Teddy Atlas and Timothy Bradley Bonding Well Ahead of Pacquiao Fight

Published On February 17, 2016 | By Niall Doran | Boxing News

Many boxing fans will remember trainer Atlas’ famous remarks in between rounds last year to Bradley “We are firemen!” during his fight with Brandon Rios, in what was probably one of the most passionate coach corner talks in recent boxing history. Now it appears they are taking that analogy to the next level.


Bradley returns to the ring for a third fight with Filipino boxing great Manny Pacquiao on April 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The previous two encounters between both men ended in unanimous decision victory for Pacquiao last time out, and before that, a highly controversial split decision win for Bradley.

That was before Bradley hooked up with long time respected coach and figure within the game Teddy Atlas however, and it appears the coach-fighter bond in the lead up to the fight is going rather well at the moment:
