Manny won't last 12 rounds - Matthysse

Manny Philippine boxing icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao faces welterweight world title holder Lucas Matthysse
Sandra Phillips | 21 April, 2018, 06:14

The Pacquiao-Matthysse slugfest, dubbed Fight of Champions, will be the first big-time boxing show that will be held here since the 1975 heavyweight duel starring Muhammad Ali against Joe Bugner.

The showdown is Matthysse's first title defence since claiming the vacant World Boxing Association's welterweight title in January this year via knockout against Tewa Kiram.

The Kuala Lumpur bout will likely mark the first time in 15 years that Pacquiao will be fighting without his long-standing USA trainer Freddie Roach, who expressed hurt last week after saying ties have been cut.

"Definitely this is not my last fight", he said.

His fight against Matthysse is his first promotion under his own firm. "I want my last fight to be in the Philippines, but I still have a couple more fights till I retire".

Pacquiao and Matthysse were in Kuala Lumpur at a press conference earlier today to announce their fight.

They also have received help from Indivisible , a left-leaning nonprofit based in Washington that helps boost grassroots activism. In Littleton, some survivors of the Parkland shooting joined Columbine students for a vigil and rally Thursday evening.

At the press conference Pacquiao said that his time in boxing is far from over and that he can easily fight and promote at this stage in his career.

"I want to fight throughout other parts of Asia as well, primarily China, Korea, Japan, Indonesia and Thailand".

Yesterday, Thursday, Team Pacquiao and Team Matthysse were holed up the whole day at RS Video studio in Paranaque City to produce their promotional videos including one on one question and answer faceoff by Pacquiao and Matthysse hosted by veteran Filipino sports journalist Quinito Henson.

The Kuala Lumpur bout will likely mark the first time in 15 years that Pacquiao will be fighting without his long-standing U.S. trainer Freddie Roach, who expressed hurt last week after saying ties have been cut.

"If we can't be successful here and have a good showing, how can we convince Lomachenko to fight us?"

Lomachenko though, is not so sure a win over Pacquiao will do much for his career as critics will put down the victory. There are many champions in my weight division, and I'm going to continue my career in this direction. "He's an inspiration and its truly an honour to fight him", he said. "If I could have the chance to finish it right away, I'll finish it".
