Round 1- Bradley is setting the tempo of the fight and did more active in the round with his jab, but Pacquiao is able to parry almost every single jab that comes his way. Pacquiao is more accurate with his jab, and does get in a couple of counter lefts. Very close round with neither doing anything great, but Pacquiao seemed to get the cleaner work done.

Round 2- The left cross of Pacquiao is landing frequently. Often, Pacquiao catches Bradley coming in with this punch, and he has also neutralized Bradley’s jab completely.

Round 3- Bradley starts to fight his own fight, as he is able to counter Pacquiao at times with right hands and left hooks as well as get up close to land some hooks to the body with both hands. Pacquiao is still showing the superior jab and gets in a nice check hook late, but this was definitely a Bradley-round.

Round 4- Bradley starts off active, landing a left hook and straight right to the body early. After this brief rally, Pacquiao starts to utilize his jab to some success, allowing him to land several lead left hands throughout. Pacquiao is beating Bradley to the punch through the course of the round, and gets Bradley’s attention with a combo of a straight left to the body-right hook to the head. Bradley gets in a clean right hand before the bell, but Pacquiao has himself a good round overall.

Round 5- After a calm four rounds, the action starts to heat up. A right hand from Bradley knocks Pacquiao off balance early, but Pacquiao comes on to land several lead lefts on him. Several exchanges occur, with both men having their moments. As is, Pacquiao is landing more often, and landing the harder shots, both courteousy of his beloved left hand. A left uppercut from Bradley lands, but Pacquiao closes out the round with an overhand left that buckles him a bit. Bradley looks discouraged after the bell.

Round 6- In what is a common theme for when he fights Pacquiao (especially the first fight), Bradley starts off with a combination, but the shots are blocked by the guard of Pacquiao, and then Bradley fails to maintain this quick pace for the majority of the round. The lead right hook is landing more for Pacquiao. Bradley gets in a right late in the round, but Pacquiao responds with 3-4 hooks around his guard.

Round 7- Pacquiao stalks Bradley throughout, potshots the left hand successfully and scoring more often between the two with the jab. Most of the time when Bradley gets off shots, Pacquiao is able to simply step back out of range and make him miss. Pacquiao walks Bradley down late and drops him on all fours with a right hook-left hook combo, making it the first knockdown he scored over Bradley in 31 rounds. Bradley somehow tries to deny this being a knockdown when getting up. Pacquiao is unable to follow up, and Bradley looks even more discouraged after the bell. Great round for PacMan.

Round 8- Bradley starts applying heavier pressure from the opening bell, and is able to land his jab and lead right easier than he has in the previous rounds. Not much is coming from Pacquiao. Late, a big left hook buzzes Pacquiao and has him genuinely hurt momentarily. Despite shelling up, Bradley is able to pierce it with more left hooks and right hands over the top. Pacquiao seems to say something in Bradley’s ear during a clinch, but it is unclear what it was. When they get seperated, Pacquiao seems to be recovered and starts to fire back, but is expectedly unable to do anything to win back the round. I would have to say that this was the best round that Tim Bradley ever had against Manny Pacquiao.

Round 9- Seemingly eager to capitalize on his big moment from the previous round, Bradley comes out with an energetic pace. He is able to drag Pacquiao into some exchanges, and Pacquiao is able to pinpoint some left hands and right hooks to edge them. A huge overhand left counter dazes Bradley. Pacquiao misses with a follow up left, but manages to fire back immediately with a left uppercut that drops Bradley a second time, making him do a slow backwards somersault. Pacquiao gets in a few lefts when following up, but Bradley shows heart and comes forward persistently, while looking to land big shots. Bradley looks mentally beaten after the bell. Another great round for Pacquiao. These past three rounds sure have been exciting.

Round 10- Once again, Bradley goes on the offensive early, but becomes rather tenative after taking some counter right hooks from Pacquiao. Pacquiao is stalking Bradley, playing the role of the counterpuncher, and potshotting with the left to head and body. Bradley looks heavily discouraged once again after the bell. Bradley’s wife and manager, Monica Bradley leaves after this round, obviously sick of seeing her man take damage. Seems as if Pacquiao is the king at making fighter’s wives leave.

Round 11- A definite swing round. Bradley is more active with the jab, but Pacquiao seems to parry each one, while landing with a thud when getting in with his own. Both are able to land with their lead power hand on the other a few times. I’d give a very mild edge for Pacquiao winning the effective defense category (the parry), and seemingly being a tad more accurate with his work, but I can very well see somebody scoring the round for Bradley.

Round 12- Knowing he’s in desperate need of one, Bradley seems to try and go for the knockout, as he chases Pacquiao around the ring and throws a plethora of clubbing shots. Pacquiao is defending a lot of these blows and countering at times. It seems as if Pacquiao is content with coasting his way to victory until a defining moment wins him the round: Bradley backs Pacquiao against the ropes and absorbs a check hook that makes him stunble into the ropes head first. This debatably could have been ruled as a knockdown. Bradley shells up, but not before taking a right uppercut and two more left hands. For what should have been the third time, Pacquiao wins a wide unanimous decision. While Pacquiao looked great in each encounter against Bradley, I feel this was the best. His offense, defense, and boxing IQ looked the sharpest, and he was able to mentally beat Bradley several rounfs before the end even occured. The knockdowns came as a result of this too. Even past his prime, he showed he was levels ahead of Timothy Bradley, who he ultimately beat into retirement. Bradley did have a great career, and the fact Pacquiao was the only fighter to ever beat him looks great in retrospect. I do not understand how some people believe this fight was close. As a matter of fact, this was the most clear decision that Pacquiao won against Bradley, at least in my eyes, but I can see someone scoring it by the margins the judges had it at best. Bradley gave a very good effort and had some strong moments, but Pacquiao was simply much better in every department. This fight certainly cemented Pacquiao as 3-0 against Bradley in my opinion, with them being 28-8 in rounds against eachother, in what is one of the most one-sided feuds in boxing history. Regardless, the two only gave us great fights when they were in the ring with eachother.
