MANILA -- Filipino boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao is back home from the US where he promoted his upcoming rematch with welterweight champion Timothy Bradley.

The two fighters promoted their fight in Los Angeles and New York.

The "Pacman" is set to begin training for the bout, where he will try to reclaim his WBO welterweight belt.

Pacquiao described his opponent as a respectful person. “Respetado din naman siyang tao. Marunong ring gumalang ng kapwa nya,” he said.

Bradley scored a controversial victory against Pacquiao two years ago.

Their rematch will take place on April 12 in Las Vegas, which means he has 10 weeks to prepare for the bout.

He will kick off his training in Manila before flying back to the States to spend most of his preparations at Freddie Roach's Wild Card Gym. – ANC Now, February 9, 2014
