HBO Sports to Replay Pacquiao vs. Bradley I & Bradley vs. Provodnikov on HBO2

Leading up to the highly anticipated world welterweight title rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley Jr. – set for Saturday, April 12 and presented live by HBO Pay-Per-View® – HBO Sports will present the exclusive replay of two compelling showdowns that highlight the remarkable skill and will of these competitors.

On Friday, March 28 at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) and Saturday, March 29 at 10:00 a.m. (ET/PT), HBO2 will replay Pacquiao vs. Bradley I 2012 and Bradley vs. Provodnikov 2013 back-to-back. On June 9, 2012 in the bright spotlight of Las Vegas, Timothy Bradley Jr. won a controversial split decision over Manny Pacquiao, igniting a hot debate in the boxing community that triggered public demand for a rematch.

Last March in Carson, CA, Bradley displayed a part of his skill package that hadn’t been seen before when he prevailed over hard-charging Ruslan Provodnikov in a 12-round slugfest that went on to earn 2013’s “Fight of the Year” honors from the Boxing Writers Association of America.

Both fights will also be available 24 hours a day to HBO On Demand® and HBO GO® subscribers beginning Monday, March 31 through Wednesday, April 30.

Pacquiao vs. Bradley 2 takes place Saturday, April 12 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/ 6:00 p.m. PT.
