Jack To Appear On Pacquiao-Broner Card
Badou Jack is near a deal to return to the ring on January 19th, with an eye to be more active in 2019.
Jack is set to move down to welterweight and face Marcus Browne on on the undercard of WBA “regular” welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao’s first title defense against Adrien Broner.
“It looks like my next fight won’t be against another champion,” said Jack, a 35-year-old nicknamed “The Ripper” who was born on Halloween in Sweden. “I want to be more active, fighting three or four times a year.”
“[Jack’s] ahead of me, and I don’t wanna fight anybody who is behind me. If I’m what they claim I am in the boxing world, then he’s a person I should fight. [Jack] responded to me on Instagram saying he wanted to fight,” Browne said of the 35 year old Jack.
“He’s not busy, I’m not busy, and the champions have other fights. So I feel like I’m in a great position, and I’m waiting for Badou Jack to step up to the plate. I can’t wait to fight him and beat his ass. [Jack’s] performance against Stevenson was solid. I don’t really see anything special about him, but at the end of the day, he’s a two-time world champion and a solid name. I want to beat him before going after the champions in no particular order.”
Jack returns to action following a draw with WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson at the Air Canada Centre in Tornoto, Canada, marking his second draw in eight fights.
Browne’s last fight was when he took knockout artist Lenin Castillo the distance in August.
