Luis ‘Cuty’ Barrera is currently overseeing sparring between his charge Lucas Matthysse (35-3, 33 KOs) and fellow countryman Luis Carlos Abregú (36-1, 29 KOs) in Junín, Argentina.  Matthysse and his camp fly to the United States on August 30 for their fight with Mexican banger, Roberto Ortíz (31-0-1, 24 KOs).

Barrera told BoxingScene that although he sees Ortíz as a good opponent who punches hard, he would have preferred a rematch with Danny García instead.

“We wanted to fight García, we’re in good shape and Lucas wants to fight for the world title but Golden Boy is the boss and they want us to fight Roberto Ortiz," Barrera said.

“I think that he [García] is doing his thing over there in the US, and we’re far away in Argentina.  It seems he doesn’t want to fight us again, I respect his decision.” 

The fight with Ortiz takes place on a Showtime televised date of September 6th from Cincinnati, Ohio.

[QUOTE=Since 1985]It's as simple as that. Herrera is more deserving of a rematch with DSG than Matthysse is.[/QUOTE] Spot on bro, harrera did way better. Matt had maybe 3 good rounds. Garcia whooped on him, it was slightly embarrassing for the ko machine

Is that the meatball that said it

It amazes me how so many fans...novice i should add actually believe that just because a challenger looses a fight that he is automatically entitled to a re-match. If the Champion wants it thats a different story but this schoolyard "I want a do-over" mentality is just laughable. Bottom line: It'...
