Fight Manny Pacquiao vs Adrien Broner: Date, Time, TV And Stream Info For Saturday’s Fight
Manny Pacquiao vs. Adrien Broner — preview, start time, how to watch, full card
The match will take plce on Saturday, January 19, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
And the choice of venue means it is going to be an early start – or a very late night – for UK viewers.
The fight is not expected to get underway until 5am on Sunday, January 20.
“I still have that killer instinct and the fire in my eyes is still there,” Pacquiao said.
“That aggressiveness, the interest in this career is still there 100 percent. The speed and the power are still there.”
That showed in a gym session this week in Hollywood, where Pacquiao looked sharp and fast while hitting the mitts with trainer Freddie Roach. The two have reunited for the fight, Pacquiao’s first in the U.S. in more than two years.
But while Pacquiao is favoured, there’s always a chance in boxing that age often catches up to a fighter in the wrong place — the ring.

And that adds some intrigue to seeing a fighter who has been so much of a part of the fabric of boxing for the last 15 years.
“He’s unbelievable,” Roach said.
“His work ethic is great, he has fast hands and he still hits hard. I think he actually wants to knock this opponent out.”
That may be asking a lot since Pacquiao went nearly a decade without knocking anyone out before stopping Lucas Martin Matthysse in a fight in Malaysia last July. But if Pacquiao needed any more motivation he got it after Broner mocked the Parkinson’s that Roach has.
“Manny’s a great guy to have on your side,” Roach said.
