Watch Manny Pacquiao vs Adrien Broner Live Stream HERE

It's a great time to watch Manny Pacquiao Fight!

Manny Pacquiao makes his return to the ring to put his secondary WBA welterweight world title on the line against one of the more controversial names in the sport, Adrien Broner. The bout will go down inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, which is very fitting to get the 2019 calendar year in boxing started.

Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KOs) will be making his first defense of that WBA "regular" welterweight championship since he captured it from Lucas Matthysse via TKO in the seventh round in July 2018. The 40-year-old, eight-division champion continues to show us all that he can still get it done in the ring, and a successful defense -- especially a convincing one -- of that welterweight title on Saturday night may even put him in line for that rumored rematch with Floyd Mayweather (whether fans want to see it or not) somewhere down the line.

Manny Pacquiao returns to Sin City in a fight with Adrien Broner both men hope will lead to future glory.

Pacquiao is fighting for the first time since turning 40 but brushed off a 2017 defeat against Jeff Horn by finishing Lucas Matthysse in his last outing and hopes a win over Broner will set up a rematch with Floyd Mayweather.

He will receive a guaranteed purse of $14 million plus a percentage of the profits which is expected to reap him at worst another $14 million.

Broner is somewhat lucky to be getting a shot at Pacquiao’s WBA title after going winless in his past two appearances against Mikey Garcia (unanimous decision loss) and Jessie Vargas (majority draw).

But he’s stayed out of trouble long enough to make it to the MGM Grand today and hopes a win will revive his career.

Rising Australian hope George Kambosos Jr, a training partner of Pacquiao’s, featured on the undercard and continued his charge up the 135-pound rankings in his American debut with a straight-forward win against journeyman Rey Perez.

Broner, 29, certainly has a deserved number of critics who believe he has never evolved above 135 pounds to the fighter he could've been despite winning four titles in as many divisions. Broner still lacks a defining victory on his resume and has lost badly each time he has stepped up against elite competition (Marcos Maidana, Shawn Porter, Mikey Garcia).

On the flip side, Broner has been his worst enemy outside of the ring and still has youth and an incredible amount of talent on his side should you believe, despite a bevy of legal troubles during training camp, that this is finally the time he takes his career seriously in the biggest fight of his career.

As is typically the case, Broner has said all the right things head of his first PPV headlining role.

Let's get it on!
