"Absolutely not. Absolutely not. No, I don't. Floyd Mayweather is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the game," stated undefeated WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley when asked if he thought a second win over Manny Pacquiao would be enough to stake his claim as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Although a victory over Pacquiao on April 12 would be the third time in the past 2 years that he beat a top pound-for-pound fighter, as far as Bradley is concerned, it's still not enough to match the accomplishments that Mayweather has achieved over the course of his 18 years as a professional.
"He's been in the game, I don't know, over 17, 18 years. He's been undefeated; he's been a champion for numerous amount of years. I have not yet accomplished what Mayweather has been able to do, so by no means can I say I'm the best pound-for-pound fighter in the game even though I could have a win over Marquez and Manny Pacquiao; 2 over Manny Pacquiao," Bradley explained during a recent conversation with FightHype.com. "The only way that I can say that I'm the best in the world is fighting Mayweather and beating him."
