World pound for pound champion Manny Pacquiao has vowed to do better in his forthcoming bout with challenger Timothy  Bradley as he climbs the ring this Saturday, June 09, 2012 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The eight-time champion, coming off a lackluster bout with nemesis Juan Manuel Marquez the last time out, has promised a good show for his countrymen as he goes against the unbeaten Bradley.

The fighting congressman from Sarangani Province is looking to earn his 55th ring victory over the unbeaten but raw Bradley.

Pacquiao climbs the ring with a 54 wins, 3 defeats and 2 draws with 38 knockouts against the 28-0 with 12 knockouts of Bradley.

Pacquiao admits he might have underestimated Marquez the last time out, as he was used to fighting bigger and stronger opponents prior to his 3rd encounter with the durable Mexican.

Bradley, known as the ‘Desert Storm’, got additional inputs from former world champion Tommy Hearns during his training for the Pacquiao bout.

Pacquiao is expected to get a 6 million dollar purse to Bradley’s 5 million but will likely earn more from television coverage cut and pay for view TV royalties.

Fil-American idol finalist Jessica Sanchez has been reportedly selected to sing the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ while Fil-Am singer Kirby Asunto from New Jersey will sing the ‘Lupang Hinirang’ before the fight.

Pacquiao earlier said he would have wanted Jessica to sing the Phil. National Anthem but appeared to have not worked out.

The fight will be carried live from Las Vegas here in the country by Solar Sports on Sunday, June 10.

Meanwhile, 2nd District Rep. Erbie A. Fabian predicts a victory by Manny Pacquiao over challenger Timothy Bradley this Sunday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas Nevada.

The solon, a licensed boxing promoter and manager himself said his colleague the 8-time world champion will dispatch off the American challenger and come off victorious.

Pacquiao is just too classy, and has much fight savvy than the undefeated Bradley, that there is no way for the challenger to defeat the fighting congressman from Sarangani.

‘I have seen Manny fight a couple of times at close range and he just has too much power, stamina and ring savvy over Bradley, the Blue Stallion Stable boss added.

The solon from Mercedes though declined to predict what round Bradley will fall only that the    Pacman will emerge triumphant in this Sunday’s match.

Fabian added, he wishes his colleague and close friend all the best in his bout where the Pacman’s WBO welterweight crown is at stake.
