Lucas Matthysse Gives The Green Light For Herrera and Cano

By Miguel Rivera

Argentine puncher Lucas Matthysse (37-4, 34KOs) is training back home and waiting to find out who he'll face on May 7th, as part of the HBO Pay-Per-View undercard to the Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez vs. Amir Khan showdown at the T-Mobile Center in Las Vegas.

Matthysse wants to return in a big way after suffering the first knockout loss of his career last October at the hands of Viktor Postol in their WBC 140-pound title fight.

Matthysse's next fight will take place at the welterweight limit of 147-pounds.

According to his manager Mario Arano, they have accepted both of the leading candidates - Pablo Cesar Cano and Mauricio Herrera. Both Cano and Herrera have also accepted Matthysse. They are waiting for Golden Boy Promotions to finalize the details and let them know which of the two fighters will be across the ring in May.

"Those are the two opponents that we have. We are told that the two have accepted the fight, but we have nothing confirmed. We never chose an opponent, we always fight with whoever the promoter tells us. And Matthysse said yes to Cano and Herrera. They told us that the two are available and they are going to see who the network likes more," Arono told ESPN Deportes.

"Lucas hasbeen  doing work for 35 days in Trelew and is coming on Saturday to Junín and then we will continue working with the team. I have to thank Golden Boy giving him the opportunity to fight on the same card as Canelo. This is a great opportunity because everyone will be watching Canelo. Lucas has fought under Mayweather, Canelo, so he's used to that sort of thing and feels good about the fight. He wants to show everyone that the fight with Postol was an accident and a bad night, and he will be prepared as usual to demonstrate that he is alive as ever and not looking to go away."

I'd rather Matts/Herrera. No need to waste time with Cano.
