For the third time, Welterweight boxers Manny (PacMan) Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley will come head to head, in what could be Pacquiao's last fight. Who will come out on top? Here is more information about the fight, including how and when to watch this fight on Pay per view and other live streaming sources and previews on-line.
The first fight between these two happened in 2012, as Bradley took the win, albeit a highly disputed one. Two years later, in 2014, Pacquiao was victorious over Bradley, winning on points. This year will be the deciding year between the two rivals- best two out of three determining the true winner. Manny Pacquiao is coming into this fight 57-6-2 with 38 KOs. Timothy Bradley is 33-1-1 with 13 KOs. Pacquiao has not announced that this will be his last fight, but according to his trainer, Hall of Famer Freddie Roach says, "I don't know if this will be Manny's last fight, but he is training like it's going to be his last fight. Manny has achieved so much in his boxing career, and if this is going to be his swan song, I know he wants to go out blazing with a spectacular performance... He knows how to close the show and he wants this show closed with fireworks... [But] I do think Manny has more quality fights in him. His power, speed, and work ethic are still superior."
This fight could be anybody's game. World-class welterweight Jessie Vargas proclaimed,"It's a true 50/50 fight."
