Matthysse vs Olusegun in talks!
I think its a bit unfair this guys been a mandatory for so long and everyones avoided him but Matthysse, I feel sorry for the guy.
I can't blame Garcia for fighting Khan for a bigger payday though.
What do you think of this fight?
Big fan of both guys and I honestly believe Olusegun is the most skillful guy at 140 not named Joan Guzman or Marquez.
Southpaw boxer with blinding speed & superb boxing ability. He seems a really cool guy outside the ring too, I recall a commentator trying to call him featherfisted & he responded ''I am a boxer, not a fighter, I'd rather put on a clinic & show the world my skillset. If I feel I can K.O a guy I will school him some more then take his ass out''

This is kind of fight that people will not know how good it will be till they see it. This is absolutely great style match ups, one of best that can be made in boxing today in my opinion. Both guys throws pretty much all their punches with bad intentions, Matthyse is aggressive and hittable and has more power, but Olusegun is kinda wild and crazy, can punch himself out in spots and then come back strong after moment of weakness, this will give this fight some crazy moments and turn arounds. Both are not the best defensively, but both with great chins. Damn please just make it happen.
I'll predict right now that it will be fight of the year if it happens. My other candidate is Jean Pascal - Tavoris Cloud by the way.

Good fight, these guys are at a disadvantage because of either boxing politics or the fact that they don't come from a big community of boxing followers, We have Danny Garcia jumping the queue to fight Morales for the WBC belt even though Olusegun has already been promised his chance, and we all know the story of Lucas M getting jobbed twice in America, sometimes boxing just makes you feel depress when analysing it.

Olusegun is a pretty good talent but has faced absolutely nobody. This would be his first fight against a world class fighter. I think it would turn out to be good fight so make it happen.

I would have wanted Olusegun to have gained more experience against higher level opposition because he has the kind of style that could trouble anyone, he's very unorthodox. It's a very good fight nonetheless, but sort of a wide jump for Olusegun.

Based on that video, I think Matthysse would destroy the guy....
That opinion may be a bit biased though since I'm a big Matthysse fan.....

Olusegun is pretty good but has not faced anyone like Lucas but would not be suprised if he would outbox Lucas too a ud.Lucas takes a late stoppage
