Manny Pacquiao says good bye to boxing after his next fight with Tim Bradley in the final act of their trifecta.  This trifecta has its share of controversy, in particular the first fight that many observers felt that Pacquiao won and there was no doubt who won the second bout.  Since that last bout, he defeated Chris Algieri before losing to Mayweather and sustaining shoulder injuries.  At 37, Pacquiao is not the same fighter at his peak, much less than his last bout with Bradley and this fight will be decided less on the physical talent of both fighters than on what Pacquiao has left.

Bradley has defeated Jesse Vargas and stopped Brandon Rios in nine and looked sharp as he was coached by Teddy Atlas in his Rios.   Atlas goal was to make Bradley more of a boxer and less of a slugger who would go toe to toe when provoked by sluggers.  He didn’t always use his boxing skills but Atlas wants Bradley to get hit less while countering.

Looking Ahead to 2016

Does the idea of Pacquiao-Bradley 3 get the pulse pumping?  Well on April 9th, Bradley-Pacquiao 3 happens.  This will be a fun fight as both fighters have fought two good fights before but somehow the public will be asking, why? Simply because this is the biggest potential for money and a victory over Bradley might entice Mayweather to a rematch but this may be wishful thinking on Pacquiao part.  Bradley looked good in his last fight over Rios and with Ted Atlas working in his corner to sharpen their boxing skills.

Gennady Golovkin may fight Billy Joe Saunders for Saunders’ title along with Triple G’s belts. The ultimate goal is to have the big bout with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez for probably biggest fight of 2016.
