WBC: Danny Garcia-Lucas Matthysse To Be Ordered

By Miguel Rivera

The World Boxing Council has advised BoxingScene.com that a mandatory fight between junior welterweights Danny Garcia (25-0, 16KOs) and Lucas Matthysse (32-2, 30KOs) will be ordered in the coming weeks - provided both boxers win their upcoming fights.

Matthysse is scheduled to defend his WBC interim-junior welterweight belt at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on Saturday, January 26, against challenger Mike Dallas Jr. Meanwhile, Garcia will defend his WBC full title, and the WBA belt, against former champion Zab Judah on Saturday, February 9 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

According to the WBC, after these two fights are completed - they plan to issue an order directing the winners of the two matches to face each other. If either boxer refuses to move forward with the fight - the party will "forfeit their title" says the WBC.

Both Garcia and Matthysse are promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.

I like both guys, so I don't really care who wins but I just want to see this fight. I'd put my money on Mattyse though I think he's a better overall fighter and I think he has a higher…
