LAS VEGAS—After trying to hurt each other for 12 rounds, Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley hugged and made plans like buddies.

Drowned out by the cheers at MGM Grand Arena, Pacquiao and Bradley chatted in the ring shortly after the Filipino boxing champion sent the fighter from California tumbling down for the unanimous victory.

“What time?” Bradley asked Pacquiao, the only part of the conversation heard over the mic as the crowd stayed up on its feet to give Pacquiao a fitting farewell.

Later on, Pacquiao revealed he had invited to Bradley to join a Bible study session, which has been a regular affair at Pacquiao’s suite at Delano since he arrived in this neon-lit gambling haven.

“Bradley is a nice guy, he’s a good man. In fact, I invited him tomorrow to our Bible study. He said he will try,” Pacquiao, looking dapper in a light gray suit and white undershirt, said at the post-fight presser.

Bradley and Pacquiao have been cordial throughout the eight-week build up for their fight, far from the animosity-filled matches normal in the sport. Bradley even campaigned for Pacquiao for his Senate bid in the final press conference last Wednesday.

“This is good. This is boxing. We don’t need to hate each other outside of the ring. We should be friends. We entertain people. That’s our job,” Pacquiao added.
