Manny Pacquiao Announces He's Fighting Adrien Broner Next

Manny Pacquiao says his next fight will be against former world champion Adrien Broner.

It's been widely reported that the Filipino fighter has signed with Al Haymon and looks poised to return to the squared circle in a big way, with the potential for a rematch with Floyd Mayweather after this bout with Broner - which is likely to take place in Las Vegas.

According to, Pacquiao revealed the news when he was introduced as the latest ambassador of International Sports Promotion Society at Makati Shangrila Hotel.

"Broner, Adrien Broner," Pacquiao told when asked who he's going to fight next.

"I think either January 12 or 19."

Broner has already responded with a few words for Pacquiao on Instagram:

Are you looking forward to seeing the two slug it out? Who comes out on top?
