FIGHT SPORTS is bringing you live coverage of Manny Pacquiao vs. Adrien Broner for the WBA welterweight title.

Pacquiao returns to defend his WBA title in his first fight on USA soil in more than two years against must-see attraction Adrien Broner - live Saturday, January 19 at 9PM ET/6PM PT on SHOWTIME PPV.

Referee Russell Mora warned Broner (33-4-1, 24 KOs), 29, of Cincinnati, for sticking his elbow across Pacquiao's face in the second round. "The Manny Pacquiao journey will still continue".

"I controlled the fight, he was missing and I hit him clean more times". Pacquiao is at -280, up from -250 when the fight was first announced in November of previous year.

The champion had a massive seventh round as he landed a couple of left hands that stunned Broner. At the conclusion of the pay-per-view bout, all three judges heavily favored Pacquiao; they had it 117-111 and 116-112 (twice). Pacquiao was a lean 146 pounds while Broner was a trim 146.5 at the official weigh-in held at the same venue of their bout.

Kyrie Irving: Young Celtics have 'a lot of learning to do'
If the team decides to trade Terry Rozier for nothing more than draft picks, then a spot would open there. Kyrie Irving apologized to LeBron James after the Celtics' loss to the Magic on Saturday.

Only time will tell if the fight indeed would come to fruition at some point in future, but, as things stand, Pacquiao seems more than ready to square off against Mayweather one final time before hanging up the gloves. I am willing to fight again if he is willing to come back in boxing'.

Broner yet again proved to be far more talk than action, as he spent much of the fight circling and didn't seem all that interested in engaging. He just had no answers for anything Pacquiao threw at him.

When the final bell sounded late Saturday night, Adrien Broner jumped on the ropes and engaged the crowd. Here's everything you need to know.

With Floyd Mayweather watching ringside as talk intensifies over a rematch with Pacquiao, the "Pac-Man" as he is commonly known had the crowd on their feet with a dominant win as he rolled back the years against an overwhelmed Broner.

Pacquiao eased off in the eighth but peaked again in the ninth.
