Filipino boxing legend Manny Pacquiao clinched his 60th victory Sunday with a seventh-round knockout of Argentinian Lucas Matthysse, his first stoppage in nine years, that will help revive his career. "I came out smoking hot".
"It's most hard to be fighting Manny Pacquiao", he said.
And Pacquiao quickly gave credit to bosom buddy Buboy Fernandez, who took over the coaching rein from Freddie Roach.
Pacquiao set the pace early, probing for openings and moving menacingly around the ring as he dropped Matthysse for a first time in the third round with an uppercut after a flurry of punches had forced the Argentine onto the defensive.
The predominantly Filipino and Asian fans cheered on Pacquiao as he stepped in the stage and waved at the crowd while Matthysse was supported by his close friends, family and his Golden Boy promotional outfit.
Pacquiao, the only man to have won world titles in eight weight divisions in a glittering 23-year career, tipped the scales at 146 pounds.
