Its official. Manny Pacquiao will rematch WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The fight will be carried by HBO PPV. Bradley won a scrutinized split decision victory in their first fight. Although, most of the controversy was created by HBO’s horrendous announcing. This time around both fighters will be looking to leave no doubt who the better man is.
Bob Arum’s bold claims that Manny Pacquiao would continue to fight in China seem to have gone away after the star managed to sell only 400,000 buys in November. With all of his recent tax troubles Pacquiao will be sure to try and make as money as possible in his next few fights. Which makes the selection of Tim Bradley look all the more risky.
Look out for more details on this fight in the near future.
