Humberto Soto Wants To Face Garcia-Matthysse Winner

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

On Saturday night in Obregan, former champion Humberto Soto (60-8-2, 34KOs) made his return and won a dominating decision over Silverio Ortiz (26-14). The WBC's vacant Internation junior welterweight title was aquired by Soto.

The Mexican veteran's team is going to push for the winner of the ordered fight between WBC/WBA champion Danny Garcia and mandatory challenger Lucas Matthysse. Garcia will first defend his title on April 27th against Zab Judah, but then he must face Matthysse.

Soto already fought Matthysse in June of last year and was stopped in five rounds at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The boxer says there personal issues that affected his training camp and he would like to get another shot at Matthysse.

Ranked at #6 by the WBC at 140-pounds, Soto's team expect the recent victory and the regional title win to elevate his standing to a top five position in the rankings.

Matthysse beats both easy. Soto has good boxing abilities but the problem is when he gets cracked he wants to give it back. you will lose if you try to bring it with Matthysse. that's why I don't think Garcia…

All Soto wants to do is to continue fighting stiffs on Mexican television.I'm still shocked that he fought Matthysse in the first place, because fighting top contenders is just something that Soto doesn't do.It's not how he rolls, man. :pat:…

[QUOTE=TOBYLEE1;13020460]Soto was that bogey man that a lot of ppl talked about but he really never beat any top fighters. At this point of his career he won't fair well with any of the top JrWW. Like any other fighter…
