Matthysse's Trainer: If No Bad Eye, We Would KO Garcia

Trainer Luis "Cuty" Barrera is confident his boxer, Lucas Matthysse (34-3, 32KOs), would have scored a knockout over Danny Garcia (27-0, 16KOs) if his right eye wasn't damaged in the sixth round.

On September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Matthysse was ahead 58-56 on the scorecards after six, but during that sixth round is when Garcia landed a good punch that practically closed Matthysse's eye. The entire fight changed from that point forward, and Garcia fought his way to a twelve round unanimous decision to retain his WBC/WBA junior welterweight titles.

Even with the eye injury, Barrera thought his boxer did enough to win a decision.

"Personally I thought we won by two or three points. If not for the eye, Lucas would have won by KO. I believe we only lost the fourth, seventh, eighth and tenth rounds. When Lucas came to my corner I told him 'stay calm, they are not going to rob us, I'm sure that we won by one or two points.' But that's not what happened," Barrera said.

A rematch with Garcia is not likely. The Philidelphia boxer is exploring a move to the welterweight division.

"I think Garcia is moving up and the [WBC] title will become vacant again. We'll fight [for the vacant belt], against Amir Khan or anybody else. We are always going to be near the top. Lucas assured me that he will become a 140-pound champion," Barrera said.

Enough excuses. Garcia won, he is better than Lucas. Danny Garcia and Angel Garcia are there to stay. Deal With It!!

[QUOTE=Frank Ducketts]I don't get your response to his post. Are you bothered by what he said about Matthysse's cry baby fans? Grus is only referring to the cry baby fans.[/QUOTE] I don't know what he was tripping about but most likely he is some poster from a while ago that got the business...

Matthysse has always been a warrior, to bad his trainer is making him look like an excuse maker. Bottom line, Garcia was the superior fighter.

Back from banned camp to see that JSFD26 is alive which is good to hear. I imagine he definitely cried as Matthysse got his ass beat :lol1:

[QUOTE=joesaiditstrue]it would help if you knew what you were talking about, instead you're constantly making people throw up in their mouth every time you post lol :bottle:[/QUOTE] What's the matter? Did I hurt your feelings? Truth hurts.... Now go eat some grapes.
