Lucas Matthysse is not getting any younger either, but he has been the more active fighter of the two and fitness along with recent match practice could play a key role in the fight.
Despite a ring rusty Pacquiao coming here on the back of a loss to Jeff Horn, there is something intriguing about this man’s inability to leave down his boots, his gloves and enjoy his money & family with a happy retirement, given how much he has given to the sport of boxing. He landed twice the punches Horn did, but the judges scored it for the Aussie.

True to form, Manny Pacquiao was very humble in defeat, but it obviously must have hurt his pride a great deal. He can’t go out of boxing like that and this opportunity to win yet another world title for the 39-year old, will certainly have given him plenty of motivation inside the Wild Card camp over the past few months.
With that in mind, Pacquiao makes the most appeal in the win market. At 1/2 (1.50) with most online bookies, Pacquiao should find a way to win. His speed and timing will count for a lot and overall, it should pay to have both the KO and Decision verdict on side.
