He also said that age does not matter for him and he still wanted to be a champion again. “I don’t think about my age. My motivation going to this fight is I want to be a world champion again,” Pacquiao told ABS-CBN’s Dyan Castillejo.


Boxing experts emphasized this fight will be a dangerous one  for the Filipino superstar because the Argentinean boxer is riding a hot streak in his career with Matthyse publicly announcing he is aiming to knock out the boxing icon in a push to punctuate the legend’s career. 


This is the 69th fight of Pacquiao (59-7-2,38 KOs), and the first under new head trainer Buboy Fernandez, who replaced legendary coach Freddie Roach.
