Lucas Matthysse vs. Manny Pacquiao Weigh-in

 

By. BrotherJR

July 14, 2018

 

As everyone knows the big fight this week is Lucas Matthysse vs. Manny Pacquiao set to take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Saturday night (late Sunday morning, Malaysian time) and will be televised here in the U.S. on the ESPN+ app. On Friday evening U.S. time, the weigh-in took place for the Matthysse vs. Pacquiao card. Here are the official weights for Matthysse and Pacquiao as well as the undercard bouts set to take place:

Lucas Matthysse vs. Manny Pacquiao (WBA Welterweight Title)

  • Lucas Matthysse – 146.7 lbs.
  • Manny Pacquiao – 146 lbs.

 

Carlos Canizales vs. Bin Lu (WBA Lt. Flyweight Title)

  • Carlos Canizales – 106.4 lbs.
  • Bin Lu – 106.7 lbs.

 

Muhammad Waseem vs. Murati Mthalane (vacant IBF Flyweight Title)

  • Muhammad Waseem – 111.3 lbs.
  • Moruti Mthalane – 111.5 lbs.

 

Jhack Tepora vs. Edivaldo Ortega (WBA Interim Featherweight Title)

  • Jhack Tepora – 125.4 lbs
  • Edivaldo Orgeta  – 125.6 lbs.

 

Both Lucas Matthysse and Manny Pacquiao appear to have made weight without any serious issue, looking in excellent shape. Each fighter appeared confident and relaxed during the weight-in and shook hands afterwards as opposed to engaging in the customary stare-down.

The vibe was quite the opposite as far as the weigh-in for Muhammad Waseem and Moruti Mthlane. Things got a bit testy as Waseem and Mthlane (as well as their camps) pointed fingers at each other and engaged in some trash-talking following an intense face-off. Based on the stare-down alone, both Waseem and Mthalane mean business.

Carlos Canizales vs Bin Lu Preview

By. BrotherJR

Canizales vs. Lu1

 

I know Lucas Matthysse vs. Manny Pacquiao is the high profile fight of the week for obvious reasons. However, the fight that has really piqued my interest will take place on the undercard of Matthysse vs. Pacquiao as WBA World Jr. Flyweight title champion Carlos Canizales will make first defense of the title against Bin Lu. Why am I so interested in this bout? It’s mainly because of Lu who is making the audacious move of challenging for a world title in only his second professional bout.

In attempting to win a world title in only the second bout of his career, Bin Lu is trying to do something that Vasyl Lomanchenko attempted (when he fought and lost to then WBO Featherweight Champion Orlando Salido in 2014), but ultimately failed to accomplish. To say this is ballsy and bold move from Lu and his handlers is an understatement.

In Canizales (20-0-1, 16 KO’s) you have a fighter who is athletic and skilled with good punching power. Problem with Canizales is that during his draw against Roichi Taguchi and during his win over Reiya Konishia to win the WBA title in March of this year, the champ faded a bit late in both fights. When forced backwards and made to fight at a fast pace, Canizales is not as effective as he becomes sloppy defensively. And two of Canizales greatest weaknesses… he’s a poor inside fighter and does not know how to fight off the ropes. When put in those positions, his tendency is to grab and hold.

An amateur star who also had five bouts in AIBA (International Boxing Association), the 23-year old southpaw Lu (1-0, KO) while certainly lacking professional experience, is no doubt a skilled and talented fighter with terrific hand and footspeed  as well as excellent head movement. If this fight is based on pure ability and skill, dare I say that Lu has the advantage.

With so many unknowns in this fight particularly as it pertains to Lu, this is a fascinating matchup. Will the experience, power and guile of the 25-year old Carlos Canizales be too much for the young, upstart Bin Lu? Or is Lu more along the lines of a Naoya Inoue, a young prodigy who is so good and talented that it makes up for his lack of experience? If Lu pulls this off he will be set a record for winning a world title in the fewest number of fights. Oh, what intrigue, I can’t wait.
