Can Timothy Bradley legitimately beat Manny Pacquiao?

Last year Manny Pacquiao had to endure his first loss in seven years when Timothy Bradley beat him on points in what many people viewed as a shocking decision. Perhaps in hindsight it was not so shocking considering the influx of bad decisions we have been having in the past couple of years, but nevertheless, Bradley was always seen to be in over his head against the former welterweight champion.

The Pacquiao-Bradley rematch: But what for is “Chavez-Vera II”?

With Timothy Bradley’s chess bout beating of Juan Manuel Marquez last Saturday, he finally earned the honor as a versatile champion, deserving to be in the “pound-for-pound” lists.  By adapting Latvian Gambit and Sicillian Defence combined, Bradley knew how to exchange pieces in every round to control the center. His king and pawn endgame tactic worked for him.

Bradley fought the natural Marquez who surprisingly appeared untalented and who struggled to find his power and rhythm all throughout the fight while I enjoyed easy seeing master strokes in Bradley’s “No PED” game plan.  But if there’s a Marquez-Bradley rematch in the future, it’s feasible only on condition that the few who would be enticed to watch should be served with pillows.

Alex Ariza: “Manny Pacquiao went from ordinary to extraordinary when we got there, and now he’s back to being an average fighter”

I recently had a chance to speak with Manny Pacquiao’s former strength and conditioning coach, Alex Ariza, on the 200th edition of “On The Ropes.” Ariza (Head of Ariza Fitness) had worked with Pacquiao for 5 years and helped him rise the top of the pound for pound list. After being released by team Pacquiao, Ariza now finds himself in the unique position of now working at the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy and helping prepare his new athlete, Brandon Rios, for battle against his former one.

Ariza spoke in detail on how his relationship with Freddie Roach deteriorated, and how he believes that effected the fighters in the gym. Alex also talked about his decision to take the job from Robert Garcia to work with his fighters, and in particularly, Brandon Rios. Lastly Ariza gave his thoughts on how a Pacquiao- Rios fight will ultimately play out. Here is what Alex Ariza had to say.

JENNA J: Alex, earlier in the interview I mentioned the amount of time you worked at the Wildcard Gym with Freddie Roach and Manny Pacquiao, for the fans that are listening out there that don’t know that situation, can you let them know why that situation didn’t work out for you and you eventually had to part ways?

Part 2 – Naazim Richardson: If Manny Pacquiao has anything left I can see him stealing a decision from Brandon Rios

Boxing trainer Naazim Richardson has seen many fighters come into the sport and also seen those same boxers leave almost as quickly as they have risen. Bernard Hopkins is the rare exception in the sport and with Naazim’s knowledge and strategy, the two have made history. At the age of 48, Hopkins is the oldest boxing champion ever and is set to return to the ring once again when he faces Karo Murat on October 26th.

In part 2 of my interview with Naazim Richardson, I discuss with him the challenge in front of his fighter, and if he thinks Bernard could overlook the mandatory challenger in front of him. Naazim also speaks on why he thinks Floyd Mayweather Jr would not avoid a Hopkins challenge and breaks down the options out there for boxing’s biggest draw. Additionally Brother Naazim gave his thoughts and prediction for the two biggest fights left in 2013, Marquez vs. Bradley and Pacquiao vs. Rios. Here is what Naazim had to say.

JENNA J:Naazim, Bernard Hopkins has business ahead of him, we can’t even talk about a Mayweather fight until he takes care of his mandatory in Karo Murat. What do you think of Bernard’s upcoming title defense?

Manny Pacquiao to get back with former conditioning coach Justine Fortune

Filipino boxing icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is getting back his former conditioning coach Justine Fortune to beef up his preparation for his Nov. 24 fight against young American Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios in Macau.

Fortune is expected to arrive in Manila on Friday and is expected to start working on Pacquiao’s conditioning.

The Australian conditioning coach’s arrival will effectively fill in the void caused by the yanking of Colombian Alex Ariza who figured in a rift with chief trainer Freddie Roach.

Did Manny Pacquiao see the light, the tide or the knockout of Brandon Rios?

Manny Pacquiao is probably thinking he’s better than any superhero in fiction movies because superheroes are endowed with special abilities to conquer the world, yet powerless to go against the purpose and mission for which they were made.  Next to surrendering his life to Jesus Christ, the greatest favor “Pacman” can do to himself, his family and boxing is to leave politics like he’s running away from a burning inferno.
