Manny Pacquiao challenges Floyd Mayweather to... a game of one-on-one hoops

Manny Pacquiao challenges Floyd Mayweather to... a game of one-on-one hoops

Broner (33-3-1, 24 KOs), 29, of Cincinnati, said he grew watching the 40-year-old Filipino legend Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KOs) fight and always wanted to face him.

Pacquiao is reuniting with longtime trainer Freddie Roach for his clash with Broner at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, following a two-year rupture in what was once regarded as one of the more tightly knit fighter-trainer relationships in boxing.

Malignaggi is offering his mini-previews to of the next four months of successive 147-pound appearances by Pacquiao against Broner, Keith Thurman-Josesito Lopez (January 26), Shawn Porter-Yordenis Ugas (March 9), Errol Spence-Mikey Garcia (March 16), Terence Crawford-Amir Khan (April 20), and, Danny Garcia-Adrian Granados (April 20).

Pacquiao will end his two-year hiatus from a US boxing ring when he returns to Las Vegas to defend his World Boxing Association Welterweight World Title against Broner.

For Pacquiao it would be his chance to redeem himself for a 2015 unanimous decision loss to Mayweather, and for Broner it would be the chance to validate his skills against the MI born fighter, who has acted as a mentor to Broner.

Keith Thurman - Took a loss, took a victory, coming back, I think this is a great fight for Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner.

"No disrespect but I don't give a (expletive) about Mayweather and Pacquiao".

His fight on January 19 in Las Vegas is the only thing on Adrien Broner's mind.

Mayweather has teased the fans and Pacquiao with the possibility of rematch on Instagram but insisted after his first round KO of Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan on December 31st that he wasn't interested in boxing again.

"We've only discussed up until Monday right now", Roach told Sporting News. Broner dethroned DeMarco and earned a vacant WBA crown against Allakhverdiev, his fourth in as many divisions.

"But I'm not thinking about that now". Floyd beat Pac Man on points in a 2015 blockbuster, returning scores of 116-112, 118-110, 116-112, but the beaten fighter was hampered by a shoulder injury and that took a bit of the shine off the result. "I want that one more time".

"Well if God wants me to be, then why not?" he said, when asked if he would like the position.

"I'm just ready to go out there and prove the naysayers wrong", he said. Pacquiao is just too busy.

Fernandez had his baptism of fire as chief trainer a year ago when Pacquiao overpowered Lucas Matthysse of Argentina to win the WBA 147-lb title in Malaysia when Hall of Famer Freddie Roach didn't get a call-up. 'I may only have to throw one, and that motherf***** will go to sleep.
