President Duterte has high praises for Senator Manny Pacquiao as he bagged the WBA welterweight title from Argentine boxer Lucas Matthysse in their fight in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Sunday.

"Sometimes you win some, sometimes you lose some, it was my turn to lose", said Matthysse through a translator after he lost the WBA World welterweight title Sunday at Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The final blow came in the seventh round as Matthysse was sent to his knees for the third time, forcing referee Kenny Bayless to end the fight.

"Not because he can not win or lose, but I'd like to see my friend rest on his laurels at this time and enjoy life".

Matthysse, 35, had won 36 of his 44 fights by knockout going into the bout. A huge fight against a legend like Manny Pacquiao is his opportunity to get up and shock the world by being a ring legend and defending his WBA belt in the process. I really love to fight and bring honor to my country.

"We did a good job in training and controlled ourselves", he added. "You win some, you lose some", Matthysse said.

"Fighting Manny Pacquiao [is the most hard part about fighting Pacquiao]", said Lucas Matthysse.

Argentina's Lucas Matthysse has accepted defeat and only had words of respect for his opponent from the Philippines, Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao. Pacquiao's rise to fame from an impoverished rural boy to one of the world's wealthiest sportsmen over his 23-year career has made him a national hero. The interim World Boxing Association featherweight belt is on the line when Mexico's Edivaldo Ortega (26-1-1, 16 KOs) fights unbeaten and highly rated Filipino prospect Jhack Tepora (21-0, 16 KOs).
