Article: Lucas Matthysse: Potential fights for 'The Machine'

528 Views 14 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  The Undefeated Gaul
Dubbed 'The Machine', Argentina's Lucas Matthysse sent out a statement of intent last night with a three round destruction of the usually durable IBF world titlist Lamont Peterson. After a cagey fist round whereby Peterson opted to box from range, Matthysse closed the gap in the second and dropped Peterson with a right to the body followed by a glancing left hook.

Peterson saw out the round but again found himself on the canvas in the third after a beautiful short left hook landed directly on his chin and had him struggling to rise. After being felled again seconds later, again from a glancing left hook referee Steve Smoger stepped inside to end the carnage and a new star was born.

The result has Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Shaefer excitingly labeling the Argentinian 'the new Manny Pacquaio' as his 140lb rivals Danny Garcia and Amir Khan watched on from ringside.

With an unofficial tournament by GBP supposedly resulting in a Matthysse v Garcia fight in September, fight fans are salivating from the lips as to numerous potential fights 'The Machine' could be involved in in the near future.

Good article. Matthysse vs Garcia is definitely the best fight that can be made at 140 and I give the edge to Lucas. Garcia can and will connect and i think it will give us a better idea of the chin Lucas has, but I still think the ref or Danny's dad stops the fight around the 10th. If that comes to fruition, Khan is absolutely fucked since he is supposed to take on the winner. He has the heart to get in there with The Machine, but that would probably end his career and in brutal fashion.

Ether way, winner of this fight gets Mayweather next May and I would have no issue with that.
