IN MY OWN OPINION, what turns me off about this fight while watching the L.A. Press Conference or even behind the scenes of there commercial is how SOFT with words and all around behavior these to show with each other. It almost made me forget that these 2 were actually going to fight each other the way they joke, Smile & laugh at ech other. I mean come on give me a break, i can't be the only one shaking my head at this. I mean somebody tell me, WHAT'S THE POINT OF FIGHTERS FIGHTING IF THEY LIKE EACH OTHER THIS MUCH. SAVE ALL THE RESPECT AFTER FIGHT, AFTER YOU SEE WHAT THE FIGHTER CAN DO. How does a guy like Bradley who's been known to be confident & to get under the skin of his opponents, all of a sudden be so warm hearted. It's like Joshua Clottey (remember him) all over again. These 2 can not even do a Stare Down without cracking a smile and laughing and thats pathetic. Now anything bad at this point to be said by either fighter is a contradiction because these two made it very well known that they "LIKE" each other... jeez, where Chisora - haye, Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Mayweather and plenty other mean fighters when you need em.

Speaking of Contradictions whats with the "Peoples Champion" Manny Pacquiao "The Man Who fights for the People before Money" all of a sudden be "the man that fights for Money before People". This guy headlines Yahoo news stating the reason the negotiations between him and Floyd fell apart was because Floyd gaurenteed him more money than he's ever made and ever will make in boxing and (alledgedly) not a penny more. Yet months prior went on record to say he'd fight him for a lesser share. He was even as bold to state that he would fight him for free.

Last but not least we have Freddie Roach being a week removed from basically calling this fight unworthy to now believing it's a "very good fight". I like Freddie & respect him as a trainer but never let money take your WORD away man. You Can still speak your mind about how you really feel and still sell the PPV just as well as you can by not.

This PPV is going to be a hard sell. For one, everyone was actually expecting Floyd and Manny to fight this time around, Bradley is like the guy who got asked to the prom at the last minute because the girl's original pick got sick.

No one outside of Palm Springs knows who Bradley is. Pacaquiao is coming off a lost to JMM and people are starting to realize that he is not as clean cut as he comes across and that perhaps he has been holding up the mega fight.

Arum is being exposed for the person he has always been. Just last week Ariza and Roach said that they were not inspired to fight Bradley and Pacquiao may have a hard time with motivation because Bradley is no better than their sparring partners.

Now all of a sudden Bradley is a threat, he poses as a problem and this will be a major challenge for team Pacquiao. Then of course you have the issue of Pacquiao retiring to be a full time Bible ambassador. There are too many versions to follow. I wonder why Pacquiao did not state all this stuff that was on his mind about Mayweather when it mattered. Its like he has grown a voice. Again a tough sell, I think a lot of people my bypass this fight even with a good undercard. I will say 800k buys for this fight and that is being generous. Is Pacquiao's cut going to be healed by then?
