Pacquiao, the challenger, expressed his elation as his MP Promotions company has completed preparations for the two-city press conference and media tour ending in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on April 20.

Dubbed "Fight of Champions," the mega-fight will usher in Pacquiao's debut as a fight promoter at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur featuring three other world title fights in the undercard.

"It is all systems go for the Pacquiao Vs Matthysse fight," said Pacquiao, who is hoping to equal if not surpass the expectations leading to the grandiose Muhammad Ali-Joe Bugner fight which was also held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in July 1975.

"We have assembled the biggest fight card Malaysia has been waiting for in the last 43 years since Ali-Bugner," added Pacquiao.

Matthysse, the dangerous 36-year-old champion from Argentina who tallied 36 knockouts out of his 39 wins, and against only four losses, has started training with Joel Diaz. Diaz also trained Timothy Bradley, whom Pacquiao has faced thrice in the past.

[QUOTE=Boxing Logic;18789993]Damn he still looks strong even at this age. Be careful Lomachenko, be careful. Pacquiao has lost a TON of stamina, and a good deal of speed, but he can still punch, and he's a lot bigger than Loma.…
