It's looking like Manny Pacquiao will give young gun Tim Bradley a crack at it on June 9. But Pacman advisor Michael Koncz told me that foe and date is "not confirmed yet."
A screamingly unscientific poll tells me lots of fight fans seem more intrigued by this scrap than Mayweather-Cotto, since they think Bradley has a better shot at beating Manny than Cotto has beating Floyd.
The 28-year-old cali fighter Bradley is 28-0, but has just 12 KOs. He is a busy fighter, but slightly one dimensional. One imagines the Pacman (54-3-2; age 33) can get angles on him, confound him with the southpaw stance, and hand him his first loss. But maybe Manny has slipped, and Bradley will be the one to show the world. Tell us what you think.
