Manny is coming off a common decision loss to Floyd Mayweather on May 2 in the richest fight in boxing history, the largely anticipated super fight did not live up to the top expectations, and Manny Pacquiao later exposed he came into the bout with a wounded right shoulder. As it stands, his final win is a 2014 November lopsided plan win over the unhappily over matched Chris Algieri.Bradley recorded his primary stoppage win in four years by knocking out Brandon Rios in an HBO big event last month.The 32-year old American also beat Jessie Vegas by general decision in June, but not before suffering a big scare in the last round where the poorly rocked in the closing seconds.
