PRESS STATEMENT FROM GMA-7:
With the vacant WBO International Welterweight title on the line, the exciting third match up between Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley will be aired by GMA Network exclusively on free TV this Sunday, April 10.
Titled PacBrad III, the fight will be aired via satellite from the MGM Grand, Garden Arena in Las Vegas at 10:00AM (PHL time) on GMA-7 with a primetime replay on GMA Sunday Night Box Office at 10:30PM.
Kapuso audiences across the country can also catch the live blow-by-blow action on Super Radyo DZBB 594, Barangay LS 97.1 and all RGMA stations nationwide beginning 9:00AM.
It is Pacquiao’s first fight since succumbing to a loss in his highly-publicized match against Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in May 2015, while Bradley is fresh off a win against Brandon Rios in November of the same year.
The 35-year-old Pacquiao boasts a 57-6-2 (W-L-D) record including 38 knockout wins. Meanwhile, the 30-year-old Bradley holds a 33-1-1 record and 13 knockout wins, with his single loss care of the rematch against Pacquiao in 2014.
Pacquiao and Bradley first faced off in the ring in 2012 which resulted in a highly controversial 12 round split decision in favor of the latter. With such a contested outcome, the World Boxing Organization (WBO), which sanctioned the fight, reviewed the video of the match. While the independent review scored the match in favor of the People’s Champ, in accordance with boxing regulations, the decision was not overturned.
A rematch was set in April 2014 where Pacquiao regained glory in a unanimous win against Bradley, the previously undefeated defending champion.
As the only fighter to defeat Bradley, Pacquiao is looking to give the California native his second loss as they come head to head in the boxing ring.
Catch the exciting match up only on GMA-7, Super Radyo DZBB, Barangay LS 97.1 and all RGMA stations nationwide.
