Lucas Matthysse (37-3, 34KOs) is still looking to make a move to the welterweight limit of 147-pounds in 2016.
Matthysse is back next Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California when he challenges undefeated Viktor Postol of Ukraine. The fight will have the vacant WBC junior welterweight championship on the line.
This is Matthysse's second chance at a world crown. He lost a twelve round decision to Danny Garcia in 2013 on the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Saul Alvarez pay-per-view in Las Vegas.
Matthysse's goal is to become a world champion at junior welterweight before he makes his planned move to a higher weight. Many of his past opponents like Garcia, Lamont Peterson, Zab Judah, Devon Alexander and a few others have already moved up to the welterweight limit.
Most of the big names are at welterweight, including Manny Pacquiao, Garcia, Keith Thurman, Amir Khan, Timothy Bradley and if he returns in the future, Floyd Mayweather Jr.
"First, I want to be a world champion at junior welterweight. Even though I am 33-years-old, it still doesn't cost me too much to make weight in this division. But next year I will probably move up to welterweight, because there are big names such as Thurman, Danny Garcia and Pacquiao," Matthysse told Fox Deportes.
