LMFAO………….your kidding right. maybe when u learn some actual boxing skill aside from rabbit punching and swinging for the fences dude. The 140lb class gets waaayyyyyyy to much credit for how much talent actually exists. Rios, Mathyesse, Garcia all are very hard punches but none of the 3 seem have an understanding of the sweet science. Honestly I cannot stand Amir Khan, but if the boy could take a punch he would dominate that division. you would all be well advised to stay away from the 147-154lb fighters. Too much actual talent there

You gotta love Matthysse “bring them all”. I think he can forget about Mayweather, but I would love to see him in with Broner or even Canelo. Now those would be great fights!!

“Hidalgo Floyd won one 154 pound title from a full time Promoter 1/2 time boxer ..” Isuolder, I didn’t brag on any of Floyd’s mr. middleweight titles. But I wouldn’t say Cotto was “washed” up when Floyd fought him. He just wasn’t same version of the welterweight Miguel Cotto. As for his win over Oscar de la Hoya? Big deal. That fight was a glorified sparring match which at the end of 12 rounds both fighters were hardly marked. They spent more time measuring and staying away from each other than they did fighting. I’m glad there was never a rematch between them.

If Khan gets a shot at Floyd ahead of Matthyse it will be disgusting and turn boxing into a joke. We want to see the best fight the best, and we want to see Mayweather really tested and in a tough fight. Khan isn’t in the same league as Matthyse, Garcia, Mayweather or even the likes of Rios or Alvarado. Khan should not get a shot at Floyd, who wants to watch Floyd put on a $40m sparring session wobbling and probably stopping Khan inside six rounds? Khan is shot, overrated and should just retire.

Hidalgo Floyd won one 154 pound title from a full time Promoter 1/2 time boxer who was punked by Edwin Valero. 2nd 154 pound title from a wash up 154 pound Cotto who was basically given a title by fighting Yuri Foreman the worst 154 pound Champion that’s probably equal to John Ruiz being heavyweight Champ. So I would brag on those titles unless he defended them against guys like Lara, Trout, Canelo, Paul Williams when he was around you dig me ?

Sredmond……, Matthysse is good to go for Canelo.. Another puncher who’s never faced anyone remotely like Matthysse, or ever had his bell rung loudly.. Lucas would do that.. As for Mayweather??? Floyd’s 3 toughest fights are Canelo, Broner, and Matthysse… They all have a fair shot to beat Floyd.. Floyd has a tendency to get tagged by loaded shots.. Remamber Mosley??? Remember Judah??? The difference is Lucas punches with so much devastation, takes a punch so well, and stays you your face these days no matter who you are.. He has the annihilation instinct personified…

Remember, you picked Peterson to beat Matthysse.. So you underestimated LM before.

“Boxing is a Sport not a Division.” STFU Correctamundo. Boxing has everything to do with divisions. It’s what the sport is based on. STFU. When you get some real boxing knowledge, then I’ll consider considering you intelligent.

“Your hatred for Mayweather always blinds you of obvious facts ” You’re a fool happyboy. If I hated Mayweather you’d hear a lot more negative stuff coming from me than does now. Wake up. My “hatred” exists only in your dreams. Only you and other fools like you expect everything that’s said or written about Floyd Mayweather Jr. to be positive. News flash, he ain’t perfect.

Posted May 20, 2013 8:26 pm

After he destroys Garcia, I owuld love to see a fight between Lucas and Mayweather at 147. Against Canelo at 154 a little far fetched for Lucas.

Posted May 20, 2013 7:25 pm 


Happyboy

Hidalgo – ” Floyd has been tested, tried and successful as a jr. middle. Matthysse hasn’t even previously dipped his toes into the welterweight division. That’s my argument.” not much of an argument when you consider neither ODH nor Cotto outweighed Floyd by 22lbs on fight night and thus would be making a 154lbs fight a 172lbs for a JMW title. Your hatred for Mayweather always blinds you of obvious facts and you always end up being bias and transparent. Matthysse came in at 150lbs for a JW fight while Floyd came in at 151lbs for a JMW title fight vs Cotto.

At 140 lbs he can rule that division for a long time. At 147lbs Mayweather will take him out.

Posted May 20, 2013 6:28 pm 


Ray

The weight does matter, Lucas at 154lbs? 161lbs 168lbs 5’6? His power could diminish. 50% chance at winning or losing against another POWER puncher measuring 5’9 5’10 5’11 6’0. In some RARE cases it may not matter but for the most part it does matter.

Posted May 20, 2013 6:25 pm 


Fight Aficionado

I hope Matthysse doesn’t screw with his weight to chase so-called Superfights. He’s only recently established himself as the boss of 140. What he needs to do is clean out 140 starting with Garcia. Beat everyone there then worry about Floyd at 147 and Canelo at 154. But I think he’s undersized at 154 and should top out at 147. Definitely not a good move jumping 2 divisions now.

Posted May 20, 2013 6:10 pm 


murderman

Love Lucas heart but he too small for canelo or mayweather. May defense too ggod and canelo too strong hits too hard. But Lucas will clean out the 140lb division easy!

Posted May 20, 2013 5:56 pm 


SREDMOND

Man please Matthysee would look ridiculous in the ring with Mayweather those looping shots… Floyd LOVES overaggressive guys trying to launch shots from outer space… Lucas would question his choice of profession like they all do post Mayweather… The entire Guerrero clan was pathetic postfight wife included exhorting Mayweather to fight in a manner that would give Robert a better shot… Meanwhile when Floyd was in front of him with his hands down Guerreo was a day late and $50 short..Only father time has a shot at FMJ at 147…

Posted May 20, 2013 5:38 pm 


Pain

Matthyse will not win against both. But I give him like….. 20% chance. Mayweather, too skilled. Canelo, too big. IMHO, the Peterson KO is a little overrated. Still have to see Lucas against a couple of high level opponents.

Props to him for having balls.

Posted May 20, 2013 5:20 pm 


CORRECTAMUNDO

Boxing is a Sport not a Division. SO it doesn’t matter IF Matthysse has fought at Welter before. It matters IF he’s fought as a Boxer before….Floyd’s jump to 154 was more of a factor because 147 is the mason dixon line for 8 oz gloves and 10 oz gloves…140 uses the same gloves as 147 SO there’s really not that MUCH of a difference. When 2 men weigh within 20 lbs of each other the BETTER man usually WINS and Fighting in a particular weight class is no factor in that. Just take a LOOK at Mayweather vs De la Hoya, Guerrero vs Aydin, Bradley vs. Abregu, Haye vs Barrett, Hopkins vs Tarver, Calzaghe vs Hopkins etc…Fighting in a weight class is not the factor. Being BETTER than your opponent is the factor.

ED

Floyd Mayweather won two titles as a modified jr. middleweight, in other words, at catchweight. He did not fight either Cotto or DLH at the 154 limit of the Jr MW division. But that’s how Mayweather rolls, thats how he’s been rolling and will continue to roll. Even if Canelo was forced to fight 154 fight night, that would still be too much weight for Floyd to deal with, thus, ……the catchweights. But Floyd is not alone here, there are others too.

Posted May 20, 2013 4:16 pm 


ED

It would be an interesting match up if made. Floyd can run but that would play into Matthysse’s hand. If Cotto busted Floyd’s face up and I would think Lucas has much more power that Cotto given his Ko percentage and at a heavier weight will make Floyd become hesitant about opening up. Matthysse doesnt have to hit you square in the face. He knocked down Peterson with a shot to the forehead which wasnt even thrown will force. Besides whats the difference, if Floyd can stoop and fight tiny tim Marques and an irrelevant Guerrero, he can certainly fight Matthysse.

According to the article Canelo does not have a following. How does Canelo not have the following? He has ALL Mexicans on his side.

Mattysse please not mayweather! That would be boring watching you chase him and get hit with a one punch and chase get hit and chase. Canelo is too big for you. Garcia is the king pin at your weight if he don’t fight you than how about mike alvardo.

Lucas is spectacular at 140lbs. Versus Canelo? Wth? Canelo is way too big for him. Thats like send Canelo to face off against the Klitschkos. Lucas might lose against Mayweather. Stick to 140lbs for now, too early to want to jump weight classes.

Are you guys kidding me. Most of you are sooooo desperate to see FMW lose wow. Matthysse is wild and what we call OC out of Control. The rabbit punches and him not even going to his corner when there were knock downs. The ref let him get away with it. Steve should have said something to him. He is decent thats all. The game is sweet science something that most of you guys dont realize. Matthysse will lose to a good blk boxer with decent power. for the record Floyd fought 2 154 pounders that came up in weight YALL MUSTA FORGOT.

Posted May 20, 2013 2:40 pm 


bald_head_slick

Lucas looked great, but he was getting out boxed early. If LP can do that FMJ will do it by some exponential degree. Still, LM will be dangerous all 12 rounds. If his power is legit, I think Alvarez would be much more doable.

I would like to see either fight, but rather than LM taking unnecessary risks and/or losses, I want him to build up his own star. The man is going to be a great. No need to rush it. It will come.

Posted May 20, 2013 2:29 pm 


hecdog

Matthysse is a little too happy right now. Mayweather or Canelo would destroy him. I know he wants a big pay day, but stick to your division because Canelo is too big and too strong, and Mayweather will run circles around Matthysse, literally. Mayeather feasts on fighters that come to brawl, but don’t have a lot of boxing skills and are flat footed. Garcia, Kahn or even Broner would be great fights for Matthysse.

Also, it needs to be said as Mayweather is NOT too big for Matthyse, he’s also not too small for Canelo. I think either fight would be legit from a size standpoint.

Posted May 20, 2013 1:38 pm 


demigawd

I don’t see anything wrong with a 140 champion unifying with a 147 champion. Weights are just artificial numbers, and you can’t draw very many conclusions about actual size disparity from it.

Personally, I don’t believe Lucas is any smaller than Mayweather. Certainly not enough that Mayweather’s size would be his advantage. Mayweather’s fight night weight is likely lower than Lucas’ fight night weight, and many of his physical dimensions are the same size, or possibly smaller. Mayweather will have a height and reach advantage, but that’s the only real physical advantage I see. It’s a legit match up, physically speaking.

That being said, Lucas is much better off unifying 140 and building more experience, craft, and recognition (bargaining power). He’s not an entirely proven commodity yet. I think of he can beat Garcia, and then some combination of Maidana, Alexander, Broner, or Guerrero, he would have a lot of drum beats pressuring Mayweather to take the fight.

Happyboy, Floyd Mayweather jr. has won two titles as a jr. middleweight. Matthysse has won no titles as a welterweight. Floyd has been tested, tried and successful as a jr. middle. Matthysse hasn’t even previously dipped his toes into the welterweight division. That’s my argument.

This dude again, you feel it’s not a good idea for Matthysse to fight Mayweather yet cause of physical defeciencies between a 140lbs and a 147lbs ( highest weight of 151lbs) and yet see NO physical defeciencies between a 151lbs Mayweather and 172lbs Canelo, am I hearing you correctly Hidalgo.

“Guess Matthysse & Garcia wull have to do in place of Pac & Bradley:-) Oh boxing……..” The difference being that Pacquiao was a welterweight champion and Bradley is a welterweight champion. Matthysse and Garcia are jr. welterweights who have never fought as welterweights. There IS a difference.

Excuse me, I meant to say “Floyd feasts on these types of opponents because of their relative lack of experience and their physical deficiencies.”

Posted May 20, 2013 12:44 pm 


Hidalgo

” You weighed IN at 150 on Fight night which is the same weight that Floyd comes in at” For most boxers there is a significant difference between their fight night weight and the weight they train to fight at. Matthysse has been fighting as a jr. welterweight for at least seven years. He has never even attempted to fight as a welterweight before. Training to fight at 147 is not training to fight at 140. Floyd is a natural welterweight. He pretty much trains and fights as a welterweight. Matthysse, trains and fights as a jr. welterweight. There IS a difference. Yes, if you consider only the weight, it sounds like a good matchup. But Matthysse, like other boxers who come up in weight, would be wiser to fight a few tune-up bouts with lesser welterweights, before taking on one of the best welterweights. Floyd feasts on these types of opponents because of their relative lack of experience at 147 lbs.: Hatton, Marquez, Ortiz, Guerrero are prime qualifers to my argument. I’d much rather see Matthysse dominate the jr. welterweight division, then move up to fight as a welterweight. After all, Floyd should be around for at least 2 1/2 more years. Matthysse has plenty of time to take him on.

Posted May 20, 2013 12:42 pm 


Maracho

Yeah Peterson used to give Mayweather all kinds of troubles in sparring so I can see Floyd suddenly running back up to 154

Posted May 20, 2013 12:25 pm 


Hidalgo

Matthysse weighed around 150 when he stepped into the ring to fight Peterson. But he fights as a jr. welterweight and he has been doing so for many years. To suddenly make the jump to welterweight in order to face Mayweather is, IMO, not a good idea. Skillwise, I’d give him a better chance against Canelo but like I said about Mayweather, if Matthysse wants to fight Canelo, it should be at the full 154 lbs. which means Canelo will come into the ring weighing at least 20 lbs more than Lucas. I doubt Lucas is ready for that kind of size difference. I’d recommend that Lucas cement his legacy in the 140 lbs division before jumping up in weight–for any reason. A Garcia/Matthysse fight would be a big fight. But a Marquez/Matthysse fight would be even bigger. I think Matthysse would stop Garcia. I’d also favor him to beat anyone else in the jr. welterweight division right now with the exception of Juan Manuel Marquez. Juan is a tough, skilled, crafty, dangerous veteran. If he wants a real fight, he should challenge Juan, because Juan just beat the other welterweight great.

Floyd said it ” All roads lead to Mayweather”. This weekend Alexander & Matthysse threw their names into the box to face Mayweather, 5 fights, 30 months left, Canelo, Alexander, Matthyse, Garcia & Broner seem to be getting the lottery tickets. Guess Matthysse & Garcia wull have to do in place of Pac & Bradley:-) Oh boxing……..

Floyd WINS by late stoppage though….Canelo comes in 22 lbs heavier then you did for your last Fight SO that Fight is not to be advised.
