Timothy Bradley talks about his rematch with Manny Pacquiao

"This is all about redemption. I need Manny. He needs me. I'm going to beat him again. I am younger and a better fighter. Manny fights for the money. I have the hunger to win.
“I scored our fight eight rounds to four in my favor.  No way he won that fight.
“Manny is great but he is also mortal.  I’m not intimidated by him or his legend.
"Manny didn't look the same against Rios. He didn't have his usual killer instinct. That's the first thing I noticed.

“I don’t think he has the hunger anymore and it’s never coming back.  He no longer has his killer instinct.  That’s the first thing I noticed in the Rios fight.  Every time he backed Rios into a corner, Manny stepped back instead of going for it.  He didn’t even try to put Rios away.  That spoke volumes to me.  

"When I fought Márquez I knew my quickness would come into play. I set traps and used my quickness. I fought with intelligence. I used my pure boxing skills.

"I know all about Manny. I went into the ring with him. I felt his best punches.

"Me, I am a different fighter than the one who fought Pacquiao in our first fight. I am more mature, smarter, and I now listen to what my corner is saying."
