Sources: Lucas Matthysse Signs With Al Haymon

by Rick Reeno

According to multiple sources in Argentina, hard-punching junior welterweight Lucas Matthysse (33-2, 31KOs) signed a deal with influental adviser/manager Al Haymon. Matthysse is facing IBF junior welterweight champion Lamont Peterson (31-1-1,, 16KOs) in a catch-weight bout on May 18th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Going in Haymon's direction would certainly assist Matthysse, the WBC's mandatory challenger, in his quest to secure a fight with full WBC champ Danny Garcia, also handled by Haymon. However, Matthysse has a tough task ahead with Peterson.

Haymon signed Matthysse because he realizes he is the baddest man at 140 pounds. Happy for Matthysse. Hope he destroys Peterson. WAR! :headbang:

I think Al signed Matthysse so he can make a mega event out of Swift vs Matthysse and also make a huge profit, it's not to protect anyone, Swift would fight Matthysse and beat him I think, Matthysse ain't no…

Because the Watson twins needed more air time to rubber neck and dad needed someone else to whisper sweet nothing's into their ear and point at them for look at the camera like some kind of gay **** freak show.
