Manny Pacquiao has reportedly agreed to fight Timothy Bradley on June 9th at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Pacquiao has agreed to the contract that Top Rank has drafted, and does not expect Bradley’s camp to have a problem with the numbers or weight. Most fight fans have been waiting for a Pacquiao vs Mayweather Mega Fight, but with Mayweather having to announce who he was fighting at a Nevada Athletic Commission Board Hearing, he announced his next fight was with Miguel Cotto. That left Pacquiao with only 3 available options, who to fight next. One was Lamont Peterson, who recently beat Amir Khan, a rematch with Juan Manuel Marquez (who won the fight in many fans eyes), and Timothy Bradley.
In my personal opinion, Timothy Bradley was the best possible option for Pacquiao because Bradley is a strong junior welterweight fighter and the only thing that can hurt Bradley is the inexperiance in title fights. Pacquiao would have proven too much for Lamont Peterson, and has already beaten Cotto and a rematch with Marquez would be too soon judging the way the first fight was fought. So on June 9th will be Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley at the MGM in Vegas!
