Here we go, boxing fans!

Good morning! Not long now until Manny Pacquiao gets in the ring in Las Vegas for the first defence of his WBA welterweight title against Adrien Broner.

Pacquiao, who celebrated his 40th birthday last month with a lavish party in the Philippines, will defend his World Boxing Association regular welterweight crown against Broner at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in what will be his first Las Vegas bout for more than two years.

His stoppage of the Argentinian paved the way for the showdown with 29-year-old Broner, who boasts of a 33-win record, with 24 knockouts and only three losses.

The fight takes place on Saturday, January 19 with fans in the United Kingdom having to wait up until the early hours of Sunday morning to watch the action. Here's everything you need to know.

The Pacquiao vs. Broner main card will begin at 9:00 p.m. ET on Showtime pay-per-view.

Badou Jack battles Marcus Browne for the WBA Interim Light Heavyweight Championship; Rau'Shee Warren takes on Nordine Oubaali for the WBC Bantamweight Championship; and Jhack Tepora squares off against Hugo Ruiz.

The victor of the bout could potentially set to earn the richest purse in boxing history as sponsors, match makers, network outfits, including those in pay per view, would certainly line up to get a piece in probably the most important bout in boxing. As a member of PBC, Pacquiao has a number of potential big welterweight fights to have, but those fights can't happen unless he is victorious against Broner, a former champion who is looking for his career-defining win.

Streaming options: You can stream the fight on a mobile or home device using the Showtime App. If you begin to stream the fight on a second device, the first stream will automatically stop in the first device.
