Manny Pacquiao loosens up for Kuala Lumpur fight

MANILA, Philippines — Manny Pacquiao yesterday marked Day 1 of his preparations for his ring return on June 24 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

There’s some apprehension, some concern, whether or not the fight, his first since July last year, would happen.

Pacquiao said the bout against WBA welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse is close to being finalized while American promoter Bob Arum said not until the Malaysia financiers come up with the money.

Golden Boy chief Oscar deal Hoya, who promotes the Argentine champion, will arrive in Manila once the fight is sealed, according to Pacquiao.
