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.
