As he readies for his June 9 HBO pay-per-view fight with Manny Pacquiao, undefeated challenger Timothy Bradley will share some thoughts each week. In this installment, Bradley discusses with HBO what his interests are when he's not in training for a big fight. Q: What do you like to do when you are not training for a fight? Do you play or watch other sports? Do you have any particular role models? Timothy Bradley: Even though I'm a world-champion fighter, I enjoy offseasons like other professional athletes and I like to make the most of my free time. Like any other sports fan, I enjoy watching football and basketball on television, as well as spending time with friends and family. I'm a homebody, even during training camp because I train at a local gym and stay at home. My wife and kids keep me grounded, and I like to stay involved in their day-to-day lives even when training camp is in full gear. When I'm not training I serve as president of the Junior All-American Football and Cheer program and help coach any of the teams my son plays on. I have a great appreciation for the head coaches and how they teach and motivate. I'm honored to assist them. It's really been a lot of fun watching my son and his friends develop as players and teammates over the years. It's been a very rewarding experience. I also attend as many school functions for my kids as possible. Back-to-school nights, PTO, you name it -- my wife and I are there. I'm amazed at what they are teaching our kids and how early these subjects are being taught to them. So much of it is fascinating. It's always fun going to career day at my kids' schools. With one in elementary and the other in middle school, you can imagine the differences in questions I am asked! My favorite time of day is the morning, when my daughter and I walk to school together. It's a great time to just chat about anything that's on her mind. It's our time and I really treasure it. Pacquiao vs. Bradley takes place June 9 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT.
