BOXING: Timothy Bradley 'considered suicide' after Manny Pacquiao win

Published:Friday | April 11, 2014 | 1:36 PM

American boxer Timothy Bradley says he considered taking his own life because of abuse he received following his controversial points win over Manny Pacquiao in 2012.

Bradley was awarded a split decision victory, despite most observers believing Pacquiao had won the contest.

The rematch, for the WBO welterweight title, is in Las Vegas this weekend.

The 30-year-old Bradley, who is undefeated in 32 fights, received hate mail, death threats and abuse at petrol stations following his last meeting with Pacquiao.

The rematch on Sunday will be at the same venue, the MGM Grand, and Bradley says he has overcome his demons with the help of his family.
