Bradley won’t last distance– Peñalosa

HOLLYWOOD -- When he first saw Manny Pacquiao in training in General Santos City last month, former two-division world champion Gerry Peñalosa predicted that his close friend would beat Timothy Bradley by unanimous decision.


Two weeks ago, though, when he watched Pacquiao spar at the Wild Card Gym here after a bout with the flu, Peñalosa changed tack.

He felt that the Fighter of the Decade was far from his best form and could be in for a tougher fight than expected.

Barely two days later, Peñalosa was relieved to see Pacquiao in his elements again, bombarding his sparring partners with combinations.


After the six-round sparring sessions Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) and Friday, Peñalosa changed his prognosis of how Pacquiao’s grudge rematch with Bradley for the World Boxing Organization welterweight crown on April 12 (April 13 in Manila) at MGM Grand in Arena would end.
