Palau National Communications Corporation (PNCC) is pleased to announce another big boxing event, LIVE via Pay-per-View on PNCC Digital
TV Channel 65: PACQUIAO versus BRADLEY.
Promoted by Top Rank, Inc., the 12-Round WBO World Welterweight Championship Bout
will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on June 9, 2012
(Sunday, June 10 at 10:00 a.m. Palau time).
THE HONORABLE MANNY
PACQUIAO (54-3-2, 38 KOs) is boxing's biggest and brightest star.
An Eight-Division World Champion, Manny is not only recognized
by most observers as the best fighter at any weight in the ring today - the best
"Pound for Pound" - but is also considered one of the sport's all-time greats. In
2010, Manny was elected Congressman in the Sarangani province in the Philippines.
His "rags to riches" story is spectacular - a scrawny 14 year-old kid living on
the streets of Manila goes on to become one of the world's most recognizable and
Palm Springs, California native and WBO Junior Welterweight Champion (28-0, 12 KOs)
TIMOTHY “DESERT STORM” BRADLEY is coming off an eighth-round TKO win against former
WBA super featherweight and WBC lightweight world champion Joel Casamayor in his
last fight on November 12, 2011. With
consistently impressive performances and decisive wins in recent fights, most observers
now consider Timothy to be the top 140-pounder in the world.
