Mathysse is much stronger and better than Jeff Horn by comparisson both have similarities in fighting style. Their aggressiveness both are locomotive moving forward guns blazing heavy puncher, Mathysse has better defense, both similar strenght and stamina. While no matter how much Manny would train in this fight his best may peak 80-85% of what was once a great Pacman, less punching power, slower, 90 % gas on tank. Pacman needs to be 85-90% but that would be close to impossible considering the damages and wear and tear from many wars fought in the ring, for more 2 decades. It is true Manny is slowing down but if he can hire Marquez conditioning coach Heredia if I'm not mistaken there's a big chance to KO Mathysse in early rounds. This is a very critical fight too risky for the health of Manny at his age Mathysse is a very hard hitter if he get caught by those punches in the head even if not direct hit the nerves might not hold and pain is numbing intense is dangerous.
Just go back to those times hitting strings in trainning its helpful, don't force it or overdo it wont work anymore, weight trainning helps a lot at your age, left some weights like JMM in the last fight build those muscles but lean Heredia is expert on this area. If you lose some speed at least gain some strenght. Try not to engage toe to toe in early rounds your still faster than Mathysse just move around pick your angles hope for open cuts. You can do it!

A very close decision is the only way for Pacquiao to win...

The fight will be held in Malaysia. I think Matthysse is sold out on this fight but he won't knock out. This is all business.

Jeff Horn was better than Lucas at dirty tactics, and Pacman has always been prone to fits against dirty fighting. Horn is also bigger and stronger than Lucas, so he was able to use his tactics on Pacman.

Anyway, we shall see.

Jeff Horn can use tricks and has an awkward style he's more physical and more unpredictable. Matthysse is more predictable but hits harder than Horn but given Pacquiao's age Matthysse will really push him to a brawl and he can also box. One strong punch from Matthysse can end this bout quickly.

Technically Pacquiao still has the edge, Mathysse is hoping to land a KO punch , his only chance

Pacquiao by UD if Mathysse failed to KO Pacman :lol:

Pacquiao is fighting for money, looks like he's in dire straits to gamble his life on this fight. He's in for a beating.
