Tortoise Rock Casino presents ultimate viewing party for Pacquiao vs. Bradley rematch

29 April 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Tortoise Rock Casino is proud to present the ultimate viewing party for HBO Championship Boxing, featuring the rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley in a 12-round Welterweight Championship Fight. HBO Championship Boxing will be shown live in the Shelly’s Lounge with no cover charge on Saturday, April 9 at 6 p.m.

This is the third meeting between these two fighters, with Bradley winning in 2012 and Pacquiao earning a unanimous decision victory in 2014. Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao lost his last fight to Floyd Mayweather in what was the most lucrative fight in boxing history. The “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000s hasn’t scored a knockout in more than six years, but still remains one of the most popular and successful boxers of all time. He is the first and only eight-division world champion, with 10 world titles, and was the second-highest-paid athlete in the world in 2015, according to Forbes.

The Coachella Valley’s own Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley enters the rematch having won three straight bouts. He is a two-time former World Boxing Organization (WBO) Welterweight Champion, two-time former World Boxing Council (WBC) Light Welterweight Champion and a former WBO Light Welterweight champion. During his career, Bradley has defeated 12 world champions.

The fights will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. All of the action will be shown live on Saturday, April 9 at 6 p.m. in Shelly’s Lounge. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Tortoise Rock Casino can be found by taking a right on Adobe Road at Highway 62 going east.
