Arum: Pacquiao v Bradley a done deal

Promoter Bob Arum says Manny Pacquiao has agreed to a third fight with Timothy Bradley.

Speaking to the Manila Times, Arum said the fight against Bradley was all set for Las Vegas in 2016.

"It's a done deal and it's going to be a third fight against Timothy Bradley," said Arum.

"We took a lot of consideration knowing Bradley has improved a lot as a fighter since the last time they met in 2014.

"Bradley is happy about it of course and that's really a competitive fight for Manny."

Pacquiao had previously indicated that his next fight would be his last, but Arum now says he doesn't believe the 37-year-old will retire.

"It's not going to be Manny's last fight because anything could still happen and you know Manny," he said. "That's why we won't sell it that way. I don't think it is Manny's last fight."

Pacquiao and Bradley will meet sometime in March, April or May of next year.
