Adrien Broner threatens to assault interviewer after losing to Manny Pacquiao

Adrien Broner threatens to assault interviewer after losing to Manny Pacquiao

Pacquiao was clearly the favourite of the crowd of 13,025, who gathered at the MGM Grand arena to see if the part-time fighter still had some fight in him.

Retired great Floyd Mayweather attended the fight, fuelling speculation of a rematch against Pacquiao, who the undefeated American beat in 2015.

The fight program between Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner will begin at around 3am this Sunday. "I'm so happy because God gave me this good health".

"I don't believe my career is over", Pacquiao said. I prove it. Manny Pacquaio's journey still continues.

"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.

He wanted to see what Manny Pacquiao had left and if a rematch with him later in the year would be of interest.

White House Asked For Options To Strike Iran
Trump's National Security Adviser John Bolton led the approach to the Pentagon , which compiled options, the newspaper reported . Bolton also told CNN that month that the USA would hold Iran responsible for the actions of militias in Iraq, Iran's close ally.

"Tell Floyd to come back to the ring and we will fight, I'm willing to fight Floyd."

Pacquiao let his hands go and caused Broner issues.

During his term as Cavite governor from 2014 to 2016, Remulla was part of the United Nationalist Alliance along with Pacquiao, who was then the representative of Sarangani. Broner never landed more than seven punches in any round. The Filipino mega star used a superb right jab to set up his lethal straight left throughout the bout and he dug to Broner's body repeatedly in every round. From that point forward, though, Broner (33-4-1, 24 KOs) rarely engaged and opted to shy away from "Pac Man" until the final bell. Pacquiao connected on 112 of 568 and Broner landed 50 of 295.

Broner widely protested the decision as the crowd jeered him. Pacquiao later connected with a three-punch combination that forced Broner to the ropes. He landed only one punch in the final round and as he has always done when he has stepped up to face an elite opponent, he lost a decisive decision: Pacquiao, Mikey Garcia, Shawn Porter and Marcos Maidana.

Pacquiao eased off in the eighth but peaked again in the ninth.
