I favor Matthysse over Garcia, but that doesn't mean that Garcia doesn't have a legit chance of winning. Lucas would be his biggest test to date, and I think he'd surprise us with how much grit he has. I think he gets stopped in the 10th like Ajose did, but the fight will wind up making me a bigger fan of both fighters.
Lucas has a loss against Alexander and Judah, let's keep it factual. I think he won those too, but fact is that he didn't get the W.
Ajose's biggest advantage is that he's a southpaw, and yes he's faster. Garcia isn't a pure boxer though, he's a counter-banger. That can be a great asset against Matt or it can be a curse. We'll have to wait and see until they fight.
