Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KOs) will take on Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12 KOs) on Saturday night in a 12-round 147-pound in Las Vegas. At stake is Pacquiao’s WBO welterweight championship. Also at stake could be a bout with Floyd Mayweather in late 2012 or 2013 depending on who wins the fight. If Bradley wins, it triggers a rematch clause. There’s no such clause if Pacquiao wins, so a bout between the Filipino and Mayweather could still happen in November.
