Pacquiao to fight Bradley in April

Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao, boxing’s only eight-division titleholder, will fight welterweight titleholder Timothy Bradley Jr. for a third time on April 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum said he had already wired Pacquiao a $2 million advance against his $20 million guaranteed purse to seal the deal. Although many considered neither of the first two bouts as impressive or competitive, Arum said he believes Bradley is a different fighter than he was the first two times.

Pacquiao will be fighting for the first time in 11 months after losing a unanimous decision to Floyd Mayweather in their record-shattering welterweight title unification fight on May 2.
