Someone who knows reigning WBO welterweight king Manny Pacquiao quite well will be calling the action in Brisbane, Australia this weekend for ESPN.
Former two-division world champion Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley will be returning to the commentary booth for sports broadcast giant ESPN to call the upcoming title clash between Pacquiao and Australia's Jeff "The Hornet" Horn on Sunday, July 2nd.
This won't be the first time for Bradley to call a Pacquiao fight, as he was also on commentary duties when the eight-division world champion dethroned Jessie Vargas in Las Vegas last year.
Bradley (33-2-1, 13 KO) has shared the ring with Pacquiao thrice, winning their first meeting in 2012, before coming up short in their next two matches in 2014 and 2016. He hasn't seen action since his third fight against Pacquiao in April of last year.
Manny Pacquiao and Jeff Horn will battle for the WBO welterweight world championship on Sunday, July 2nd at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.
