Pacquaio is coming off a vintage performance in July where he stopped Argentine slugger and world champion Lucas Matthysse inside seven rounds. Now, Pacquiao returns to the U.S. in his remarkable fourth reign as welterweight world champion. Broner, one of the most talented fighters in boxing, is aiming for his second stint as 147-pound champion. If victorious, Broner also will add a career-defining win against a future Hall of Famer to his already stellar resume.

Pac needs to hire Lydell Rhodes again. He can simulate Broner . Saw Lydell fight at the Treasure Island the day before the Pac-Bradley 2 fight. Talked to his brother . Lydell went to the Philippines to spar with Pac.

[QUOTE=revelated;19356350]Which isn't smart. Broner's age isn't at issue. His tendency to try to fight like Floyd is. That's what he needs answers for.[/QUOTE] i think its a very good idea. train against younger guys to deal with their speed, etc.…

Roach used to give great advice between rounds....lately he stopped giving tips but rather become a cheerleader.
