Pacquiao said on Wednesday that he was looking at one fight at a time and has no plans to fight Mayweather again. "I don't listen to any gossip about Adrien Broner, I just focus on my training", Pacquiao said. Right now I'm 100% focused on the fight.

There has been speculation about a Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch ever since the American scored a unanimous decision in their 2015 bout that was dubbed "The Fight of the Century" but never lived up to its billing.

However Pacquiao told reporters on Wednesday he had put any future political aspirations on hold as he prepares to defend his World Boxing Association regular welterweight title against Adrien Broner on January 19 in Las Vegas.

Punters can get 12/5 for the challenger to upset Pac Man and that is tempting enough to get the nod as our main Pacquiao vs Broner prediction. Hes got us on his back, ” says Ross. Nevertheless, reports coming from the Pacquiao camp indicate that the champion remains to be fast and strong leaving the burden to prove that youth is an advantage to Broner.

Michael Rapaport - I think Broner's best days are behind him.

U.S. shutdown stokes air safety fears
The FAA suspended training and limited safety efforts to "urgent continued operational activity to protect life and property". TSA hasn't heard of any other airport planning to shut an entire concourse like the one in Miami , Bilello said.

Broner looked set for big things when improving his record to 27-0 by beating Paul Malignaggi on points to claim this title, having previously been a world champion at two lighter weights. There are many older fighters who have won matches through craftiness and well implemented strategies. It's amusing to me Mayweather would be there on that night in particular unless he's trying to see what kind of interest there is in another fight after the first one was so uninspiring.

For his knockout win over Lucas Matthysse, Pacquiao said he only trained once the week of the actual fight, slowing down so that he had more strength on fight night. "I want that one more time".

Pacquiao added: "I'm not thinking about Floyd Mayweather, my plan is one [fight] at a time". Although big name fighters like Vladimir Klitsko, Bernard Hopkins and Roy Jones successfully fought over the age of 40, they are the exception. When asked if he would implement a similar schedule next week in Las Vegas now that he's back in the fold, Roach said he hasn't thought that far ahead. "I'm ready physically, mentally and emotionally", said Broner during a recent interview with Fighthype.com. "But Pacquiao just turned 40 years old [last month, ] so a lot depends on how much of his legs Pacquiao has left".

Fernandez had his baptism of fire as chief trainer previous year when Pacquiao overpowered Lucas Matthysse of Argentina to win the WBA 147-lb title in Malaysia when Hall of Famer Freddie Roach didn't get a call-up.
