BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley intend to leave no doubt this time.
Nearly two years after Bradley beat Pacman in a hotly disputed unanimous decision, the welterweights both seem uncommonly confident as they begin work for their April 12 rematch.
Bradley (31-0, 12 KOs) mentioned redemption as his goal several times Tuesday before the fight's kickoff news conference. He feels wronged by the public's reaction against his decision victory over Pacquiao in 2012. He believes he'll earn an even easier victory this time.
Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KOs) and trainer Freddie Roach are both confident Pacquiao beat Bradley in their first fight. The Filipino congressman wants to prove his career is still going strong by avenging the loss that snapped his 15-fight winning streak.
