Photo Credit: David Zambrano/The Boxing Channel – Timothy Bradley's trainer, Joel Diaz talks to Boxing Channel about Bradley's preparation, mentions they've worked mainly on throwing less punches but being more effective.

Timothy Bradley is an experienced fighter that has faced top opposition like Juan Manuel Marquez, Ruslan Provodnikov. Joel Casamayor and Devon Alexander.

Timothy knows he has to prove he is better than Manny Pacquiao and deserving of the WBO Welterweight  belt he got via a controversial win over Manny Pacquiao in 2012.

It must be a Cali-desert thing, T-Brad's trainer J Diaz is delusional also.

T-Brad does not have punching power a go go. And I don't care how many fresh sparringmates he had, you don't learn proper power punching in a few months in one camp.

T-Brad is still a feather-fistic-punching tramp. And he is not hurting or knocking Da Manny. And will be full of panic.

T-Brad, himself is getting KTFO, and is going down like the Titanic. Holla!

I Like listening to Diaz speak, he has great intensity and presence of mind. When it looked like Bradley was going to just “give up” in his first fight with Manny due to an injured foot, it was Joel who rallied Bradley back from the brink by sheer dint of will, encouraging Bradley to give it all he had until the final bell.
Even though most regard that fight as a loss for Bradley, (myself included) if it weren't for Diaz, there wouldn't even have even been a fight. Just another lopsided win for Manny.

In regards to what Diaz says about Bradley's punching power,…. his words resonate strongly with me…. it was clearly evident in Bradley's recent fight with Marquez that Bradley wasn't his old Slap-Happy self as he delivered straight punches throughout the fight even dazing Marquez in the final round.
Of course we can't tell by mere interviews if these subtle adjustments will be enough… but it sure makes things more interesting from a speculative perspective leading up to the fight.

Gotta' love the enthusiasm in Joel Diaz. He says Timothy Bradley is gonna' kick Pac's butt. We'll, there's an expression which goes something like this: “If you wanna' kick butt, you gotta' bring butt.” So, in order for Bradley to kick Pac's butt and knock him out, he is going to have to be willing to risk his own whiskers.

I can't, for the life of me, see Bradley winning a firefight.

Somebody is getting KTFO'd.

I can't see that somebody being Pacquiao.
