I'm surprised Pacquiao pulled it out, doesn't seem like he's the shot fighter we thought he was, but he is still on the slide, well past his best, and he was made to look good in this fight, Matthysse was awful, no defence at all, unprepared really, very disappointing, I expected much more from a fighter who has the power take the win away from a fighter who has more speed and skill than him, but he couldn't ever set anything up, couldn't stop Pacquiao controlling the tempo and working at the pace he wanted to work at.

Same, I expected Matthysse to put on a better fight then he did that night. I think Matthysse underestimated Pacquiao because of him losing to an unknown (at the time they fought) Horn, and being near 40. Even though he is old, Pacquiao is still good enough wheree as if you come in unprepared he will beat you. I think being unprepared and not being able to deal with Pacquiaos speed or movement hurt him. What do you want to see next for the both? I think Pacquiao is still fighting because he said he's leaving Top Rank and dealing with his negotiaons for next fight through his promotional team. For Matthysse I think he should retire, he had a great run but I think he's done now.
Usyk vs Gassiev tonight, you ready?

If so, then that is so stupid, because he knows his own resume, knows Pacquiao is a boxing legend. Joel Diaz doesn't teach his fighters anywhere near enough defensive skill at this level in my opinion. I don't think he is much worse at all now than when Horn beat him, part of it might be an Asian thing, I don't know, but he seems to be able to decline very slowly. Matthysse, retire, Pacquiao, fight Crawford, he should, because imagine the money in that fight, he apparently wants Lomachencko and has declined to fight Crawford before, but Lomachencko is almost if not absolutely as good as Crawford, why duck one of the top 2 in the world and fight the other one of the top 2?, I mean, the Crawford fight would be simple, world champions, 147, done deal, weight wise, where is the issue? But Lomachencko, hoe would that work out?, Pacquiao has said he could still make 135 without issues, but at 39, can he cut down two weights?, and if so, would there be the issue of the A-side/B-side argument?, wanting to fight at 140 or 147, and Lomachencko not moving up? You?
If I can see it! Should be awesome.
Munguia vs Smith tonight, should be a good one!
Predictions for tonight, Braekhus vs Sagaydakovskaya, Usyk vs Gassiev, Munguia vs Smith, Machado vs Mensah.

That would be stupid. I don't think anyone should be overlooking Pacquiao even at this stage, because like you said he is a legend. I think Matthysse should retire then for Pacquiao fight Crawford or Lomachenko and retire. I think since Pacquiao is a small welterweight he could make 135 somewhat easy.
Great night of fights.

I think he can make 135 if he does the weight right, but bringing Lomachencko up to 140 is a weight advantage he could do with.
What do you think of the line-ups for WBSS 2 at 140 and 118?

He never pushes the limit on weigh ins, I remember he weighed 144 in a recent fight of his, but I think he'd do better at 140 then the full 135.
I like the matchups for both weights. For both weights do you think there will be any upsets?
