MANILA, Philippines – American boxer Timothy Bradley Jr. is so confident of a victory against Filipino ring icon Manny Pacquiao that he’s already announcing a rematch date with the Pacman.
In a show of confidence, Bradley announced that “Bradley-Pacquiao 2” will be held on November 10, with tickets going on sale on June 10.
Bradley will challenge Pacquiao for the WBO welterweight belt on June 9 in Las Vegas. He comes in as the underdog against the Filipino champion, but this has not stopped Bradley from believing he can win.
Bradley, who is undefeated through 29 fights, said he is not bothered by Pacquiao’s advantage in experience, since he is a boxer in his prime.
Meanwhile, Top Rank chief Bob Arum explained that most fighters Pacquiao has fought has had a rematch clause, just in case they beat him.
The confident Bradley just took it a step further with his promotional poster.
Meanwhile, Pacquiao had several special visitors during his sparring session at the Wild Card Gym.
Fil-Am hip-hop star Apl.de.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas watched Pacquiao’s sparring session and promised to go jogging with the boxer this week, while evangelical pastor and author Rick Warren joined Pacquiao for dinner. Top Story, ANC, May 30, 2012.
