HBO Sports Sets Pacquiao-Bradley Rematch

HBO Sports has set an April 12 Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley pay-per-view boxing event, the company announced Saturday.

The fight, in which Pacquaio will seek to avenge his June 2012 controversial decision loss to current welterweight champion Bradley, will be the first PPV boxing match for HBO in 2014. Showtime last week announced it will distribute a March 8 Canelo Alvarez-Alfredo Angulo fight card.

Pacquiao last fought on PPV this past November, defeating Brandon Rios in an easy 12-round decision. The China-based event, which was Pacquiao only fight in 2013, drew approximately 475,000 PPV buys, according to HBO.
