Pacquiao vs Matthysse fight - when and where
Manny Pacquiao vs Lucas Mattyhsse takes place on Saturday, June 14 at 9pm ET, 6pm ET, 2am Sunday morning BST, and 11am Sunday AEST. Though we can probably expect the boxers to enter the ring a couple of hours later than those official times.
The fight will be held at the 16,000-capacity Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Manny Pacquiao is back and he's out to snatch the WBA welterweight belt from Argentine Lucas Mattyhsse this weekend. This should be some fight and we're here to make sure you don't miss any of the action - get yourself a live stream no matter where you are in the world.
Given the highly controversial nature of his defeat to Jeff Horn last year, which saw the unanimous judge's decision fiercely contested throughout boxing, Pacquiao will be on a mission for revenge in Kuala Lumpur.
While not quite at Pacman's 39 years, 35-year-old Matthysse is another fighter out to prove his career isn't hitting a decline. An impressive knock-out of Tewa Kiram in January this year would have done his confidence no harm at all, and Pacquiao will need to rediscover some of his form from yesteryear if he's to out-do defending champion Matthysse.
Could this be a famous comeback for Pacquiao or a career-ending defeat? Find out by following one of the watching options below and getting a live stream of the big Pacquiao vs Matthysse fight.
