Adrien Broner Trades Jabs With Manny Pacquiao At Press Conference
On January 19, Adrien Broner and Manny Pacquiao will face off in the welterweight title showdown on Showtime Pay-Per-View. Before the big fight, Broner and Pacquiao are already trading verbal jabs.
At a media press conference held at the Waldorf Astoria on Tuesday, Broner made several comments that some people believe to be inappropriate. For example, when he was informed that Pacquiao said he had a way to knock him out, Broner responded:
Oh, he must’ve been talking to Bill Cosby.
Things got a little heated when Pacquiao was asked about a rematch with Floyd Mayweather, who also happens to be an on-again-off-again friend of Broner. Broner responds,
He ain’t fighting Floyd, he’s fighting me. I’m gonna beat your ass, you worry about Floyd, he’s already beat you brother. F*ck the money, I know when I win this fight, there is more money to come. Excuse my language but this ain’t Nickelodeon, this is pay-per-view.
During the press conference, Broner says there’s a reason for his quips and cheap shots.
I got to be the one that sells the fight. His English isn’t that well, you know. Isn’t that good. All he do is smile and say one word at a time. So I got to sell the fight.
