Manny Pacquiao‘s well-timed, accurate combinations allowed him to completely dominate Tim Bradley in the second fight of the trilogy. He’ll need to keep this up if he wants a second (arguably third) victory over the Palm Springs native.

The key to establishing Pacquiao’s timing and accuracy is him being able to set the pace early on in the fight. He cannot allow Bradley to disrupt the momentum, which could actually throw Pacquiao off base.

The Filipino icon is known for his insane foot and hand speed, and he should definitely use those assets to his advantage. Pacquiao should do more than just be timely and accurate–he needs to establish a pace with which Bradley can’t keep up.
