It has been reported that a rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley has been set for November 10th, before the first fight has even happened. The reason for this is that Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum believes that an upset could be on the cards. He visited Bradley and checked on his preparation for their June 9th fight, and he was apparently awestruck by 'Dessert Storm's' confidence, physique and demeanor.
"This is the reason I haven't talked about any other fight with Manny other than his upcoming fight with Bradley," said Arum.
This will lead many people to believe that Pacquiao may not be ready for this fight or he is not 100% focused. Which a lot of people already thought anyway. Personally, I do think that 'Pacman' is ready for and focused on the fight but I also think that he himself is a little shocked by how confident his opponent, most people have been. But, Bradley has every reason to be confident. He is a young, hungry fighter who is in his prime and Pacquiao looks to be on a slight decline.
Many people would have thought that this decision for a rematch would have angered or at least annoyed Bradley but he is that confident that he tweeted a picture of a fake rematch poster with a caption saying: "So good we get to do it twice!"
No matter what happens, this is going to be a great fight on June 9th and anybody expecting Manny Pacquiao to win with ease is in for a shock. Bradley looks more ready than ever and I along with Bob Arum and many people out there believe an upset could be on the cards.
