Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao defeated Argentine Lucas Matthysse in the World Boxing Association (WBA) regular welterweight match today, July 15 -- and the whole country is celebrating!
This is Manny's 60th win in his entire boxing career. He is 39 years old.
In a report by ABS-CBN News today, it said, "Pacquiao floored Matthysse thrice — the first caused by an uppercut in the third round. The next was in the fifth when Pacquiao let loose a pair of right hands to the chest that got Matthysse falling down on one knee. When he fell a third time in the seventh, referee Kenny Bayless waved the fight off sending the predominantly Filipino crowd in pandemonium."
On Twitter, the hashtag #PacquiaoMatthysse trended.
