NEW YORK — “I just want to prove I’m still in boxing. Manny Pacquiao is still in boxing, and my career and my journey in boxing continues.”
He’s not done yet, and there are no signs that future boxing hall of famer Manny Pacquiao is slowing down as he turns 40 in December.
And after 2 years of hiatus, the Filipino boxing star is bringing his next fight back to U.S. soil – at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas come January 19.
Pacquiao says he is in top condition to defend his secondary WBA welterweight title against a decade younger, trash-talking boxer from Cincinnati, Ohio: Adrien Broner.
His next fight could be a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr. if Pacquiao wins and if the price is right.
But for Broner, a victory is more than winning $100 million dollar lottery – it’s a bragging right to be called the legend who brought down the legend that is Pacquiao.
