Mauricio Herrera Open To Facing Lucas Matthysse Next
By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes
Following his close points to loss to WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia, junior welterweight contender Mauricio Herrera said he was open to idea of facing another tough top contender in his very next fight - and specifically named Lucas Matthysse (34-3, 32KOs).
Matthysse has a tentative return date of April 26th, which makes a Herrera fight a tough match to make with the short time span. But a summer showdown could be possible.
Herrera (20-4, 7KOs) recently signed a contract with Golden Boy Promotions, making the Matthysse fight a realistic possibility.

Herrera's chin is made of iron and tested against the best of his division, including Ruslan Provodnikov, Mike Alvarado and Garcia.
Matthysse, like Herrera, lost a twelve round decision in his last fight to Garcia.
