Timothy Bradley took the boxing world by storm in 2012 when he became the first man in seven years to send the unstoppable Manny Pacquiao walking out of the ring with his head down in defeat by way of unanimous decision. “Pac-Man” was viewed as the most dominant fighter in the world at the time and Bradley was a major underdog walking into the fight. While “Pac-Man” eventually did avenge his loss, the first victory is something that will replay in the minds of boxing fans for years to come and you can’t take that away from Bradley, no matter how controversial the decision was.
With names like Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao seemingly out of the big picture in boxing, guys like Timothy Bradley can finally take center stage and show the world what they are working with. Brandon Ríos was Bradley’s latest victim, getting knocked out in the ninth round.
In between rounds seven and eight, boxing legend Teddy Atlas gave Bradley one of the most amazing speeches in recent memory! Check it out in the video above!
