Eight-division boxing world champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao opened his training camp for his upcoming fight against Lucas Matthysse of Argentina.

“Manny starts his training for the fight vs Lucas Mathysse. The bout will take place in Kuala Lumpur on June 24. Pacquiao says he’s excited to fight Mathysse as he is an aggressive fighter,” ABS CBN’s Dyan Castillejo tweeted on Monday.

Manny had some roadwork and also some light shadowboxing on Monday morning.

His longtime coach, Freddie Roach, was not present during his first day of training.

Pacquiao announced last week that he will be fighting against reigning WBA Welterweight World Champion Lucas Matthysse in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia this coming June 24.

Matthysse has 39 wins, 4 losses, 36 via KOs; Pacquiao had his WBO title loss to Jeff Horn in Australia last July 2017 while Matthysse is coming off from a win over Tewa Kiram for the vacant WBA welterweight world title just this January.
