Boxing: Pacquiao arrives in Los Angeles ahead of Broner bout
Manny Pacquiao arrives in Los Angeles three weeks before his WBA (Regular) World Championship bout against Adrien Broner in January.

Eight-division world champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao has arrived in Los Angeles with less than a month to go before his scheduled WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Championship bout against Adrien Broner. 

Pacquiao, who turned 40 earlier this month, will be making his US boxing return after a two-year hiatus on January 19th in Las Vegas, where he will be making his first defense of the WBA title against Broner. 

Pacquiao will likely resume training at the world-famous Wild Card Boxing Gym in Los Angeles, after patching things up with long-time mentor Freddie Roach. 

Roach, who worked with Pacquiao for the better part of 16 years, was absent during Pacquiao's WBA title-clinching win over Argentinian Lucas Matthysse in Malaysia last July. 

The two sides have since reconnected and have confirmed that they will be working together for the upcoming Broner fight.
