I am posting on this page live round-by-round updates and result of the 'Pacquiao vs Bradley 2: Vindication' fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley Jr. based on the available live stream video online.
The fight is happening now, April 12, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas (April 13 MLA time). Other than the main fight of the evening (Pacquiao vs Bradley), HBO Pay-Per-View (PPV) is also live streaming 3 undercard fights (Felix vs Vasquez, Allakhverdiev vs Vargas and Usmanee vs Beltran).
Just a recap, in June 2012, Manny Pacquiao lost his fight vs Timothy Bradley via a controversial split decision. It marked Pacman's 1st loss in 7 years.
Live updates start here...

She already sang for him during his fight against Brandon Rios last November, not only the Philippine national anthem, but also the US anthem 'Star Spangled Banner'. American pop / r&b singer Ashanti meanwhile was the one who sing Star Spangled Banner for this fight. (credit to @JessicaESanchez)
So far, based on the live streaming video, the main event has started.
Round 1: Both fighters started so agressive, but Bradley was more of the agressor in this very tight round. RD 1 for Bradley. 10-0
Round 2: Another tight round. Manny opened and ended this round so great. This goes to Manny. Fight now even for me, 19-19.
Round 3: goes to Pacquiao again. So many attacks from both sides here. 29-28.
Round 4: It was an obvious round for Bradley. Our dear Pacman got hit with 2 big punches by Bradley. 38-38.
Round 5: Bradley owned this round once again. And he's leading for me so far. 48-47.
Round 6: Pacquiao recovers. 58-58.
Round 7: Manny trapped Bradley in the corner. Bradley was so arrogant. I'm giving this to Manny. 68-67.
Round 8: Pacquiao throwing lots of combos. Bradley tryin' not to look tired. Manny's round. 78-76.
Round 9: I think at this point, it becomes clear that the Filipino fighter is dominating the bout and should be the winner. 88-85.
Round 10: Pacquiao continues to control, out-powering Bradley. 98-94.
Round 11: Pretty boring round. I'm giving it to Manny. 108-103.
Round 12: Pacquiao finished it great. 118-112 in my scorecard.
And the judges' official scorecards says it's 118-110, 116-112, 116-112 all for Manny Pacquiao!!!!
