Boxing legend Manny Pacquiao is set to test his will and skill at the age of 40, by defending his WBA Welterweight belt against challenger Adrien Broner, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on 19th January 2019. This is one of the most important fights at the weight class…
Manny Pacquiao hadn’t managed to secure a KO win since 2009 when he put away Lucas Matthysse last July in Kuala Lumpur, where he pressed forward like the Pacquiao of old, looking for those big shots and eventually finishing his rival in the seventh round.
Freddie Roach is a master coach and knows how to get the very best out of his fighter tactically, but Manny Pacquiao has always been a self motivated man and this match up has all the hallmarks of a fight where he’ll want to show just how good he can be.

Manny Pacquiao Vs Adrien Broner Odds
At bet365 online bookmakers, the Manny Pacquiao Vs Adrien Broner betting odds has Adrien Broner down as the +225 underdog, but this gives him a better chance at the odds than most of Manny Pacquiao’s seemingly inferior opposition of late.
The clear bookies favourite is Pacquiao of course, at best odds of -250 with William Hill, which seems quite short but given his overall career achievement and level he is still operating at, ‘Pacman’ still rates a fair bit of betting value to most punters and boxing fans. He looks a worthy -250 favourite here.
Manny Pacquiao Vs Adrien Broner Betting Tips
Broner can be backed at as big as +225 with bet365* in the Pacquiao vs Broner betting odds, but he comes here on the back of a loss and a draw and Pacquiao is not the ideal opponent for a confidence boosting comeback win.
Pacquiao’s coach Freddie Roach still believes his fighter has what it takes to beat anyone and Pacquiao himself said he is looking for a TKO/KO win once again. This isn’t because he feels he needs to make a point of course, but simply because he enjoys finishing off opponents, which means he will be very dangerous for Broner.
Broner is very good at covering up on the inside and throwing hooks over the top combined with solid body work. However, Manny Pacquiao will be looking to use his feet to get in and out, popping off warning shots as he moves off.
Manny Pacquiao will probably be looking to size up Adrien Broner for a few rounds, all the while frustrating the American with his work rate and powers of evasion. As the rounds roll on, the Filipino legend will find significant openings in which to hurt Broner, which could spell the beginning of the end of the fight.
