A lot has happened since Timothy Bradley Jr.'s controversial win over Manny Pacquiao in 2012, making this a rematch of contrasts. Bradley, now recognized among the best in the world, altered his style in 2013 victories over Ruslan Provodnikov and Juan Manuel Marquez. Pacquiao, meanwhile, appears to have started the natural decline that has preceded the end of many great careers. After the loss to Bradley, he was knocked out cold by Marquez before bouncing back in 2013 to defeat Brandon Rios. Saturday's rematch has become a must-win scenario for Pacquiao. So what will he need to do in order to avoid a loss? Read these "12 Rounds" to find out.
