The Pacquiao Vs Matthysse event will be beamed live at 12 noon from the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur (around 8 PM, July 14 in the US and Mexico) via satellite.

With World Cup fever undeniably in the minds of many, boxing also has its version of the World Cup, with the Philippines and Argentina vying for the World Boxing Association welterweight belt in the main event featuring the legendary Pacquiao and Matthysse.

In the main supporting bout, it will be Mexico against the Philippines between Mexican Edivaldo Ortega (26-1-1) and Jhack Tepora (21-0, 16 KOs) of the Philippines.

Host Malaysia will feature its best fighters Muhammad Farkhan, Theena Thayalan and Alman Abu Baker battling fighters from Thailand and 2 Indian boxers, respectively, in the undercards stacked deep by the organizers, who are trying to impress a worldwide audience.

Other countries represented in the event include Australia and Japan.
