On April 9th, 2016, ##Pacquiao vs Bradley 3## will face each other again for the 3rd time. The first fight that they had was on 2012 and Bradley won from a controversial decision which was the reason for their rematch last 2014. The second encounter was full of action and Pacquiao won that fight without controversy. For some reason and because of the new trainer that Tim Bradley is having nowadays, they come to an agreement that they will fight each other again for the 3rd time which is set to be held at MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. You might be saying that there is no reason to watch this fight anymore as Manny Pacquiao has nothing to prove BUT because of the well known trainer, Atlas, then this will be a very exciting fight that you should never be missed to watch. Rumors say that this will be Manny Pacquiao’s last fight and before he will retire from boxing, he aims for a knockout. The last fight that he won via knockout was against Algieri few years ago.

Pacquiao vs Bradley 3 Fight Now Official
Manny Pacquiao is set to make an announcement at Puerto Rico. A fight between fellow Filipino Nonito Donaire against Cesar Juarez will take place and some boxers will be in attendance to watch the bout. Rumors have spread that Pacquiao is most likely to pick Timothy Bradley or Terence Crawford. Amir Khan is already slashed off the list as he will be fighting against IBF Welterweight Champion Kell Brook. ‘King Khan’ is not fighting Pacquiao so, it is now down to two names.
Timothy Bradley will serve as a commentator at the Donaire-Juarez battle on Friday. Many are expecting that Bradley will be the next opponent for Pacquiao since it would be disrespectful for Pacquiao not to pick Bradley on his broadcast. The Pacquiao vs Bradley 3 would occur on April 9 2016, official statements have been released by Pacquiao’s camp on December 31, 2015.
Manny Pacquiao Retirement
Meanwhile, Pacquiao has himself ready for retirement, after just one more fight in 2016. He promised to quit boxing and go on in serving his people in public office. Many still wants to see Pacquiao on the ring and do his job as a boxer rather than a politician. If he wins the election as a senator, he will certainly be focused on politics and not boxing anymore.
If Pacquiao chooses Bradley, pay per view may not be an option since not too many fans are interested to see Bradley. Fans may have the idea of how the fight will go on and find it quite boring. In 2012, Bradley took home the belt while a rematch in 2014 made Pacquiao a winner. Now, the third installment of the Pacman vs Bradley 3 is unpredictable. Pacquiao coming from a loss to Mayweather Jr. is hungry for a win and Bradley recently winning against Rios is definitely a great motivation to uplift his career.
“I think Crawford has a very good chance of beating Manny Pacquiao”, Bradley commented. Crawford’s youth is his advantage but many thinks it is still not the right time for Crawford to face a veteran Pacquiao. Not until Friday, Pacquiao is still undecided. Reports say that Pacquiao may have doubts about a rematch with Bradley.
