Looks like it'll take place in Malaysia on ESPN! I'm here for it! 

 

Lucas looked like shit in his last fight, but I'm sure he'll get in the best shape possible for this one. Who wouldn't?

Pac by early stoppage. Matthyse looked too listless in his last bout for me to give him a shot.

I'll give Matthysse a shot. He can still crack. We all know that Manny got put to sleep with that 1-hitter by Marquez. The question is can Lucas deal with Manny's movement, unorthodox style and speed? I'll take Manny by UD.

I'll go with Matthysse unless Pacquiao legitimately looks good in training camp. Both fighters have been on a clear decline, but Pacquiao's decline looked worse.

 

I hope Pacquiao wins and then after he retires for good on a good note.

Manny better look good. He is being set up for a match with Lomachenko if he wins the Matthysse fight.

I cant see Arum risking it. If Mannys left him he'll make sure Manny knows about it.

Roach ain't training him, so let's see.

It's still 3 months away, so we'll see. This is actually a good fight for Manny, so I can't see why he won't use Roach. I read that Buboy will train him for this one. Can you say, retirement KO loss? I want to give Manny the edge here, but if he doesn't give us the old "in & out" movement from Manny, then Matthysse could possibly have a good night.

Hopefully he gets a nutritionist or someone to get him some real food that can help him. I know for the Garcia fight he said he was just eating a handful of nuts and a strip of jerky a day. Training in damn near 2020 and using ancient tribal warrior nutrition ain't gonna benefit him one bit!
