Tonight at 9:00 pm EDT on HBO pay-per-view, Manny Pacquiao returns to the ring for what is being advertised as the final time, as the 37-year-old Filipino legend comes back to face Timothy Bradley for the third time in a 12-round welterweight main event.

Pacquiao (56-7-1, 38 KO) hasn't fought in 11 months and is coming off of not just a loss, but a shoulder surgery, as well. Bradley (33-1-1, 13 KO) is looking to get what he calls a "decisive" victory over Pacquiao, after scoring a highly controversial win in 2012, followed by Pacquiao winning their 2014 rematch.

There will be three fights on the PPV undercard, opening with Jose Ramirez (16-0, 12 KO) facing Manny Perez (25-11-1, 6 KO) in a 10-round junior welterweight bout, followed by Oscar Valdez (18-0, 16 KO) taking on Evgeny Gradovich (21-1-1, 9 KO) in a 10-round featherweight fight. The main undercard attraction will be a WBO super middleweight title fight between Arthur Abraham (44-4, 29 KO) and Gilberto Ramirez (33-0, 24 KO).

Wil Esco will be here for live round by round updates. Join us for the fights!
