Pacquiao wants to fight Lomachenko this autumn

Eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao from the Philippines is considering fighting Ukrainian WBO super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko this fall.

Pacquiao manager Michael Koncz said that his client "has his eye on Lomachenko in the fall" if he can defeat former 140-pound title challenger Lucas Matthysse in July, according to LA Times.

Pacquiao (59-7-2, 38 KOs) will fight Matthysse (39-4, 36 KOs) for the WBA secondary welterweight title in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) on July 14. If Pacquiao beats Matthysse, he would also like to face Lomachenko in the same city.

Lomachenko will fight WBA lightweight champion Jorge Linares from Venezuela in Las Vegas on May 12.
