Bradley-Sparring Partner of Pacquiao

According to Phil boxing, Freddie Roach wants WBO light welterweight champion Timothy Bradley to be one of the sparring partners for WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao to help get him ready for his March 13th fight against unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Roach said “Other than Amir Khan as Pacquiao’s main sparring partner, I like to include Timothy Bradley in my list.” It’s unknown if Bradley, a great fighter in his own right, would be interested in being reduced to that of being a sparring partner. However, with the deep pockets of the Pacquiao team, they could probably dig up enough money to entice Bradley to come train with Pacquiao, as long as it didn’t interfere with any of Bradley’s planned fights. It’s hard to imagine Bradley, arguably the best light welterweight in the division, being below Khan, who hasn’t proven himself as of yet in the light welterweight division. Bradley, 26, has beaten the following fighters in 2009: Kendall Holt, Nate Campbell and Lamont Peterson. And in 2008, Bradley defeated Junior Witter and Edner Cherry. If Roach can get Bradley to help Pacquiao with training, then Manny will have a great shot at beating Mayweather come March 13th. Bradley has incredibly fast hands and is very good at fighting both on the inside and outside.
