Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner will fight this weekend at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in a fight that means a lot for both of them — but perhaps for slightly different reasons.
For Pacquiao, it’s a chance to set up a possible rematch with Floyd Mayweather in the summer in a bid for redemption from their first match in 2015 when he was defeated by the American.
For Broner, it’s his first big pay per view opportunity and all the trouble he’s had outside of the ring in recent years can be erased with one big performance this weekend in Sin City.
Ahead of the fight the folks at Showtime have put together a really insightful ‘All Access’ delving deep into both men’s pasts, lives and mindsets:

Both guys came from nothing and now stand at the top of world boxing but clearly never forget about the tough times that got them to where they are today.
Time will tell which guys wants it more come Saturday night.
The bout will be shown live on Showtime pay per view in the US and on ITV 4 in the UK.
