MANILA, Philippines – Boxing coach Robert Garcia said a rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley would be interesting to watch.

He said the result of the first fight was so controversial that people would like to see how the second one will turn out.

"Timothy Bradley gave Pacquiao a hell of a fight and now, the second one, people are going to want to watch it because a lot of people were not happy with the results,” Garcia, mentor of Filipino champion Nonito Donaire Jr., said in Examiner.

“Everybody thought Pacquiao won that fight so it's going to be a very interesting fight."

Garcia said if Bradley gets the rematch, the American boxer would likely make adjustments to prove himself the rightful winner.

Bradley hammered out a split decision win in their 12-round encounter last June.

The decision was deemed controversial by several boxing pundits, who saw Pacquiao as the more dominant fighter in the bout.

Garcia said he is excited to see Pacquiao and Bradley slug it out again.

"I think Timothy Bradley will come in even stronger and with a better game plan. That's actually a fight I'm looking forward to," said the boxing trainer.

Pacquiao has yet to announce his next foe on November 10.

Among those believed to be in the shortlist of possible opponents for Pacquiao are Bradley, Juan Manuel Marquez and Miguel Cotto.
