Weigh-In Results: Bradley 145-Lb, Pacquiao 145-Lb.

By Jake Donovan

Timothy Bradley and Manny Pacquiao both easily made weight for their highly anticipated rematch Saturday evening at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Bradley is playing out his role as the underdog and as the perceived villain in the promotion. The reigning welterweight titlist was met with a chorus of boos, but egged on the crowd, as calm as can be sporting a baseball hat, sunglasses and BEATS headphones. 

Pacquiao was his usual calm self, all smiles and waiting to take the scales. The always chiseled superstar weighed in at 145 lb. for his first fight as a title challenger since his vacant 154 lb. title fight with Antonio Margarito in Nov. '10.

Despite his name appearing second throughout the promotion, Bradley was granted championship treatment in taking the scales second. Heading into his second title defense, Bradley also weighed in at a ripped 145 lb. 

The two fighters were respectful during the staredown, though playfully exchanging words before being encouraged by their respecitve entourages to back down.

THE BACK DROP

The fight comes 22 months following their first encounter, which Bradley claimed victory in a highly controversial split decision win. Most observers had Pacquiao by anywhere from two to 10 points, with very few people believing Bradley (31-0, 12KO) did enough to remain unbeaten and claim the welterweight title. 

Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38KO) suffered a knockout loss in his next fight, getting drilled by Juan Manuel Marquez in the 6th round of their epic fourth encounter in Dec. '12. The setback marked the only time in his career in which the wildly popular Filipino suffered back-to-back losses. He has since rebounded with a 12-round win over Brandon Rios last November.

Bradley makes the third defense of the welterweight belt he claimed from Pacquiao in June '12. The unbeaten Californian posted a narrow win over Ruslan Provodnikov - a bout many, including Boxingscene.com, hailed as 2013 Fight of the Year - and a close but clear victory over Marquez last October.

Bradley's done. He's going to retire after this.

I smell a fix. Arum wasn't clapping or showing any emotion when Pac was called during weigh in but was all hand claps like he wanted to turn the lights on and off when Timmy's name was announced.
