Mathyssee this weekend and won by KO in 3 rounds... knocked him down a few times.

He aint back.... and should stick to those type opponents... Spence and Thurman (if he ever gets off the pine) would Murk him right now.

He had 3 KO's and actually got him out of there in 7 rounds--

Matthysse is slow, and certainly tailor made for Pac's style, but he looked pretty good out there to me. He could hang with anyone. Don't kid yourself.

Spence is younger, about 4 inches taller and has about 5 inches in reach. Those sort of differentials haven't meant a thing in terms of guys who MP has mowed down. We all get stuck on this age thing with athletes but it's less clear where and when a meaningful diminution of skills occurs these days.

Crawford would be a worse matchup for Pacquiao than Spence IMO. I like Spence a lot but that's the only knock on him, the level of competition. Best guy he's faced is Kell Brook, and that was a mere 8 months after GGG fractured his face.

If he's rejuvenated and remotivated, the little dude can hang with anyone in and around that weight class. We're not talking about a normal human being here.

Three words I will leave you with to ruminate regarding/pertaining to his future potential matchups:

Pacquiao. Doesn't. Tire.

That should concern anyone he might fight.

That was before he found the lord and got off those oxygenation drugs... Pacquio is not what he was and Mythyssee was a b fighter at best in his prime so he is supposed to do that.  These young guys should fight him though if for nothing else to get the name on their resume even if he is passed his prime.

Also if he is aged and not tiring he is about to fail a doping test soon... Father time is undefeated.

Father Time is unarguably undefeated, but science and technology have allowed us to keep his sorry a*s waiting in the driveway a lot longer before we have to open the garage door.

After watching Hopkins befuddle guys old enough to be his kids for a good chunk of his last decade in boxing, I'm not so sure that age is the automatic check in the liability column that it used to be. Just means you gotta work harder to get the job done.

Tom Brady is still out there zinging it at 40, in a sport far more taxing physically (and mentally perhaps), so whatever he's doing is working. AND HE'S WORKING WITH A QUACK!

At least give Pacman some credit for looking better than he has in years. Maybe getting rid of Freddie Roach has caused him to be more born again than any blood doping or holy book.

Didn't know he got rid of Freddie Roach or if he was just on break for that fight lol.  Hopkins is a different story... In terms of boxing Technique Bernard may have been the greatest of all time in sheer boxing skill and technique.  He fought off Father time by confusing the isht and being technical through old age... it did not work when someone knew to just overwhelm him like Calzaghe (who was on Cocaine for like 97% of his fights non the less LOL).

The difference between him and my all time favorite RJJ is Roy was probably one of the most talented boxers to ever box but once father time caught him his talent diminished and his technique was not good enough to sustain him...

Pacquiao canned Roach and didn't even tell him. He found out via social media. Probably was long overdue but if that's indeed how it went down then that's kind of a sh*tty way to give someone the gate.

I never knew Calzaghe was hopped up. Actually thought he was the only guy to beat Hopkins in his prime but that's because he couldn't be roughhoused and was phenomenal that fight in timing him and his unorthodox head movements. IIRC he beat Jeff Lacy half retarded too and it was a shocker to me as I thought JL was unbeatable at that point in his career.

RJJr. stayed at the party too long but that Tarver KO was unquestionably the turning point.

I'm presently trying to process how this Wilder-Joshua fight fell apart...DW agreed to a $15M flat purse, agreed to travel to the UK for the fight, and Joshua still went ahead and signed to fight an overrated Russian who can't stay off the dope either. Am I missing something here?

Pac... That was really sh***y of him... Yes past due but that doesn't speak well for his "good guy mantra"

JC admitted to being high on Cocaine most of his career after retiring.. .Also Bhops was well past his prime when that fight happened (he was 43 bro NO ONE is in there prime at any sport in their 40's LMAO) but he was still within his years of being a dominant fighter.  Also everyone thought JL was unbeatable... but looking back he got that rep by knocking out tomato cans... we were fooled

RJJ does not know how to let it go... sad as yes the Tarver fight was the turning point... But I would actually say going up to HW and coming back down was the actual turning point.

Either AJ is a BIH or his promotion team does not want to spoil their goose... I originally favored AJ but not sure he even wants to get in the ring with Wilder... One thing about the Skinny bomber he definitely has elite HW power... He can change a fight with one punch as he showed in his last fight that he was losing.

So...how did it come to pass that Calzaghe never got nailed for stuffing his snoot with the devil's dandruff? Was boxing that lax about testing back then? You know what, never mind...sport's always been crooked as a pretzel, so I could see some Welsh thug handing a bag of money to someone and saying "J'st kape on gooin' doon the holeway, lodd, and doon't stope ott Jooee's dressin' woom".

Both Joshua and Wilder have reasons to think they'd win and both have to know they have exploitable holes in their styles. Joshua did little to nothing against Parker, and Wilder was staggering like a bum on Kessler at one point until he managed to survive and turn the tables on King Kong. So I have to wonder if this isn't all orchestrated BS to ramp up the drama and heighten the anticipation -- and the subsequent paydays -- whilst the both of them fight someone else in the interim.

Agree on both points.

JC I think I saw a mini doc on him but he was from the slums... so you already know he has connections

You might be write that AJ and DW took a page from MP and FM book in hyping up a fight... Granted I think early on that was more FM than MP at the end I think they were definitely in cahoots... Or a better hype job team work would be CM and FM... I think FM told him to say some racist stuff so you really get the people going LOL.

This is probably some orchestrated nonsense too but I love this Miller guy. Gotta be his way of saying you can't come to terms w Wilder, give me a bell and you can get this work.

Saw the little 1 minute video finally and 1 thing jumped out to me...

Many in a club in Vegas with a bunch of cute Asian females that are not his wife... Looks like Manny might be back in the game (and that is when he was at his best!) LOL

I never saw this but now I'll have to go hunt for it. Hookers and blow might not be the best combo for professional fighters but they've been great inspiration for some of the best rock music ever produced.

Not sure if you caught the Joshua fight - it was on some network I never heard of but of course live feeds were in abundance - but that Russian broke his f**king nose!!! Ran out of gas but was likely winning the fight when he got starched.

Another subpar fight by AJ. I have no idea who to pick if he does ever get to Wilder but both of them have some flaws and strengths. Wilder has to keep up his end of the bargain and get past fat Fury.
