    Even though he regularly reminds everyone that he's a dick, I was still kinda hoping Broner might have some success in the fight. Win? Not so sure about that, but make an argument of it, maybe dump the old man on his arse at some point. It was an odd fight, Broner did what he does and sacrificed any chance of winning in an effort to distance himself from losing. I'm not saying he could have won if he tried, but trying would have been a good start. Manny was a bit weird too, flying around doing the Amir Khan running whilst punching routine, strange stuff. Broner's post fight antics would have been quite funny if it weren't for them being a bit tragic, he's clearly got a screw loose. In the post fight presser he was running through his usual routine about being hood and all that jazz, then there would be a pause in the questioning whilst John or Dave from weloveboxing.com prepared a shit question to fire at Broner. During those pauses I genuinely thought he might cry.

    I noticed this in his fight with Floyd also. Is this new for Manny? I had never noticed this before in any of his other fights except for Floyd and now Boner.

    Adrien Broner post-fight press conference: American threatens to ‘f*** up’ journalist after defeat by Manny Pacquiao

    Adrien Broner threatened to “f*** up” an American journalist after having his belief that he beat Manny Pacquiao questioned.

    The American welterweight lost a wide decision to the Filipino, landing 50 punches in the entire fight and displaying a conservative approach throughout.

    And after landing one punch in the 12th round, ESPN’s Dan Rafael questioned whether Broner truly believed he won the fight.

    “Hell yes, I won the fight,” Broner said. “When you believe you want cheese on that burger, you know what you’re looking for?

    “Hell yes, I thought I won, yes, we got a love-hate relationship, I’ve got the mic, I’ll f*** you up. I really did believe I won the fight.”

    Broner also insulted Showtime presenter Jim Gray, barking at him to come and interview him in order to make further excuses for the defeat.

    “Bring your mother f****** ass over here, I got a lot to say,” the boxer said.

    “They trying to get that money again with Pacquiao and Floyd but it’s cool, I ain’t worried about it I’m still that n***** man. I’m on top Cincinnati stand up, westside. Two-five."



    Gray then informed Broner of his recent record, which includes losses to Pacquiao, Shawn Porter and Mikey Garcia and a draw with Jessie Vargas in his last seven outings.

    Broner didn’t take kindly to the comment, shrugging off his mediocre record against the best in the sport and insisting he would beat the 60-year-old seven times out of seven.



    “I’m 3-3-1 in my last 7 fights but I’d be 7-0 against you,” Broner added.

    Pacquiao, still the WBA regular champion, looks set to face Floyd Mayweather next and not super champion Keith Thurman.

    Manny Pacquiao ‘may have to retire from boxing’ after suffering eye injury during Adrien Broner victory

    Everything seemed fine following the win on Saturday night, but Pacquiao woke up in great distress Sunday morning

    Manny Pacquiao proved he still had plenty left in the tank with a comprehensive unanimous decision victory over Adrien Broner in Las Vegas on Saturday.

    Straight after recording the victory that moved the Filipino senator’s record to 61-7-2, Pacquiao called for a money-spinning rematch with Floyd Mayweather.

    However, according to reports, the boxing legend may have suffered a career-ending injury during his win at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

    It’s believed that some of Pacquiao’s camp fear that the boxer might have suffered a detached retina. The 40-year-old reportedly complained of pain and vision loss in his left eye the morning after the fight, according to the New York Daily News’ Wallace Matthews.

    Matthews also reported a different source in Pacquiao’s camp claimed the injury was a minor corneal scratch from the tape on Broner’s gloves.



    Pacquiao is reportedly scheduled to fly home to the Philippines to see an eye specialist and if he is indeed diagnosed with a detached retina, that would not only throw a rematch with Mayweather into doubt, but his whole career.

    The origin of Pacquiao’s injury reportedly stems from a minor corneal scratch from the tape on Broner’s gloves. Matthews cited a different source inside Pacquiao’s camp for that information.

    Given the ease of Pacquiao’s victory – despite what Broner had to say about the outcome post-fight – it’s quite shocking to learn the injury he has suffered.

    In the past two years, names like Beibut Shumenov and Anthony Ogogo have headed into retirement and semi-retirement respectively because of devastating eye issues.

    One has to think a man with such responsibilities and many passions as Pacquiao wouldn’t want to risk his vision with another fight, should that be the case.

    @brucelee You can be my lawyer anytime.
    Hey there Gandalf! Long time no talk. I miss our discussion here. Is Bilbo still alive? I noticed he has not been posting here. It has been more or less 4 years since I actively posted here.

    I had to leave saddoboxing to prepare for the bar examinations. I passed the bar 3 years ago and busy with my law practice. 😊😊😊

    I am back to Pac nut hugging. 😂😂😂

    Until boxing orgs grow a pair and begin sanctioning useless bums like Boner for the shit they spew all over televised events, we're going to continue having mindless punks like this asshole.

    By the time he's 40 he'll be (a) dead, (b) in prison, (c) some drunk, fat has-been sleeping under a bridge somewhere, or (d) who the f*ck knows or cares.

    Damn has this been posted yet

    spokesman for boxer Manny Pacquiao says the famed fighter’s Los Angeles home was robbed at about the time he was in the ring with rival Adrien Broner in Las Vegas.

    Spokesman Mike Quinn confirmed the burglary to NBC News.

    Los Angeles police said a burglary was reported about 4:15 p.m. Sunday in the Larchmont neighborhood. It was unclear if anyone was at home at the time.

    The 40-year-old dominated over Broner, who is at least a decade younger, shutting down talk of possible retirement

    If they interrogate Boner they'd better bring along a translator (hood-to-English).

    Sad to know that Bilbo is no longer with us. Whoever he is, I know that he is in a better place probably laughing at the silly talks we are still doing here. 😢😢😢

    Manny Pacquiao Q&A: 'I Don't Feel 40 in the Ring'

    Manny Pacquiao proved he still packs plenty of punch in his unanimous decision win over Adrien Broner on Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

    Pacquiao threw 568 punches to Broner’s 295 and cruised in the 12-round victory, showing he still has the speed, power and endurance to be elite (SI.com scored the fight 118-110). He might not be the fighter he once was, but at 40 years old, Pacquiao showed he’s still one of the marquee names in the sport.

    SI.com’s Chris Mannix caught up with Pacquiao after his win over Broner to discuss what’s next for the Filipino legend.

    SI: So—your first fight at 40. How did you feel in there?

    MP: I felt fine. I don't feel 40 in the ring. I feel the same as I always did, just more experienced. The biggest difference is in training. The Jeff Horn fight [in 2017], I felt burned out in training. In the fight my mind wanted to do something, but my body was too tight. I overtrained. The last two fights, I adjusted. Sometimes when I push myself, I can't recover overnight. I have to give my body an extra day to rest.

    SI: Broner was pretty upset—he thought he clearly won the fight.

    MP: Maybe he was overwhelmed because he survived the 12 rounds? [Trainer] Buboy [Fernandez] kept telling me don't be too aggressive, don't be careless, take your time, it will come. Broner is a counterpuncher, but he didn't want to make any action. So I had to make adjustments to make the action.

    MANNIX: Pacquiao Dispatches Broner—But Is a Bigger Fight on the Horizon?

    SI: When you saw Floyd Mayweather sitting ringside, did you think he was going to get in the ring after and agree to fight you?

    MP: I wasn't thinking about that. I knew he was there. He came into my dressing room before, said good luck. I'm still here in boxing. I want to fight the best fighters out there. If he cannot fight on my level, he better stay retired.

    SI: When do you plan to fight again?

    MP: May or June. I have to balance training with my work in the [Filipino] Senate.



    SI: How long do you want to keep fighting?

    MP: I think I can fight for two or three more years. My family is very supportive. I've explained to them, my wife, my kids, my mom, this is what I love to do. I feel good, I see the doctor for regular checks.

    SI: But why are you still fighting? You're a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

    MP: I'm passionate about the sport. It's why I'm still here. [If I retired] I'd have no problem with money. I'm blessed by God. I just want to fight.

    SI: So back to the Philippines, back to the Senate?

    MP: I'll be in the office [this] week. There are a lot of bills that need to pass. We just passed the tobacco tax increase. That was very important. The government needs the extra money. I passed a bill for the protection of overseas workers. I want to start a Philippine boxing commission. We need protections, proper requirements to help fighters. I want to make ROTC mandatory. We need more soldiers. Not only for wars, but for dealing with disasters.

    SI: Do you want to run for president of your country?

    MP: Right now I don't have a plan to run for president. But if that comes calling, why not?
