Pacquiao vs Bradley Video: HBO Under the Lights Preview

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

HBO's Under the Lights feature is back to preview Saturday night's fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley. As always, I think it's a nice visual tool, especially for more casual fans:


Odds have actually come down for the fight in recent days, and the bout is now favored to go to the 12-round distance. These odds are from Bovada:

Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao -450
Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley +325

Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley

Over Rounds O 9½ (-280)
Under Rounds U 9½ (+190)

Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley - Method of Victory

Manny Pacquiao By Decision or Technical Decision 11/10
Manny Pacquiao by KO, TKO or DQ 8/5
Timothy Bradley by Decision or Technical Decision 11/2
Timothy Bradley by KO, TKO, or DQ 9/1
Draw 25/1

Things are shaping up for an interesting fight on Saturday, I think. Right now, I won't lie, from my perspective as a guy running a boxing site, this fight has not bought the buzz that a lot of these events do. It just hasn't. This might be more a Friday-Saturday-beyond fight than an all-week media circus, at least as compared to something like Mayweather-Cotto or Pacquiao-Marquez.

Any bets on the PPV numbers for this thing? Since it's unlikely to be some huge impressive number, we probably won't know, but I could see this one slipping below the one million threshold, to be honest.
