By Jake Donovan - Lucas Matthysse has already proven he can handle any style in the ring.
Now all that’s left to prove is how long he can hold his breath.
The twice-beaten Argentine slugger has punched his way into title contention, doing so by taking on the type of opponents nobody else is in a hurry to face. The fight he most craves these days is against unified 140 lb. titlist Danny ‘Swift’ Garcia. He even has an interim belt that says he’s due a shot at the unbeaten Philly product.
Rather than play the waiting game, Matthysse instead agrees to face anyone willing to join him in the ring. For this weekend, that potentially unlucky contestant will be Mike Dallas Jr., as they square off at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Showtime is along for the ride (Saturday, 10PM ET/PT), marking Matthysse’s third straight appearance on the network. If all goes well, he will eventually be back on their airwaves and against the opponent of choice. [Click Here To Read More
