Report: Pacquiao picks Bradley for last fight

MANILA, Philippines – Manny Pacquiao has reportedly chosen Timothy Bradley, whom he has tangled with twice, as the opponent for his final fight on April 9 next year.

David Anderson of The Mirror reported that Pacquiao bypassed Amir Khan and is going for a rubber match with Bradley, who defeated the Filipino icon in 2012 and lost to him in their rematch two years later.

The choices for Pacquiao’s next opponent have previously been narrowed down to Bradley, Khan and undefeated rising star Terence Crawford.

Khan, for his part, said he will move on and purse a fight with IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook.

“As it’s not me, then I’ll fight Brook. I know I can beat him and it should be at Wembley in late May,” Khan said in the same report.

Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum earlier said that the fighting congressman will name his opponent within the week. ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael, however, on Friday phoned Arum, who told him there’s no word yet.

Pacquiao will retire after next year’s fight to focus on politics.
