MANNY PACQUIAO went head-to-head again with Adrien Broner in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The two will fight for a WBA regular title on January 19 at the MGM Grand Las Vegas.

Pacquiao maintains that this contest will be on the road to a rematch with Floyd Mayweather, even though the latter is currently retired.

“I have to pass through him [Broner] before fighting Floyd Mayweather. I want to prove to the boxing fans that Manny Pacquiao is still in the pack. You will see more fights with Manny Pacquiao here in the United States,” he said. “It would be good for me to have that fight [against Mayweather but] I need to pass through him. This is not an easy fight.
