“When he says, ‘I’m doing it for the hood,’ this is everybody. He’s got us on his back,” says Ross.
Broner, an experienced and talented former four-division world champion himself, says he is as focused as he’s ever been.
“The music, the clubs, the scenery, it’s all going to be there after this is over with”, says Broner. “It ain’t no room to do nothing but what AB wants to do and what AB is gonna do, and that’s get the win.”
Eight-division world champion and Senator Manny Pacquiao shows his commitment to giving back to the Philippine people in this exclusive clip from Episode 1 of ALL ACCESS: PACQUIAO VS. BRONER. The three-part documentary series premieres this Friday at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME and chronicles the buildup to Pacquiao’s first fight in the United States in more than two years.
“Giving back is so important because I’ve been there,” Pacquiao explains of his tradition of donating money to his fellow-Filipinos before morning runs through the streets of Manila. “I feel what they feel. Whatever success I accomplish and how much money I earn, I will never forget that feeling.
“I’ve been doing everything that we can do to help the poor people. I share with them what I receive from God. I give them shelter, give them free education. I have a chance to help the people and I have a chance to make them happy. You cannot solve all of the problems here in the Philippines, but at least there’s a reduction of less fortunate families. And that’s my goal.”
Adrien Broner reveals that he was sitting in a jail cell awaiting trial when he decided that, if released, he would dedicate his life to boxing. Watch this exclusive clip from the three-part series ALL ACCESS: PACQUIAO VS. BRONER
