LOS ANGELES (AP) — Timothy Bradley never imagined he would have to avenge a victory.

When the welterweight champion defeated Manny Pacquiao two years ago on two injured feet, he thought for an instant that he had reached the pinnacle of boxing. He hadn’t even left the MGM Grand Garden ring before learning that practically nobody agreed with the two judges who gave him that split decision.

After death threats, depression and a remarkable personal transformation, Bradley returns to that ring Saturday night in Las Vegas for a rematch with the Filipino congressman. Bradley intends to let out two years of humiliation and frustration with a decisive win over Pacquiao, finally earning the credit that was two years deferred.
