After 22 months, Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley are finally set to have their rematch. PacMan lost the WBO welterweight title to Bradley on Jun 9, 2012, and he looks to take it back on Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Bradley shocked fans and the media in the first bout between the two boxers, winning a split decision that many felt he didn’t deserve. Since the victory, though, he’s proven himself to be among the best in the sport. In November, Pacquiao got his first win in nearly two years.
The event is set to begin at 9 p.m. ET on HBO PPV. If will cost fans $69.99 in HD and $59.99 in standard definition. Viewers can also watch a live stream online with Top Rank TV for $59.95.
