Matthysse Hopes Dallas Doesn't Run, Stands and Fights

By Ryan Burton

WBC interim junior welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse recently appeared on The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene's official audio show. Matthysse faces Mike Dallas on Saturday at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Matthysse said that he is ready to
shine on Saturday.

"I had a great camp.  I am on weight and ready to go.  We are just waiting for the weigh in and then to step in the ring on Saturday," Matthysse stated. 

My fellow host Luis Sandoval asked the Argentine if he feels that he is being avoided by the division's top fighters.

"I want to fight the big fights and I want to fight the best but what you say I think is true.  These guys don't want to fight me.  I don't know why that is but I hope to fight the best guys out there," said Matthysse.

Matthysse admits to not knowing much about his opponent but said that he trained hard for the fight and is not looking past him. He said that he hopes Dallas comes to fight because he wants to put on a great show for the fans.

"I don't know very much about Dallas.  I saw a video of him but that is about it so I will go in the ring and adjust to what he does in the ring and take it from there. From what I have seen he is a good boxer.  I won't underestimate him.  Hopefully he comes to fight and not just stay away from me. Hopefully he tries to take the title from me so the fans get a great fight to watch," Matthysse told us on The Boxing Lab.
