Close sources are giving us feedback that Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley is the candidate for April IF they can get Bradley to budge on the $8 Million Dollars he is asking for. Bradley feels that he deserves more since he beat Pacquiao in the first match. Bradley had received $5 Million but is looking for more now. My thing is this, if Pacquiao is willing to fight Floyd Mayweather for FREE and donate to Charity, then why not give part of your paycheck, $3 Million to be exact - and give it to Bradley to make the fight since you want to avenge your loss?
Next is Brandon Rios vs Ruslan Provodnikov in May. Close sources said money is not the object with these two. They just want to fight to prove who is the best at 140lbs. There is a possibility that it will be at a catchweight of 143lbs. We will see how that plays out. Both of these fights will be exciting for HBO and could do decent numbers. One thing is for sure, HBO has the money. They didn't have to pay Floyd Mayweather last year. They had to do something with the money. Save it in the Bank !!!!
