Will Pacquiao have reason to smile after Bradley fight?
Would a Manny Pacquiao loss mean a fight with Floyd Mayweather? Also, the latest in the Andre Ward-Chad Dawson negotiations.
Let's turn our attention back to it. The fight game a little box saying in this there was Timothy Bradley. Had to say about -- fight Manny Pacquiao speed kills I've quicker hands are quicker feet than he does he's a Ferrari and I Milan regaining. We're both exciting and fast and competitive there was no way this fight. Goes well round. It's more back pains and welcome him. Ours isn't boxing insider Ryan my opinion on Paul Gutierrez joins us on the set as well enough. Let's talk about this fight Timothy Bradley he's got to put on a few extra pounds could that's slowing him down and and is he still dangerous enough to maybe beat Manny Pacquiao. I don't think the slowing them fodder for some pounds before and I tell you what there's going to be the first -- a long time. That Manny is facing an opponent who doesn't really have that many red flag to any replacement at all he's undefeated. He hasn't been knocked down or is coming off a loss. And and with that and you've got to Timothy Bradley that's really hungry and then I think we'll give us a great fight him Paul last time -- Manny Pacquiao looks in his own trainers -- a little distracted us. Yeah and really I think of the distraction and add to his. Is match ups are will really make the fights and and you find an opponent that really gives you fits -- -- -- two solid Manny Pacquiao last time. I -- he's gonna have as many distractions this time I mean every still talking about what is he gonna fight Floyd Mayweather. But at the same time he knows the big money payday is at the end of this and if he gets distracted he could get knocked out to get stopped because he's already shown. That he can't lose a fight because he has. They had to labor to get that victory over Juan Manuel Marquez and -- kinda -- -- I got to follow up what's his -- you what you told me earlier today you say you know what. Losing this fight would actually maybe make the Mayweather to fight a lot more realistic for Manny Pacquiao. Absolutely you know there's been so much bickering over the past couple years -- -- him and he's tired of hearing it. You know what that's and I think that if. Many more to lose this fight you know there are only two main barriers I think that are in the way from despite ever happening I think number one points talked about the conference of drug testing which. Manny and his promoter Bob Clement gone on the record saying they would do. So the only thing left would be the money split. And Floyd is insisted that he wants the hired the the line share no matter what nannies. Proposed a 5050 or maybe even 5545. To go to the winner. If you were to lose this fight he wouldn't have any leverage as far as. Bargaining we're negotiating as far as -- concerns -- that sense we might see that fight just got. Forward Floyd's -- want that fight and -- Diaz attractive to the people behind him Paul I don't know -- be as -- as attractive but but the fact that Floyd Mayweather was actually hit. In his left I think that's one thing with the with the Manny Pacquiao fight. You know you're gonna see a fight he's gonna get in there and he's in a trade blows and he's gonna take some blows with Floyd his brilliance to me was also what turned off a lot of fight fans. Was that he would never really engaged until he tired out. The the other fighter in and -- part of his brilliance as as a boxer so the fact that he's now getting older he's getting tagged by Miguel Cotto. If this fight ever happens it's not gonna be like Larry Holmes against a George Foreman you know not that those old guys but eight. Out of -- gonna lose a little bit of its luster. -- let's move on real quick I want to talk about Andre Ward because the -- got appears like he's finally got. Another fight on his horizon to horizon against Chad Dawson they're talking about September -- you weren't the first people to break this story is this fight going to happen in. Atlantic City Los Angeles and any insight as to where my -- I spoke to Andris promoter Dan Goosen they said there with an Atlantic City. Los Angeles for obvious reasons they'd like Oakland but it's probably going to be one of those two. It is this fight definitely on I think so you know as far as a legacy fight this is the fight that underneath and you've got a guy and Andre who cleaned up and it's escape and the vision. And he's going to be going up against it and Chad Dawson who in winning the 175 pound crown bids. -- did something that no fighter had been able to do the last nineteen years and that is beat Bernard Hopkins decisively. Well so. They also called out -- -- award after that -- and said he would be able to go to Ottawa 68 to fight that's. Be awfully intriguing yeah especially for a guy as writes that for the on reward he's he's an Olympian is a local guy but he doesn't have that national buzz. In this type of fight can really. Get that train going form because. Up until that point you side you know that the Twitter verses is rife with tales of craziness anyways but I started seeing people and what about Floyd fighting. Fighting him and I don't know what weight they would fight that but Floyd and Andre would be interest and that's not gonna happen either so now this is one of those career defining fights. Now Andre Ward by the -- still like coming back from that hand injury WBZ recently took away his belt now he's definitely does happen back right now is that. Apparently there and -- put back up for this fight if he were to fight thoughts are we got less than a minute left and -- you wanna talk about -- CLA he's got a big fight coming up this weekend as well. -- is going to be fighting this Friday and gets into Friday night fights against -- Toronto. This new trainer virtual owners can be Orton and Batista said it best he needs to win this fight he's in his thirties he wins this -- is already in the top ten. It pushes them even closer to title another local guy so we all can get behind him.
