KUALA LUMPUR — The weather forecast doesn’t look good for Lucas Matthysse.

Buboy Fernandez, chief trainer of Manny Pacquiao, warned Matthysse of a brewing storm, in the form of the Filipino boxing legend, coming on July 15.

“Abangan nila yung pagbabalik ng storm from the Pacific. Antayin nila. Kung lumihis man yun bagyo na pumasok sa Pilipinas, ito talagang papasok,” said Fernandez on Tuesday during the grand arrival of Pacquiao and Matthysse at Le Meridien Hotel here.

FEATURED STORIES

(They should brace for the return of the storm from the Pacific. If the typhoon that was supposed to hit the Philippines changed its course, this one will definitely hit.)

Fernandez is convinced Pacquiao has rediscovered his old self, the old version that ran rampant over the sport one division and one title at a time.

Speaking to a couple of Malaysian media, Fernandez described Pacquiao as a “monster” waiting to be unleashed on Sunday.

The 39-year-old Pacquiao hasn’t had a knockout since he stopped Miguel Cotto in the 12th round nine years ago.

Pacquiao is also coming off a controversial loss to Jeff Horn a year ago in Brisbane, Australia.
