PALM SPRINGS, Calif. – For five days before Timothy Bradley faces Manny Pacquiao in their April 12 rematch, expect Bradley to observe his pre-fight ritual.

When asked if he is superstitious before a match, Bradley said he’s not ashamed to admit that he does not take a shower five days prior to the fight.

He said he only takes a shower on the day of the fight itself.

Bradley adds, he prays and meditates a lot before hitting the ring.

He says he is looking forward to fighting Pacquiao again to convince the public that he deserved his victory over Pacman in 2012.

Bradley is not the only fighter who has strange rituals. Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez said that drinking his own urine gives him strength and energy.

    Easy fight for MPacquiao, he can knock out Bradley if he wanted too, in my opinion the 1st fight, was fixed,2nd fight, will win by decision, so that there will be a 3rd fight, another easy $15M or more for Manny.
    Hanap buhay lang pare, basta magbayad kayo, okay lang. Matanda na si Manny dapat pipiliin ang makakalaban,ha-hakutin nalang ang pera nang mga fans.Kanya-kanyang racket lang….
