Pacquiao Confirms Trainers For Matthysse Fight
Per a story first reported by Boxing Scene, it seems that Manny Pacquiao has made his decision regarding who will train him for his next fight.
Pacquiao has chosen Buboy Fernandez and Raides Neri to help him prepare for his WBA “regular” welterweight title shot on July 11th in Kuala Lumpur against Lucas Matthysse.
“I am excited to return to the ring once again and face a dangerous champion in a difficult and challenging fight,” said Pacquiao, earlier this week.
The Filipino fighter/Senator told reporters last week that he had yet to make a decision regarding who would train him for the upcoming fight, as Freddie Roach was initially not invited to the camp. Roach would find that out publicly, causing Pacquiao to backtrack, and claim he was considering his options.
Pacquiao is not also fighting, but promoting the event under his MP Promotions banner in conjunction with Golden Boy Promotions.
