We are set for the very first huge boxing showdown of 2019. Saturday night on Showtime pay-per-view (9 p.m. ET), the mythical Manny Pacquiao will make his return to resist in the USA for the first time in over two decades since he places his WBA welterweight championship at stake against challenger Adrien Broner.
The eight-division world winner always sets out to demonstrate that he’s much gas left in the tank, and operating with a different name has made that point clear. The contentious Broner (33-3-1, 24 KOs) will soon be putting out to make his first victory as January 2017 when he could somehow mad Pacquiao. After a unanimous decision loss to Mikey Garcia at July 2017, Broner battled Jessie Vargas into a vast majority draw past April.
Along with this Pacquiao-Broner showdown for the welterweight title on Saturday, the vacant WBA interim light heavyweight title will probably be up for grabs since Badou Jack takes on Marcus Browne.
Below you may look at the battle card collection for Saturday’s offering on Showtime PPV, with chances supplied via Bovada.
Senator Manny”Pacman” Pacquiao, boxing sole eight-division world champion, will finish his two-year hiatus out of a U.S. boxing ring once he first returns to Las Vegas to defend his World Boxing Association welterweight world title against former four-division world winner and must-see attraction Adrien”The Problem” Broner. Pacquiao vs. Broner and its own co-main event conflicts will be generated and dispersed live by SHOWTIME PPV and introduced by Premier Boxing Champions starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
Pacquaio is coming from a classic operation in July where he ceased Argentine slugger and world winner Lucas Matthysse within seven rounds. Now, Pacquiao returns into the U.S. within his impressive fourth reign as welterweight world champion. Broner, among the most talented fighters in boxing, is aiming for his second stint as 147-pound winner. If victorious, Broner also will incorporate a career-defining win against a future Hall of Famer to his stellar resume.
