Manny Pacquiao v Adrien Broner Betting Tips Explained


Fight fans are not being made to wait long for the first big boxing match of 2019, with Manny Pacquiao set to step foot inside a professional ring for the 70th time in his glittering professional career when he takes on Adrien Broner, a man who has never truly lived up to his potential despite boasting a 33-3-1 record that has seen him win world titles at four different weights.

It has not been down to a lack of talent – more a lack of work ethic that has prevented Broner from becoming one of the sport’s elite fighters. Despite having 33 professional victories on his record there are very few notable scalps because he has, more often than not, failed to deliver against big-name opposition. ‘The Problem’ has been beaten by the likes of Shawn Porter and Mikey Garcia, while drawing with Jessie Vargas last time out, so can he finally claim a major scalp by beating a man once considered the pound-for-pound number one on the planet?

Broner has certainly got himself in great shape for the fight, but it was only a couple of weeks ago that he was being arrested for failing to show up for multiple court dates in 2018 so you have to wonder just how focused he is on the bout.

Pacquiao, for his part, has a clear goal for this fight – he wants to stop the American. ‘Pacman’ dropped Lucas Matthysse three times as he finally ended a nine-year wait for a stoppage win last July, and the 40-year-old Filipino is determined to not only win back-to-back fights for the first time since 2016, he wants to do it in style by getting the job done inside 12 rounds.

“I am not making a prediction, but my goal is to knock out Broner,” said Pacquiao. “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 Matthysse last summer. 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. He makes me laugh. He knows how to sell himself and to sell a fight.”

But can Pacquiao get the job done inside the distance?

I am confident that the former multiple-weight world champion will have his hand raised at the end of the fight, but I believe he will have to go the full 12 rounds and rely on the judges to give him the nod. While Broner has suffered three defeats in his career, he has never been stopped and I do not believe ‘Pacman’ has the punching power to become the first man to take out ‘The Problem’ inside 12 rounds. Instead I expect him to start fast, build up a lead on the scorecards and then stay out of trouble during the second half of the bout in order to get the decision.
