@johnnytightlips. apart from both fighters making a lot of money this fight as no relevance on the World scene, Both are way past their best, it will be a shame if Manny does not retire before he gets hurt. Regards Mervyn the Gee
I agree this does nothing on the world scene. Neither of these guys are a threat to the Crawford, Spence, Thurman group.

But it is a fun mash up of styles and personalities. I think the personalities involved will create some excitement for this fight and get fans to jump in. Sometimes, a fight doesn't need to have world implications. Sometimes it just needs to be fun. And I think this will be.

Not feeling this as a PPV. Showtime? Yeah I'd make sure to be home and likely have a couple of friends over. But $60-$80 right after the holidays crush my wallet doesn't make me happy.
I don't pay for PPVs. Particularly when I can watch them from the local pub or on a link.

Broner v Manny, what"s thepoint? Manny will be forty when the fight takes place and his best days are long gone. Broner was at one stage a very good fighter, he is only twentynine, but I also believe his best days are long gone. I assume that both will get adecent payday, but in World boxing the fight means nothing. Regards Mervyn The Gee

You may be right in saying that in world boxing the fight means nothing but to the paying fans who want to watch the fights then surely the fight is virtually everything, yeah? I, for one, will be watching this, good matchup.

Broner looked massive at the press conferance, Pacquaio looked like he could step in the ring now!!!

I find it a tough fight to call though tbh, it really depends on what Pacquiao and Broner turn up... Im not expecting a prime Pacquaio at his age but I think even the 2018 version of Manny that beat Matthysse could be a static, poor Broner...

The size disparity was obvious. Broner was wearing a fat T shirt that's for sure.
