Matthysse on Molina: I Don't Think This Will Last Long

LOS ANGELES - StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. will play host to a Showtime televised tripleheader, where Keith "One Time" Thurman defends his interim WBA World Welterweight Championship against former World Lightweight titleholder Julio "The Kidd" Diaz in the main event.

In the co-feature, Lucas "The Machine" Matthysse returns in a 10-round matchup against hard-hitting Californian John Molina.

"Molina is the kind of fighter I respect and always want to compete against," said Matthysse. "He shows up to fight and we're going to give the fans the kind of show they want to see. I don't think it will last long, but it will be something to see while it does."

"I'm excited to showcase myself against someone that I consider to be one of the best fighters in the world at 140 pounds," said Molina. "I am very well prepared to come in on fight night and do what I do best, and that is to be victorious."

Popular Trelew, Chubut, Argentina native Lucas "The Machine" Matthysse (34-3, 32 KOs) has been knocking opponents out for nearly 10 years, becoming one of boxing's most feared competitors in the process. The former interim WBC Junior Welterweight World Champion, Matthysse's last 11 wins have ended before the final bell, and after a 12-round decision loss to Danny Garcia in a terrific championship bout last September, the 31-year-old is more determined than ever to take matters out of the judges' hands.

Covina, California's John Molina (27-3, 22 KOs) has plenty of dynamite in his fists as well, earning him a reputation as an exciting fighter ever since he turned pro in 2006. In July 2013, the 31-year-old added to his legend with a dramatic come-from-behind last-round knockout of previously unbeaten Mickey Bey, Jr. In his most recent bout last November, the hard-hitting Molina halted Jorge Pimentel in two rounds.

[QUOTE=Weebler I;14370294]Bro, you can't give me red k. When someone thinks enough of your posts to give you green k, then you can think about giving red to someone. Anyhow, I'm not sure if Molina Jr. has a puncher's chance…
