Timothy Bradley: 'Manny Pacquiao one of the greats'

Timothy Bradley describes Manny Pacquiao as "one of the best" after losing his WBO welterweight title to the Filipino in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Timothy Bradley has described Manny Pacquiao as "one of the best" after losing his WBO welterweight title to the Filipino in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Pacquiao sealed a unanimous points victory to regain the belt, having lost it to Bradley in a highly controversial split decision 22 months ago.

The American, who was undefeated prior to the bout, connected with the chin of the 35-year-old in the ninth, but it was not enough to secure the knockout he promised.

He told reporters: "I tried. I really tried. I wanted that knockout. Manny's a great fighter, maybe one of the best ever. I lost to one of the best."

Pacquiao's win has since re-fuelled speculation over a potential fight with Floyd Mayweather.
