The world has been split when it comes to these fights, Danny Garcia the true 140lbs champion will defend his title against the fan favorite action packed Argentinean Lucas Matthysse, on the Spet.14, the undercard of the mega match-up between the best fighter in the sport Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, I can't remember a time when someones nickname made it to the headline of the fight, but this the fight the fans asked for and they got it.
Many feel that the Garcia vs Matthysse fight will be bigger than the main event. We took a poll and Garcia vs Mathysse bout is more spoken about and anticipated than Pacquiao vs Rios. "The reason why fans are so intrigued is because, you have a tale of the explosive unstoppable force, that is Matthysse, vs the champion boxer who has some power and does enough to win every time he steps into a ring. Who would you pick?" said longtime boxing expert Sylvester Thomas, who was known as the 'Seal', stated that this is what makes a great fight.
"That's what you look for when you make a great bout, the unknown, the mystery, of two fighters, the irresistible force vs the unmovable object. You can say Garcia amateur background is solid enough to give him the nod, but then again on the other side, what do we know about Matthysse, he's strong, confident and committed to the knockout, but he's tricky he knows how to mask his power until the right moments."
Thomas wouldn't choose a winner, he just knows this fight has the most intrigue and many fans would agree, since Mayweather has hardly been pushed to the brink. Many feel Canelo just isn't ready, for the experience of Money Mayweather, but that's why watch the fights.
