LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles,  San Francisco Bureau) – Filipino champion boxer Manny Pacquiao promised that he will allow Timothy Bradley to knock him out on April 9 if the American two-time former WBO welterwieght title holder campaigns for him on television.

Pacquiao is running for a seat in the Philippine Senate in the May 9 elections, but strict rules from the elections body (Commission on Elections, or COMELEC) prohibit candidates from using television airtime to campaign if it creates an undue disadvantage to other candidates.

So Pacquiao made a deal with Bradley, and Bradley agreed.

During their televised pre-fight news conference on Wednesday, Bradley publicly voiced his support for Pacquiao’s senatorial bid. “He is truly, truly, to me, the only one out there that’s gonna do right for the Filipino people,” he told reporters.

So, if you planning to watch Saturday night’s Pacquiao-Bradley fight in Las Vegas, we’re sorry to be a spoiler: Bradley will win by a knockout in the 7th round.

A deal is a deal.
