Matthysse: I Would Go To 147 For Floyd Mayweather Jr.

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Junior welterweight destroyer Lucas Matthysse (34-2, 32KOs) is very focused on his run at 140-pounds. Golden Boy Promotions is trying to match him in a mandatory fight against WBC/WBA champion Danny Garcia on September 7th.

In the past the idea of an Argentine super-fight has been discussed with Matthysse facing countryman Marcos Maidana. Matthysse was open to doing the match but had no intention of moving up to the welterweight division to make it happen.

While Maidana was not enough to twist his arm for a move to 147, Matthysse states that a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs), the WBC champion champion, would certainly be the right opportunity to invade the welterweight division.

"Yes, of course [I would take that fight]. Hopefully I get offered that fight, but I would be willing move up to 147 and fight Mayweather," Matthysse told BoxingScene.com.
