Roach: Pacquiao Will Kill Broner - You Can Bet The House On It!

Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach is predicting a complete wipeout when Manny Pacquiao defends the WBA "regular" welterweight title against Adrien Broner on January 19th.

The fight is scheduled to headline a Showtime Pay-Per-View event from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Earlier this year, Roach and Pacquiao had parted ways after 16 years of working together. But they recently came back together and reached an agreement to work together for this contest.

Roach is not underestimating Broner, but he believes Pacquiao is going to bust him up.

“Manny will kill Broner,” Roach told ABS-CBN. “You can bet your house on it. Broner tries to fight like (Floyd) Mayweather but he’s nowhere near the skill level. He even uses the shoulder-roll.”

“Broner’s the type who can make an opponent look bad so Manny can’t take him lightly."

While Roach is rejoining the corner, he won't be the calling the shots.

“That would be Buboy (Fernandez),” Roach said. “Buboy did a good job with Manny in getting him ready for (Lucas) Matthysse and the result was a knockout."

After Roach and Pacquiao parted ways, Pacquiao promoted Buboy to the position of head trainer.

“I hadn’t talked with Manny since the (Jeff) Horn fight (in July last year), then we met up two weeks ago when he went to LA for the second stop in the press tour to promote the Broner fight,” Roach said.

“We spoke for about 15 minutes. It’s up to Manny how he wants me to be involved with the team. I’m just happy to be back. He’ll be working out at the Wild Card Gym, which is like his home.
“I’ll be ready to do whatever Manny wants me to do. It’s not a long training period for Manny, like eight weeks in total. We’re rushing it but Manny will be fine. There’s time to prepare. It won’t be a problem.”

I admire Broner's ability to keep himself a force in boxing and the fact he keeps getting himself big fights he is a big name by his use of his mouth and social media. Lets be honest though he has…

That will be a very close decision or a draw, pac and broner lose to all welter champions, better milk them while you can, nobody else is gonna fight any of them for much money without koing each of them.

Broner is one of the top 10 welterweights and in his prime. This is a 50-50 fight.
