Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley traded verbal jabs outside the ring during the premiere of HBO's Face Off with Max Kellerman last Saturday, Ring TV reported.

The two fighters, who appeared as guests on the show, were given the freedom to discuss anything related to their upcoming fight.

Bradley started off by telling the Pacman to his face that he is not the same fighter as before. He said, "I don't know how he lost it. Before, he was malicious. Before, he was blazing, like, 'I'm going to knock you out, I don't care.' But now, he's in a different place now."

He added "I'm telling you, he's not the same. He's not the same. I'm telling you. He's a tremendous fighter, like I've told you. He's a tremendous fighter. But I don't see it. I do not see it"

Pacquiao responded, "I pray that God can give me that fire, another fire. I will pray for that."

Then, Bradley opened up about his controversial win against Pacquiao during their first fight. He said, "This is like redemption. It's unfinished business. This is like that dark cloud that's still looming over boxing. Like, confused about who won the fight and who didn't win the fight."

He continued, "I don't think that you're old. I don't think that you're not a great fighter. You're a great fighter. You're a tremendous fighter. But I just feel that it's my time, and that's it. That's all. That's all that it is. I have nothing bad to say about you, Manny, I just feel that it's my time."

The Filipino fighter replied, "My time is not finished yet. My time is not done yet. I can say that. They should watch the fight to get rid of all of the question marks in their minds. This will answer all of the questions from the past. The last fight that we had, this is the answer on April 12."

But Bradley strongly disagreed with Pacquiao's statement and countered, "I won the fight eight-to-four in Pacquiao-Bradley. I won that fight eight-to-four by out-boxing him. He missed the majority of the punches in threw in that one."

He continued, "Manny, the only way that you're going to beat me is that you've got to knock me out. That's the only way that you're going to beat me, Manny. If you don't knock me out, Manny, you're not gonna win. I'm telling you that right now - you're not gonna win."

Pacquiao responded and said that he's going to return to the ring as a more aggressive fighter. He said, "Sometimes, I'm so nice to my opponent. But this time, I need to bring back the aggressiveness. I have to focus and train hard and, not like before, underestimate him. I have to focus and get back the aggressiveness."

"I'm just too nice, sometimes...My plan in this fight is to throw a lot of punches. More than [in the Rios fight.]" He added, "I don't care if the fight is stopped or not. This time, I have to prove that I can still give a good show. That I'm a hungry Manny Pacquiao"
