NEW YORK — Former world welterweight champion Adrien Broner feels “like a bum fighting for a sandwich,” as the boxing star Manny Pacquiao’s next opponent in Las Vegas.
The two star boxers are in New York to promote their upcoming fight on January 19 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Broner says, a win against Pacquiao means he turns into a legend overnight.
Broner — who has under his belt 33 wins; 3 losses with 24 knockouts — is looking to beat the southpaw senator who is 60-7, with 39 KOs.
Pacquiao is turning 40, while his opponent is only 29 years old.
But the Filipino champ says, enough of the trash talk, he is all about the action that he promises come January.
Pacquiao says he has 3 to 4 more fighting years.
“I still feel good, I have healthy body, thanks God for giving me this strength, my speed is still there.”
In fact, Pacquiao says, he can still continue to juggle between his two jobs in the Philippine Senate and in the boxing ring.
“Why would I choose from public servant and my career, pwede ko naman sila pagsabayin, pero hindi n amaapektuhan yung na pwedeng hind maapektuhan yung pagiging public servant ko pagiging boksingero.”
Jinky Pacquiao also has only one wish for her husband the Pacman.
Pacquiao and Broner are leaving New York to continue fight promotion on Tuesday.
Tickets to the fight will be on sale starting November 24.
