Matthysse Says Garcia Will Crumble From The Damage

By Elisinio Castillo

Junior welterweight Lucas Matthysse (34-2, 32KOs) is predicting that WBC/WBA champion Danny Garcia (26-0, 16KOs) will eventually fold from the power-punching pressure. Matthysse is planning a two-fisted assault on Garcia when they face each other on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.  Garcia has a good chin, but Matthysse says it will crack once the punch start landing.

"Once I start putting my hands on Garcia, I'm positive that he won't be able to take it. I have full confidence that I'm going to win. I'm not worried about the referee or the judges, nothing is worrying me," said Matthysse during a radio appearance in Argentina.

The boxer's trainer, Luis 'Cuti' Barrera, says the right hand will be their main weapon.

"We have been training to throw more right hands for the last two weeks - both the hook and the cross. And we realized that we have a gun. That may be one of the keys to victory against Garcia, who we do not underestimate. But Lucas is well trained and mentally he is very prepared and has every opportunity to beat him," Barrera said.
