Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley are just a few weeks away from their HBO pay-per-view rematch, and the "24/7" coverage from HBO starts tonight.

HBO's "24/7" returns tonight, this time covering the April 12 pay-per-view rematch between top welterweights Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, who first met in 2012. On June 9 of that year, Bradley (31-0, 12 KO) won a shocking and highly controversial split decision.

Going into the first fight, a Bradley victory seemed to guarantee a rematch that November, but Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KO) instead chose to fight Juan Manuel Marquez, feeling it was the bigger and more desired fight, which at the time was true. Marquez knocked out Pacquiao in the sixth round. After that, Bradley had a pair of impressive wins in 2013 over Ruslan Provodnikov and Marquez, while Pacquiao returned in November to handily outpoint Brandon Rios in Macao.

Now, two years after the first fight, Pacquiao and Bradley are lined up to do it again, and hopefully settle the score. Both men have a lot to prove. At 35, Pacquiao wants to show he's still an elite fighter. Bradley, meanwhile, is looking to prove to any remaining skeptics that he's truly a top guy, and that he can beat Manny with no controversy.

"24/7" will start after the live HBO Boxing After Dark doubleheader, which begins at 10:00 pm EDT.
