Timothy Bradley became the fourth boxer to defeat legendary fighter Manny Pacquiao when the two men stepped into the ring in September of 2012 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Pacquiao lost in a split decision in one of the most controversial endings to a major fight in recent memory, but he will have an opportunity for revenge later this year when him and Bradley fight for the second time on April 12, 2014, per ESPN’s Dan Rafael.
