The 35-year-old Pacquiao will be facing the biggest challenge in the second chapter of his career, trying to avenge the most controversial loss as a boxer at the hands of the man called the Desert Storm.
Bradley, who has been undefeated in 32 professional fights, will look to preserve his immaculate record, and at the same time, gain some vindication after receiving tremendous backlash from the boxing community for winning a fight he didn't deserve to take.
Motivation is a Factor
The Pacman stressed that he's extra motivated heading into his second showdown with Bradley, more so after he got obliterated by Bradley's thrash talking prowess.
Bradley insisted that he really won their first encounter with Pacquiao in a score of eight rounds to two, and vowed to beat the Filipino slugger one more time. The Desert storm added that Pacquiao hasn't been the fighter he was before, saying he already turned into a compassionate warrior.
"The only thing is that hunger that he's looking for, it's no longer there, and he can't get it back, and it's gone ... The killer instinct man, that's what I'm saying," Bradley said in HBO's Face Off with Pacquiao.
Pacquiao, on the other hand, promised to show the old, brutal self who tormented several big names in boxing during incredible run in 2000s.
"Yes, I think that's the important part of this fight, to prove I still have that killer instinct," Pacquiao told Bleacher Report in a phone interview last week. "But for me, in my opinion, I never lost it [first fight against Bradley]."
