Pacquiao and Bradley Weigh In

Watch: Pacquiao and Bradley Weigh In

Published On April 9, 2016 | By Niall Doran | Boxing News

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.

Hat tip to our man on the ground, photographer Dan Sosa, who captured the above photo that he sent into us of the two fighters standing alongside the legendary Roberto Duran after yesterday’s weigh-in.
