When the Miami Heat won the Game 6 match-up against the Boston Celtics Thursday night, it set up a program conflict with the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley boxing match-up Saturday night. The Game 7 match-up is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. ET, while the Pacquiao-Bradley match-up was scheduled 30 minutes later at 8:30 p.m. ET.

According to boxing promoter Bob Arum, the two boxers -- Pacquiao and Bradley -- won't trade blows with each other until after the NBA Eastern Conference Game 7 match-up is over with. Fans can expect to wait until closed to 12:00 a.m. ET -- Sunday morning -- to watch the two boxers clash with each other.

The New York Post is reporting that the reason for this is so that fans wouldn't have to choose one event over the other.
