In my ongoing series, I have been picking opponents I'd like to see Manny Pacquiao face off against. So far, I've picked Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin and Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez as two possible candidates for Pacman. Now those are two very tough fighters and worthy challenges, but it got me to thinking, if Floyd Mayweather Jr. is going the easy route in his next fight vs. Andre Berto, then maybe a simpler challenge for Pacquiao is also due. Today I offer, Manny Pacquiao vs. Adrien 'The Problem' Broner, because I believe the Pacman would have no "Problem" gobbling him up.
Now perhaps it should be noted that Broner may not be the best suited for earning a shot at Pacquiao. He has lost to Marcos Maidana and Shawn Porter in recent times. His loud mouth antics outside of the ring serve only to make him look foolish. Still, he'd make for an interesting fight and an easy picking for Pacquiao. This would be a Pay-per-view event, but only because the name Pacman was on the ticket.
Broner would come to fight, but it would only play into Pacquiao's style. If Broner won, if he somehow managed to pull off the upset, it would fix his career overnight. Broner would be back on top and then could continue beating on his chest as he use to, that he was indeed the heir apparent to Floyd Mayweather Jr's throne.
Most likely though, Broner would lose. Pacquiao would either knock him out or win a comfortable unanimous decision. In losing, Broner would still be able to carry on his career and still manage some decent pay days. The consolation in losing would be more exposure and a hefty pay day. Not only could Broner continue with his career, but he'd have a lot more money to help feed his kids. (It has been reported that Broner has 7 babies from 6 different baby mommas! READ: Adrien Broner has 7 babies with 6 different Baby Mamas - Report).
A win for Pacquiao, although an easy fight, would still look good on Pacquiao's record. It wouldn't be as epic or as hard as say a fight vs. Golovkin or Canelo, but it still would interest the fans - it's a more interesting match-up than Mayweather vs. Berto!
Tomorrow, I'll have another fight in which I think would be great for Pacquiao.
Why stop with just this!?
