PACQUIAO-BRONER FINAL PRESS CONFERENCE
FRANK GONZALEZ JR
WBA welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao and Adrien “The Problem” Broner went face-to-face Wednesday in Las Vegas at the final press conference before their PPV clash Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
“I don’t need to dislike my opponent to want a knockout. I’m just doing my job in the ring. If the knockout comes, it comes. We’re hoping to have that opportunity Saturday. I have to pressure him to make him open up. Wherever he goes, I’ll be there.”
"I’m going to beat him up and have a drink with him afterward. I grew up in boxing and I know what’s going on. It’s a business, but don’t get it twisted, I’m going to dominate and win".
