“Adrien is very confident that he’s gonna shut everybody up, and he’s putting in that work for a career-defining win over a future Hall of Famer in Manny Pacquiao on January 19,” said Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. “Adrien’s a super-talented fighter who is still is in his prime. He has a great opportunity to beat Manny Pacquiao, and it would not surprise me one bit if he does. I give him a great chance to do it, and Adrien believes he’s gonna put it all together and get it done.”
“From Danny, to Keith, to Shawn, to Spence, you have a welterweight division that’s the hottest in all of boxing, right now. All of those guys are fighting for the No. 1 spot. Adrien’s fighting for Manny’s 147-pound WBA title, and styles make fights,”said Ellerbe. “I know Adrien has the style to beat Manny Pacquiao and win his belt. Adrien’s been working really hard, plus, he’s had a tremendous amount of support from people, including myself. He just has to have a great camp and stay on his grind. If he gets beyond Manny, Adrien has a lot of options and opportunities that are limitless.”
Ellerbe certainly knows boxing and believes that Broner has a great shot to defeat Pacquiao. It will certainly be interesting to see who is going to come out on top during the fight. Broner has the age advantage, being 11 years younger than Pacquiao which could play into the fight if the fight goes longer than a few rounds. Pacquiao is known for having great fitness and endurance which Broner will have to keep up with during the course of the fight.
Pacquiao needs this fight in order to have a rematch with Floyd Mayweather which would pay both boxers a ton of money. Broner is playing the spoiler and wants to prevent the matchup and take home the biggest win of his career. Broner has had difficulties staying focused on boxing throughout his career and he will have to remain extremely focused if he want to take down Pacquiao.
