Manny Pacquiao Says He Will Fight Adrien Broner In January
First a signing with Al Haymon and now a fight against Adrien Broner on the horizon for Manny Pacquiao?
Boxingscene.com reports that Manny Pacquiao says his next trip to the ring will come against “the Problem” during the month of January.
The 39-year-old Filipino boxing icon said the fight with Broner could be held either on Jan. 12 or 19, likely in Las Vegas.
According to Spin.ph, Pacquiao made the announcement on Wednesday night when he was introduced as the latest ambassador of International Sports Promotion Society at Makati Shangrila Hotel.
“Broner, Adrien Broner,” said Pacquiao when asked by Spin on who he’s going to fight next. “I think either January 12 or 19.”
Pacquiao currently holds a version of the WBA welterweight after defeating Lucas Matthysse in July. Broner last saw action in April vs Jessie Vargas where they fought to a draw.
