This weekend's welterweight clash between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley is for a world title, but it has been slightly overshadowed by the heavyweight title action in the UK between American Charles Martin and Britain's Anthony Joshua. Despite this, we thought it would be important to take a look at the Pacquiao Bradley 3 betting odds for fans looking to roll…
Watch: Pacquiao and Bradley Weigh In
The scene is now set for Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley’s third fight tonight with both men comfortably weighing inside the welterweight 147lbs limit.
Both boxers took to the scales in Las Vegas knowing that this fight more than likely will be the rubber match in a trilogy of battles.
The score is currently 1-1 between the two in their previous fights, so it’s all to play for tonight. Bradley came in at 146.5lbs while Pacquiao weighed-in at 145.5lbs ahead of tonight’s world welterweight title bout.
Bookmakers have the fight a close affair but many within the game feel that the time might be right for Bradley to win the trilogy, although Pacquiao certainly has enough skills left to win if he’s on form.
