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. Although he doesn't have a big a knockout ration, Herrera loves to brawl. 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.

Matthysse lost to Garcia largely because of the damage to his right eye. The shot that caused it was almost a rake. I wouldn't count Lucas out because of that loss. It was a close fight, and Hererra would not…
