Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley Comes Closer to Fruition

Timothy Bradley
While Manny Pacquiao has agreed to terms for a fight with Tim Bradley on June 9th, I’m told that ’the Desert Storm’ still hasn’t finalized his deal. But that could be done as soon as tomorrow as his manager Cameron Dunkin will be meeting with Top Rank on Tuesday. Look for this fight to take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Just my opinion, while Bradley is a good fighter, he’s not the most marketable name. I think Top Rank really needs to load up this undercard.

- If his hand, which was damaged this past weekend in San Antonio against Wilfredo Vazquez Jr, Nonito Donaire could be facing Jorge Arce in May, I’m told.

- And it looks like a bout between former WBA lightweight titlist, Brandon Rios and Yuriorkis Gamboa for April 14th at the Mandalay Bay is coming closer to becoming a reality.

- What was the most impressive thing about the turnout for this past weekends bout at the Alamodome in San Antonio? The San Antonio Spurs- the big game in town there- had a home game that same night versus Kevin Durant and the OKC Thunder. Yet still over 14,000 fans showed up to see Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. take on Marco Antonio Rubio. .
