Lucas Matthysse: Danny Garcia is Slow and Wide Open

by David P. Greisman

Lucas Matthysse apparently doesn’t think highly of his likely next opponent, 140-pound titleholder Danny Garcia.

“He’s a slow fighter,” Matthysse said at the post-fight press conference after his third-round technical knockout win over Lamont Peterson this past Saturday. “He’s wide open. I know that I’ll win that fight as well.”

With Garcia’s win last month over Zab Judah, and with Matthysse’s win over Peterson, Golden Boy Promotions is looking to put the two together this September.

“It’s the fight I’ve been looking for,” Matthysse said. “We’ve talked about it. I was told that if I get past this [Peterson], that there’s a likelihood that I’ll be fighting Danny Garcia. That’s who I want.”

Matthysse is now 34-2 with 32 knockouts and 1 no contest. Garcia is 26-0 with 16 knockouts.

[QUOTE=The Weebler II;13391793]Every says that about Danny but he can box intelligently. This will be no early stoppage.[/QUOTE] Peterson is a good boxer too. Didn't seem to make much difference though.

Garcia is no pushover, he's has a little bit of everything. Good chin, punching power, jab, decent overall boxing skills. Yet, he could get wild in exchanges lacking defense in the process and in the Judah fight got tired in…
