Pacquiao under pressure to deliver as critics believe he has lost edge.
Manny Pacquiao will face Tim Bradley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night looking to avenge his controversial loss when these two met back in 2012.
Despite experts and viewers believing that the Filipino fighting veteran had won the fight, Bradley won a controversial split decision which inevitably ignited a debate within the boxing community which in turn triggered public demand for a rematch.
To his credit, Bradley has given Pacquiao that chance for revenge by agreeing to the rematch but believes that it will only help him confirm that he is indeed the better fighter.
‘Desert Storm’ insists that Pacquiao has since lost his edge in the ring and isn’t as hungry as he used to be, but the 35-year-old is ready to prove his doubters wrong with a polished performance on Saturday night.
While it will undoubtedly be a thrilling encounter between two stars who have much to prove, Pacquiao will be under pressure to return to his best as Bradley will be looking to secure a more convincing win this time round.
