Boxings next big rematch is on its way, as it was officially announced that Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley will lock horns yet again inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 12.

Bradley won a highly-unpopular split-decision over Pacquiao in June of 2012 and there is definitely some unfinished business on the table.

Catching up with former HBO analyst Larry Merchant over the weekend, he insists the matchup is even on paper.

I think its the fight that had to be made and I think dont think Pacquiao needs to outbox Bradley, Merchant revealed. For me its a pick em fight.

Asked what it is about Bradley that resonates, Merchant pointed towards his successful 2013 campaign that saw him win a hellacious firefight against Ruslan Provodnikov before returning to edge Juan Manuel Marquez in competitive chess match.

His resilience, said Merchant. He came back and fought the kind of fight we didnt know he had in him against Provodnikov. And then he comes back and he beats Marquez. Those are important statements.

Many saw Pacquiao out boxing Bradley in their first match but Merchant feels that the Filipino star will have to take things even further in the second encounter.

I question whether Pacquiao can just outbox Bradley, Merchant said. I think hes going to have to outfight him. And we dont know if thats where Pacquiao wants to go.

Hear the judges: Pac wins only via KO and no basketball games on fight night.

People dissing Merchant for telling the truth. Pac tried boxing last time....did he win? Didn't think so. There will be a lot of pull for Tim to win from TR since Pac has decided to leave and Tim decided to stay. If Pac tries to box again, there is a good chance he loses like he did the first...
