One of America’s top boxing trainers who knows both Broner and Manny Pacquiao well has weighed in on what he believes the fight’s underdog needs to do to get the win.
Broner comes into the fight as the underdog despite being a much younger fighter but if he gets his motivation back in training camp, there’s no denying that he can make it one hell of a fight with Manny Pacquiao and cause an upset.
Trainer Joel Diaz told Fight Hype that:
“Adrien Broner is a great person. A great human being, actually he’s my friend. I can honestly recommend for Adrien Broner to be successful (against Pacquiao) — to stay away from all the drama outside the sport. Dedicate himself 100% to the sport and he can do some damage. I believe in Adrien Broner, a very talented kid. Very strong. But I think that a lot of his downfalls have been to do with outside the sport (lifestyle).”
“If he was a disciplined fighter to the sport of boxing he’d be one of the best because he has a lot of potential.”
The fight is set for January 19th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and will be shown live on Showtime pay per view in the US.
