Filipino Congressman, singer and, oh, boxer, too, Manny Pacquiao and his opponent Tim Bradley arrived at MGM Grand Garden Arena this afternoon, and Las Vegas Sun photographer Steve Marcus and contributing photographer Tom Donoghue were onsite for coverage of the mayhem. Thanks also to Richard Corey for his video of the arrivals posted on YouTube.
Pacquiao defends his WBO welterweight title against Bradley, who is undefeated, at the arena Saturday night. Both fighters waved to fans, signed autographs and posed for photographs. Donoghue reports that there were hundreds of fans for Pacquiao, easily outnumbering the corner for Bradley.
