Watch the highlights video below:
Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley fight will take place tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Boxing fans can tune into HBO Pay-Per-View at 9 p.m. ET to watch the rematch between champions Manny Pacquaio and Timothy Bradley.
Pacquiao will be looking to regain his world championship title from Bradley, whom he lost to last year in a controversial split decision after 12 rounds. The first time the pair met, Bradley won after 12 rounds in a controversial split decision.
Talk of a rematch had began almost immediately after the 115-113, 115-113, 113-115 defeat.
After losing his WBO Welterweight title, Pacquiao told The National, "We feel we got robbed in the last fight. Now we need to be sure that we get the victory."
Bradley feels confident that he will come out as the victor in tonight's match. "I have already beat Pacquiao once and that was on my first try," he told GMA News. "I don't think I have to knock him out to get a definite result, but if the knockout presents itself I will take advantage of it.
HBO boxing analyst Max Kellerman says: "I would say it's a safe assumption that Pacquiao is a little worse than he was two years ago. He got knocked out. He's a little older. Once you're past your prime, you don't tend to get better with age. I came away from the Brandon Rios fight [Pacquiao's last fight, a lopsided decision win last November] wondering, where is the whirling dervish Pacquiao? He always used movement, but it was to overwhelm guys, not to pick them apart."
