Manny Pacquiao is set for a mouth-watering re-match with Timothy Bradley on April 12 in Las Vegas.

Bob Arum's Top Rank promotions confirmed the bout on Saturday, which will be eagerly-awaited as the pair's first clash in June 2012 ended with a controversial split decision win for Bradley.

Pacquiao's seven-year, 15-bout winning streak came to an end but many thought the fight should have gone to the Philippine ring legend.

The 35-year-old, who boasts a record of 55-5-2 with 38 knockouts, can now settle the score at the MGM Grand - the scene of the first bout.

The unbeaten Bradley (31-0, 12 knockouts) will be defending his World Boxing Organization welterweight belt in the fight.

In his most recent fight, Pacquiao recorded a convincing win over American Brandon Rios in Macau in November, while 29-year-old Bradley claimed a split-decision victory over three-division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez.
