Pacquiao a 2:1 favorite to dethrone Matthysse

39-year-old ring legend Manny Pacquiao is a 2:1 favorite to dethrone WBA welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse on Saturday night at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Pacman (59-7-2, 38 KOs) has parted ways with Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach and now is trained by longtime assistant trainer Buboy Fernandez. His company MP Promotions is promoting the card.

Matthysse (39-4, 36 KOs) and his team already arrived in Malaysia last week to get acclimated to the time and humidity.

The Pacquiao-Matthysse bout will only be available in the United States by live stream on ESPN+.

However, ESPN will be televising boxing Saturday night. The network presents WBC interim super lightweight champion Regis Prograis (21-0, 18 KOs) versus Juan Jose Velasco (20-0, 12 KOs) before the Pacquiao-Matthysse stream.
