Pac  vs. Bradley 2

If Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley end up fighting again, there will likely be a wide range of contrasting predictions regarding the rematch.

Bradley upset Pacquiao via a controversial split-decision in June of 2012 and each man appears to have a vested interest in another encounter.

During a swing through the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas earlier this week, I spoke with trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr., who seems honestly intrigued by a rematch scenario.

“If you would have gave it to Pacquiao, there would have been no problems,” Mayweather Sr. said when reflecting on the first fight. “If you gave it Bradley, it shouldn’t have been no problem. Looked pretty close to me.”

Pacquiao was stopped by Juan Manuel Marquez in December of 2012 and bounced back with a convincing unanimous decision over Brandon Rios this past November.

In the wake of that victory, Mayweather Sr. was quick to criticize Rios, as he attempted downplay Pacquiao’s victory, but he has since seemed to have a small change of heart.

“Pacquiao looked real good to me against Rios,” Mayweather Sr. stated. “He looked good. I’m not saying he was a Mayweather, but he looked good.”

And if the rematch does come off, Mayweather Sr. feels Pacquiao might find a way to snatch the victory.

“Pacquiao might pull that off,” Mayweather Sr. claimed. “I’m just saying, from the first fight, it depends on what you thought about it, but I just see a different fight.”
