- Ni RC -

MANILA, Philippines - Handang makipagsa­bayan si Filipino world welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao kay American challenger Timothy Bradley, Jr.

At inaasahan ni trainer Freddie Roach na magi­ging maaksyon ang natu­rang laban sa Hunyo 9 sa MGM Grand sa Las Vegas, Ne­vada.

“They are both explosive fighters and they’re going to to toe,” sabi ni Roach kina Pacquiao at Brad­ley. “That’s why I like this fight so much.”

Nakatakdang itaya ni Pac­quiao ang kanyang ha­wak na World Boxing Or­ganization (WBO) wel­ter­weight title laban kay Brad­ley, ang kasalukuyang WBO light welterweight titlist.

“It’s not an easy fight, but entertainment-wise, it’s one of the best fights we could ever have. We’ll see how good his (Bradley) chin really is,” dagdag ng five-time Trainer of the Year na si Roach.

Hindi naman magku­kum­piyansa ang 33-anyos na si Pacquiao laban sa 28-anyos na si Bradley sa ga­bi ng kanilang upakan.

"Tim Bradley is the kind of fighter you cannot un­derestimate," wika ng Fili­pino world eight-division cham­pion sa American chal­lenger. "He loves to fight toe to toe and that's what fans want."

Isang three-week trai­ning ang ginawa ni Pacquiao sa Baguio City bago mag-ensayo sa Wild Card Bo­xing Gym ni Roach sa Hollywood, California.

Para kay Bradley, isang ma­laking karangalan ang ma­kalaban ang isang katulad ni Pacquiao.
