We're about 24 hours away from Manny Pacquiao's return to the squared circle when he takes on perhaps his toughest challenge in recent memory, undefeated up-and-comer Timothy Bradley, with Pac Man's WBO welterweight title on the line.
The high-prfile championship prize fight will headline the HBO pay-per-view (PPV) event tomorrow night (Sat., June 9, 2012) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Before we get to the good stuff, however, each one of the competitors set to collide in "Sin City" had to tip the scales tonight to make sure no one was carrying any extra baggage.
The main event fighters, Pacquiao and Bradley, came in on point with the former weighing 147 pounds, while the latter checked in one pound lighter at 146 pounds. The staredown between the two immediately after was heated, which you can check out right here, with both of them having to be separated.
Save it for the ring, boys.
The rest of the field also made their respective fights official, even Jorge Arce and Jesus Rojas, who both apparently agreed to come in 1.5 pounds more than the Super Bantamweight limit (122 pounds). All that remains is to sweat out the final hours before showtime.
In the meantime, feel free to enjoy this Pacquiao vs. Bradley weigh-in photo gallery after the jump. For complete Pacquiao vs. Bradley weigh-in results and comprehensive recap click here.
