LAS VEGAS, NV - Throughout fight week WBC interim-junior welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse insisted his focus was on beating Mike Dallas and he did so in emphatic fashion, finishing Dallas out with a highlight reel one punch knockout in the first round.

All week long members of the media asked Matthysse who he wanted to face after the Dallas fight. The name he kept mentioned was the full WBC champion Danny Garcia who faces Zab Judah on February 9th, although Garcia is rumored to have suffered a training injury and reportedly plans to withdraw from the contest.

After the fight Matthysse reiterated his desire to face Garcia.

"Well I did my part by beating Dallas now Garcia has to beat Judah. If that happens hopefully he will fight me next," Matthysse stated.

I brought a smile to Matthysse's face when I asked him if he thought his emphatic knockout might have hurt his chances in securing a fight against Garcia.

"I know he saw the knockout and I'm sure it scared him. If he wants to be the best he needs to fight me," Matthysse told BoxingScene.

[QUOTE=-BORICUA-]ajose really?[/QUOTE] Yes REALLY, Ajose was the WBC #1 for a long time and always seemed to get looked over everytime; first Morales vs. Cano, then Morales vs Garcia and then Garcia just ran away with it and let Matthysse take care of the hard work!
