HUGELY popular Filipino icon Manny Pacquiao will take on notorious American Adrien Broner at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on January 19 on Showtime pay-per-view.

It will be Pacquiao’s first contest in the United States in more than two years. “Please come and see the best Manny Pacquiao again. I just want to prove I’m still in boxing. Manny Pacquiao is still in boxing and my journey in boxing is still continuing. I just want to give a good show on January 19,” Pacquiao said. “Don’t miss this great and prestigious fight.

“We have to work hard and train hard for this fight so that the people will be happy and on January 19 we give a good fight for the fans.”

“I chose Adrien Broner because I believe we can have a good fight and we can entertain the fans,” he continued. “He’s a good boxer and we cannot underestimate him.”

Ultimately he still wants a rematch with old rival Floyd Mayweather. “Floyd, when we met in Japan we talked and he said he wanted to come out from retirement to fight me, to challenge me,” Manny said. “All I know is to fight in the ring and to give excitement and entertain people. That’s my job. If Floyd comes out of retirement after this fight we’ll see. But I cannot underestimate Adrien Broner.

“I want to the fight the greatest opponent, the greatest fighters in the world, one of them is Adrien Broner. I can fight anybody.”

Broner was adamant, “They keep on talking about rematches, they got to get past me.”

“The things he’s done in this game is unbelievable,” the American added. “I know come January 19 I’ve got to be on top of my s***… I’m here to f*** him up though.

“It’s going to be a hell of a fight, all bulls*** aside I’m not coming to just pick up a cheque.”

He concluded, “It means a lot to me honestly. A win, I turn into a legend overnight.”
