Pacquiao: Broner Has Fast Hands, This is a Big Challenge

Eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao has not taking his upcoming fight lightly.

Pacquiao expects a tough task when he faces four division world champion Adrien Broner in the main event of a Showtime Pay-Per-View card.

The event takes place on January 19th, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The contest will be Pacquiao's first bout in the United States in over two years.

Pacquiao last fought on U.S. soil back in 2016, when he won a dominant decision over Jessie Vargas.

Ironically, Vargas and Broner fought to a close draw in 2018.

Despite their common opponent, Pacquiao believes Broner is going to present a tough challenge in the ring.

“I’m sure that Broner is focused on this fight. They are working hard and I expect him to be in great condition. We know how his trainer pushes him and has been pushing him in their training camp. I’m not taking this fight lightly. I don’t listen to any gossip about Adrien Broner, I just focus on my training. I want to be in 100 percent condition and ready for the fight on January 19," Pacquiao said.

“Adrien Broner is fast with his hands and he’s overall a good boxer. This is a big challenge that I’m excited for. Me, Freddie and Buboy know each other well and we have a great coaching staff right now. I’m happy with how everything has gone in training for this fight. Rest and recovery is definitely a key part of training. Sometimes when I work hard in the gym, my body can’t fully recover by the next day, so I’ve had to work more rest into the schedule. But as soon as I can, I’m back in the gym working hard.
“On January 19 I’m going to do my best. I can’t say a prediction, but I’m going to do the same thing I did for my last fight. My trainers know how hard I’ve worked in this camp for this win."
