Filipino boxing superstar Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao arrived in Los Angeles on Monday, where he will take part in a media tour to promote his April 12 rematch against unbeaten American Timothy Bradley Jr.

The media tour starts on February 4 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles where the fight will be formally announced. The second stop will be in New York on February 6.

Pacquiao plans to return to the Philippines immediately after the media tour in order to start the first part of his training camp in General Santos City.

“Babalik din ako agad dito para start na ang training,” Pacquiao said.

He will then go back to Los Angeles in March to hold the second half of his camp at the Wild Card Gym.

Pacquiao is attempting to avenge his controversial June 2012 loss against Bradley and reclaim the WBO welterweight belt that he lost to the American.
