Junior welterweight contender Lucas Matthysse (33-2, 31KOs), the mandatory challenger to WBC/WBA champion Danny Garcia, has not taken his eye off Garcia. But the two fighters are going in different directions. Garcia faces former champion Zab Judah on April 27th in Brooklyn, and there are ongoing discussions to have Matthysse challenge IBF champion Lamont Peterson on May 18th.

"The World Boxing Council has ordered us to fight before the year's end. Now I am waiting for the outcome of his fight with Zab Judah on April 27. And I repeat, I want the full title," said Matthysse.

"Hopefully my next fight is in America. They like the way I fight. They said I could be the best pound for pound fighter at 140 and the World Boxing Council recently appointed me as the boxer of the month. More and more people are going to support me in the U.S.. And they know I didn't lose those fights against Judah and Alexander."

[QUOTE=The Weebler II]by way of hometown robbery i.e. he didn't lose[/QUOTE] The Alexander fight especially. I really believe in Matthysse. I think he beats any 140 lb. fighter put in front of him at this point. War Lucas!

I think people are seriously overrating Peterson. Peterson is a good fighter no doubt. his pressure and will to win are his biggest assests but he is a come forward fighter. let's just set aside names and look at it like this. you have a come foward fighter, takes a lot of punches and who...

Well since Broner won't man up...I don't expect GBP to launch Danny 'HYPE" Garcia to fight Lucas either..
