The eight-division champion, Pacquio (59-7-2 win-loss-draw record) hopes to snatch the WBA "regular" welterweight belt from current titleholder Matthysse (39-4-1).


The 39-year-old Pinoy boxer, coming from a very sorry lost against Aussie Jeff Horn in 2017 announced that he’s not done fighting yet and has few more years left in his tank. He admitted however, that the fight result against 35-year-old Matthysse can bring him to contemplation.

After 16 years of working together, this will be the first time that Pacman will be fighting without his great mentor Freddie Roach. Manny will be relying heavily on his long-time buddy and Roach’s assistant, Buboy Fernandez.
