It has been 11 months since Manny Pacquiao fought Floyd Mayweather, and it ended with a loss on his part. Manny Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38 KOs), who is now 37, is about to face off against Timothy Bradley (33-1-1, 13 KOs) this Saturday at 9:00 PM ET/6:00 PM PT on HBO PPV, and this fight could be his last. This is the latest news on Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley April 9 Fight Live Streaming and Preview also how to Watch Online WBO 2016, with TV Schedule (HBO Start Time).
There is a lot on this fight if it is Manny's last, as Pacquiao fought Bradley in 2012 with Bradley taking home what has been a very disputed decision win. Then, in 2014, Pacquiao took home the victory competitively but not clearly, according to HBO Boxing. With a fight between these two fighters every two years, 2016 is going to be quite a show between these two rivals as the best 2 out of 3 will determine who will have the rep as a better fighter. Pacquiao has not formally announced that this is his last fight but his trainer says that Manny is training like it is.
World-class welterweight Jessie Vargas, who has lost in a fight with Bradley before, says that "it's a true 50/50 fight", and the two fighters made their grand arrivals into Las Vegas Tuesday, with hundreds of cheering fans. The actual fight itself will be taking place on Saturday in the MGM Grand Garden Arena, and it really could be anyone's fight.
