Can Pacquiao hit back in his latest fight?

If sport has taught us anything it’s that you should never write off a great. Boxer Manny Pacquiao definitely falls into the “great” category, and he’s back on BoxNation this month to prove to the world that he’s still the top dog.

 

Following his shock defeat to Australian Jeff Horn 12 months ago, plenty of questions have been asked about the 39-year-old’s ability to cut it on the big stage. But Pacquiao now has the perfect chance to make his detractors eat an almighty slice of humble pie by defeating Lucas Matthysse for the WBA welterweight title in Kuala Lumpur.


But a huge challenge lies ahead in the form of the explosive Argentinian. Reigning champ Matthysse has won 36 of his 39 career wins by knockout and is considered one of the most aggressive punchers out there.

 

Matthysse’s last bout saw him flatten Tewa Kiram in eight rounds to get his hands on the WBA welterweight belt, and the 35-year-old now has the opportunity to etch his name into the history books by seeing off Pacquiao in one of the most explosive showdowns of 2018.

 

Is Matthysse ready to claim the scalp of one of boxing’s best, or will Pacquiao prove that he’s not done just yet? Tune into BoxNation on Saturday 14 July to discover the answer.
