MANILA, Philippines – On May 2, Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao will finally settle his beef with American Timothy Bradley.

Wait. What?

That’s probably what the Los Angeles Times thought of Sunday (Manila time) when its print version published the picture of Bradley with Pacquiao to announce the Filipino boxers mega fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the welterweight division.


Bradley is a fairly impressive boxer going 31-1-1 and one of those victories is over Pacquiao, albeit a very controversial split decision.

Desert Storm may be making his name but he is no “Money Man” who has an unblemished 47-0 record and he is also no Pacman who became a World Champion in an unprecedented eight weight classes.

The LA Times had the right picture—that of Mayweather and Pacquiao—in its online version of the upcoming megafight.
