Not if Bradley wins. Atlas has him focused again and not out there throwing wild hooks trying to be a KO specialist. IF he beats Pacman, there are a bunch of good fights that can be made. Even with Mayweather gone, that WW division is still stacked.

I agree with coup, if Bradley wins. I think that he can win this fight, but he has to fight smart. There are quite a few good fights in this division.

Yeah, Bradley has a good shot. Crawford, Thurman, Swift, Porter, Vargas, shit even Broner are all in that WW class.

I would say yes, this fight is worth watching.

In both fights, Bradley suffered leg injuries that prevented him from being mobile, and Pacquiao could still not stop him.

This is just from memory, in their second bout, Bradley was doing well in the first 3 to 4 rounds, and then he tore a muscle in his leg which changed the momentum of the fight to Pacquiaos favor.

Now we have a healthy Bradley, with a trainer that has a game plan for him. I saw a video of Atlas training Bradley using angles, using lateral movement, and circling to his left, keeping away from Manny's left hand. There are no surprises, Bradley knows what it is like to face Pacquiao, he will not be bewildered by his speed and work rate.

eh Alonso! It's Pacquiao were talking about right? Well if it is than no it's never a waste of time to see him fight. Pacman is a legend that revived boxing since he stepped in through the limelight. This could be his last fight so this fight is something special especially with Bradley whom he faced 2x already and is with a new trainer In Teddy Atlas whom his had grudges with Pacquiao ever since so yea this fight is a must watch!

normally I would never miss a Pacquioa fight but i was not enthused about watching this one and also I am not impressed with the cost of Pay Per view anymore. Not sure if I am changing or has there been too many changes in boxing that lost my interest.
