Everyone talks about how this is going to be a great match up and I agree. The only problem I see is Danny Garcia will have met his match against Lucas Matthysse. Don't get me wrong, Danny is a great fighter and he's facing a great fighter. This fight will be explosive. I do see Lucas walking away with a win this coming Saturday Night.
Lucas only two losses came from Devon Alexander and Zab Judah. Although he dropped both guys, he could not finish them. Why? Because they are boxers and they move lateral on you all night long. Lucas has serious problems with lateral type boxers that can take a pretty good punch. He has to chase them and because of that he doesn't get his full torque in his punches. He is punching on the move and not planted.
Danny Garcia has a great left hook and right hand. His downfall is being flat footed and wanting to trade. He cannot afford to do that against Lucas because that is what he wants. Lucas has a pretty good chin and the outcome will be who falls first. I hate to say it, but Lucas has more power and he will hurt Danny if he decides to trade with him. If Danny wants to win, then he better box the brakes off of Lucas and DO NOT TRADE PUNCHES.
Danny Boxes ... He Wins
Danny Trades .. He Loses
Let's see what Game Plan Danny comes with Saturday. Then come back and comment on this post.
