Manny Pacquiao Vs. Adrien Broner Preview And Odds; Joshua Vs. Wilder Negotiations: Boxing Biz

Manny Pacquiao probably wouldn’t have many problems if he were facing Adrien Broner in the prime of Pacquiao’s career. Yes, Broner is tough, and yes, Broner has power. But Broner has never beaten an elite fighter, and he’s not been great when he fights above the 140-pound junior welterweight division. If Pacquiao was at his best, he’d likely overwhelm Broner and probably stop him. But when people tune in Saturday to watch Pacquiao vs. Broner on Showtime PPV, they won’t be watching the best version of Pacquiao.

But is any version of Pacquiao—who reportedly will make a $10 million guarantee along with a percentage of the PPV profit—a version that Broner can beat, especially at 147 pounds? Most of the boxer predictions say no—though, to be fair, a few have said they believe in Broner—and he is a +250 underdog, meaning you’d win $250 on a $100 bet. Pacquiao, meanwhile, is a -325 favorite, which means you’d have bet $325 to win $100.

Broner, who will make a $2.5 million guarantee and a percentage on the backend, has a chance, but it doesn’t seem like a great chance.

“No way Broner wins,” welterweight titlist Shawn Porter told “I’ve fought Broner and I’ve sparred with Manny. I think Manny’s too quick, too strong. In all aspects, Manny is better than Broner.”

Yet you should still tune in to the Showtime PPV telecast, and there are plenty of reasons why. Here are three of them.

1) Pacquiao might be too old: He’s 40 years old, and his skills certainly aren’t getting sharper at this point in his life. Yes, he knocked out Matthysse last year, but Matthysse was a shell of his former self. It’s unclear if we should take anything away from that bout. At some point, considering some of the hellacious battles he’s fought in the ring, Pacquiao is going to get old in the ring overnight. So far, it hasn’t happened. Perhaps Broner could be more aggressive than usual to see if the old, fiery Pacquiao is still there. “Pacquiao’s a legend,” Broner said. “He’ll always go down as one of the best in the boxing business. But I just feel like it’s my time to take over this sport, and I’m coming to take the throne from Pacquiao.”

2) Is Broner really focused this time?: The problem with Broner throughout his career is that he’s so obviously talented but has underperformed every time he’s fought an elite opponent. His training camps aren’t always great, and he’s had a myriad of legal distractions throughout his career. This time, though, is different, he said (which, frankly, is what he’s said in the past, as well). But this might be his last chance at a massive payday. So, perhaps he does have a different mindset. “I know what’s at stake,” Broner said. “A win over Pacquiao could take my career somewhere that I can only dream of. So I’ve got to take it seriously.”

Manny Pacquiao Vs. Adrien Broner: 10 Things You Should Know About Saturday’s Fight

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – JANUARY 18: WBA welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (L) and Adrien Broner face off during their official weigh-in at MGM Grand Garden Arena on January 18, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Manny Pacquiao vs. Adrien “The Problem” Broner is the first high-profile boxing matchup of 2019. At 40 years old, Pacquiao still has a massive audience, and Broner is perhaps the most polarizing fighter in the sport. Together, they’re one of the most intriguing fights we’ll see in 2019.

Here are the 10 things you should know about the bout.

Date and Time

The fight takes place on Saturday, January 19. The card begins at 9 pm ET. It takes place on the same day as the UFC’s debut on ESPN. That event should provide some viewership competition for the Pacquiao-Broner fight.


The bout takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This fight will be Pacquiao’s first bout in the United States since November 2016 when the future Hall of Famer took a unanimous decision away from Jessie Vargas at the Thomas & Mack Arena, also in Vegas.

How to Watch

Showtime will broadcast and stream the bout as an exclusive pay-per-view. Fans can order it from their local cable or satellite provider, or watch it via live stream on the Showtime app.

What’s at Stake?

Pacquiao is the WBA “regular” welterweight champion. His title will be on the line, but perhaps more important is a potential rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr. It’s not confirmed, but there are rumors Pacquiao could get Mayweather out of retirement for another massive payday.

A win for Broner would be a career-saver. He needs a win over a big name, and few have more weight than Pacquiao.

Weigh-In Results

Both fighters made weight. Pacquiao came in just half-a-pound lighter than Broner.

Per Sportsbook, Pacquiao is a minus-300 favorite (h/tproboxingodds). Broner is a plus-235 underdog.


  • Badou Jack vs. Marcus Browne
  • Nordine Oubaali vs. Rau’shee Warren for WBC bantamweight title
  • Jhack Tepora vs. Hugo Ruiz for interim WBA featherweight title

Last Time Out

In Pacquiao’s last bout, he captured the WBA regular title with a dominant performance against Lucas Matthysse in July 2018. Pacquiao scored the seventh-round TKO. Matthysse looked as if he had one foot out the door in the fight. He looked like a shell of the fighter who was once one of the most feared in his weight region.

In any case, the win set Pacquiao up to sign with Premier Boxing Champions and Al Haymon, and it created another path to a potential fight with Mayweather.

In Broner’s last bout, he walked away with a controversial draw against Vargas in April 2018 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. I thought Vargas deserved the decision, and Broner was fortunate to escape with a draw.

Best Bet Per Peter Kahn

According to Forbes’ boxing odds expert Peter Kahn, the best bet to make on Saturday’s fight is Pacquiao by decision.  Kahn wrote:

“Although I feel Broner will be more competitive than many people have expressed, I don’t see Broner winning this fight, so even though there’s value at +258 (wager $100 to win $258) for Broner as an underdog, I simply don’t see him winning the fight, therefore, the $100 isn’t a wise bet.”

My Prediction

I concur with Kahn. I give Broner a chance to win if he can be aggressive on the inside with Pacquiao, and look to effectively counterpunch. However, in the end, Pacquiao will be too quick and busy, and he’ll win a decision.

Hello Again and Thanks for reading it is I David "Top40" Ellenberger with an update on the status of my lawsuit against Alphabet inc case # 4:20-CV-04877-SVK  and the website and life in general. By now if you regularly visit you may have read this section "author info" or Bio. So I am adding to it with more bio and more info. I originally liked the idea of voting on the internet 20-25 years ago when I first got online with WebTV (does anyone remember that?). The technology at that time was not advanced enough to easily be able to vote online or watch videos or much else for that matter but I was hooked and look at what we can do now with videos, IOT, and everything else, but I digress. I started about 5 years ago and the user base has been going up steadily ever since. I wanted to be another Facebook, with music and voting and that is all coming together slowly but surely. BTW if you want to help or have any interest please feel free to email me anytime.  Now in my previous Author Info or bio page I made it clear or at least I thought I made it clear, I am personally suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud. I have evidence to prove they are not counting all the pageviews, among other things and defrauding myself and probably millions of other website owners and content creators out of Billions of dollars. So if I wasn't clear or you didn't know it's true I am suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud the case was recently moved from my state of Kentucky to N. California to make it easier for Alphabet inc. to steam roll me or so they think. Needless to say if you are interested and I hope you are you can look the case up online under my name "David Russell Ellenberger" or the case # which is 4:20-CV-04877-SVK.

Now, I want to make it clear to you and everyone that I am not suing Alphabet inc. aka Google for fraud just because I want a million dollars for nothing. I am suing Google for fraud because I think they are committing  a serious crime with worldwide and societal ramifications, it is a  very serious problem.  I am suing Google for fraud because to put it simply the analytics numbers don't add up at least not in my favor or yours, there is something very fishy going on with the Google analytics numbers. Of course Google has an excuse for every one of them but I have reasons and the actual numbers and they don't add up, more about the numbers later. Companies like Google are making Billions of dollars a year in profits telling us data is the most valuable thing and misleading us and misdirecting the media and the world every chance they can.  Now data is valuable and they are making billions in profits seemingly like magic but there is no magic to it just corruption and lies. One thing Alphabet inc. aka Google is really making their money from and that is advertising dollars and they are putting all of this advertising on the websites other people have created. Websites that I have created and  websites you have created and websites millions of others around the world have created websites or content. For example Just writing a text is creating content and that's where Google puts the billions in advertising they receive and keeping most of it for themselves. Yes content others have created and yet somehow they are keeping almost all of these billions for themselves and not distributing it equitably to the real workers the true content creators who actually deserve the advertising monies. Google has made it's billions on the backs of you and me. Think about that for a minute, how can they continue to justify this? They Can't, it has to change.

For example if I were to prevail in the current lawsuit just half of the monies or $20 billion put into a basic account and compounded at 5% annually we could realistically employ over 800,000 people at $24,000 a year, indefinitely.  Sounds unbelievable but its true and if we only employed 400,000 people we could pay them $48,000 a year indefinitely. Its all true. Its simply a matter of having the money and the will to do it. Now is 400,000 people a lot well yes it would be more employees than almost any other company in the world and more than half the population of the entire city of Louisville, Ky.

I David Russell Ellenberger through my website am suing Google to try to help right a wrong. A wrong committed by Google that has simply gotten out of hand. Most people may think they can't do anything about it. Nothing can stop Google, the politicians don't care they use all of Googles data to further their own campaigns and line their own pockets while the rest of us keep on creating the content for Google, nothing can be done, this however is not the case, we can do something. The politicians and Alphabet inc. aka Google have done nothing to help society at large other than organize it so they can keep more money in secret and pay off all their buddies with their fraudulently obtained money. It's gotten so bad that the politicians and others in control won't even talk about it, they ignore it and hope it goes away, they won't even try to stop google because it is helping them too much and maybe they are scared of Google or who knows what they may be thinking. But it looks like fraud and it's coming to an end.

I'm telling you we can do something and I David Russell Ellenberger an average citizen Content Creator am saying to you, I'm not scared of Google because I have nothing left to loose.  I David Russell Ellenberger am telling you there is something you too can do, if nothing else, tell all your friends to come to aka IT40, believe these words and Create your Content. Further I promise to you and all who read this if I do prevail in my lawsuit against Alphabet Inc. I will use half of any monies I may receive to pay "content creators" a living wage. I pledge to anyone who is reading this, I will use half of any monies I may receive to help those who really do want to work on the internet and create content and tell us what they think. I will use half of any money so you can Get Paid, I want you to get paid for the content you create and get paid everyday and Get Paid to Vote create data and to be able to do this work online and from your home or anywhere in the world you care to be. Because in the words of an ancient scholar Y-O-U are the business Y-O-U are creating all the data, Y-O-U are the content creators and Y-O-U are all that matters.

Now the main thing I want you to take away form this and to know, Alphabet inc. is and has been committing fraud against you, me and everyone who uses the internet. I don't think Google started out to defraud the world it has just degenerated into this endless morass of corruption and fraud and no one seems to care, Well I care and I know you care too.  Sadly Google has been doing this with impunity for years and it is only getting worse. Please don't let them fool you with their lies and obfuscation. Do some research create some content build a website and research the analytics numbers you will find I am right. Google owes you, me and everyone online thousands if not 10's of thousands of dollars for all the data and advertising dollars they have co-opted from you and the rest of the world. So join with me don't use any Google products or file your own lawsuit in federal court against Alphabet inc. I will be glad to help you any way I can and show you how to do it if need be. It will take a sincere effort on your part but it will definitely help your self esteem, society and the world.

Now that's about all I have to say on this subject for now.  I will tell you this if you want more information or you have questions or comments for me, my email is [email protected] Thank you for reading looking and listening and believing in Please tell all your friends about us and don't forget to vote Thumbs up or down and refresh your page when your done. oh yeah and those funny old men running for president vote on one of them too or not. One last Thing, I need all the help I can get I am only 1 person but together and with todays technology we can move mountains and reframe society and our world the way we want it to be. Thank you ttyl
