Resurgent Manny Pacquiao wants second crack at Floyd Mayweather

Manny Pacquiao

Referee Kenny Bayless called off the fight after two minutes and 43 seconds of the seventh round when Matthysse buckled following another stiff uppercut and spat out his mouthguard as he was being counted.

A fight with Pacquiao conducted at the beginning of July past year, having suffered a seventh defeat in his professional career, a unanimous decision losing to Australian Jeff horn.

"My next fight, I want to defend my belt", he added.

He is now the WBA welterweight champion. "You have to rest and get it back and that's what I did".

The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) joins the rest of the nation in celebrating the victory of Filipino boxing icon and Senator Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao over Argentinian boxer Lucas Matthysse at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Sunday.

Paul Supan of Jose Rizal University in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), who watched the fight live, said people need "to separate Pacquiao the boxer from Pacquiao the politician".

Pacquiao, now with a win-loss-draw record of 60-7-2, said he was enjoying his win and was not in negotiations at this time for his next bout.

"Still, I don't know yet", Pacquiao replied.

Matthysse was unfortunately never really in the fight from the start, as he was not able to find the distance on Pacquiao, who was using his great footwork to dart in and out on the Argentinian who could not land very many of his vaunted knockout right hand punches flush.

"I am addicted to boxing".

"Congratulations Manny Pacquiao", Horn posted on Instagram.

Horn, who lost his WBO welterweight title to Terence Crawford in Las Vegas last month, was quick to respond to Pacquiao's victory. "That's my heart's desire".

Pacquiao, already one of the greatest boxers in history with unprecedented world titles in eight weight classes, silenced some of his critics last weekend by pummelling the unsafe Argentine into submission by technical knockout in the seventh round.
