A Manny Pacquiao fight is always a big event - especially as he enters the twilight of his boxing career, and he goes in to tonight's fight as favorite to beat his opponent in Las Vegas. Adrien Broner thinks differently as he has the WBA regular welterweight title in his sights and a place in the history books as a rare vanquisher of the Filipino legend. It's fight night, and watching a live stream of the Pacquiao vs Broner action is easy, too - you can even watch for FREE in certain regions.
Pacquiao vs Broner: when and where?
Manny Pacquiao vs Adrien Broner will be a stunning clash and it's all set to start (depending on the undercard) tonight (Saturday January 19) at 9pm ET, 12am PT - so that's Sunday at 5am GMT or 4pm AEDT.
The venue for the fight is the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Pacquiao might be older but he has lots of experience with this being his 70th fight. That gives him a 60-7-2 record with a total of 39 KOs and status as one of the all time legends to setp into the ring. In comparison, his American challenger, at 29 years old, sports a formidable record sheet of 33-3-1-1 and 24 KOs.
As the former WBA welterweight champion and four division world champion, Broner is not to be underestimated. That said, Pacquiao is an eight division world champ as well as being former lineal and three time WBO welterweight champ – and of course there's he currently has the WBA title, too.
There's talk of Pac-Man agreeing to a Floyd Mayweather rematch, drawing the fighter out of retirement, as a follow-up to this fight. But Broner thinks all the attention should be on him and his chances to cause an upset: "I’m not in awe of any fighter, especially Manny Pacquiao. I hope he’s in awe of me. I’m a one of a kind fighter too. I’ve made history in this sport. This is a defining moment in my career and it’s going to be one of the biggest nights of my life."
