After his controversial defeat to Jeff Horn in July 2017, Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao will once again step into the ring in Kuala Lumpur. Not ready to hang up his gloves yet, the former WBO Welterweight champion will face Argentinian boxer Lucas Matthysse for the WBA Welterweight Championship in the capital city of Malaysia in mid-July.
But the 39-year-old boxer will have his work cu tout for him against the younger Matthysse. The defending champ has already notched up an impressive record of 36 knockouts in his 39 victories of his professional career. Pacquiao though has the talent to get it done and despite dividing his time with his senatorial duties in Philippines, is still considered one of the world’s best fighters.
