Pacquiao and Bradley Clash Once More in April

It took nearly two years before they faced again, but to WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, the timing cannot be any more perfect as he defends his belt and his unbeaten record against Manny Pacquiao on April 13, Manila time, at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.


The 30-year old Bradley from California has a record of 31 wins, 12 by knockouts, no defeats, and one no contest. The more decorated Pacquiao carries a slate of 55 wins with 38 via KO, five losses, and two draws.

The boxer that has the moniker of “Desert Storm” wants to get his first fight with Pacquaio out of the back of his head so that he can move on in his career. Bradley also wants to prove that his split decision victory against “Pacman” was not a fluke as well as earn the respect that he believes is long overdue.

The Sarangani representative, meanwhile, is excited to fight in Las Vegas once more as he is raring to prove that he still has bite. His last bout that was held in Nevada was his knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez.

Both camps agreed to be tested by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association at random times. The two fighters will also receive lower purses when compared to their first meeting. Pacquiao will get a guaranteed 20 million USD, down from the 26 million USD he took in 2012, while Bradley will pocket six million USD, a million less from what he got the last time he locked horns with the “People’s Champ”.

Although the controversial decision in the first meeting is irrelevant according to Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, he wants judges outside of Nevada to be considered to score the PPV bout.

Arum believes that Bradley, whose contract with Top Rank got extended, is a different fighter from before as he won against Ruslan Provodnikov and Marquez after his conquest of Pacquiao. “Desert Storm” also feels that his second try against Manny will be much easier, claiming that the eight-time world champion is a dimensional pugilist.

Pacquiao countered by predicting that Bradley would resort to backpedalling and running away in their match to avoid getting hit.

Will the champion get his due or will the more experienced challenger vindicate himself? This will be answered in April in Las Vegas.
