Manny Pacquiao Set To Fight Tim Bradley On June 9 At MGM

Tuesday February 7th, 2012

WBO welterweight beltholder Manny Pacquiao has settled on WBO junior Welterweight titleholder Tim Bradley as his next opponent, but terms with Bradley still need to be worked out before the contract is signed, according's Chris Mannix.

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum met with Michael Koncz, Pacquiao’s advisor, and Cameron Dunkin, Bradley’s manager last weekend in San Antonio, Texas where Arum was promoting the fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Marco Antonio Rubio.

Arum’s plan is to match up the winner of the Pacquiao-Bradley fight against the winner of the Marquez-Peterson fighter later in November.
