Saturday, Bradley, who is facing WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao on June 9, is telling the world that Latinos are uniting behind him because he is married to a Latin American woman.

This is what Bradley said to RingTV:

"My wife is Latin American, and the Latino community is embracing me, especially in my home town. Absolutely. That's the case, not only in my community, but everywhere. Everybody wants to see this guy go down, and everybody wants me to be the guy to take him out.

"That's what I feel and that's how I see it. The Latin community has embraced me in this fight. Because they want someone to beat this guy. Pacquiao has beaten a lot of Latin fighters, you know, and their champions.

"A lot of Mexican fighters have lost to this guy, and they're looking for someone that's friendly and someone that's humble and someone that's hungry and someone that's with them as well, and that's me."

Bradley is the current WBO junior welterweight champion. He has a 28-0 record with 12 KOs. Pacquiao is one of the best fighters in the history of boxing and boasts a 54-3-2 record with 38 KOs. He can also sing with the best of them:
