Manny Pacquiao To Face Timothy Bradley In Rematch [Video]

Manny Pacquiao will not be facing Floyd Mayweather next fight.

He will get a chance to avenge his loss and regain the WBO welterweight belt April 12 against Timothy Bradley (31-0, 12 KOs). The current champion defeated “Pac-Man” (55-5-2, 38 KOs) on June 9, 2012 in a fight that many people thought was robbed from the Filipino champion.

According to Nick Giongco of the Manila Bulletin,

The formal announcement will be made next week and a whirlwind press tour will follow in the first week of February with Los Angeles as the first stop on Feb. 4 and New York on Feb. 5.

This could possibly be another step stone to a potential fight with Floyd Mayweather in the future.

Take a look at some highlights from the first fight below.
