At a press conference at the Pop-up Gym Le Meridien Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on July 10 Manny Pacquiao insisted he is ‘Motivated, Happy and Hungry ahead of his WBA welterweight title clash against champion Lucas Matthysse on Saturday.
Speaking to reporters the Filipino boxing legend said: "I am ready. I have never predicted the outcome of any of my fights but this training camp is special for many reasons. I am motivated. I am happy. I am hungry. I am excited to show the world a new Manny Pacquiao on July 15 (July 14 in the US) at the Axiata Arena here in Kuala Lumpur."
"I have always been a boxer. Boxing has been my country’s (Philippines) source of pride and my humble contribution to my fellowmen. When I won one world title after another until we had 10 world titles in eight divisions, it felt like we have won the World Cup many times over."
