Manny Pacquiao will finally get his rematch against Timothy Bradley on April 12, according to 3MoreRounds.

Back in June of 2012, Pacquiao was upset by Bradley in defense of his welterweight title in a fight that most observers felt was dominated by the Pac-Man. However, the judges somehow saw it differently and awarded the fight to Bradley (31-0, 12 KOs). That loss would start an embarrassing year for Pacquiao, as he would later get knocked out cold by longtime rival Juan Manuel Marquez later that year.

Now Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KO), who is coming off a decision win over Brandon Rios, will get a chance to re-write history and avenge his most controversial loss, when the two meet in Las Vegas on HBO PPV.

Bradley for his part has successfully defended that very title against Ruslan Provodnikov in the 2013 Fight of the Year, as well as against Juan Manuel Marquez himself.

Top Rank, who promotes both fighters, will launch a U.S. press tour in Los Angeles on Feb. 4, before heading to New York City on Feb. 6. Tickets will go on sale on Feb. 4.
