MANILA, Philippines – If Manny Pacquiao decides to fight on, Timothy Bradley should be the most logical choice for his next bout, according to a mixed martial arts (MMA) trainer.
“I know he doesn't want to end his career like that, so you know he's coming back and maybe he goes with Bradley and Marquez goes with Rios,” MMA coach Ron Frazier said in Fight Hype.
“If I was him, I'm like, ‘I beat this guy at least eight rounds to four. I can do it again,’” he added.
Frazier was referring to Pacquiao’s controversial loss to Bradley last June in a fight most people believe the Filipino won.
He said Pacquiao could at least get a small amount of redemption in a Bradley rematch, especially after the Filipino suffered a sixth-round knockout defeat to Juan Manuel Marquez
“It's not like Bradley is the biggest puncher in the world. If I was Pacquiao and Freddie Roach, I'm rooting for a Bradley rematch,” said Frazier.
“If he wins that and then he could fight Marquez for a fifth time or say, ‘You know what? I'm done.’”
