Whether truly victorious or the beneficiary of a suspect decision, Tim Bradley is the real deal. Did he not outperform your expectations?
Everyone who considered him a decent-at-best, light welterweight, went up in weight and "beat" the second best welterweight in the world. I admit when I've been wrong (Lucian Bute, Ismayl Sillakh), but I felt strongly that Tim Bradley would give Pacquiao all he could handle and that this would be no walk in the park for Pacquiao. The concerns over Bradley's punching power were overblown. Categorizing his style as just an aggressive brawler were incorrect. He can box with speed on his back foot well and he has above average defense. No longer can we describe him simply as a good, but not great, boxer. He is in our p4p and is a threat to anyone from 140-147. Stand up Desert Storm!
