WBO junior welterweight titleholder Tim Bradley will be the focus in Saturday night’s 10-minute episode of HBO’s Portrait of a Fighter: Timothy Bradley, in advance of his pay per view-televised challenge for the WBO welterweight belt owned by Manny Pacquiao on June 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Bradley (28-0, 12 knockouts) is facing a southpaw for his third, straight fight in Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KOs), who has a 15-bout winning streak that includes eight knockouts.
Bradley is coming off an eighth-round knockout of left-handed, faded former lightweight champ Joel Casamayor on the undercard of Pacquiao’s disputed majority decision over Juan Manuel Marquez in November.
Prior to Casamayor, Bradley, who is 28, vanquished southpaw Devon Alexander by decison for the WBC’s junior welterweight belt in January of last year.
Saturday night’s episode featuring Bradley will air at 12:45 a.m. ET/PT, immediately after HBO’s debut of Faceoff with Max Kellerman: Pacquiao-Bradley. The feature will also be available on HBO On Demand and HBO Go.
