Timothy Bradley: Manny Pacquiao ‘Scared’

MYDESERT.COM – Leighton Ginn | August 16, 2012

Growing weary of the waiting game, WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley called out Manny Pacquiao on Wednesday.

Bradley, who is awaiting word on whether Pacquiao wants to fight him again, said the Filipino fighter is scared of a rematch he can’t win.

Last week, promoter Bob Arum traveled to meet with Pacquiao to decide who the Filipino congressman would fight Nov. 10 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. One of the leading options was against Bradley, who won a controversial split decision over Pacquiao in June.

As of Wednesday night, Bradley still doesn’t have an answer from Pacquiao.

“To be honest with you, I think a lot of people on that side are scared,” the Cathedral City fighter said in an exclusive interview with The Desert Sun. “He couldn’t knock me out with two peg legs. Me healthy, I’m going to beat him worse.

“If Manny wants to do it, let’s do it. It’s been a circus around here. I’ve been sitting around here waiting. I want the fight, but he hasn’t decided yet.”
