Photos and Video: Lucas Matthysse (138.5) vs. Mike Dallas Jr. (139.5) Official Weigh in

Earlier today, inside of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, interim WBC junior welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse (32-2, 30 KO’s) weighed in ahead of his clash with Mike Dallas Jr. (19-2-1, 8 KO’s).

Matthysse came in at 138.5 pounds while Dallas Jr. was a pound heavier at 139.5 pounds. The two men meet in the main event of a Showtime-televised tripleheader.

Matthysse has been clamoring for a clash with WBA/WBC junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia, but he will now have to settle for a dance with Dallas, who is trained by the highly-regarded Virgil Hunter.

As for Garcia, he is lined up for a Feb. 9 meeting with former two-division champion Zab Judah, who was present inside of the building for today’s weigh-in.

Other notables in attendance included WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi and longtime Showtime analyst Al Bernstein.

If Matthysse can’t get lined up with a fight against Garcia, don’t be surprised if he ends up faces his Argentinean countryman Marcos Maidana sometime in 2013.
