Pacquiao, the sport’s only eight-division champion, and Bradley will start their coast-to-coast media tour on Tuesday at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
The boxers will be accompanied by revered promoter Bob Arum and trainers Freddie Roach (for Pacquiao) and Joel Diaz (for Bradley) in the formal announcement of their showdown.
