Manny Pacquiao's translator goes on X-rated rant against Adrien Broner

One piece of evidence that may point to it being true is Dillian Whyte's recent statement that he's been hearing rumors Anthony Joshua will fight Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller in Madison Square Garden.

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.

After years of negotiations and anticipations, Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather finally met in the boxing ring in May of 2015. "I would like these two fights to happen and then maybe President Manny Pacquiao after that".

The Filipino six-weight world champion has vied for a rematch ever since, though he claims all his attention is now on beating Mayweather's former close friend Broner.

There's also speculation that Pacquiao, 60-7-2, 39 KOs, would fight his old rival Floyd Mayweather again soon after the two met again at an National Basketball Association game at the Staples Centre on Tuesday. But Broner said there is even more at stake in this fight than claiming that belt. "During an interview with TMZ Sports ahead of Adrien Broner fight, the Filipino legend was being the nice guy that he is, quoting sentences like 'It's easy to say, but hard to do" and "I'm not prediciting the fight".

"But I'm not thinking about that now". "Of course, I'm praying that he will resolve his problems and he will get through his problems". Pacquiao said when pressed by Shawn Porter on the show. This was a decision by his team to avoid any conflict since Wild Card is Pacquiao's home gym. "He's just locked in on Manny Pacquiao".

Pacquiao looked good in his brief in-ring workout Wednesday, pounding Roach's ribcage while working the mitts.

For his knockout win over Lucas Matthysse, Pacquiao said he only trained once the week of the actual fight, slowing down so that he had more strength on fight night.

Two Britons injured in fatal bus crash in Cuba
Past year in all of Cuba there were over 11,000 auto accidents on their poorly-conditioned highways. Five others are in a critical condition following the accident in the east on Thursday afternoon.

Roach said: "Floyd put himself on TV for a reason".

Pacquiao, on the other hand, is set to face Broner on January 20 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Trash talking has never been his thing, really.

Fighters can get old overnight, or so goes the conventional belief in boxing, but Roach says there are signs that can manifest in the gym.

The knockout was Pacquiao's first in nine years and 14 fights since he won his first welterweight belt by stopping Miguel Cotto in the 12th round in 2009.

Episode 2 of the Emmy Award-winning series premieres this Friday at 9:30 p.m. p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME as Broner prepares to challenge the eight-division world champion and future first-ballot Hall of Famer Pacquiao on Saturday, January 19, in the biggest fight of Broners career. He's getting older, it's part of life.

"I have no problem fighting anybody as long as there is no problems with the negotiations", said Pacquiao.
