Pacquiao vs Bradley - our friend, boxing writer, Gordon Marino recently caught up with Tim Bradley and Manny Pacquiao, and as usual, he pestered them for boxing tips! Marino said,"Manny was on the way to a meeting so was in a bit of a rush but still he kindly took the time to suggest, 'Tell your fighters that when they are hitting the bag or shadow boxing to always throw six and seven punch combinations, because six and seven in the gym will only be three punches in the ring!"
Marino continued, "Bradley told me - 'Here is one of my favorite moves - you paw with the jab. After your second jab you can be sure that your opponent will be coming back with a counter-jab and just as he is you time your right hand and nail him coming in. Follow up with a left and go out to your left."
Marino's article on the big fight between these two great ambassadors of boxing is in the WALL STREET JOURNAL. You can also follow his WSJ blog of the fight on Saturday night.www.boxinghalloffame.com
