Boxer Manny Pacquiao will fight Timothy Bradley Jr. at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas tomorrow night, in what will likely be the last fight of Pacquiao's storied career.
We last left Pacquiao in May 2015, when he lost to Floyd Mayweather in a bout that was incorrectly billed as "The Fight of the Century.
" Not wanting to go out on bottom, Pacquiao lined up a fight with Bradley Jr., whom he's faced twice before. Although the two technically split their previous encounters, many believe Pacquiao clearly won both fights, with controversial scoring
cited as the reason for Bradley Jr.'s victory in their first meeting. Pacquiao is a slight favorite
in the rubber match, though he's been battling a shoulder injury, is five years older than Bradley Jr., and hasn't fought in nearly a year. It'd be a sad ending to a great career if Pacquiao loses to Bradley Jr., although Manny's $20 million guaranteed payout
for the fight would certainly cushion his fall.
We have a feeling the LGBT community might
be pulling for Bradley Jr. over Pacquiao this weekend. This is Pacquiao's first fight since he created a shit storm by calling gay people "worse than animals.
" Just the kind of political correctness we've come to expect from the Filipino boxer, congressman
, and senate candidate
