SA tamang panahon.

Ito ang paliwanag ni Top Rank Promotions CEO Bob Arum ng Estados Unidos sa posibilidad na upakang Emmanuel Pacquiao at Lucas Matthysse ng Argentina.

Ayon kahapon sa promoter, may nakalinya nang laban ang eight-division world pro boxing champion, malamang kontra sa dati ring kampeong Amerikanong si Mike Alvarado.

“Well [it wasn’t possible to do next], because nobody’s ever talked to Matthysse, about whether he’s ready [to even fight in April]. I think some writer asked [Pacquiao] if he’d want to fight, and he said yes. Would he fight Matthysse down the road? Why not? But we were up against a deadline in April, so at that point not having talked to the opponent, it was a non-starter,” li­tanya ni Arum.

Hinamon ni Matthysse si Pacquiao matapos ang 8th round demolition kontra Tewa Kiram ng Thailand noong Ene­ro sa Los Angeles.

Agad namang kumasa sa hamon ang 39-anyos na Pinoy ring icon at sinabing kursunada ring makaharap ang WBA welterweight champion na si Matthysse (39-4, 36 Kos). (Ferdz delos Santos)
