Wrestling Academy Online video Ranking: 4 / 5
For a long time, American boxer Timothy Bradley has claimed being undefeated was of the utmost importance to him. Now that he has been handed his first ever defeat as a professional, Bradley has been extremely philosophical about it.
He said that he really tried, he wanted that knockout badly. However, he admitted that Manny Pacquiao is a great fighter, one of the greatest boxers the sport has seen and he has no problems about suffering his first defeat at the hands of one of the true great of boxing.
The Filipino Bomber landed blow after blow on the American and the heavy punches took its toll on the American as he found himself on the ropes for a long period of time and the judges’ decision was an easy one in the end as they handed a unanimous decision in favor of Pacquiao.
Having reclaimed the World Boxing Organization or the WBO Welterweight Championship, the Pacman has a mandatory title defense lined up against the winner of the Juan Manuel Marquez v/s Mike Alvarado showdown.
When the announcement of the winner was made, Timothy Bradley stood in one corner of the ring and clapped the victor, going on to even hug the Filipino’s mother.
He said that life goes on, and the loss was not a big deal. He will take a few days off before hitting the gym once again.
Timothy Bradley also said that after the injury he sustained in the first round of the match, there wasn’t much left in him that he could work with. But he admitted that although it was tough pill to swallow, he has no complaints whatsoever, adding that Pacquiao deserved his victory on the night and he feels he still has a lot to learn from the veteran boxing great.
