Pacquiao-Broner Official For Jan. 19 In Las Vegas

I guess those “talks” broke down.

Boxing icon Manny Pacquiao will make his return to the “sweet science” when he trades leather with former four-division world champion Adrien Broner in a WBA welterweight title fight scheduled for Sat., Jan. 19, 2019 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sorry DAZN subscribers, this one airs exclusively on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV).

”I have missed fighting in Las Vegas, it has been a second home to me,” Pacquiao said. “Returning to the MGM Grand Garden Arena to defend my world title against Adrien Broner is an exciting way to stage my homecoming. Adrien is a tough opponent with an accomplished record. But if I have learned one thing while serving in the Philippine Congress and Senate, it is problem solving.”

Pacquaio (60-7-2), who turns 40 in less than a month, was last seen knocking around Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse last July in Malaysia (watch it). The 29 year-old Broner (33-3-1, 1 NC), meanwhile, is coming off a 12-round draw opposite Jesse Vargas back in April.

“I have paid my dues in this sport, and now it’s time for me to get mine,” Broner said. “I get more views than everybody when I fight. A lot of people are going to see me pack off Pacquiao into retirement, and without his belt.”

Tickets for Pacquiao vs. Broner go on sale this Sat. (Nov. 24) and start at $ 1,500, $ 1,000, $ 750, $ 500, $ 300, $ 200, $ 100, not including applicable service charges. Boxing fans can order seats online through AXS.com, charge by phone at 866-740-7711 or in person at any MGM Resorts International box office.
