'Underdog' Pacquiao announces Mattysse fight in June

Manny Pacquiao 'Underdog' Pacquiao announces Mattysse fight in June
Patty Aguilar | 09 March, 2018, 19:25

Manny Pacquiao announced a world title fight against Argentina's Lucas Matthysse in Malaysia, but doubts quickly emerged over the self-promoted bout on Friday.

Eric Gomez, Golden Boy Promotions president, admitted that Pacquiao's adviser Michael Koncz had contacted him about a possible Pacquiao-Matthysse fight.

"This is going to be a tough fight". In addition to saying he would fight Matthysse, Pacquiao also announced a kickoff news conference for March 22 in Kuala Lumpur with subsequent promotional news conferences throughout Asia, such as in Beijing, Tokyo, Macau and Hong Kong. But I'm excited to fight and be a world champion again.

Pacquiao, who has won world titles in an unprecedented eight weight divisions, previously said he was eyeing an April date with Ukraine's World Boxing Organization superfeatherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko during a break from his senatorial duties. Pacquiao was supposed to fight Horn last November in a rematch, but Pacquiao withdrew from the fight after he revealed that his work schedule as a senator in the Philippines prevented Pacquiao from fully dedicating his time to train for the fight.

"The Malaysia part is up in the air".

However, Arum added that until that happens he won't be "booking my flight to Malaysia". If they put up the money, it'll happen, happily.

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum had branded the Dubai offer as a mirage and the Top Rank chief was right on the money when it turned out that the Arab group could not come up with an advance payment.

Press reports said the Pacquiao camp considered the offer an "insult".

Matthysse totes a ring record of 39 wins and four losses with 36 knockouts as against Pacquiaos 59 wins, seven losses and two draws with 39 knockouts. That's what I want, to entertain the boxing fans.

The Filipino's trainer Restituto Fernandez said he expects the contest, if they finalized it, to be "a real brawl because Matthysse is an aggressive fighter".

Pacquiao hasn't fought since last July when he lost his WBO title to Australia's Jeff Horn on a controversial points decision.
