We all know that Pacquiao and Matthysse are both at the twilight of their careers. Although it is given that both of them possess the power to end the fight, their clash might not play out as an all-out brawl with each fighter trying to go wild to knock each others' heads off.

From what I've seen from Matthysse, he won't try to fight as aggressive as he usually does. This is mainly because of his trainer, Joel Diaz who really believes that he knows Pacquiao's weaknesses. Afterall, his former ward, Timothy Bradley Jr., survived his first encounter against Pacquiao back in the days when Pacquiao was younger and was on a roll in his quest to knock bigger men out of the competition. Simply put, Joel Diaz trained Matthysse to fight smarter in order to maximize their chances of catching Pacquiao with that humongous right hand similar to Marquez' that shut Pacquiao's lights off. They will bank heavily on that punch. They will fight defensively and patiently, creating enough distance to control Pacquiao's movement while also giving enough time for Matthysse to react quick enough to unload that right hand counter punch. Again, this is what I observed on their training camp.

Pacquiao on the other hand looks a lot fresher and sharper given the adjustments that they made during this training camp. I've been following him since 1997 and I've never seen him as fresh as he is now. His speed and conditioning now is comparable to when he fought Joshua Clottey where he threw over a thousand punches. I honestly see Pacquiao landing flashy punches early due to Matthysse being a slow starter. With Pacquiao's conditioning now, we will see his power and speed back in full throttle. Regarding their gameplan, it is simply to out-maneuver Matthysse who is slower on his feet and punches. They will also counter Matthysse as he leans forward whenever he unleashes his punches, specifically his right cross to the body. The will fight Matthysse with speed and Pacquiao might try to be the aggressor when he sees that he could offset Matthysse's timing and take away his leverage by moving side to side before he throws his combinations. No doubt, Pacquiao can beat Matthysse into the punch.


Final verdict: Pacquiao can end this fight by a knock out. I believe there will be an early knockdown in Round 1 courtesy of Pacquiao sending Matthysse to the canvass. Pacquiao will then proceed to finishing the fight in Round 4.

Apparently, Paclanders are focused more with PDu30 and other political issues than boxing nowadays even if Pacquiao has a fight... Very disappointing... :(

Manny's right cross will play a huge part in this fight.
it will be the starting point to launch a vicious attack.

It didn't come as early as what I thought but it played perfectly the way I thought it would. I was expecting Matthysse would come out a little tougher than what he showed tonight but I guess, everything he had was immediately nullified when he got countered as he threw his punches early on. Joel Diaz is the one to blame for his performance. He turned Matthysse into a fighter he's not comfortable at being. They should have just fought aggressively instead of making him fight a fight that made him lose his assets. Time to retire for Matthysse and one last fight left for Pacquiao.
