Manny Pacquiao is Sharpening Up His Defense For Matthysse

Eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao (59-7-2, 38 KOs) is using his last two days of camp as the perfect opportunity to sharpen up his defense.

On July 15th [July 14 in the United States], Pacquiao will challenge WBA "regular" welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse (39-4, 36 KOs).

The contest takes place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. On Saturday it was officially announced that ESPN's pay for stream service will carry the contest in the United States.


Many fans watched and supported Pacquiao on his training on Saturday, where he did five rounds of sparring against Jheritz Chavez and undefeated Australian boxer George Kambosos Jr.

He also had his mitts training and regular gym workout.

"I'm very satisfied with the result of our training, our conditioning, we're all satisfied with our good performance and what we did in training. We put in a lot of effort.... we did more combinations, head movement, just building up what we've always done," Pacquiao said to GMA News.

This is Pacquiao's first fight where his own promotional company, MP Promotions, is handling the entire event.

But the fighting Senator reassured everyone that everything is "under control and well-managed"

"It's not easy, you have a lot to deal with, but everything is under control, well-managed, because the people that I get are trustworthy people, and I've got them here in Malaysia, here in the Philippines," Pacquiao said.

When asked about the possibility of his plan to pursue his dream of having his last fight in the Philippines, he said, "Yes, it's possible to get it here, let's just say that's the plan."

Pacquiao will have his last training day on Monday, before flying out to Kuala Lumpur for the Matthysse fight.

The contest will be the first for Pacquiao since July 2017, when he lost a controversial twelve round unanimous decision to Jeff Horn at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.

[QUOTE=Dr.Cool;18926314]Nope, you see, when there is no testing, no one fails a test for peds. And if no one fails a test, that means no one took any peds. Just ask WesternLoser, he will tell you. Canelo took tests and…
