By Reynaldo Sanchez

Argentine junior welterweight contender Lucas Matthysse (35-3, 33KOs) continues to train hard in Argentina, under the orders of his coach Luis "Cuty" Barrera for his upcoming fight versus WBC silver champion Roberto Ortiz (31-0-1, 24KOs) of Mexico on September 6th. The Showtime televised fight takes place at the US Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds.

Both Matthysse and his coach Barrera briefly spoke with BoxingScene.com from their training camp in Argentina.

BoxingScene.com: What can you tell us about this training camp for the fight against Ortiz?

Barrera: We are very close to 140 pounds, two weeks before the fight. We want to fight for a title again, and we're coming to Cincinnati to win and Lucas will return to the elite in this class weight.

BoxingScene.com: If Lucas defeats Ortiz, do you believe he might face Danny Garcia again?

Barrera: Lucas is ready to face any champion, if it's Danny Garcia that would be great for us but Lucas will also be ready for all the best junior welterweights.

BoxingScene.com: When do you arrive to the United States?

Barrera: On Saturday, the evening of August 30, we are going to departure to the United States and arrive on Sunday, and on Monday - September 1st - we are going to train in the morning.

BoxingScene.com: How do you feel going into this fight with Ortiz?

Lucas: I'm fine. The [last] fight with [John] Molina gave me the opportunity to return to the United States to fight against Ortiz, and hopefully I'll fight for a title soon.

BoxingScene.com:  Are you coming ready to go to ten rounds?

Lucas: I'll knock Ortiz out. I know that Mexicans are very tough fighters, but I trust in myself and beating Ortiz could give me another chance for a title shot.

BoxingScene.com: You want to fight Danny Garcia again?

Lucas: Sure, but before that I need to beat Ortiz first. We respect everyone, but I'm ready to fight against all the best - Garcia, Broner or anyone else.

[QUOTE=bigjavi973]Ima look up some fights on youtube of roberto ortiz. But his boxrec is bad.[/QUOTE] I tried the same thing. His last 3 fights aren't on youtube, which sucks.

Obviously going to knock him out. I don't think Broner wants to fight against Matthysse. Know it's going to be harder than against Maidana.

Anyway, I hope Lucas wins and fights Broner next. I've wanted to see that fight for a long time.
