Manny Pacquiao vs Lucas Matthysse Preview

Manny pacuyao is back. The living legend from the Philippines dates back to the ring on Saturday evening, with its eight-star former champion, Lucas Matise, in Malaysia in a match that can be considered the last stand of Bachman.

Date: Saturday, July 14
Time: 9 p.m. ET
Location: Axiata Arena -- Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Stream: ESPN+

Bakoyao (59-7-2) will advance to the ring for the first time in over a year, and all the boxing fans certainly remember what happened the last time he competed. In Australia last July, Pacquiao was at the wrong end of a controversial decision to Jeff Horn, where he lost his heavyweight title in the WBO tournament in the process. Horn will lose that tournament to Terrence Crawford last month just across TKO.

The rival of the Philippine legend on Saturday is the champions of Matthysse. The task of handing over Bakuyau for his second defeat, respectively, will be the first time he defended his last-won title in January, when he overcame tea karram with a knockout in the eighth round.
