When the scorecards were read last June 9, announcing Timothy Bradley as the winner of his bout with WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, the reactions ran the gamut from surprise to outrage.
Sports personalities from boxing and many other sports immediately hit the social media universe to express their displeasure, with some declaring the judges incompetent and others even questioning whether the fight was rigged.
In the immediate aftermath, the calls for a rematch were muted by the public's displeasure over the outcome, and both Pacquiao and Bradley went their separate ways.
Pacquiao, who had a much harder time of the two, was stopped in the sixth round by his long-time rival Juan Manuel Marquez, while Bradley won a war over Ruslan Provodnikov in March to defend the belt he won from Pacquiao.
If a rematch between the two fighters wasn't compelling before, it certainly is now given what has transpired since.
And it's a fight that most boxing fans would likely embrace at this stage. And here are the five reasons why Bradley vs. Pacquiao II is suddenly a must-see fight.
