Kendall Holt-Danny Garcia Possible, Matthysse is Out

by Rick Reeno

Promoter Gary Shaw has advised BoxingScene.com that junior welterweight Lucas Matthysse is not going to fight Kendall Holt (27-4, 15KOs) on October 15 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The show will be headlined by Bernard Hopkins vs. Chad Dawson. Matthysse, for whatever reason, doesn't want to take the fight. Shaw is talking with Golden Boy Promotions about a possible match between Holt and undefeated Danny Garcia (21-0, 14KOs).

"I don't know the reason. [Golden Boy] told me he can't take the fight, so now I'm talking with them about a possible fight with Holt and Danny Garcia," Shaw told BoxingScene.com.

Soon as the real champ Tim Bradley got up and got in his ass, he *****ed up and that was that. Then he lost to a bum from south Africa, he sucks......
