In boxing, Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, the Miguel Cotto’s of the world have their fair share of haters and fan boys alike, but at least for the most part there is a level of respects from most of observers for each of these fighters.
In Timothy Bradley’s case amongst many fans and media members alike, Bradley doesn’t even get that respect. The lack of respect Timothy Bradley has received from fans and members of the media is a dark cloud that has followed the champion from Palm Springs throughout his career.
He’s like the Larry Holmes of his day. Holmes felt during his career, he wasn’t given his proper respect as a champion and that feeling of the lack of respect would haunt him throughout his career.
