Manny Pacquiao, Adrien Broner make grand arrival in Las Vegas for fight week

LAS VEGAS—Two of boxing biggest stars kicked off fight week in style on Tuesday as eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao and four-division world champion Adrien Broner arrived at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Tuesday for this Saturday’s welterweight blockbuster main event.


The Filipino senator is determined to prove he has some gas left in the tank as he returns to defend the WBA Welterweight World Championship in his first fight on U.S. soil in more than two years in a must-see match up against the controversial Broner.

The American boxer, meanwhile, is setting out to earn his first victory since a split decision win in February of 2017 followed by a disappointing unanimous decision loss to Mikey Garcia in July 2017 and a majority draw last April against Jesse Vargas.
