KEATS LONDON/INQUIRER CORRESPONDENT

Fighter of the Decade Manny Pacquiao issued a subtle warning to unbeaten American Timothy Bradley on their face off Monday (Tuesday in Manila) in Los Angeles.

“Don’t take this fight easy, just do your best in training,” Pacquiao told Bradley, according to Examiner.com. “Make yourself ready on June 9th.”

On that date, the 33-year-old Pacquiao will stake his World Boxing Organization welterweight crown against Bradley, his 28-year-old WBO junior welterweight counterpart in a pay-per-view bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Pacquiao, the sport’s only eight-division champion, and Bradley will start their coast-to-coast media tour on Tuesday at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The boxers will be accompanied by revered promoter Bob Arum and trainers Freddie Roach (for Pacquiao) and Joel Diaz (for Bradley) in the formal announcement of their showdown.

Tickets for Pacquiao-Bradley will go on sale on Feb. 24 with those priced at $1,200, $900, $600, $400 to be limited to 10 per person. The $200 tickets will be limited to two per person. Tickets will also be available at www.mgmgrand.com or www.ticketmaster.com.

    Let’s hope Manny won’t repeat the same mistakes he made during his third fight with Marquez.

    Las Vegas again, where Manny can not be forced to an independent blood test, which is also a main matter for Mayweather who suspects some kind of doping which can not be detected by urine tests only. (own blood infusion, high altitude training, increasing red blood cells for stamina or use of HGH hormons to increase stamina and build muscles instead of fat)

    Baka si Manny ang dapat na ‘be ready’. walang boksingero ang hindi ready kung ito ay may laban. Kaya ikaw Manny ang maghanda dahil ikaw ang dapat na talunin ng challenger. Nasa iyo ang lahat upang ang kalaban mo ay maghanda para siya ang susunod na mabigyan ng parangal.

    Boycott all Pacquiao and Mayweather fights until they fight each other.

  • Anonymous

    Don’t care about this fight or anymore of these money fights for Pacquiao OR Mayweather! They need to fight each other and that’s it! Boxing has become a sport where fighters fight for a ” payday” as opposed to championships! Timothy Bradley has no chance against Pac! He is just gonna get a huge paycheck after the fight! Pacquiao KNOWS he will not lose to Bradley, Bradley KNOWS he has no chance of winning against Pac! Save your money people because there is no way Pacquiao loses against this guy.

       Anyway not in Las Vegas where the Pac crazy FilAms guarabtee big money, never Manny will lose there if just he is able to enter the ring.
      The real losers are the congress and the province he is representing and for what he became gis military rank and his salaries, even he does not need that.
