By Chris Robinson

With WBA/WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia pulling out of his Feb. 9 date with Zab Judah at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the entire junior welterweight division is feeling the effect of the fight being rescheduled.

And while Garcia now sets his sights towards an April 27th clash with Judah, one man who had been eyeing the Philadelphia native, interim WBC champion Lucas Matthysse, now seems to be without an even more unclear forecast of what his 2013 calendar year will encompass.

Matthysse impressed this past weekend with a chilling fist round knockout over Mike Dallas Jr. inside of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

On Saturday, Jan. 26, inside of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, interim WBC junior welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse (33-2, 31 KO’s) made short work of Mike Dallas Jr., (19-3-1, 8 KO’s), chopping him down in under one round.

After taking his time to study his opponent, Matthysse connected on Dallas with a thudding right hand and a follow-up left that had his 26-year old foe out  on his face and unable to continue.

Matthysse now looks towards bigger bounty, but it remains to be seen if the 30-year old Agentinean will get the bouts he desires most. For several months, Matthysse has called for a match with WBA/WBC champion Danny Garcia, who is presently scheduled for a Feb. 9 date against former champion Zab Judah.
