Pacquiao, who turns 40 in December, gets one more shot at bringing a spotlight on Saturday night when he heads to Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to battle Lucas Matthysse (39-4, 36 KOs) for the WBA’s regular welterweight title on ESPN+ after issues and missed deadlines kept it from being on PPV.
What isn’t easy to determine on the surface is whether the 35-year-old Matthysse, the beloved Argentine brawler, represents simply an equally faded big name for Pacquaio to outbox or the potential for something worse — anything from a “trap” opponent to someone capable due to his power of sending “PacMan” unwillingly into retirement.
Although many observers felt Pacquiao (59-7-2) had done enough to defeat Horn despite losing his WBO welterweight title as controversial as he did, there was little question Pacquiao had visibly lost a larger chunk of speed and explosion from his swarming prime. But was it a case of getting old over night for Pacquiao, or simply an awkward style from a hungry opponent who was taken too lightly?
