Lucas Matthysse: Danny Garcia Studied Me Well

By Elisinio Castillo

Junior welterweight contender Lucas Matthysse (34-3, 32KOs) says WBC/WBA champion Danny Garcia (27-0, 16KOs) did his homework. Last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Garcia won a twelve round unanimous decision over Matthysse.

Garcia was the underdog coming in, but he withstood Matthysse's punches, closed the Argentine boxer's right eye in the sixth round and scored a knockdown in the eleventh. Matthysse had no excuses and offered nothing but respect to the champion.

"I fought with only one eye for half of the contest and I still put up a great fight. He is a good champion. I thank him for giving me the opportunity. It was a good fight. He caught me with a good shot and I could not see. He studied me well before the fight," Matthysse said.

Garcia will likely move up to the welterweight division, leaving the door open for Matthysse to pursue the vacant WBC/WBA titles. Golden Boy Promotions denied reports that Garcia and Matthysse were going to face each other in a rematch.

Matthysse suffered a small fracture of his right orbital bone. He will need at least two months to heal the injury.

The fight lived up to the hype. Props to Garcia and Matthysse. Matthysse had the heart to keep punching despite the shut eye. No KO's but was worth watching. "This is America! You wanna be Argentino, Valentino, Mexicanino!! This is America! The government gives you that welfare check!" ...
