The stacked undercard features popular former world champion Amanda Serrano (26-1-1, 19 KOs) fighting in her hometown against Ghana’s Helen Joseph (12-3-1, 7 KOs) in a 10-round bout for the WBO Featherweight World Championship while unbeaten Notre Dame alum Mike Lee (15-0, 9 KOs) enters the ring in an eight-round cruiserweight fight against an opponent to be announced and unbeaten Polish heavyweight Adam Kownacki (12-0, 10 KOs) faces Danny Kelly (9-1-1, 8 KOs) in an eight-round bout.
For boxing fans not already tired of seeing Manny Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38 KOs) fight WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley (33-1-1, 13 KOs), they’ll get a chance to see the two of them face each other again on April 9th on HBO pay-per-view from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Their promoter Bob Arum, 84, is saying that Pacquiao has made his decision and will be fighting the 32-year-old Bradley next in what will be a third fight between them.
While some fans are obviously disappointed in this selection due it being an already played out fight, it’s a fight that some fans are interested in seeing because they feel that Bradley has improved since his last fight against Pacquiao in 2014.
