Manny Pacquiao strength and conditioning coach Justin Fortune believes that Adrien Broner is in over his head when he steps in the ring with his man on January 19th in Las Vegas.
Speaking to Powercast Sports, Justin Fortune said:
“Broner is different. He is a counter puncher. I see Manny stopping him. I see Manny winning for sure because I don’t see Broner handling Pacquiao’s speed and power. You also have to remember when these guys say they can beat Manny they don’t really realise how hard he hits and how fast he punches. So when you put those together, the speed and the power, look at his last 10 opponents. Look at their faces after the fights. They look like they have been through a bloody war, battered! It’s different.”
“Broner’s not (Lucas) Matthysse, he’s not Floyd (Mayweather). He’s not any of those guys. I think he dogs it (out) but Manny overwhelms him.”
Pacquiao last fought against Lucas Matthysse earlier this year in Malaysia in what was his first recorded stoppage win in over nine years at the time.
Pacquiao vs Broner will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas live on Showtime pay per view.
