Staples Center, Los Angeles - Lucas Matthysse (31-2, 29KOs) went to war with Humberto Soto (59-8-2, 35KOs) and took him out in five rounds to capture the vacant WBC Continental Americas super lightweight title

The fight began a little more technical than expected, but it was Soto who turned up the heat in the final minute. The bombs were flying by both fighters in the second. They continued to trade punches in the third. Soto at this point was getting rocked back by the harder shots of Matthysse. In the final minute, Soto got in his shots and opened up a small cut near the corner of Matthysse's right eye.

Matthysse was landing the better punches in the fourth, although Soto was holding his own and answering back every time. At the end of the fifth, Matthysse landed a combination of punches, with huge right hands, that had Soto reeling back and put him down. He was barely able to make it up and walk back to his corner. Soto's corner stopped the fight before the start of the sixth.

I'm waiting for a thread to pop out "Pacquiao is ducking Matthysse" just like "Pacquiao ducked Soto."

GBP needs to put Matthysse vs Maidana on their Sept 15 card.

That pretty much sums up the whole fight. Soto had average power to begin with,moving up in weight class and going toe-to-toe against one of the hardest punchers in the division cost him. After being slowed down by vicious body shots,the corner(not Soto) had no choice but to stop the fight. Soto ...

At the end it was the stronger and bigger fighter who was the victor. Don't forget that Mathysse has been the boxer consolidated for long time in the 140 #s besides Lucas has big power while Soto new arrival to this division and normally a fighter who started 3-4 divisions below doesn't carry al ...
