Timothy Bradley and Manny Pacquiao weighed-in Friday in front of thousands of enthusiastic fight fans (the majority supporting Manny) at the MGM Grand. After their face-off, both fighters were quickly corralled by Top Rank’s Crystina Poncher for some final comments. Here’s what they had to say.
Timothy Bradley: Boos are like cheers for me. I’ve been the underdog my whole life. I was raised up in the ghetto, so I know what being the underdog is like. I know when you don’t have any food in the refrigerator, I know what that’s like. I’m happy to be here. Tomorrow we’re gettin’ it on, me and Manny.
Manny Pacquiao: It’s nice to be back in Las Vegas. I’m really thankful for the fans who came here today, and tomorrow I have to pay them back with a good fight and, of course, a victorious fight.
