On a hot Wednesday afternoon in a strip mall near a busy Los Angeles street corner, a congressman was beating up an elderly and defenseless man. It was almost as one-sided as the Manny Pacquiao-Tim Bradley fight that two judges on duty that night failed to see. No police were summoned. No 911 calls made. This was sanctioned assault, also known know as boxing training camp. You knew immediately where you were, from the " pop, pop, pop" of boxing gloves colliding in the ring, and from the moisture forming under your arms.

Manny Pacquiao's workouts have brought in some heavyweights of life. MGM billionaire Kirk Kerkorian, Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant, a slew of major Hollywood actors, famed singers and others have stopped by gritty Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood to watch the famed Filipino boxer train. Thursday, Pacquiao's publicist said “the most extraordinary thing I've ever seen with Pacquiao” happened when legendary musician Bob Dylan came by. Dylan, a boxing fan who co-wrote the 1975 song “Hurricane,” protesting the imprisonment on a murder case of boxer Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, and formerly worked out with former boxer Bruce Strauss and at the new Wild Card gym in Santa Monica, watched Pacquiao's entire workout, which included eight rounds of sparring.

Juan Manuel Marquez's promoter in Mexico said Monday that the fighter was pleased with terms for a May 17 fight against Mike Alvarado at the Forum, and has had a change of heart and is open to a fifth fight against Manny Pacquiao. Marquez (55-7-1, 40 knockouts) told promoter Fernando Beltran he wants to share the Alvarado offer with his wife, and trainer “Nacho” Beristain, to get their input, then will meet again with Beltran on Thursday in Mexico City. The 40-year-old Marquez, who last fought and lost a split decision to Timothy Bradley in October in Las Vegas, previously said he wasn't interested in a fifth fight against Pacquiao, who fights for Bradley's World Boxing Organization welterweight belt April 12 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Timothy Bradley laid out some valid points about why he believes his April 12 rematch against Manny Pacquiao will be even more impressive than their June 2012 fight that Bradley won by a controversial split decision. "He can still punch like hell, but I feel the killer instinct is gone," Bradley said Tuesday in Beverly Hills, where he and Pacquiao launched the promotion of their HBO pay-per-view bout at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The 35-year-old Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KOs), with more than triple the number of Bradley's knockouts, was asked about that zinger.

Timothy Bradley won his first fight against Manny Pacquiao according to two judges, the fighter himself and a few close friends. Now that he has a rematch scheduled April 12 at MGM Grand, he's counting on a return to full physical health and the confidence generated by two 2013 victories to win definitively. “I've been ridiculed, disrespected, demonized,” Bradley said Tuesday, as he and Pacquiao took part in a news conference at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Tickets, scaled from $150 to $1,000, go on sale Wednesday.
