Well ladies and gentleman, we are going to get a third installment of Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley, even though most people can careless to see it happen. The finale of the trilogy is scheduled to take place April 9th in Las Vegas. Pacquiao’s promoter, Bob Arum, says Pac-man will retire after the fight but from the sounds of it he wants another shot at Mayweather before he walks away for good.


Nobody really cares about Pacquiao/Bradley 3 because the first two fights were boring as well. In the first fight, Pacquiao clearly beat Bradley down but the judges shocked the world when they announced Bradley as the winner. It was another black eye for the sport full of them because the stench of the fight being rigged reeked across the country.

In the rematch, Pacquiao again beat Bradley down, this time he wasn’t robbed my judges though and won easily. Nobody really expects much from a third fight.

Pacquiao might be talking about politics after the fight but he still wants another fight with Floyd Mayweather. While the first one was “boring” to the casual fan, it was really a display of how good Mayweather is. Pacquiao couldn’t do much to make it better because he was overmatched. The payout for a rematch will be crazy however and he knows it.

“I have been very vocal about it (fighting Mayweather) even before the Bradley fight was made official on New Year’s eve,” Pacquiao explained to Philboxing.com. “The reason is simple, I want to end my 21-year boxing career with a big bang so to speak.”

“And what would be the biggest fight to end a career than fighting the best and finest boxer at least in this era? We could have given that last May when we faced each other but due to unavoidable circumstances, sports fans failed to get the results they wanted. Not that Floyd’s legacy and mine can still be questioned but wouldn’t it be more colorful and meaningful closing our respective careers on higher notes at the same time putting an end, too, on the business we started but we were unable to finish?”

At this point though, Floyd really does appear to be finished with the sport so the odds of a rematch are slim because he will have to be a willing participant. When money talks however, you never know.
