight champion.
If Manny Pacquiao plan to lose then why?
Boxing is business and more games mean more money. Business and people pays for entertainment. Sometimes the people who step on the ring are not themselves who is playing boxing.
What make a difference?
Let your opponent win and of course you lose. While losing sometimes teach you a lessons that you really don’t have to give up on purpose.
