Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse may not be the world’s best fighter but he always delivers some kind of excitement inside of the ring.

On Saturday night, Matthysse (37-4, 34 KO’s) came up short against tough and tall Ukrainian Viktor Postol (28-0, 12 KO’s) inside of the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. on HBO’s airwaves. Matthysse started strong but faded late and was dropped and stopped in the 10th round.

On Saturday night, Oct. 3, inside of the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., Ukraine native Viktor Postol came away with the biggest victory over his career in stopping Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse in the 10th round of their junior welterweight clash.

Matthysse, 33, took the early lead in the HBO-televised contest but it was Postol, 31, who weathered the storm and began controlling the distance and pace of the matchup. Matthysse was always pressing and appeared to rock Postol several times in the seventh round but he simply had trouble dealing with the size and length of his foe.

Looks like Philadelphia’s Danny Garcia has elected to relinquish his WBC junior welterweight title that he captured in March of 2012 after defeating Erik Morales.

Garcia’s last two contests, a majority-decision over Lamont Peterson in April and a 2nd round knockout over Rod Salka this past August, were fought above the junior welterweight limit of 140 pounds and those in the industry knew well ahead of time that it was time for the young champion to move up.

The HBO-televised showdown may not have lived up to the wild expectations in terms of pure savagery, but it was an excellent battle of attrition and will that was won by Matthysse, whose stock is once again soaring high.

Lucas Matthysse once again proved his worth on Saturday night, winning a hard-fought, gritty battle against Russia’s Ruslan Provodnikov over 12 rounds inside of the Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, New York.

Matthysse showed himself to be the more versatile fighter in a matchup many expected to be a Fight of the Year candidate.

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.

As his clash with Danny Garcia inches closer, WBC interim junior welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse (34-2, 32 KO’s) has been putting in some work at the Boys and Girls Club in Indio, Calif.

The facility is ran by former contender Joel Diaz, who trains WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley. Matthysse has been putting in some rounds with Bradley and moments ago it was revealed that the Argentinean has also been going to work with upcoming prospect Jose Benavidez Jr.

“Good sparring today with Lucas Matthysee in Coachella Ca,” stated Benavidez’s father and trainer Jose Sr. on Facebook.
