Don’t sleep on Desert Storm in this one folks. The guy has never lost a professional fight, and continues to prove his doubters wrong. He has the kind of awkward style and come-forward pressure attack which could potentially bother Pacquiao. Of course, the big question will be if Bradley can keep up with Pacquiao’s speed and power, and ultimately, that will determine the fight’s outcome.

There’s many months left to debate how the fight will play out though. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures from the Pacquiao and Bradley opening press conference and commercial video shoot.
