Despite asking several boxing luminaries for their thoughts on the Floyd Mayweather vs. Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez super fight, I’ve had trouble finding anyone who gives the young champion from Jalisco, Mexico a clear edge in the matchup.

Mayweather’s combination of ring acumen, experience, and talent are just too much for most people to overlook despite all of Alvarez’s upside as a prizefighter.

During a recent swing through the Indio Boys and Girls Club in Southern California, I was able to get some input on the fight from one of the hottest names in the sport, Lucas Matthysse, and the Argentinean’s answers did surprise me a bit.

The WBC interim junior welterweight champion at 140 pounds, Matthysse will face off with WBA/WBC champion Danny Garcia on the Mayweather-Alvarez undercard on Sept. 14 inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

When asked who he favors in a Mayweather-Alvarez duel, Matthysse hesitated just a bit.

The training camp of WBC interim champion Lucas Matthysse (34-2, 32 KO’s) is in full swing down in Buenos Aires, Argentina, ahead of his Sept. 14 date with WBA/WBC champion Danny Garcia (26-0, 16 KO’s) in Las Vegas.

HustleBoss.com caught up with Matthysse’s trainer Luis “Cuty” Barrera and got some insight into how camp is shaping up thus far.

“I’ve been with Lucas for ten years,” Barrera stated. “He doesn’t think about the rival; he thinks to train hard. Of course we respect Danny Garcia. I study the positive and negative things [about] Garcia, but I want to train hard with Lucas for this important fight.”

Barrera revealed that Matthysse begins his daily regimen at 7 in the morning with his strength and conditioning coach Gerardo Pereyra, whom he works with until 9 a.m.

“I saw Matthysse and he is very happy with the fight,” revealed the insider. “He speaks in the ring; he doesn’t like to speak on Twitter.”
