Hmm. I still need to rewatch the bradley fight. When i first saw it i thought Manny got the clear decision but Tim's credit he did survive and i was streaming it on shitty quality so its still up in the air, i havent cared enough to watch it HD yet. I think i may have tried by i fell asleep.
But Bradley and Marquez ppv did 375k-400k veiws, which isnt special but it is important since Pac and Rios ppv did only 500k and may even be lower. a Pacquiao vs Bradley fight will probably keep the number consistent with 500k the variable is Bradley, which i think has added a good amount of stock to his name for the rematch; That Marquez win was big, and it was a blessing in disguise for Pacquiao. The fact is it was close, his ankles were messed up, and apparently Pac could have done better; So there's a cliff hanger to the fight with the decision....I want to see a rematch between the two, but selling it is the focal point which i believe is easier than the Marquez fight at this point.
Marquez doesn't seem like he wants to get punched in the face by Pacquiao no more, he doesn't a broken nose or a cut up face again for the millions, even if he could get 1 punch KO with a less wild Pacquiao. If he would rather face a pillow fisted Bradley whose punches he could walk through for another PPV paycheck, thats all him. Maybe he hasn't spent all his money from his last fights so he's not so desperate, but he will be soon, or he's just waiting for a bigger offer.
What i think will happen. Sorry for my scattered thoughts but when i imagine now is next being Pacquiao vs Bradley 2. Pacquiao should be taking that this time, i think Bradley is more damaged goods than Pacquiao. Convincing win, then either Marquez vs Bradley 2 or go straight to Pacquiao vs Marquez 5. I think only after they both beat bradley in a rematch they should meet up again, highest Paychecks for both at that point.
IF and big IF GBP and TR do business to make a fight again, It most likely be Mayweather vs Pacquiao or Bradley only if Bradley isnt a free agent by then. And even if he is and he lost to Pac and Marquez in the rematch it wouldnt matter because he got the win over them its only value is to show the difference in styles if Mayweather were to Dominate Bradley (the guy who took W over both PAc and Marquez)....2014 will be very very interesting!!
Couldn't agree more with this statement. I'm staaarting to get the idea that this is why Juan is "refusing" to fight Pac again. He made his statement in the 4th, so in his mind, there's no need to revisit the situation...unless the money's right. Again, I've been hearing about this "$15M", but I'm starting to wonder why he hasn't budged...maybe because we're seeing how Manny's money has really been "paid out" over the years. As you mentioned, Juan's face looked NOTHING like it did after 4 Pac fights, after he fought Bradley.

I swear I feel like I am on boxingscene.com with that statement. Was JMM not handling Pac, did he not knock him down and the second round (or was it the 3rd) round? Why do people act like Pac was just railroading JMM before the knockout. Nevermind that JMM outsmarted Manny into that knockout punch, never mind that he was looking for that punch the entire fight. The only thing that will stand out in their 4 fights is not thar BS you just posted, but Manny taking a fucking nap in the 6 round. Its boxing people get punched in the face. Danny Garcia looked like shit after his fight with Zab, Floyd looked like shit after his fight with Augustus and Cotto. Its boxing, Manny looked like shit after the Margarito and Cotto fight. Bradly looked like shit after the Ruslan fight.
That pillow fist Bradley beat the hard hitting Manny. And Manny's punches did not seem to hurt Bradley too bad. I love how fans discredit every boxer that Manny has lost to. The guy is God and he isn't that great. This is why I hate Manny is because of his fucking fans
Juan was handling Pac in all 4 fights (in certain rounds), but he took a lot of punishment to do so. People are letting that 1 punch KO ruin their perception, of what was really
happening in those fights. Pac DID railroad Juan before the 6th round KO, regardless of the 3rd round knockdown, Juan was on his to getting stopped before he stopped Manny. You're right, it is boxing an people do get punched in the face, but most guys don't fight each other 4 or more times either, so maybe he is getting tired of those stinging left hands that come faster and faster in each fight. Who knows...
