Lucas Matthysse: I Hope Adrien Broner is Not All Talk!

By Edward Chaykovsky

As previously reported on, former three division world champion Adrien Broner is looking to face Lucas Matthysse in the next chapter of his junior welterweight quest. This Saturday night at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Broner and Matthysse will appear in separate Showtime televised fights.

Broner (28-1, 22 KOs) will face Emmanuel Taylor (18-2, 12 KOs) in the Showtime main event, while Lucas “La Maquina” Matthysse (35-3, 33 KOs) will square off with Mexico’s unbeaten Roberto “Massa” Ortiz (31-0-1, 24 KOs) in a 12-round bout for Ortiz’s WBC Silver Super Lightweight Title. 

“This isn’t a joke.  There should be three winners on Saturday: two ABs (Adrien Broner and Andre Berto) and then my next opponent, Lucas Matthysse.  That’s what’s happening," Broner said  “(Taylor) knows what he’s in for.  Everybody knows what they’re in for when they fight a guy like me.  But, at the end of the day, I’m going to be victorious."

Matthysse has responded, stating that he hopes Broner is being serious.

“I hope it’s true and it’s not just talk like he always talks,” Matthysse said.

Matthyse is a smaller guy than Maidana and less punch IMO, but better boxing skills. I would see this as a close fight.

[QUOTE=Toltec77;14914611]As much as I dislike Boner, I dont see Lucas beating him becuse he dont got no skills or the ring smarts to win like his fellow country man Chino.[/QUOTE] What have you been smoking? Matthysse is a bigger puncher…
