    Default Pacquiao vs Matthysse

    It’s official for July I believe. Decent fight. I think that Pacquiao is too old at this point and too inactive. Sure Matthysse has come back from a long layoff too, but he is a bit less battle worn and at this age, I don’t think that Pacquiao will be able to take a punch that well.

    Seems Pacquiao is thinking about having Buboy fat boy training him instead of Roach. That’s a shit idea if I ever heard one.

    This is going to be a shoot out, someone is going to get stopped.

    This is an exciting fight and pleasently suprised.

    Ah I heard that he had binned Roach but I thought I had dreamt it.

    I'll watch it but I've not got much interest in it, certainly not a fight I'll be staying up until 6am to watch

    So Pacquiao sans Roach vs Matthysse......does this strike anyone else as a colossally stupid idea?


    Matthysse is no longer a spring chicken but he's dangerous enough for Pacquiao at this point in his career. I mean yeah Matthysse got stopped by Postol who isn't the hardest puncher but still I'm of the opinion Pac should hang up the gloves he's got nothing left to prove and there's very few fights for him where I'm genuinely interested in the outcome...if Matthysse sparks him out cold I wouldn't be shocked by it I wouldn't be shocked if Pac sparks Matthysse either.


    Are there any fights out there for Pacquiao that NON-Pacquiao fans would be interested or excited about seeing?

    Enjoy Pacman while you can. The first guy to win 4 world titles in the original weight divisions (fly, feather, light, and welterweight). A phenomenal achievement..... watching him batter much bigger guys was truly astonishing. He was the premier fighter in the sport for a while too. Never belittled opponents, never trash talked and always had a smile on his face.

    One of the true greats ..... let's hope that it's not a fight to far for him.

    No way.

    Manny was irresistible over that period and Floyd got so intimidated by Pac Man that he did not fight him.

    Who could Pacquiao fight right now that would interest you @Master?

    For me, it would have to be one of the Americans like Spence, Thurman, Garcia, or Porter.

    I don't think a rematch vs Horn does much for me, it would probably be big again int he Pacific but meh it doesn't excite me. The fight vs Matthysse doesn't excite me either. I wonder if Pac sees a James Toney-esque fall off from not having Roach in his corner.

    The Matthysse fight is exciting.

    Manny may not be at the level to beat the top welterweights. Horn is his level.

    I just don’t think that Pacquiao has it anymore and Matthysse is really dangerous

    Matthysse looked spent last time. I think Pac still has enough to beat him.

    I think it would be better for pacman to retire although it has peaked my interest and I will watch it. It's always nice having a PAC fight anyone hear from my old friend @pacfan he was caught up in the unrest in the Philippines. Last I talked to him was right before the Horn fight

    Even though they're both semi-shot it's an exciting matchup, both looked poor last time, both obviously past it but could be a thriller, both could be floored, certainly hurt and each could flatten the other. Almost a bit of a sicko fight at this stage of their careers.
