Broner Warns Pacquiao: Look at My Resume - I Stop Southpaws!

Four division world champion Adrien Broner feels confident in his ability to score a knockout victory over Manny Pacquiao.

Broner will challenge Pacquiao for the WBA "regular" welterweight title in a Showtime Pay-Per-View main event on January 19th from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The contest will be Pacquiao's first bout in the United States in over two years.

Broner is widely speculated as the final opponent before Pacquiao faces Mayweather in a rematch.

There has been speculation about a rematch ever since Mayweather scored a unanimous decision over Pacquiao, who later said he was hampered by a right shoulder injury, in a 2015 bout that was dubbed “The Fight of the Century” but never lived up to its billing.

Mayweather, 41, retired in 2017 with a 50-0 record and said on Instagram in September that a rematch of the much-hyped 2015 fight would take place this year. The post included a video of Mayweather and Pacquiao talking to each other at a music festival in Tokyo.

Pacquiao (60-7-2) showed a return to form in July when he stunned defending champion Lucas Matthysse with a seventh-round knockout in Kuala Lumpur to claim the WBA welterweight title.

Broner (33-3-1), who was once considered by some to be the apparent to pound-for-pound king Mayweather, is far from intimidated by Pacquiao and is fully aware that the southpaw can go down.

“I am coming to win. Screw the money, I’m going to be victorious. They keep talking about a Pacquiao-Mayweather 2, but I’m going to mess those plans up. I just don’t see Manny Pacquiao beating me," Broner said.

“He’s still in great condition. He’s trained his ass off. I have to keep my composure and stay focused on my game plan. But I’m not going to tell you what that plan is.

“Hope isn’t my strategy – there will be no luck. I feel like he can’t beat me. Look at my resume – what do I do to southpaws? I stop them. Going into this fight, I’m very confident. I’m going to do what I always do to southpaws and dismantle him.”

[QUOTE=MisanthropicNY;19291518]Let's face it, Manny's only legit losses in the past 10 years are to Marquez (steroids) and Mayweather (one arm). Broner can never beat Manny unless Father Time or the Judges beat him first. There's nothing Broner can do with…

Not a good thing to bring up when a past it, and smaller, southpaw in Ponce De Leon gave him so many issues. I'm sensing "Manny" more issues this time around.
