Here’s How to Beat Pacquiao

Published by Michelle Kretzer.

The still-undefeated Timothy Bradley, who brought down Manny “Pac-Man” Pacquiao like a blue ghost on Saturday, might have had an unfair advantage: He follows a vegan training regimen. The welterweight is famously hard on left-handers, but he’s easy on animals.

In this clip, in which he talks about why he loves eating vegan meals, Bradley explains, “I just feel completely different. I feel superior over any athlete I get in the ring with. You know, energy is there.”

PETA’s love is there for Bradley and his cruelty-free training sessions, so we’re sending him some congratulatory flowers to thank him for joining athletes such as Lance Armstrong, Rich Roll, Jake Shields, Mac Danzig, Daniel Bryan, and many more in proving the power of plants!
