Both Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley made weight for Saturday’s WBO welterweight title fight at the MGM Grand Garden as Pacquiao, the reigning champion, weighed in right at the 147-pound limit with Bradley coming in at 146 this afternoon.
Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 knockouts) remains a 4-1 betting favorite over Bradley, the current WBO junior welterweight champ, who is undefeated at 28-0 with one no contest and 12 KOs.
Top Rank, which promotes Pacquiao, announced earlier today the Pacquiao-Bradley fight will not begin until after Game 7 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat has concluded. The HBO Pay Per View telecast begins at 6 p.m. The Celtics-Heat game is scheduled to tip off at 5:30 p.m.
