Manny Pacquiao’s retirement fight will complete a trilogy, as the boxer has agreed to face Timothy Bradley, Jr. in April.

Billed as the final fight in the career of Pacquiao, the two will meet April 9 from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. It is scheduled to be the main event of an HBO pay-per-view.

The 37-year-old Pacquiao (57-6-2) finally faced off against Floyd Mayweather, Jr. last May, dropping a decision. In 2014, Pacquiao earned a decision over Bradley for the WBO welterweight title and suffered a 2012 split decision defeat to the fighter.

Bradley (33-1-1) is 2-0-1 over his last three since the Pacquiao loss. He will be defending his WBO welterweight title.

The fight was first confirmed by ESPN.
