Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao might be coming to the final stage of his career but judging from his training footage over the last number of weeks, he’s not done just yet.
Sure, he’s not the Pacquiao of old but even if he’s still 75% of a prime Manny Pacquiao, that is more than enough to still give trouble to some of the top welterweights out there.
His next opponent Lucas Matthysse is known for his brick-like knockout fists and has gone on record with his coach saying that they are going for the stoppage against Pacquiao in the fight.
Pacquiao looks noticeably less bulky in this camp in comparison to some of his fights in previous years, possibly a sign that he is coming in-built for speed and to box and move against Matthysse.
Ahead of the bout Pacquiao has brought out the following promo video today:
The fight is set for July 15th in Malaysia and will be shown in the US via ESPN through Pacquiao’s promoter Top Rank.
