WBO Prez Loves The Idea of Pacquiao-Bradley II

By Miguel Rivera

Upon hearing the news that a deal was close, World Boxing Organization president Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel was loving the idea of a rematch between Manny Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38KOs) and WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (31-0, 12KOs). The fight is being negotiated for April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Bradley's victory over Pacquiao was a controversial split decision in June 2012.

"It's one of the great battles that can happen this year," said Valcarcel to Carlos Narvaez. "The controversy of the first fight makes it very interesting, added to the fact that they are great fighters and Bradley is a great champion and Pacquiao needs no introduction. It's a fight that can not be missed. Among the three options that were being considered, this is the most interesting. They had a rematch clause in the contract for his first fight and both belong to the same promoter."

Translation:Bradley holds our organizations belt and we wanted the highest amount of sanctioning fees.

Pacquiao whooped him the first time, and he'll whoop him again. Styles make fights. PM me for a bet.
