Manny Pacquiao vs Adrien Broner: Four titles will be on the line for the four-fight pay-per-view boxing card presented by Showtime on Saturday.

For the vacant WBC world bantamweight championship, Rau’shee Warren (16-2) will face Nordine Oubaali (14-0). Fan favorite Badou Jack (22-1-3) will face Marcus Browne (22-0) for the vacant WBC silver light heavyweight belt. The card will open with a bout between Jhack Tepora (22-0) and Hugo Ruiz (38-4) for the interim WBA featherweight title.
There will be a five-fight undercard that will not be aired as part of the preview, but there are some notables on it, including George Kambosos Jr., Rey Perez and more.
Pacquiao has won three of his past five bouts dating back to his May 2015 loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr., and is coming off a seventh-round TKO victory over Lucas Matthysse. Jeff Horn bested him prior to that, in a very narrow decision victory.
Broner is coming off a loss to Mikey Garcia and a draw against Jessie Vargas. Prior to that, he had won six of his past seven bouts, and sorely needs a win to stay in the upper echelon of boxing at this stage of his career.
