Pacquiao-Bradley Final Presser Quick Quotes

By Karl Freitag
Photos: Mikey Williams Top Rank

Eight-division former world champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and five-time world champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley held their final press conference on Wednesday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Here’s what they had to say:

Timothy Bradley: This is about legacy for me. I’m getting a third crack at it. I’m ready and if I’m going to win this fight, it’s now! I’m ready for everything. More than any other fight I’ve ever been in. If I’m going to beat Manny Pacquiao, it’s now. This is my last opportunity and I’m ready for it.

Manny Pacquiao: Please watch this fight. I believe it’s more action compared to the last two fights that we had because of his new coach Teddy. He did a good job for Bradley and we saw that in his last fight. He’s adding more strategy and techniques for Bradley and that makes more action in the ring.

What if Muhammad Ali hadn’t spent his prime years in exile? How great could Salvador Sanchez have been if he hadn’t died prematurely? Was Tony Ayala Jr. destined to be the next junior middleweight champion?

The theories are endless.

In modern times, the proverbial speculation takes place in the heavyweight division, specifically in the championship potential of Ike “The President” Ibeabuchi. (more…)

You know you’ve arrived when…

pacquiao-bradley3By Bill Dwyre

My bucket list is now complete. I saw a boxing Grand Arrival.

I used to work for a newspaper where the old sports editor frowned on such frivolity and didn’t allow his reporters to waste time and money on such things. They would be allowed to report to Las Vegas for the big matches, such as Saturday’s Manny Pacquiao-Tim Bradley battle, the day after the Grand Arrivals.

What is a Grand Arrival, you may ask?

You also may ask, did Derek Jeter make a Grand Arrival before every Yankee game he played? (more…)

Jhonny Gonzalez angling toward rematch with Gary Russell Jr.

Former world champion Jhonny Gonzalez turned up at the WBC’s weekly brunch in Mexico City with his wife, Mexican luchadora “Sexy Star.” Fresh off his second round KO over Justin Savi, Gonzalez retained his WBC International silver super featherweight title. Jhonny stated he can still painlessly make featherweight and he’s seeking a rematch with current WBC world champion Gary Russell Jr.

“I expected more of my opponent,” he said, “because throughout the week he kept saying he was going to knock me out. I was going to wait for a mistake and send him to the canvas in the third round, but he ended up bowing to the power and serious work. We got the victory that puts us back on the map and we’ll continue working to win the world title again.”

WBO super middleweight world champion Arthur Abraham and trainer Ulli Wegner attended Mike Tyson’s one-man show, currently running at the MGM Grand. After the show Abraham met Tyson. “I politely introduced myself. ‘Hi Mike, I’m Arthur Abraham. I’m boxing on Saturday for the world championship here at the MGM.’ Tyson said, ‘I already know you. I wish you much success on Saturday against Ramirez!'”

Abraham told Iron Mike that the moment he saw him fight on TV he wanted to be a professional boxer and eventually win the world championship.

Tyson’s advice? “Arthur, do it like me – win by knockout! You can do it – Knockout!”

“If Mike says that, then I’ll do that, of course,” said Abraham. “For my fans and for him, on Saturday I’ll bring out the ‘Abrahammer’ again!”

Maybe Tyson will be even be on hand to see it.

Martin: Joshua’s green, I’m gonna knock him out

IBF heavyweight champion “Prince” Charles Martin (23-0-1, 21 KOs) says he’s going to expose 2012 Olympic gold medalist Anthony Joshua (15-0, 15 KOs) when they collide on Saturday in London. “Everybody thinks that he’s a superstar,” said Martin. “I know that he’s green. I know he’s not ready. I’m gonna get him right now while he’s green…take him out.”

As for Joshua’s prediction of a KO by round six, Martain stated, “He’s not ready. He’s gonna get tired like he always does thinking he’s only gonna go five rounds. He’s gonna get tired and that’s when I’m gonna jump on his head. Period…I know I’m gonna knock him out!

“In the Dillian Wyhte fight, he got real tired. He has no footwork, he can’t box, he can’t move. The only thing he’s relying on is his power and I’ve got more tools than that. I’m more than just a powerful puncher. I can do it all!”

Joshua says he’ll stop Martin within six

Challenger Anthony Joshua (15-0, 15 KOs) today predicted that IBF heavyweight world champion Charles Martin (23-0-1, 21 KOs) wouldn’t last past six rounds when they collide for the IBF heavyweight title on Saturday night in London. “He’s not my toughest opponent yet,” said Joshua, the 2012 Olympic gold medalist. “Right now, looking at Charles, he’s a counter-puncher, he’s laid back, he doesn’t work the full rounds. It should be a nice controlled fight. The Dillian Whyte fight was a tough fight. We were both hungry. The guy was very strong to the head, that was a tough fight for sure. So I don’t think Charles will impose those type of threats that Dillian did.”

Joshua also pointed out that styles make fights, “so it might be a different story come April 9th.”

Blackwell brought out of induced coma

nickblackwell300
On Saturday, Nick ‘Bang Bang’ Blackwell woke from an induced coma. Twenty-four hours later, on Sunday, he was talking to family and close friends at his bedside. Nick had been placed in an induced coma following a British middleweight title contest at The SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday, March 26. Contrary to early reports, though, his bleed was outside the brain – on the skull, in fact – and was minor enough for there to be no need to operate.

He was in an induced coma for almost seven days, given the very best possible treatment by the team at St. Mary’s Hospital, and the sedatives used were gradually reduced over this period of time.

Finally, over the weekend, Nick woke from this induced coma, acknowledged the voices of loved ones and, by Sunday, was starting to talk. It was the outcome everyone had been hoping and praying for.

The WBA has ordered a championship clash between its world minimumweight titlist Byron Rojas (17-2-3, 8 KOs) and the unbeaten interim minimumweight beltholder Knockout CP Freshmart (12-0, 6 KOs). Rojas won the title last month with an upset unanimous decision over longtime champ Hekkie Budler, Freshmart has held the interim designation since October 2014, with three defenses to his credit.

The WBA had already ordered Budler to face Freshmart after their next defenses, but with Budler unexpectedly dethroned, Rojas thereby inherited Budler’s obligation to face Freshmart. The 30-day negotiating period began March 23. If no deal is reached, a purse bid will be held.
