Photos: Matthysse Training Hard, Aims To KO Peterson

Text by Chris Robinson / Photos courtesy of Matías Erbin (Team Matthysse)

Exclusive photos from the training camp of WBC interim junior welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse, as he wraps up training camp in Junin, Argentina, ahead of his May 18th clash with IBF titlist Lamont Peterson.


 
Peterson vs. Matthysse will take place from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City with Showtime televising the proceedings.


 
For this particular camp, Matthysse has been going several rounds with his countryman and former world title challenger Sebastian Lujan, who is serving as his chief sparring partner.


 
Although Peterson’s IBF belt won’t be at stake, as the fight is being held at a catch weight of 141 pounds, this clash marks the biggest opportunity of the 30-year old Matthysse’s career, as an eventual showdown with WBA/WBC champion Danny Garcia could emerge if he is successful.
