The eight-division wolrd champion and current WBA world welterweight champion – Manny Pacquiao (60-7-2) announced that he has one goal in his mind for his fight against Adrain “The Porlbem”Broner.
After two weeks they will meet in Las Vegas and the winner will leave the ring as the WBA welterweight champion.
“I am not making a prediction but my goal is to knock out Broner,” said Manny on Monday as he was getting ready for a workout, which included 12 rounds of hitting the mitts with Freddie Roach, at the Wild Card Boxing Club.
“I am looking for a knockout against Broner. I have to maximize the opportunity. I forgot how much fun winning a fight by knockout was until I stopped Lucas Matthyssee last summer to win the WBA welterweight title. It felt great to win that way and the fans loved it too, so why not try for it again?
I have nothing personal against Adrien Broner. This fight is strictly business. He is fun and he knows how to sell a fight.”
It might sound crazy, but only one of Manny’s last 10 victories came after a K.O. – against Lucas Martin Matthysse in the seventh round.
