Manny Pacquiao and Lucas Matthysse went to war, Sunday at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The two welterweight stars traded punches and tried to knock each other out for seven rounds, but in the end, it was the Filipino eight division world boxing champion that came out on top as Pacquiao stopped Matthysse in the seventh round to become the new WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Champion.
And while inside the ring, their mission was to take each other out, it was nothing but respect between the two warriors afterwards.
Pacquiao and Matthysse, in fact, shared a photo after their title encounter.
It was Manny's 60th win in 69 professional fights and his first knockout win since 2009.
