We take our attention to Manny Pacquiao’s 66th career fight and probably his last in long illustrious career where he won titles in 5 different weight categories. This will be his first fight since getting beaten by Mayweather in mega bout last year.
Timothy Bradley (33-1-1 KO’s 13) on the other hand is coming into this fight on the back of wins against Brandon Rios and Jesse Vargas in year 2015. While his 2014 was his low point when he lost his only defeat in the career against Manny Pacquiao in the rematch while a controversial draw against Diego Chaves.
