Pacquiao’s motivation for the fight is to remind fans and critics alike he’s still nasty in the ring.
Speaking at a press conference in New York, Pacquiao said: “I want to entertain people and give a good show on 19 January … I want to fight the greatest fighters and greatest opponents in the world and one of them is Adrien Broner.” (The Guardian)
