Pacquiao plays down presidency talk, eyes on Broner

Manny Pacquiao challenges Floyd Mayweather to... a game of one-on-one hoops

I want to be in 100 percent condition and ready for the fight on January 19. After throwing one near Mayweather's section, he shook his old rival's hand. "He came to camp with a look on his face like this is the one he's got to have". Broner also made it clear that a victory over Pacquiao would compensate for the times he's come up short in the ring.

Manny Pacquiao has been fully focused on next weekend's fight with Adrien Broner but on Thursday the Filipino eight-division world champion still found time to take a subtle jab at Floyd Mayweather. On that night, Mayweather emerged the victor by unanimous decision after 12 rounds that failed to live up to expectations. Mayweather recently disposed of a Japanese kickboxer in record time, while the Filipino boxing icon is busy preparing for his upcoming fight with Adrien Broner. It seems things went sour for both during Broner's WBA world super-lightweight title defense against Mayweather-promoted Briton Ashley Theophane back in 2016.

After a knockout drought, Pacquiao had a return to form in July when he stunned defending champion Lucas Matthysse with a seventh-round knockout in Kuala Lumpur to claim the title.

Fortune feels Pacquiao has gotten stronger as he moved up in weight while keeping his speed.

Instead of downplaying his age, Pacquiao has celebrated it by holding a massive birthday party on December 17 in General Santos City that was attended by President Rodrigo Duterte, local athletes, celebrities, and political allies.

"Rest and recovery is definitely a key part of training".

Over the years when boxers have tried to get under his skin he usually just laughs and says something along the lines of "I will try my best".

Kitagawa put this down to two factors: economic uncertainty among small to medium businesses and weak holiday purchases. Gartner got nearly the same results with 68.6 million PC shipments during the same period (down 4.3% year-over-year).

"Right now at this age sometimes you can not recover overnight".

"Well if God wants me to be, then why not?" he said, when asked if he would like the position.

Pacquiao continued his streak of being perennially tardy, stepping into Wild Card Boxing in its nondescript Hollywood strip mall location about an hour later than expected.

This is how Fortune, a former Australian heavyweight boxer who runs a gym bearing his name here and serves as Pacquiao's strength and conditioning coach, sees the outcome of Pacquiao-Broner.

Roach is only interested in Broner and a rematch with Mayweather.

Pacquiao said on Wednesday that he was looking at one fight at a time and has no plans to fight Mayweather again.

Malignaggi is offering his mini-previews to BoxingScene.com of the next four months of successive 147-pound appearances by Pacquiao against Broner, Keith Thurman-Josesito Lopez (January 26), Shawn Porter-Yordenis Ugas (March 9), Errol Spence-Mikey Garcia (March 16), Terence Crawford-Amir Khan (April 20), and, Danny Garcia-Adrian Granados (April 20).
