MANNY PACQUIAO HAS no regrets losing to Floyd Maywether. He has been away from the boxing scene after that fight focusing on his senatorial candidacy in the Philippines. On one of his interviews, he stated that he has never rested this long in his entire boxing career and he is ready to take on Timothy Bradley on April 9 at MGM Grand Arena.
These two boxers have fought in the ring twice since 2012. Bradley won the first one through a controversial split- decision and Pacquiao taking the win on the rematch that vindicated him.
