Manny Pacquiao vs Lucas Matthysse: Live stream, how to watch WBA title fight

WBA welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse will look to defend his title in a ‘dream come true’ fight against eight division titleholder Manny Pacquiao as the two meet at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia this weekend.

Pacquiao will be returning to the ring for the first time since he was defeated by Australia fighter Jeff Horn last year.

 Both fighters have 98 wins between them.

Both fighters have 98 wins between them.

When is Pacquiao vs Matthysse, and what time does it start?

Four of Pacquiao’s seven defeats have come in the Filipino’s last ten fights, having previosuly gine seven years without a loss between 2005 and 2012.

Pacquiao has also failed to score a knockout since his victory over Miguel Cotto back in November 2009.

In that time, Matthysse has secured 14 wins from a knockout, including his last two, last losing to Viktor Postol in 2015.

However, he has not faced elite opposition since and is unfamiliar with the welterweight division Pacquiao has been a regular with since 2009, taking part in two fights at the 147 pound limit.

The fight will take place on Saturday, July 14 and will begin at around 3am-4am UK time.

The clash will be held at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur.
