SHOWTIME Sports will present live streaming coverage of the Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner Los Angeles Media Day across social platforms this Wednesday, just 10 days before the welterweight world championship between two of boxing’s biggest stars on Saturday, January 19 live on SHOWTIME PPV® from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Senator Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, boxing’s only eight-division world champion, will end his two-year hiatus from a U.S. boxing ring when he returns to Las Vegas to defend his World Boxing Association welterweight world title against former four-division world champion and must-see attraction Adrien “The Problem” Broner. The Pacquiao vs. Broner world championship event will take place Saturday, Jan. 19 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Pacquiao vs. Broner and its co-main event fights will be produced and distributed live by SHOWTIME PPV and presented by Premier Boxing Champions beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
Pacquiao is coming off a vintage performance in July where he stopped Argentine slugger and world champion Lucas Matthysse inside seven rounds. Now, Pacquiao returns to the U.S. in his remarkable fourth reign as welterweight world champion. Broner, one of the most talented fighters in boxing, is aiming for his second stint as 147-pound champion. If victorious, Broner also will add a career-defining win against a future Hall of Famer to his already stellar resume.
Two of boxing’s biggest stars, Senator Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner, will make an official announcement about their upcoming boxing plans during a bi-coastal press tour. SHOWTIME Sports will present the official live stream of the Pacquiao-Broner New York and Los Angeles press conferences across digital platforms during their two-city press tour on Monday and Tuesday.
The live fully produced program will be available via Facebook @ShowtimeBoxing and YouTube @ShoSports channel.
A three-time Fighter of the Year and the Boxing Writers Association, Pacquiao is America’s reigning Fighter of the Decade. Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KOs) is the only sitting Congressman and Senator to win a world title. Cincinnati’s Broner (33-3-1, 24 KOs) is a former four-division world title holder and one of boxing’s most popular and colorful personalities.
