Since the Pacquiao vs Bradley Fight is set to happen on June 9, 2012 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, their official weigh-in is also being looked forward. Finally, the most awaited Pacquiao vs Bradley Official Weigh-in happened earlier today and it was really thrilling. As the two boxers stepped on the scales this afternoon at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, in preparation for their big pay-per-view match coming up on Saturday night, crowds gave a loud roar of cheer for their favorite boxer.
At the end of the weigh-in, it turned out that Manny Pacquiao weighed 147 lbs, while Timothy Bradley weighed 146 lbs. If you have just seen the weigh-in, Bradley seemed to be very confident as he stepped on the scales first and looked absolutely jacked, as he always does. He weighed in under the limit, and was all quiet intensity, and you could see him brimming over with confidence and focus. As for Pacquiao, on the other hand, he went on the scales next and you can hear a loud howling sound from the crowd. It was very interesting to see Pacquiao weighing more than his opponent for a change. But it was also interesting to see a more muscular fighter than Pacquiao, as Bradley is just cut and is muscles all over. You can really see the advantage of Bradley in terms of body structure during that time.
You will notice how Bradley tried to stare bullets through Pacquiao as the two fighters squared off with one another. However, Pacquiao seemed to be unaffected on what is happening as he was simply smiling and laughing, and wasn’t getting into any of those antics. When Pacquiao was asked as to why he is laughing, he simply answered, “I’m happy because God is with me.” He also said that he was confident to win.
Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley has an upcoming boxing fight this upcoming Saturday, June 9, 2012, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Since Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is the one involved in this fight, world boxing fans are looking forward for an action-packed and exciting fight.
As we wait for the mega fight to come, we are also trying to check on the preparations that the two great world boxers make, especially on their physical preparations. In a report, it was said that Manny Pacquiao’s zealous religious awakening and Timothy Bradley’s questionably arrogant rematch poster aside, Saturday’s mega-fight is laced with enough actual in0ring drama to satisfy both the hardcore and casual boxing fan.
Most of the boxing experts and sports analysts consider this fight as one of Pacquiao’s sternest tests since Bradley could certainly be Pacquiao’s most obscure opponent in recent memory. In Bradley, on the other hand, Pacquiao is facing a prime, two-time unified junior welterweight champion who is undefeated in title fights and the like.
As you can see, Pacquiao is definitely smaller to Bradley with only a height of 5’6.5”. This will not be the case against Bradley. Pacquiao will then move into the fight with a half-inch height advantage, and Bradley will be moving up in weight. Both men have a comparable reach thus, they have equal chances on hitting each other. It is just in the matter of the strategies and techniques to use in order for one of them to score higher than the other. In order to control the fight’s tempo and ring geography, Bradley will need to employ his stiff jab early and with conviction. Let’s just see what happens in the upcoming Pacquiao Vs Bradley Fight Live.

Pacquiao vs. Bradley fight is the next boxing event to watch. It is scheduled to happen on June 9th this year with the pound for pound boxer Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and the undefeated Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley are on the main card. The venue for the match will be at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. There’s no specific fight title yet billed for this match up.
When I’ve heard about the news the fight, my first question that pops on my mind was “Who’s Bradley?” I honestly don’t know this guy and I think he will eat dust against the Filipino champ. That was my first impression and maybe my last. I believe that Manny is too much for him and despite his undefeated record, it will be useless against the strong left and right combinations of the Pacman.
However, some still think that Bradley got a shot of upset that might lead to his popularity but his previous controversial fights tell everything that might happen on Pacquiao-Bradley fight night and I’m expecting that it will be worst for him.
Well let just watch the match on the said date and let see if the match up will deliver a great boxing entertainment that we expect. I just can’t stop myself from comparing it to Mayweather-Cotto match but I still don’t want to make any conclusions until the June 9 match end.
