Can Shawn Porter (30-2-1, 17 KOs) really hang with the top welterweights? He has fought top and mid-level welterweights within the division but the results have not been very convincing. Last nights display against Yordenis Ugas (23-4, 11 KOs) was far from convincing and many had him losing the fight including the Fox TV broadcasters.
After nearly five years out of the ring, Marcos ‘El Chino’ Maidana (35-5, 31 KOs) is set to return to boxing.
Currently the WBA “regular” champion, and recently signed to Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions, Manny Pacquiao has no shortage of fights on the table.
On Saturday, January 26, 2019 Keith Thurman (28-0, 22 KOs) will face Josesito “The Riverside Rocky” Lopez (36-7, 19 KOs). Anything can happen in boxing. Although Keith Thurman is the heavy favorite we can’t say he’ll win.
On Saturday, we saw Manny Pacquaio (61-7-2, 39 KOs) take on Adrien Broner (33-4-1, 24 KOs) which was a huge event not only for boxing but for sports worldwide. We had a legend and all time great Manny Pacquaio who isn’t half of what he used to be but still respected because of his speed, power and experience. With him being 40 years of age and having fought multiple wars in his career, a lot of fans expected a good fight between him facing and the younger Adrien Broner, a former four-time world champion in four different weight classes.
Current WBA (Regular) Welterweight Champion Manny “Pac-Man” Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KOs) is set to take on Adrien “The Problem” Broner (33-3, 24 KOs) on Saturday, January 19th, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Manny Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39KOs) vs Adrien Broner (33-3-1, 24KOs) takes place on January 19 on Showtime PPV. This fight is going to be interesting to watch because it’ll let the public know what’s left in both fighters. Pacquiao is 40 years old and is in the twilight of an illustrious career. His opponent Adrien Broner is a former four division world champion and eleven years younger but his career has been tainted by lack of focus and discipline.
