"I am fighting Adrien Broner, " Pacquiao said, adding he was with Mayweather in Japan and mentioned that he, not Mayweather, owned a belt, so "you come challenge me".

Broner is fresh off an entertaining majority draw against Vargas in April which featured a much more focused version of the fighter who lost a lifeless and wide decision to Mikey Garcia nine months earlier. I know when I win this fight, there's more money to come. "If he comes out of his retirement, we'll see after this fight, but we can not underestimate Adrien Broner".

Manny Pacquiao confirmed Monday he will defend his WBA world welterweight crown against Adrien Broner in Las Vegas on January 19, ending a two-year absence from the ring in the United States.

"Like I said, it's about Pacquiao and Adrien Broner and who I think will win - I think Manny Pacquiao wins the fight off of his experience, his speed and his legs".

"Manny has had an ongoing payment plan with the IRS the last two years, and a fight like this I think the IRS is very happy because he is able to handle whatever needs to be done for his taxes", Sean Gibbons, the matchmaker for Pacquiao's MP Promotions and a Pacquiao confidant, told ESPN. He fightin' me. I'm about to beat your m--f--ing ass and he's anxious about Floyd?

Broner, a former super-featherweight, lightweight, light-welterweight and welterweight world title holder, was once considered the heir apparent to Mayweather. "I'm gonna (mess) him up". The things he's done in the game are unbelievable. "I'll hit the jackpot overnight". I know January 19 I gotta be at the top of my game. This fight means a lot to me. "We know he can go to sleep, and I got the power to do it". "We know he can go to sleep".

Stephen Espinoza, who heads Showtime Sports, said he believes Broner is a live underdog.

"Yes, of course, " Pacquiao insisted. "Adrien Broner is a high-calibre fighter". Broner never backs down from a challenger.

"As long as I've known him and worked with him he's never turned down a fight, not against bigger opponents like Shawn Porter, not against big punchers like Marcos Maidana, not against the guys that no one wants to fight".

"Those of you who think this is an easy fight or an easy bet because of the odds, think again".
