Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley: Top Storylines as Showdown Looms
Kathy Willens

It's fight week!

Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley are under a week away from their hotly anticipated rematch, and we'll set you up right with all the info and storylines you'll need to know for the big night.

Bradley will defend his WBO Welterweight Championship against Pacquiao on Saturday night (9 p.m. ET, HBO pay-per-view), and both men have a lot to prove coming out of their highly controversial first fight.

Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KO) was once considered the best pound-for-pound fighter in boxing. But he suffered consecutive losses—controversially against Bradley and decisively against Juan Manuel Marquez—in 2012, before returning for an easy unanimous-decision win over Brandon Rios last November.

He's looking to settle the score.

Bradley (31-0, 12 KO) rebounded from his win over Pacquiao—which was widely discredited by fans and media—to win the 2013 Fight of the Year against Ruslan Provodnikov and then defeat Marquez later in the year. 

He's looking to prove his first win was no fluke.

So consider yourself armed. All you'll need to know about Pacquiao vs. Bradley 2 is contained within. Here we ask questions, make speculations and give you the top storylines for Saturday night's huge main event!
