This fight promises to be a good one. It has been added to the undercard of Mayweather-Alvarez matchup. Sept 14th. What are your thoughts on these two super lightweights?

I think if Garcia stands in front of Matthysse, he gets knocked out. He needs to move.

I think this fight will be more entertaining than the main event. Matthysse will come forward and press Garcia to fight. The edge in power goes to Matthysse, but the edge in quickness and boxing skills goes to Garcia. I'm looking forward to this one, I think it will be a fight of the year candidate if it doesn't end too early.

Agreed. Definite FOTY candidate.

In Garcia's last fight with Judah, Garcia showed signs of being impacted by Judah's power(an oxymoron). Undefeated fighters are fearless so Garcia will be relentless but I am not sure that he has the chin. Matthysse is brutal, and if he see's degradation in his opponent, he ends the fight. Overall, this will be a great fight with a knockout to end the match.

Definitely going to be a great fight. I think Garcia is a very slick fighter and even I have trouble giving him the credit he deserves. I feel that Garcia is skilled and rugged enough to beat Matthyse. The problem for Garcia is that Matthyse is relentless and has some serious firepower. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Garcia wins but Matthysse only needs to get one good shot to turn the fight around and he's pretty good at making that happen.

Default Danny Garcia

My apologies for screwing up the name. Wasn't paying that close attention, and probably had another fighter on my mind when I created this thread.

Default Matthysse exposed

I had never seen Matthysse fight before, just heard of the awesome power he brings. Garcia felt Lucas was one-dimensional and he was right. I supposed Lucas will always have a puncher's chance in his fights. Good win for Garcia.

Hell of a fight. Danny has a solid chin. It's funny how so many people picked him to lose this fight.

But as Danny said last night, "I'm a Philadelphia fighter." And that's all there is to it.
