LOS ANGELES — Manny Pacquiao started 2019 the same way he ended 2018 — focused on his January 19th fight against Adrien Broner.
Pacquiao closed 2018 in prayer, preaching at a friend’s house for a New Year’s Eve party.
It was a calm moment, as the fighting Senator enters the next phase of training camp for his January 19th showdown against Adrien Broner.
He went a full twelve rounds with sparring partners on New Year’s Day.
Over the weekend, with his new kev-lar mouthguard, the Pacman gave one of his sparring partners a bloody nose.
And while the 8-division champion is looking more and more ready to defend his world title reign, he welcomed the newest Filipino member of the 4-division world title club.
Donnie Nietes captured the WBO junior bantamweight title in Macau on New Year’s Eve in a split decision victory over japans Kazuto Ioka.
Only the Pacman and Nonito Donaire have won world championships in at least 4 division.
The Pacman looks to celebrate even more Pinoy Pride, in the coming days, especially on the basketball court.
He announced over the holidays that he will be joining next week’s Filipino Heritage Night hosted by the Los Angeles Clippers.
Fight week is now less than three weeks away. As the training camp intensity picks up, so will the pre-fight hype as show time premier the first episode of all access Pacquiao vs Broner on Friday.
