LOS ANGELES, Calif. – WBO welterweight titleholder Timothy Bradley was the image of confidence at his media workout on Thursday (Friday morning PH time) at the Fortune Gym in Los Angeles. The Fortune Gym, coincidentally, is the venture of Justin Fortune, the strength and conditioning coach of Manny Pacquiao, whom he will face for a second time on April 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Rather than hold back, as is customary in these promotional events, the 30-year-old Bradley (31-0, 12 knockouts) made a point of it to show his best stuff on the pads with trainer Joel Diaz, teeming with confidence as his coach barked “Where you going Manny?”
Pacquiao had held his open workout the day before just down the street at the Wild Card Gym.
Bradley, who has won titles in two divisions, remains hungry to prove himself after being booed after winning his last three fights against Pacquiao, Ruslan Provodnikov and Juan Manuel Marquez. A decisive win over Pacquiao would go a long way towards gaining him the respect he so dearly seeks. – Rappler.com
