Pacquiao thrives vs younger, undefeated fighters – Bradley

BRISBANE, Australia – A familiar face showed up at the lobby of Hotel Sofitel Brisbane here, where Manny Pacquiao and the rest of his team, family and friends are billeted for Sunday’s big event.

Set to work the TV broadcast of Pacquiao’s bout with Jeff Horn as an analyst, former welterweight champion Timothy Bradley had a short chat with the Philippine media about his thoughts on his ex-rival’s upcoming assignment.

Bradley just doesn’t see Pacquiao losing to the younger, inexperienced Horn at the 52,000-seat Suncorp Stadium.

The reason, according to Bradley, is that Pacquiao rises to the occasion each time he fights younger opponents who have yet to taste defeat in the ring.

“Manny always challenges the younger guys, undefeated ones,” said the three-time Pacquiao foe.

Bradley himself lost his undefeated record to Pacquiao in their 2014 rematch—his first defeat in 33 fights. That was a couple of fights after the American scored a controversial win over Pacquiao in 2012.
