Tim Bradley is already making one huge mistake he can't afford to make when facing and mega-star boxing champion like Manny Pacquiao. Counting backwards, I would like to point out these five mistakes that he cannot make.
Number five. The one he is making right now, 'getting to caught up into the moment of the event.' He has been the head of the promotion. Pacquiao has taken a back seat to Tim Bradley and let him steer the ship. Surprising from someone who is getting a flat fee.
Number four, 'Remember to fight the way you normally fight.' Don't get caught up into the media trap of making you feel you need to do something different to win. Doing what you're doing right now got you here so stick with it.
Number three, 'Can't throw wide punches.' Pacquiao will counter you with a short hook if you go wide.
Number two, 'Letting Pacquiao hit you.Bradley wants to feel and judge Pacquiao's power which I believe is stupid. You're in a fight to win not to do a test of might.
Number one, 'You cannot, I mean cannot headbutt Pacquiao.' Not even once, Bradley will get warned coming to the ring about headbutts. Pacquiao also leads with his head because he is also a wild fighter. Either we will have a great fight or a boring fight.
