We’re just two weeks out now from Pacquiao vs Broner on January 19th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
A fight that sees the world of boxing’s attention on it not only due to the two being big names but this being pretty much the only big fight of note in the whole of this month.
Both boxers know not only the WBA title is on the line but more importantly, a big opportunity for the winner and in Pacquiao’s case — a likely rematch with one Floyd Mayweather.
Speaking to Fight Hub TV Pacquiao’s strength and conditioning coach Justin Fortune has had a bold prediction for the bout:
“Broner is dangerous. He’s coming into this fight in shape so if he’s on his game I still think Manny by late round stoppage but if he’s not on his game — Manny by early stoppage. Broner is easy to not like that much but it’s good to see Manny wants the knockout because when he does that he’s pretty much unstoppable.”
“He’s (Pacquiao) just punches too fast and too powerful. He’s (Broner) a 140lbs pounder. His power doesn’t compare to Manny’s.”
The fight will be shown live on Showtime pay per view in the US and live on ITV 4 free view in the UK.
