Pacquiao Prepares For Broner's 'Running,' Aims To Seek & Destroy

Eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao is in full training for his upcoming defense of the WBA "regular" welterweight title against four division champion Adrien Broner.

The Showtime Pay-Per-View contest takes place n January 19th, from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The contest will be Pacquiao first bout in the United States since 2016.

Pacquiao was in action back in July, in one of his best performances in years when he dominated and stopped Lucas Matthysse in seven rounds in Malaysia. It was Pacquiao's first stoppage win since November of 2009.

Pacquiao is being prepared by his head trainer Buboy Fernandez in Manila. Strength and conditioning coach Justin Fortune is helping as well, and former trainer Freddie Roach is back on board as a consultant.

Buboy has been studying tapes of Broner.

"Broner looks mobile, fast and wants to run," Fernandez said to The Manila Times. "So that's one of our preparations. He chases all the length of the ring until we get him.

"And George (Kambosos Jr., Pacquiao's lead sparring mate) is very capable of preparing Manny for that, among others. It's not hard to prepare Manny even though the period of training is short. He has maintained the speed, strength and everything he gained in his last fight (against Matthysse). So, it's less difficult to adjust."

Fortune agrees. He sees no issues with Pacquiao being able to track Broner down in the ring.

“It’s still, all there, ready for the picking so to speak. All we have to do is a little adjustments here and there and Manny will be in fighting form again soon,” Fortune said.

“Yeah, Broner loves to run. It’s one of his bread and butter. Manny is faster and stronger. Matthysse is even stronger than Broner and Manny survived him. As of now, Manny can easily handle Broner and win by decision. But Manny will sure find him and once he hit him with a hard shot, everything will change.”
