Pacquiao will begin his training next month for the July 15th fight, this will be his fight after an almost 1 year of layoff, he was last seen fighting Jeff Horn of Australia and was defeated by unanimous decision. Meanwhile Lucas Martin Matthysse finally became a world champion after knocking out Tewa Kiram last January 2018 in the 8th round.

There's also a rumor that Freddie Roach will not be seen on Pacquiao's corner and Buboy Fernandez will lead Pacquiao in training.

There will be six Filipino boxers to join the undercard including Jhack Tepora who will fight for the IBO belt against the yet to be named Mexican.
