Rarely will The Coachella Valley Art Scene ever talk about sports, but this week we can’t hold back the amount of pride and anticipation inside us that’s cheering on our local boxing hero, Timothy Bradley Jr.
By now, you’ve probably heard all about him and his highly anticipated fight this weekend, but if you haven’t here is a little rundown:
Timothy Bradley, Jr. is an undefeated professional boxer. A native to the Coachella Valley. Born in Cathedral City, California, and training out of Indio, California. He risked it all to go after his dreams and because so he is the current WBO Light Welterweight Champion and former two-time WBC Light Welterweight Champion.
This Saturday Bradley’s dreams and world-wide stardom will come to life under the lights and through the lens of HBO’s cameras: Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley will square off in the boxing ring at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight can be watched by tuning into Pacquiao vs Bradley HBO pay-per-view main event at 6:00pm Pacific Standard Time. Manny Pacquiao will be defending his WBO welterweight title against Timothy Bradley, who is looking to become a two-weight world titleholder, after multiple reigns at 140 pounds, and having never lost any of his belts in the ring.
The Coachella Valley Art Scene is so proud of the local all-star and will be here cheering him on the whole way!
