Matthysse Denies “He Quit” Against Pacquiao
Lucas Matthysse returned home to Argentina, and is speaking out regarding those who claim he “quit” against Manny Pacquiao last weekend.
Matthysse would fall to Pacquiao in the seventh round of his only defense of the WBA “regular” welterweight title, and critics claim that Matthysse quit and was looking for a way out of a beating from the Filipino senator.
“They say I [quit] and a lot of bullsh*t, nonsense,” Matthysse said.
“Just as we criticize Messi, who is the best soccer player, [the critics] are going to kill me. That’s how we Argentines are. …You win some and you lose some. They give you criticism, but we Argentines are like that, what are you going to do. Right now I have to rest. I was away from home for a long time, I want to be with my daughter and my family, who are the ones who always welcome me with a hug.”
