Pacquiao thanks fight saboteurs for extra publicity
With the arrival of strength and conditioning coach Justine Fortune Friday, Manny Pacquiao’s training shifted to higher gear as he prepares for the all-important fight of his life opposite WBA champion Lucas Matthysse on July 15. Pacquiao, also the promoter of the mega-fight, dispelled rumors that there might even be a possibility of a postponement of this battle which he is treating with utmost concern and pride.
“We are shifting our training to higher gear now with less than two months before the fight,” said Pacquiao, who like Matthysse, is deep in training for their monumental clash at the posh Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur.
Dubbed as “Fight of Champions,” the Pacquiao Vs Matthysse clash hopes to equal, if not surpass the “Fight of a Lifetime” duel between Mumammad Ali and Joe Bugner in Malaysia in 1975.
“That is malicious and untrue,” said Pacquiao, referring to published reports that his inaugural promotional show under his MP Promotions banner will be postponed. Calling the persons involved as “saboteurs,” Pacquiao, the fighter, said he is very serious about winning this fight as he knows that Matthysse is also hoping to retire him from boxing. “Ironically, I would like to thank these rumor-mongers for the extra publicity that they are contributing to make this fight such a huge success. I am turning this negative news into something good because no news is actually bad news,” added Pacquiao.
