Garcia Not Impressed: Matthysse Not Among The Best

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (26-0, 16KOs) is not that impressed with the record of Lucas Matthysse (34-2, 32KOs). Garcia will defend his titles against Matthysse on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las vegas. Among most of the experts, Matthysse is the favorite to win. But Garcia sees nothing special about Matthysse's power, the high percentage of knockouts on his record, or his ability to fight.

"He's just a regular fighter. He has two hands, just like me. We're going to go in there and show the world who is the best 140-pound fighter. I just have to be me. I never have a game plan. I have to go in the ring and I adapt. I make a adjustments in the fight, that's what champions do. You can have a game plan and if it don't work - then what do you do?," Garcia told BoxingScene.com.

"I've seen a lot of strong fighters in my career, growing up and watching on TV. That [alone] just don't win you fights. He already has two losses. He fought two people who hit him back and he lost, everybody else was scared and got knocked out. And 30 [of his wins] were in Argentina. I would have been 30-0 too with 30 knockouts. I don't consider him one of the best because he's never won a world title. He had his shot and lost."

[QUOTE=FerFal'sStepDad;13642035]In context as I was discussing Garcia's wins. You DO know that Garcia fought Morales right? Sounds like you have a problem with facts and prefer instead to pretend that Morales did not do a really cool spin move before…

[QUOTE=FerFal'sStepDad;13642817]Yep. they had Guerrero as a p4p fighter overnight because he beat Berto and yet they always hold other fighters from other lands up to higher standards. "WHO did he beat?!" Meanwhile, homeboy Guerrero beats Berto, and NONE of them…
