The fight is a rematch between Pacquiao and Bradley. If you still remember their fight in 2012, it ended with controversial split decision. Bradley won on this fight.
Meanwhile, the former eight-division world champion already met personally the Grammy Award winning singer at the Knicks game in New York last month of this year.
The Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley fight is set to happen on April 12, 2014 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight will air in America on HBO pay-per-view.
