Pacquiao-Broner Pressers Set For Next Week
Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner are set to make their January showdown official with a media tour.
Per Keith Idec of Boxing Scene, the Filipino senator and Cincinnati native will officially announce a January 19th Pay-Per-View showdown with a media tour beginning in New York on Monday and Tuesday in Los Angeles, similar to the tour done by Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.
The reported venue for the Showtime produced event will be the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, marking the first defense of Pacquiao’s WBA welterweight title, which he won in July against Lucas Matthysse, and his first fight under the PBC umbrella.
Broner will make his first return to the ring after a majority draw against Jessie Vargas in April at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
