Mauricio Herrera Tabs Lucas Matthysse To Defeat Postol

By Miguel Rivera

Junior welterweight contender Mauricio Herrera is backing Lucas Matthysse to come out victorious on October 3rd when he faces undefeated Ukrainian Viktor Postol for the vacant WBC junior welterweight title at StubHub Carson, California.

Mauricio (22-5, 7 KOs) has been on the shelf recovering from severe cuts that were suffered in his most recent bout, against Henry Lundy in July. Herrera has already told his promoter that he wants to face Matthysse if he comes out victorious. Both fighters are handled by Golden Boy Promotions. 

"They're both good. Postol from what little I've seen, he looks strong, he's tall, and he can use his distance well. He can cause problems if he fights outside and stays smart. But if he makes any mistakes, Matthysse will punish him. I think the hunger of Matthysse will help him achieve the victory," Herrera told ESPN Deportes.

Herrera would like to fight in December, but if Matthysse wins and that fight can be made, then Herrera is willing to wait until early next year for that fight.

"I was unable to train because the cut was very large. I'm waiting for the green light so I can train to come back. I'm on medication and everything, but I am excited because they told me there could be a fight with Matthysse if he wins. And I'll be ready to start the new year with this fight," Herrera said.

Somewhere right now Angel is looking for a paternity kit, doing a line of coke, and cursing at an old lady.
