Adrien Broner: After This Victory, I Will Take Over Boxing

Pacquiao, of course, is already a legend, being the only eight-division world champion in history and ranked among the best pound-for-pound fighters of all time.

This is how Fortune, a former Australian heavyweight boxer who runs a gym bearing his name here and serves as Pacquiao's strength and conditioning coach, sees the outcome of Pacquiao-Broner. "I'm coming to take the throne from Pacquiao".

During the lead-up to the fight with Broner, Pacquiao has talked about how much he enjoyed getting a knockout after such a long drought and that he is aiming for another one against Broner.

The Filipino six-weight world champion has vied for a rematch ever since, though he claims all his attention is now on beating Mayweather's former close friend Broner.

After Pacquiao got off the call, Adrien Broner got on and took questions from the press.

"I feel like he can't beat me", said Broner, who is 6-0 with five knockouts against southpaws. Floyd Mayweather once got a shot blocked by one of the girls from Wild'n Out in a celebrity basketball game and stopped playing to complain to the refs about it, while Manny Pacquiao essentially paid a Filipino team to let him play with them. Though Spence and Thurman and Porter are in their physical primes, the stories of a fight between any of those guys and Pacquiao just isn't as rich as the history between Floyd and Manny. The 40-year-old looks to be in great shape heading into next weekend.

Roach said: "Floyd put himself on TV for a reason".

"We've only discussed up until Monday right now", Roach told Sporting News.

Pacquiao will end his two-year hiatus from a USA boxing ring when he returns to Las Vegas to defend his World Boxing Association Welterweight World Title against Broner. Tuesday and Thursday we haven't really talked about it or decided anything yet.

Khan-Crawford Looking Extremely Likely for April 20 While not officially signed, Amir Khan and Terence Crawford are apparently going to be fighting in New York City on April 20, with promoter Bob Arum hoping to announce the fight next week. "We do have a gym we're gonna go to".

Roach returned to Pacquiao's camp officially as a consultant after Pacquiao went with Buboy Fernandez as head trainer for the Matthysse fight.

The knockout was Pacquiao's first in nine years and 14 fights since he won his first welterweight belt by stopping Miguel Cotto in the 12th round in 2009. "I'm ready physically, mentally and emotionally", said Broner during a recent interview with Fighthype.com. Manny Pacquiao kind of refuses to do that. "You can ask me again after this one", Pacquiao said Thursday.
