Matthysse talks about loss to Pacquiao


WBA regular welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse (39-5, 36 KOs) was trying to make sense of his 7th round blowout loss to Manny Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KOs) last Saturday night.

The fight took place at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Due to the fight being streamed on ESPN+, a lot of boxing fans chose not to pay the $5 to watch it. The fans weren’t intrigued enough by the match-up for them to want to pay the $5 to see it.

Matthysse looked horrible throughout the fight. Pacquiao landed a big shot in the 7th that knocked Matthysse down for the third and final time. Matthysse looked like he didn’t want any more after that knockdown. He’d already been dropped twice earlier in the fight.

“He’s a great fighter and a great champion,” Matthysse said after the fight. “It was turned around — sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Today was my turn to lose. But I lost to a great fighter and great legend in Manny Pacquiao.”
