Bob Arum has announced that Manny Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38 KOs) will fight fellow Top Rank boxer Timothy Bradley (33-1-1, 13 KOs) on April 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“It’s a done deal and it’s going to be a third fight against Timothy Bradley,” said Arum. “We took a lot of consideration knowing Bradley has improved a lot as a fighter since the last time they’ve met in 2014”.

The upcoming contest will be the third time the pair have squared off against one another. Bradley won the first encounter in 2012, via a dubious decision, seen by many as a “robbery”. However, two years later, in the rematch, Pacquiao was able to avenge his loss with a unanimous decision victory.

In essence, with Pacquiao vs Bradley III, we are seeing a trilogy where one fighter has, quite comfortably, won the first two encounters.
