Manny Pacquiao was on hand in New York City on Thursday (Feb. 6, 2014) to help promote his long-awaited rematch against Timothy Bradley for the WBO welterweight title, which takes place on April 12, 2014 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Watch a replay of their "Big Apple" press conference in the video above.
Pacquiao lost his title to "Desert Storm" in early 2012, then went to sleep against Juan Manuel Marquez in the sixth round of his follow-up fight (GIF). The former pound-for-pound king was able to rebound with a unanimous decision win over Brandon Rios, only to run into tax trouble in his native Philippines (details).
Bradley, meanwhile, has been aces.
The Californian followed up his win over Pacquiao by outpointing Ruslan Provodnikov, then took home a split decision win over the aforementioned Marquez. Despite his credentials, there's no question Bradley would like to silence the critics who insist he was gifted a decision.
