LONDON (1 April) – Premier Sports will air what is likely to be boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao’s final fight live and exclusive in the UK when he steps in against Timothy Bradley next Saturday night.
The pair clash for the third time on April 9th when they will look to settle an old score with both fighters sharing a win apiece from their previous meetings in 2012 and 2014.
Taking place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Premier Sports will be the only the place for British fight fans to see the Filipino legend in action before he hangs up his gloves.
Premier Sports is available on a number of platforms including Sky, Virgin, TalkTalk and online for just £9.99 a month, with no-connection fee or minimum term.
The channel was launched in August 2010 and has screened a number of top sporting events from football, rugby league, motorsports, ice hockey, boxing and many others.
The live broadcast of Pacquiao’s megafight with American ace Bradley will see the eight-division world champion back in the ring for the first time since his blockbuster showdown with pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather last May.
Five-time world champion Bradley is coming off an impressive ninth-round stoppage over the tough and durable Brandon Rios, and will be looking to avenge his only defeat to date when he takes on Pacquiao.
Both men are in good spirits ahead of the bout and will be looking to make sure they put on a great show come fight night.
“I look forward to my battle with Timothy Bradley and giving boxing fans a fight they will always remember,” said Pacquiao. “This fight has a very special meaning to me and I will pour every ounce of my being — physically, emotionally and spiritually — into preparing for Bradley. “He has my full attention. I dedicate this fight to my fans and to my countrymen throughout the world who have kept me in their prayers. And as always, I fight to bring glory to the Philippines,” he said.
“I have always dedicated myself to who I am on fight night. However, on April 9th I will not only have dedicated myself to that but also delivering the performance that everyone has long awaited,” said Bradley.
