Lucas Matthysse: I lost to a great legend

BY THE NUMBERS Manny Pacquiao�s first KO win in 9 years Pacquiao-Matthysse match on GMA 7 today
Rita Gibson | 15 July, 2018, 11:56

Manny Pacquiao scored his first knockout win, and the 60th overall of his illustrious career on Sunday afternoon in Malaysia by stopping Lucas Matthysse in the seventh round.

"Not because he can not win or lose, but I'd like to see my friend rest on his laurels at this time and enjoy life".

This shake up shocked the boxing world because nobody could have imagined Pacquiao would leave Freddie Roach or Bob Arum at such a late stage in his career.

The 35-year-old had no answer to the speed of Pacquiao and went down again in the fith, before a right-left combination finished him off two rounds later. "He's a great fighter".

After weeks of speculation, Pacquiao and Matthysse were introduced by famed ring announcer Michael Buffer and both fighters stepped in the scales and both made the welterweight weight limit of 147 pounds.

"I would like to congratulate Senator Manny Pacquiao for giving us pride and bringing the Filipino nation together once more", Duterte said.

"I knocked him down and that's a bonus for being patient in the fight, and working hard in training".

He swiftly followed up with a barrage of powerful swinging punches that forced the referee to step in after 2min 38sec of round nine. "You win some, you lose some", Matthysse said. "When I saw Manny's story, coming from the streets, I thought one day I could be like that and this is the first step to that dream", he said.

Carlos Canizares of Venezuela (20-0-1, 16 KOs) puts his WBA light flyweight title and unbeaten record on the line against Chinese rookie Lu Bin (1-0, 1 KO), who could become the first boxer in history to win a world title in his second professional fight.
