During any fight week in Las Vegas you are sure to run into your usual cast of characters. There are a lot of good people in the sport, both in the media and pugilistic field, and it’s good to catch up with everyone during these times.
Manny Pacquiao faces Tim Bradley on Saturday night, from the MGM Grand here in Las Vegas, and those in press row have been busy as usual. Our friend Naoki Fukuda has been kind enough to share some of his images through the early fight week days.
Check below for shots from Tuesday’s grand arrivals, Wednesday’s final presser, and Thursday’s undercard presser.
