Manny Pacquiao’s fame in the ring is perhaps only matched outside of it by his humility and good nature.
Trash talking has never been his thing, really.
Over the years when boxers have tried to get under his skin he usually just laughs and says something along the lines of ‘I will try my best’.
He never tends to predict a fight either.
His next bout takes place on January 19th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas against Adrien Broner, a brash, gifted product of an American ghetto who’s been outspoken as usual in his pre-fight promotion.
But as usual — Pacquiao has not bitten.
Personality-wise, the two boxers could perhaps not be any more different.
But that hasn’t stopped a friend of his in this rather hilarious TMZ YouTube (hat tip) clip attempting to fill in the blanks on how Senator Manny Pacquiao probably really feels, and what he would like to say if he wasn’t so polite:
Good manners and politeness aside ‘PacMan’ will be bringing his full repertoire of firepower to the ring next week in what is shaping up to be a very interesting early world title fight in 2019.
It could be a match up of Broner’s counter punching versus Pacquiao’s speed and punch output but time will tell.
The winner and indeed the loser of the fight (if he performs well) could be in line for a number of big fights this year either way with the welterweight division really coming back to life at the moment, and with new pound for pound talent at the top of it — with the likes of Errol Spence and Terence Crawford.
