Danny Garcia: Matthysse is Just a Regular Tough Guy

By Bill Emes

WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia is riding high after his four round destruction of Erik Morales on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Garcia won a twelve round decision over Morales in March, but promised to stop him in four when the rematch got signed.

"That's two predictions in a row that I got [regarding four round knockouts," Garcia (25-0, 16KOs) told BoxingScene.com

Garcia now wants the best in 2013.

"Whatever Golden Boy wants. I want the best. I want the big fights. If my dad thinks I'm ready, if my manager thinks I'm ready. I think I'm ready but I'll let them do that," Garcia said.

One possible option is Argentine bomber Lucas Matthysse (32-2, 30KOs), who captured the WBC's interim-title last month with a ten round TKO of Ajose Olusegun. Matthysse believes he earned a crack at Garcia, but the unified champion is not that impressed with him.

"It would be a good fight, but how can you be one of the best when you have no titles? He has two losses. I take nothing away from him. He's a good fighter, but he's not like no world-class superstar or nothing. He's just a regular tough guy to me, I've seen them before," Garcia said.

Zab Judah and Devon Alexander have called Matthysse one of the hardest punchers, if not the hardest, that they ever faced.

"That's because they never faced me yet," Garcia chimed in.

Judah (42-7, 29KOs), who has a good following on the East Coast, is one possible option for Garcia's next fight, which may take place at Barclays.

[quote=GRUSTLER;12630310]Do you even know what "skills" means? What "skills" does Rios have? Letting his opponents beat up on him until he gets in some meaningful punches? Or the "skills" he displayed at 135 when he couldn't make weight and stunk…

[QUOTE=DominiBox;12629408]Last time i checked..2W and a Draw. [I][B]"Corrales moved down one weight class for the fight which he fought at previously before moving up" [/I] Can you imagine if it was Pacquiao who made Corrales move down a weight class.…
