On Saturday night, there was no shortage of boxing luminaries inside of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada for Lucas Matthysse’s crushing first-round knockout over Mike Dallas Jr.

Such notables in the building included former champions Zab Judah and Shane Mosley, junior welterweight contender Karim Mayfield, former WBO female super bantamweight champion Ana Julaton, junior middleweight contender Alfredo Angulo, rising lightweight Sharif Bogere, and former two-division titlist Jorge Linares.

Striking a conversation with Linares, I quickly discovered that much has changed for the Venezuelan-born prizefighter.

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.
