Manny Pacquiao will face Timothy Bradley on Saturday night in one of the most eagerly awaited boxing matches of the year. This rematch is built upon the controversy surrounding the points decision for Bradley in the first fight, and that just goes to make this match up even more exciting. The fight action will start at 9 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on HBO PPV, or online through live stream (details below).
Tonight's Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 rematch will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and unusually both fighters have something to prove tonight.
Pacquiao has suffered a few defeats of late, resulting in some questioning whether he has now gone past his prime and that his career is now going downhill.
Bradley meanwhile, knows that a massive majority of fans do not believe he won the original fight against Pacquiao. When the points decision was announced in his favor with a split decision there was a massive outcry against the judges, and he will be looking to gain a second win over Pacquiao tonight to prove his doubters wrong and convince everyone that he is the better fighter.
The eight-division world champions, Pacquiao, will be looking to rectify what he and his followers believe was an unjust decision against him in the first fight, and he no doubt will be going for the knock out.
In the first fight between the two, most pundits believed that Pacquiao had clearly out-boxed Bradley, but they also highlighted that he was never able to land the knock out punch. That allowed things to go to the judges' scorecards, and increasingly these days that means that anything can happen.
Pacquiao will not be wanting to leave anything to doubt tonight though, and he will be weary to allow this one to go to the judges again. He will be looking to outbox his opponent and gain the illusive knock out.
Pacquiao vs Bradley 2 will start at 9 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on HBO PPV. The fight can also be watched online with a PPV live stream available on Top Rank TV.
