Outbox and Outwork Bradley

Manny Pacquiao is a veteran, so there’s no reason why he shouldn’t put on clinic for a younger, less-experienced fighter. With time on his side and one of boxing’s best trainers in his corner, Pacquiao should be able to figure out quickly what Bradley does really well and take those things away from him.
He should also be able to see Bradley’s mistakes and make him pay.
Outboxing Bradley doesn’t mean that Pacquiao has to put on a relaxed, inactive performance. Outworking Bradley is one of the best ways he can beat him. This is where we will really see if age has yet to catch up with the boxing superstar.
Pacquiao needs to set a pace that is physically and mentally difficult for Bradley to keep up with. And fortunately, outworking Bradley already compliments Pacquiao’s unique style known for high volumes of punches.
