Lucas Matthysse Prepares for Pacquiao Showdown

 

Lucas Matthysse:

“Make sure you to watch the fight. It is going to be great. Two or three days before a fight, I focus on training and resting. The training is to make sure I’m on weight. I do enough to stay on weight because most of the work was done during camp. It’s about maintaining weight and fine tuning the plan. I’m resting a lot as well and getting great sleep. I’m at peace with my mind right now.”

Joel Diaz:

“Lucas has been walking around 2 or 3 pounds over the weight limit. After dinner last night, he was only two pounds over. The weight has never been an issue. He’s been only a few pounds over for the past few weeks. We train for the fight, not the weight. Where we train [in Indio, Calif] it’s 116 degrees right now, so Malyasia is cold to us compared to that. A win over Pacquiao means a lot to me and the rest of our time because he train hard for it. I don’t think about how many times I’ve gone up against him as a trainer. We are facing a great fighter. A legendary fighter. Much respect to him. But when they get in the ring, it’s going to be a fight.”

Manny Pacquiao:

“We are locked and loaded. I am more than ready and excited to show Malaysian fight fans the fruits of hard training and preparation. We had a very great training camp and I cannot wait to fight on Sunday, July 15 (July 14 in the US).”
