Showtime is back on PPV with the biggest boxing match of the year which is taking place tonight (Sat., Jan. 19, 2019) from inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Nevada, where Manny Pacquiao will put his WBA regular welterweight world title on the line against controversial former WBA champion Adrien Broner in the main event. At the conclusion of the pay-per-view bout, all three judges heavily favored Pacquiao; they had it 117-111 and 116-112 (twice).
MANILA, Philippines-Is a rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. on the horizon?

"It's a hell of an opportunity and as I said before I ain't just doing this for me, I am doing this s*** for the hood", Broner said.
Only time will tell if the fight indeed would come to fruition at some point in future, but, as things stand, Pacquiao seems more than ready to square off against Mayweather one final time before hanging up the gloves. "God gave me this blessing (of good health)".
"Tell him to come back to the ring and then we will fight", Pacquiao said. Using aggression and quickness, Pacquiao outclassed the reticent Broner, who sat back in an attempt to counter, but threw hardly any punches, and landed even fewer. "And right now I'm living a happy and healthy life". "Hell, yeah, I believe I won the fight".
Mayweather, whose last outing was a farce of an exhibition bout against a Japanese kickboxer, refused the entreaties of a ringside TV reporter to indicate whether he would be willing to fight Pacquiao again.
Broner landed only 50 punches, according to CompuBox and was outlanded by a more than 2-to-1 margin. Broner never landed more than eight punches in any round.
