Photos: Matthysse Grinding Hard as Garcia Clash Nears

By Chris Robinson

Exclusive photos from the training camp of WBC interim junior welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse (34-2, 32 KO’s) in Indio, Calif. as he prepares for his Sept. 14 bout with WBA/WBC champion Danny Garcia.

Matthysse spent the early stages of his camp in his native Buenos Aires, Argentina before relocating to Southern California last month with his trainer Luis ‘Cuty’ Barrera and the rest of his team.

Training out of the Indio Boys and Girls Club, Matthysse has gotten in some sparring the past few weeks with WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley and upcoming prospects Jose Benavidez Jr. and Frankie Gomez.

A man of few words, Matthysse seems completely at peace with such a huge fight just a week away.

Garcia-Matthysse takes place on Showtime pay per view from the MGM Grand as part of “The One” event.

Lucas hits harder and has more experience. He is more battle tested and will prove he has the total package in this fight. He's taking Danny out in the late rounds or will bank more rounds for a decision. Danny…
