How am I wrong? Manny in particular was rather "mum" the whole time. Not a classic Manny chuckle, no predictions from Roach, just a bunch of behind kissing. "He wasn't our first choice" reads deeper than them not getting Mayweather.
They wanted no part of Bradley. They couldn't lure Cotto into a rematch. They didn't want Marquez again and certainly didn't want to negotiate a higher cut for him in a rematch. A few other guys fell through before they pulled the trigger on this fight at this point in time. It was going to happen after Bradley signed with Top Rank but wasn't supposed to happen just yet.
If you think it's "business as usual" at Team Pacquiao you're wrong. That's not a matter of opinion, it's fact. It may very well be Shi shi nai nai for Bradley Saturday. However, we've already seen the best of Pacquiao. We haven't seen the best of Bradley. Be acutely aware of that fact.
It still probably won't matter, as Bradley would probably have to beat Manny with the ring post to get the nod on the cards. As long as a fight with Mayweather is still possible although not probable, nobody is going to darn with that type of money.
