Lucas Matthysse Withdraws From Erik Morales Clash

By Rick Reeno

Editor's Note - BoxingScene.com has received confirmation that a virus infection is the cause for Matthysse's withdrawal.

Sources out of Argentina, with close ties to junior welterweight Lucas Mathhysse, have confirmed to BoxingScene.com that Matthysse has withdrawn from his upcoming fight with Erik Morales, scheduled to take place on the Floyd Mayweather-Victor Ortiz undercard on September 17th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Matthysse and Morales were going to fight for the vacant WBC junior welterweight title. There are different stories going around as to the exact reason for Matthysse's withdrawal.

A member of the boxer's team confirmed his withdrawal, but refused to discuss the exact reason, which one source stated was an injury and another states was an illness. Matthysse had replaced countryman Jorge Barrios, who withdrew due to visa issues.
