New-look Manny Pacquiao begins training for Lucas Mathysse
Bigote-at-balbas-less Manny Pacquiao begins training for his upcoming bout against WBA welterweight world champion Lucas Mathysse.
Now that the WHO, WHEN, and WHERE has been answered regarding Manny Pacquiao's next move inside the boxing ring, it's time to get down to business.
With the eight-division boxing champion set to take on WBA welterweight world champion Lucas Mathysse in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia this coming June 24th, Manny has already started getting work in.
Via a tweet from ABS-CBN's Dyan Castillejo Monday morning, the boxer-turned-senator did some cardio, some shadow-boxing, and some core work to start preparations for his 69th pro fight.

"Champion siya, at naniniwala ako na magandang fight yung maipapakita namin, hindi yun umaatras eh," Pacquiao said about his upcoming Argentinian challenge. "Sugod ng sugod, so maraming aksyon sa itaas ng ring."
Also, peep Pacquiao's new look!
The 39-year old Pinoy boxing icon has shaved off his iconic bigote-at-balbas combo, making himself look a bit more youthful in the process, wouldn't you say?
The official announcement of the Pacquiao-Mathysse fight is expected to take place later this month.
