Nobody cleans out the divison easily. He could very well lose his next fight. People just love to hype up puncher’s. He’s a good fighters but not unbeatable.

Guevara > mathyse has fought more elite fighters than almost all 140rs out there appear from Judah and Marquez …mathyse was robed clearly against Judah and Alexander ,btw both of them touched canvas when they fought mathyse ….at least he has a much better record than a hbo made superstar broner who fought a b comp until now at best!

Judah and Alexander beat Mathysse, Peterson was just that one. We need to see a little more Mathysse at a different level. Then decide if he is the next superstar one fight against a known fighters doesn’t make you the best. Remember Mathysse has lost to two champions.

Danny Garcia was just shocked like we all were. I am sure he will fight anybody put in front of him including matthyse. Remember who is undefeated out of the two of them.

not for nothing but descriptions of Matthysse’s punching power sound eerily similar to that of Cheato Trinidud’s(?). perhaps Garcia should hire Nazim to check his wraps before the next bout. considering there isn’t a single PR corner who is qualified to do so, e.g., Margarito’s severe and permanent BEATDOWN of Cotto.

Pacman would get knocked out!!

Listen, this Matthysse punching power is pure hype. He doesn’t touch you and you sleep. The guy swings from his heels or gets his entire body weight behind his shots. He’s a fierce puncher, like Pacquiao. His punches are delivered with INTENT! Watch tapes of this Julian Jackson guy. THAT is punching power. But Matthysse is still a KO artist. But not by magical KO power. By FEROCITY! He gotta fight the Pacman!!!!!

Garcia-Matthysse is 1 of the best fights that can be way Garcia ducks Mattysse..both real fighters that duck no 1…..winner could be floyd opponent….floyd should take Canelo fight at 54…box his ears off in winning 10 of 12 rounds,mite have 2 overcome 1 or 2 scary moments like in mosely fight..then winner of this fight….winner will be in devastating fashion n set things up perfect…i like Mattysse by ko in 6…but will get rocked along the way…other than Canelo,floyds best opponents available r fighters that move up from 140

Peterson was OVERTRAINED, but that’s not Matthysse’s fault, he did what he was supposed to do. Garcia WILL AVOID him!! Hi RISK/Lo REWARD for them.

Mick the Marmalizer – Garcia stripped?? LOL Hasn’t Canelo been avoiding his #1 mandatory Cuban Lara for almost two years fighting anyone he wants as long as they are smaller, older and worn without getting stripped??? but that’s OK to these Chihuahuas.. because he’s Mexican.. LOL what fkn hypocrates and they wonder why no one in Boxing likes them???

Somebody’s hype machine is fully on now. This is the third article here where suddenly Danny García is afraid of facing Matthyse and has been dodging him for years. Stop it with the BS.

Posted May 20, 2013 8:07 am 


Floyd does not need to be afraid, he will just ignore him the way he did to Pac. Otherwise, he’ll let matthysse get much older before fighting him. That’s vintage Floyd at his best.

Mick the Marmalizer

Matthysse @ 147Lb or Canelo @ 154Lb are the only meaningful fights out there for PBF. What’s betting he wants Mathth & 154Lb & Alvarez @ 147Lb. Ray Leonard played the same gamesmanship with Donny La Londe.

Posted May 20, 2013 6:41 am 

IRON MAN 3 wasn’t very good.

Why should Floyd be afraid of him? he can just choose to fight someone else.

Posted May 20, 2013 3:38 am 

Mick the Marmalizer

Surely the WBC have installed Matthysse as #1 contender @ 140Lb so where’s the problem, Garcia has to fight him or be stripped. That’s what mandatory’s are for!

Posted May 20, 2013 3:28 am 


Largo > you I agree with you completely ! Garcia didnt refuse or say anything yet about possible lm fight and the writer “assumes” that Garcia might duck him…!!
Lets wait first ,both lm and Garcia are fearless fighters so no need to offend anyone!

Posted May 20, 2013 1:16 am 


So, now Floyd should be afraid also??? hahahahaha, this is comedy hour at it’s best, hahahahaha…

Posted May 20, 2013 1:15 am 


Does this mean Floyd will avoid him ?

Escuses ,escuses …Peterson got so many gift decisions like in the fight with khan ,he always holds and goes with the head inside and gets away with it and now he complains about rabbit punching by mathyse ?? He was holding mathyse hand because he was hurt mathyse wasn’t going to let him get away with it …in the first round he runn the whole round (not counterpunch) then he as soon as he got closer to mathyse it was over ,there is nothing else to it .mathyse gets the recognition as a top 140 pounder the hard way by stoping everyone ,good or weak opponent ,Martinez and him both got robbed early in their carriers because they Were not known US so it was easy to Robb them but both made the name for himself the hard way .
However Garcia vs mathyse it will happen and I think the outcome of that fight will happen in the late rounds and the one that has the better stamina will win by a stoppage !

Also the good matchup would be mathyse vs Marquez

Mathysse looks deadly but let’s allow things to play out. Should Garcia bow down & retire. Calm the f$@! down people.

writer of thsi article your closing statement is what Peterson said he got stupid and traded. Stop trying to make like he said he got knock out be cause he didn’t eat his wheaties.

Posted May 19, 2013 11:50 pm 


Scary power for a lil guy. Kinda like pac but only difference is he has better defense than pac n dont get hit as much! He will clean out the 140lb division easily!
