This Saturday night, Manny Pacquiao (52-3) will go to war against Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
For Pacquiao, it will be just another championship fight as the eight-division champion looks to cement his legacy as one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters the sport has ever seen and erase all doubts that he is still the top fighter in the sport.
For Timothy Bradley (27-0), the fight is a chance to not only earn a huge payday but to prove he is one of the best fighters in the sport. Bradley has gone unrecognized for much of his career despite the fact he sports an undefeated record and currently competes in arguably the most competitive and popular division in boxing.
Both men also realize the prize that lies ahead for the winner. A potential mega-fight with Floyd Mayweather later this year.
Many expect this will be a close and action-packed fight between two of the best fighters in the sport.
