Tonight at 9:00 pm EDT on HBO pay-per-view (US), BoxNation (UK), and other channels around the world, Manny Pacquiao will face Timothy Bradley in a rematch of their stunning 2012 controversy, as Pacquiao looks to regain the WBO welterweight title, and Bradley looks to prove he really is better than the legendary Filipino.
Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KO) beat Brandon Rios in November, following the "loss" to Bradley and then a brutal knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez. Last year, Bradley (31-0, 12 KO) made back-to-back statements in a Fight of the Year against Ruslan Provodnikov and then a great win over Marquez in October.
On the undercard tonight, Ray Beltran (28-6-1, 17 KO) faces Arash Usmanee (20-1-1, 10 KO) in a lightweight bout that looks to be serving as a non-official eliminator to face WBO lightweight titleholder Terence Crawford this summer. Khabib Allakhverdiev (19-0, 9 KO) will defend the "regular" WBA junior welterweight title against Jessie Vargas (23-0, 9 KO). And in the opening PPV fight, Bryan Vasquez (32-1, 17 KO) will face Jose Felix Jr (26-0-1, 21 KO) in a 12-round super featherweight bout for Vasquez's interim WBA belt.
We will have live round-by-round coverage and immediate post-fight recaps and analysis for each bout. Join us tonight!
