Molina Vows Matthysse War: You Will Get Monies Worth!

Los Angeles, California -  On Saturday April 26th, 2014 power punching Argentinian Lucas Matthysse, 34-3, 32KOs will be in the ring with John Molina, 27-3, 22 KOs in what looks to be an all-out war between two full-fledged KO artists.

Molina will be looking for his third consecutive victory en route to a second world title attempt, while Mathysse is bouncing back from his first professional loss.

The match up will serve as a co-featured bout to the Thurman vs. Diaz WBA Interim-Welterweight world championship and will take place at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Matthysse is the clear cut favorite, but with both fighters in the midst of rejuvenating their careers, you can expect an all-out slug fest.

Matthysse is looking to gain some momentum after losing to Danny Garcia on September 14th. John Molina is coming off of two straight knockout victories, but Matthysse will be tougher to put on the mat than his last two opponents.

Molina will be moving up to to the junior welterweight division.

When asked if Molina had to make any changes in his workout regimen because of the change, the fighter stated that the 140 pound limit would be easier and actually more natural for him to make.

"What I believe the fans are missing is that they tend to think Lucas is the bigger guy. Physically I'm 5'10 and a half with a 73 inch reach, Lucas Matthysse is 5'6 and a half with a 69 inch reach... Physically he won't be the bigger man that night."

Molina, a determined banger, who can crack with either hand and looks for the KO every second of every round added, “I didn’t have the expensive amateur career like a Lucas Matthysse had. I learned on the job.” Despite what the critics say, he believes Lucas Matthysse expects a close fight and that fans would be “getting their monies worth on April 26th.”

One thing is for sure - two big power punchers are going to square off on April 26th, and it's probably not going to end pretty… no matter who wins.

John Molina has so much to gain from a victory on Saturday, so Matthysse can expect an all-out brawl for as long as it lasts.

Ready to see Lucas back in action after that one sided defeat to Danny. Hopefully Thurman get an explosive win to earn him the Porter bout.

Don't see this lasting more than 5 Rounds. Lucas by KO.
