Episode three of ’24/7: Pacquiao-Bradley II’ airs Thursday


The third and final episode of HBO's 24/7: Pacquiao-Bradley II airs Thursday at 8:30 p.m., ET/PT in advance of Saturday's rematch between WBO welterweight beltholder Tim Bradley and Manny Pacquiao.

In his past three fights, Bradley dethroned Pacquiao by split decision in June 2012, rose from a 12th-round knockdown to unanimously decision Ruslan Provodnikov in March 2013 and then won a split decision over four-division titlewinner Juan Manuel Marquez last October.

Pacquiao lost his next bout after Bradley in December 2012 by sixth-round stoppage to Marquez, against whom Pacquiao is 2-1-1, before winning a unanimous decision over Brandon Rios in his most recent fight in November.

The WBO has declared that the winner of Bradley-Pacquiao II must face that between Marquez and Mike Alvarado, who will fight on May 17.
