Lucas Matthysse Back in Title Hunt in March or April

By Elisinio Castillo

According to Mario Arano, who co-promotes junior welterweight contender Lucas Matthysse (34-2, 32KOs) with Golden Boy Promotions, his fighter is coming back on a date in late March or early April. Matthysse suffered a twelve round decision loss to WBC/WBA champion Danny Garcia on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. After a return fight in the first half of 2014, Arano expects Matthysse to reclaim a world championship in the fall. Matthysse had previously held the WBC's interim-world title.

"By no later than August or September, he will once again have his belt. He will have a fight in late March or early April and then we will wait to see what happens regarding a fight for the world title. We assume that García will move up in weight. Lucas is number 3 in the WBC rankings and right now an eliminator was ordered between the number 1 and 2 (Ukraine's Viktor Postol and Selcuk Aydin of Turkey, respectively). The winner of that fight will face Garcia. And if not, the winner will have to fight with us. It is a matter of eight or nine months for Lucas to reclaim his belt," Arano said.

Matthysse doesnt deserve to get trashed on for his loss to Danny, he gave Dan the man a 12 round war and hes still a top 140 fighter. Matthysse above Broner who was scared of 140 anyday of the week.

Matthyse gets a rematch with Garcia, it would be worse. Just look at Erik Morales.. Never mess with Philly young bulls, we come back on a worst behavior.

Probably more interesting fights at 147 for Lucas at this point. A lot of action in the Golden Boy stable. If he decides to stay at 140 he'll probably get that WBC belt alright. More important that he works on…
