Matchmaker Says Pacquiao’s At His Sharpest
With less than a week until his return to the ring international matchmaker Sean Gibbons believes Manny Pacquiao is as sharp as he’s ever been.
Gibbons believes that not only will Pacquiao defeat WBA welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse on July 14th, but that he may do it before the scorecards.
“Manny’s in great form and in high spirits as always,” said Gibbons. “Buboy (Fernandez) and Justin (Fortune) have him ready for victory.”
“The fight will come down to one thing – Manny’s ability to be in shape for 12 solid rounds and use his feet and angles. He will box circles around Matthysse and in proper shape, land an accumulation of punches and frustrate the champion. If Manny stays sharp and smart, he’ll land a late stoppage or win by a 100 percent clear decision. At the end of the fight, you will hear … and the new WBA welterweight champion of the world, Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao.”
