Last Chance for an Icon

This Sunday Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao faces WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley in a rematch of one of the most controversial fights in recent years. Bradley won a close yet highly criticised split decision. The fight was an extremely close one and had it not been for HBO’s absurdly biased commentary, Tim Bradley would have been praised for his performance. However, this was not the case. Led by Jim Lampley, HBO did everything in their power to paint this as a one sided fight that was stolen from the great Manny Pacquiao.

Both fighters will be looking to set things straight this time around. Bradley will be out to prove that the first fight wasn’t a fluke or a robbery, while Pacquiao will be looking to prove that his best years are not behind him. This is a must win fight for Manny Pacquiao. Should he suffer another loss or even look bad in winning, his days of being a PPV attraction will be over. His hall of fame career has lost a lot of steam over the past few years. His PPV numbers are way down and he hasn’t scored a knockout in over four years. Pacquiao will be fighting more than a title on Saturday night; his career will be on the line.

Who do you think will win this fight? Let me know in the comments section below.
