    Tim Bradley is one of Pacman's worthy opponent not only because he gave all his best in those three epic fights but the professionalism, respect and humility he showed which is rare in great fighters. He is also an icon to me.

    Bradley is truly a Gentleman. He's not afraid to admit that he was scared. He fought really hard, i think he deserved that first duel. The thing that Bradley is different from the rest, he is NOT Afraid of admiting something. A Humble Person. Kudos to Bradley. I'm a filipino.

    Bradley is my favorite opponent of Pacquiao, Why? because he only got knocked down once in 3 fights but he talks like he got knocked out and got beaten which he didn't. He is not afraid to accept and say that Pacquiao is a beast unlike other opponents who says Pac didn't hurt him even they got knocked out lol

    Much respect to Tim Bradley touching story and congrats on your career, wish you and your family all the best. He said the most real thing iv heard in a while too many people are followers and not leaders in the world today. People don't want to be wrong and judged so they follow who they think is right, think for your selves people don't follow trends make trends.

    "Fighting the #1 P4P fighter in the game, I was scared out of my mind".... Timmy, if you read this comment, just know that everyone else who faced Manny WAS SCARED. But you had the balls to do it 3 times. Love from the Philippines Mr. Bradley. Bob Arum certainly had plans for both you and Manny in the business when the time was right. Wishing you well Mr. Bradley!

    Pacquiao was asked, “your 40 years old, what is your greatest achievement in life?

      Amen 💙 That explains why Manny cares for the poor, gives away his money to build people houses, desires to build a hospital, and is humble even after all his achievements. GOD be glorified!

    It’s sad to hear that Bradley had to go through all that hate. Although I believe he lost that fight, I’ve always liked Bradley because he was a tough fighter, a great analyst, and a humble person. But even if he wasn’t all those things, nobody deserves to be driven to the point of wanting to die.

  • fridz66
    fridz66 2 years ago +11

    He’s a good champion. I was in the hate train when he won because there was no way he won that fight. Pac and him are good friends and they didn’t trash talk each other. Respect to both.

  • Rommel Valdez
    Rommel Valdez 2 years ago +10

    I just can't help but admire people that has their feet still on the ground. Humility is a difficult virtue to keep, maybe you have it with you when you were still a kid coz your momma told you to be humble always. But then you grow up, you achieved things and suddenly you feel proud and now it's very hard to accept that there is someone better than you in what you do best. My respect is to this guy, Manny as well, both humble fighters despite having the title and being the champion. In boxing it is easy to be harsh, you see it everytime, the big names, bragging their stuff, trash talking here and there always yelling they are the best of their era.
    If only, I think Manny won the first fight, it is not Bradley's fault though, I know.

      David Stetler that’s true but he even said he thought he lost at first I would have gave much respected if he would have said that the Judges seen it differently it’s not my fault Manny but let’s go again in 6 months so I can see if I really won that fight!! I will leave it all in the ring Manny!! Much respect would have been like WoW that’s much respected.. but instead he came out swinging not be humble that hey I thought I lost the fight for real but the Judges thought differently

    • Jeffery G Bergen SR
      Jeffery G Bergen SR 3 years ago

      Babyjayyy hey bro I agree with that one but come on he has to be in reality of him self did you go back watch that fight PacMan was the champion you have to knock him down or TKO a champion so in that Bradley you should know that!! In that I don’t respect him he can’t give the belt back but he could have said I thought I lost the fight but my corner said no you won then he should have went over to PacMan say I thought you won so let’s have rematch!! Go with that I would have really respected him for that reason alone!! As Champion especially after the fight come out with the true champion and saids as much I take this one but I will fight you fair and square!!
