You have 4 fighters on this card who are very strong mentally.. They shut the world out and fight.

Last I saw Canelo paid +$220 and Floyd -$280, so it’s basically 2.45/1 and not much changed since it opened. Hear the weigh-in is underway so maybe it’ll change after. I wouldn’t wait for a more generous payoff on Canelo though, the drunks nearly always bet the underdog unless something wonky happens at the weigh in.

In fact, the odds are getting narrower — I think Mayweather is a thin -210 favorite in some places (as wide as -280 in others). The late money on Alvarez is very interesting.

Now Canelo on the other hand might be a smart dog bet. I’ve been looking for 3.5:1 and can’t find any action. If I could, I’d take a shot on Canelo.

Fight Aficionado — The Ring poll (over 4,000 votes) also has Matthysse way up. I think it looks like 68% to 27% favoring Matthysse. These fan polls (when they have big enough numbers to smooth out the organized cheerleaders), often mirror the odds-makers. The fans and the odds-makers are rarely wrong. To be sure this is a sport where anything can happen, but even so, I do not think the upset probability here is very high. Garcia is a really, really bad dog bet in my opinion. This is not a low IQ Khan in front of him Saturday night! This is a man with KILLER power in both hands. I honestly believe that Garcia thinks he can back Matthesse up with his left hook. If Danny tries to hook with a hooker who ICES people with his hook, it will be a VERY EARLY canvas nap for Danny. Matthysse at -275 looks like a reasonably safe bet to me. There is NOTHING 50-50 about this bout. And I’d be more than happy to place as much as the author can afford on straight-up odds — if it’s a coin toss, I take the side with the “W” pre-printed on the coin — I pick Matthysse.

Thanks Old Yank. I saw the boxing media poll was nearly evenly split. So as usual the Vegas oddsmakers are more in tune with reality than the writers.

Fight Aficionado — I believe Matthysse was -275 yesterday.

What is the Vegas line? I understand Matthysse is the betting fave but don’t know the line. IMO it’s not a 50-50 fight at all. Matthysse hits harder, has better boxing skills, underrated footwork, and will KO Garcia within 8 rounds.

Herron.., I don’t need to ask anyone in the industry. I can make my own assessment about whether Peterson is “very good” or if he’s a synthetic testosterone taking cheat.

He stopped Holt who’s on his last legs… Big deal… That wsa expected.

The test was Matthysse — and he failed at big time. Let’s see if Danny does better. He’s the unbeaten world champion — and Matthysse said in an interview on this website, “Garcia is the undefeated world champion. He’s the best super lightweight in the division.”

I have Matthysse winning. But Danny should do better than Peterson.

Posted September 13, 2013 12:52 am 


Idiot Ernie.., It’s not washing the dishes.. It’s not painting the floor.. It’s not skipping rope.. It’s not closing a suitcase … and in your case, it’s not putting on your lipstick.

And it’s not fighting… It’s stepping back like the man is ordering you to.. You’re free to resume fighting when the referee says “BOX.”

Joseph Herron

Okay, I’m back…what did I miss?

Oh yeah…Tark, so by your logic Peterson is a better fighter than Garcia, right?

Because if you’re looking at mutual opposition, Peterson KO’d Kendall Holt, while Garcia snoozed his way to a UD.

Styles make fights, brother.

Peterson is a very good fighter who has become much more proficient since the Bradley and Ortiz bouts…ask anyone in the industry…since you’re such an insider.

Posted September 13, 2013 12:35 am 


BTW.., Supreme Court.., Whatever you’re doing on the break—it’s NOT fighting.

And fighting every second of every round is a literal statement.. It’s not metaphorical. You DON’T fight every second of every round. The BEST trainers will tell you—you need patience.. If you expend a ton of energy knocking somebody down once, twice or three times in a round and you try to finish him off and don’t quite do it??? It might be smart not to press the action the next round and blow your reserves out completely… You might want to “box” instead of “fight” for the next round and a half or so.

If you’ve expended a ton of energy—make Floyd lead.

Make him punch. He’s very good at that so YOU have to be very good at slipping, rolling, ducking, dipping, moving, feinting—and Canelo is good.. Mosley tried to knock Floyd out in the 2nd—which was good, because Floyd was hurt—but Shane got tagged up in the 3rd after Floyd recovered … so it was a complete waste to have even tagged him.

Gladly Brother Turb0-H@mster. In fact, nothing would give me more pleasure than to peck his eyes out of their sockets myself. I would then concoct a special vulture c()cktail of comprising of vulture vomit, semen and excrement and I’d pour it into those empty sockets until they were full to the brim and then take a snap of it and send it to Danny to put on his mantelpiece.

Posted September 12, 2013 11:31 pm 


Herron says.., “You’re way off, brother…Peterson isn’t very good?”

Correct… Bradley whipped Lamont almost every round and knocked him down.. Oh yes, Tim is a feather-fisted puncher.. Victor Ortiz drew with Lamont.. Is Victor “very good?” no he isn’t.

Lucas Matthysse and Danny Garcia are very ggod… In fact, this matchup is pure dynamite. … That’s why this fight is so big.

Now.. How would you like to see Lamont Peterson vs Victor Ortiz matched in the simi, to take care of their draw — instead???

OK.. I understand.. You’d rather watch a couple very good fighters like Danny and Lucas..

Gonzo – given you have now permanently entered vulture form – would you consider feasting upon Angel Garcias eyeballs should he suffer an unfortunate demise on Saturday night?

Posted September 12, 2013 10:52 pm 


A bookie makes their money by the gap in the odds, the way the casino wins in roulette over time because there are 37 numbers (including the 0) and the odds given are only 36-1.

So a bookies job is not to be “Right”.

A bookies job is to set odds that have as many people as possible betting and at a ratio roughly equivalent to the odds they have set for the fight.

So (ignoring the draw) if Garcia is 2-1 to win the fight (bet 1 win 2) they want roughly twice as many people betting on Matthyse so they can cover both eventualities, and cream off the middle.

So when people talk about bookies getting it wrong – really they shouldn`t be talking about the result of the fight, they should be talking about the distribution of the betting.

The bookie’s odds are making a statement about public opinion, not a statement about the fight.

I’d say this fight is more like 65/35 for Matthyssee. Cause like Peterson did, Garcia will start trading hooks and get caught first and harder. But hey Matthysse isn’t hard to hit himself, maybe Garcia will get there first with his wider punches, and do some damage.

watching Angels interviews should be required for all students. The subject: Stay in school or you may turn out like this. Its a sure thing that this interloper has hurt the popularity of Danny. A tiny percent of society would approve of Mr. Garcias behavior. The final responsibility rests on Danny though as he is the attraction and obviously doesnt have the strength to control this buffoon.

TARK — Through all the hard times I give you, I cannot deny that you are a fan of the highest order and that you occasionally stumble on a gem. I AGREE — the odds makers (only a reflection of where the public is willing to place their hard earned green presidents) might be a tad off. Indeed the bout might be a bit tighter, but not necessarily by much. One MUST give wiggle room to a fighter who does not know what losing feels like at the pro level. I’ve got to give you this one — you are on the money!

Danny Garcias’s father isn’t doing his son any favors opening his mouth the way he ignorantly does. I know he wants to add more motivational support to his son but the man is a truly NASTY, low class individual who loves to bring race into his rhetoric. As for the fight, Mattysse should win this one by kayo. But he better shire up his defense in the process. Garcia is a good counterpu.cher and you can never give them too much room to operate. Still Mattysse is a deceptively quick striker himself. I see thus bout being decided between the 5th and 8th rounds. Matt ysse bei.g the victor. Cheers.

Posted September 12, 2013 8:53 pm 


Herron says, “Pay attention to Matthysse’s footwork and angles … Look at how much shorter and more compact his punches are than Danny’s. Also, his ability to fight inside is far more superior than Garcia’s.”

Okay, not bad.., I think Matthysse deserves to be favored. I’m not sure he’s a 3-1 favorite. Maybe 2-1. The odds aren’t extreme enough for a bet on Garcia—but Garcia is being a tad disrespected for an undefeated champion who knocked a couple world champions kicking and outboxed Zab Judah 9 rounds to 3.

Peterson was make to order for Matthysse—a brawler vs a puncher.

People forget that Peterson drew with Victor Ortiz and lost lopsidedly to Tim Bradley. He’s not very good. This particualr fight is a puncher vs a counterpuncher—which all things being equal would favor the counterpuncher—except Matthysse is on a tear of awesome KO victories. It’s hard to stop an on rushing express train. But I don’t see him running over Garcia like he did Peterson.

I like Garcia but lets be honest Khan is a proven Chinny fighter he has been wobbling like crazy… He was lucky to get past Diaz the boy stays HURT… Good on Danny for laying him out but do you really think that Khan would stay up getting punched by Matthysee? The results would be predictable unless Amir boxed and avoided the big shot…

Posted September 12, 2013 7:38 pm 


Are you CRAZY, Lucas Matthysee was the victim of a hometown decision against Alexander who he ALSO put on the canvas… Alexander made more NOISE than he did make solid contact… That was the second GIFT that Alexander received out there the other was against Kotelnik who clearly outboxed him to my eyes…. AGAIN anything can happen and the odds of this going 12 are slim but Matthysee is simply putting EVERYONE down…. Garcia has the kind of style that sooner or later you get hit with the big punch…

Posted September 12, 2013 7:35 pm 


I like Garcia but Lucas is too strong. Matthysse by KO.

Posted September 12, 2013 7:34 pm 


Titopia, Mattheysee had Judah on the canvas as well and Garcia looked BAD in the latter rounds against Zab Judah who is KNOWN as a front runner… I like Garcia he is a fun fighter but he is the SAME guy that had a hard night first time around with with a decrepit, bloated OLD Erik Morales… If he slugs with Lucas Matthysee he is gonna get drilled… Those last rounds with an even OLDER version of Judah than the one Lucas fought are an ominous sign for Danny Swift…. 2 days we will have our answers…

As a former fighter and a good one ,and now as a proven trainer . There are things about a fighter that the average person can’t see. Danny is a lot better fighter than Matthyssee in every department. The only way Danny can lose this fight is if he gets knocked out. Danny can win this fight two ways going the distance or by knocking Matthyssee out which I believe he will. Don’t forget Danny is a undefeated fighter he will not go down easy.

Sorry I did not get a chance to finish my thoughts on Matthyssee . We all know that Matthyssee has lost to two men Zab Judah,and Devin Alexander. Matthyssee quite against Alexander he wanted no part of that fight for some reason. This is just one big reason I can’t see Matthyssee beating Danny. Danny is a all around better fighter than Matthyssee. I am betting on this fight for Danny to win by knockout. Someone is betting that this fight is going to end early, and that Matthyssee will knock Danny out I just don’t see it happening that way. Danny by knockout in the 10th round

the odds makers would be out of business if they didn’t know what they were doing.

there are so many ridiculous categories in which to place a bet. But, you have to have a strategy to make serious money.

if I were to bet on this fight, I would put my coin on a Lucas KO straddled with a Garcia UD

Posted September 12, 2013 7:11 pm 


The only reason people think Danny has power is because of the first knockdown against Khan. He punched him, by luck, in the neck!! My 5-year old could punch Khan in the neck and he’d go down like a sack of potatoes. And Garcia’s KO against the drug-ravaged, shop-worn body of Morales doesn’t count either. Lucas is a calm, calculating, tough SOB. Garcia acts like a maricon. He’s getting starched on Saturday. It will be beautiful. But what Daddy Garcia does afterwards may even top the whole fight. I predict some crazy post-bout melee.

Steve Smoger on Matthysse’s chin and punching power:

“I have been blessed to have been in with some very signficant 140-pounders. Amir Khan when he was very good at 140, Paulie Malignaggi when he was at 140. Zab Judah and Danny Garcia. Devon Alexander when he was at 140. Even Marcos Maidana when he was at 140. And by far, Matthysse is the hardest puncher at 140 that I’ve ever been in with.

“So, he has two great attributes of a class A, top-level fighter. He has can dish out the punishment, and he can take it. In fact, at one point, Matthysse showed that he had a marvelous chin, because Lamont caught him flush, and he just shrugged it off.

Posted September 12, 2013 6:55 pm 


the Judah that Lucas fought 10 years before Garcia was better, quicker, and hit harder. judah says lucas hits way harder then Garcia. Steve smoger says Lucas is the hardest p4p puncher he has been in there with. garcia will trade because he has to if he wants to win the fight. when he trades is when he will get floored. garcia has a very small chance if he stinks out the fight and runs.

Well said, Old Yank.

Danny’s father is really taking it personally that the media and odds makers have Lucas as the clear favorite leading into the bout.

People act like Garcia can’t bang, the kid has power too, how many times did he hurt Judah? how many times did he drop Judah? Matthysse didn’t do ANY better than Garcia did against Judah, on the contrary, he did WORSE, Garcia CLEARLY won as where Matthysse left room to get “robbed”. C’mon!

Posted September 12, 2013 6:45 pm 


deepwater – Lucas has never been hit by Danny, there is NO WAY to determine whether or not Matthysse can take Garica’s shot UNTIL a punch lands…ANY man can get knocked out if they’re hit on the button, ANY man….if Matthysse thinks what you do, then he’s in for a world of trouble cause I see Garcia as the BEST fighter Matthysse has faced, Garcia CONVINCINGLY beat Judah, Matthysse lost against him, okay, yeah he “shoud’ve” been given the fight, or, maybe he should’ve did what Danny did, which is leave NO doubt as to who won.

Posted September 12, 2013 6:42 pm 


Joseph Herron, I have watched several of Lucas fights and don’t think he is a monument to craft,.. He and Garcia are both guys who are not going down as terrific boxers… The defining feature of Matthysees game is his HEAVY HANDS…Beyond that I would favor Garcia if Matthysee had average power… BUT he doesn’t my call is Matthysee via stoppage…

Posted September 12, 2013 6:42 pm 


I’m not even really a Garcia “fan”, but you’d be FOOLISH to think he cannot win this fight, you’d be foolish in thinking Matthysse just needs to hit him, you’d be foolish to think Garcia can’t stop Matthysse….to me, Garcia seems to know VERY well what he’s up against, he’s the better “boxer” IMO and he’s VERY dangerous in exchanges cause he packs power too, Matthysse seems a bit overconfident and it seems as thought he’s under the impression that all he has to do is show up, hit Danny on the chin and go home….well, he’s got another thing coming, Danny is extremely well rounded, and although he doesn’t do ONE thing “great”, he does everything VERY well, I see Garcia catching Lucas in an exchange and stopping him. I’m going with Garcia via KO within 8

I must be missing something Vegas has Mstthysse as a 3-1 favorite. I was shocked when I saw this because I have Danny winning by late round knockout 10th round. Here is my reasoning Garcia is an undefeated fighter as a pro he was on the Olympic team so he has a great boxing back ground to say the least. Garcia has beaten guys he was not supposed to beat Amir Khan and Zab Judah .In fact he beat a very motivated Judah in his home town. Zab has a lot of boxing skills when he wants to use them and he used them against Danny and Danny won. Everyone has gotten carried away with Matthysse power no one has said a word about his boxing skills . Danny is a very smart fighter he wont make the mistake that Petteson made by just running in there . I have Danny winning a tough fight .

Posted September 12, 2013 6:35 pm 


Nicely written article. If the logic that García was buzzed because he was careless is correct this might really be a 50/50 fight. But if he does get buzzed, he better react better than he did against Judah, because Matthyse will finish him fast.

Garcia has a lot of confidence in his own power, so at some point in the fight will make the mistake of exchanging hooks with Matthysse. And as the old saying goes, “don’t hook with a hooker.” That’s when Garcia will get caught with a sledgehammer shot and stopped — probably via brutal fashion.

I agree with Joseph Herron 100% — THIS IS NOT a 50/50 fight. In fact, one needs to be in a COMA to call this a 50/50 fight. Broadly the odds-makers have this as a little tighter than Matthysse as a 3:1 favorite. THREE to ONE! When did 3 to 1 become 50/50?

The Ring Poll has tightened a little from a few days ago, but has 68% favoring Matthysse and 28% favoring Garcia — wider than the typical odds-makers numbers. And it widened not because more folks expect Garcia to win (Garcia actually dropped from 28% to 27% and Matthysse from 70.6% to 68% over the past few days), it widened because the 1.4% expecting a draw has grown to 5% expecting a draw.

Again, one needs to be in a COMA to suggest this bout is 50/50!

HINT: A 50/50 bout is one where the odds-makers have it at 1:1 and the fans have an essentially equal number expecting each fighter to win. Neither of these conditions are even CLOSE to being met with Garcia/Matthysse.

Sredmond: “I don’t see Matthysee as “more skilled” I see him as a murderous puncher who is gonna have a willing target”

Well then watch and learn on Saturday night, Sredmond. Pay attention to his footwork and angles in which he fights. Look at how much shorter and more compact his punches are than danny’s.

Also, his ability to fight on the inside is far more superior than Garcia’s…that will be the difference in the fight.

Posted September 12, 2013 4:28 pm 


Garcia is a very sound fundamentally blue collared underrated fighter.Reminds me of a young Tim Dunkin in basketball not the flashiest or most appreciated and doesn’t seem like much but delivers every single time with complete fundamentals .his wins have not been flukes, he takes his time and thinks in the ring and puts the punch where it needs to go i see Garcia having some rough moments but weathering the storm for a hand raised at the end,I like mattheysse too but think he’s still a diamond in the rough and gets too excited with his punches and just swings for the hills at times i feel Danny is a smarter fighter and will hugely capitalize on any faulty mistake with bad intentions…yezzir!

Posted September 12, 2013 4:19 pm

Posted September 12, 2013 4:14 pm 


I don’t see Matthysee as “more skilled” I see him as a murderous puncher who is gonna have a willing target… Several of Garcias wins came because he exchanged and got the better of the scenario, “Morales and Khan” that said he is there to be hit… And Matthysees KO percentage and his consistent ability to put opponents on the canvas leave me thinking that Garcia is getting knocked out… He was taking fire from gatekeeper Zab Judah in the latter rounds when Judah is KNOWN to fade and collapse… I thought Peterson would possibly outbox Matthysee but the minute the inevitable connection was made with his chin he was on the deck… Garcias in for a HARD night from where I sit…

You gotta love Danny Garcia, he is the champ, he does have power and will fire

This is not a 50/50 fight. Both guys have power, but Matthysse is the more skilled fighter.

Maybe 50/50 in terms of power, but not in terms of skill.

Lucas matthysse is a more technically proficient fighter than Danny Swift.
