I wonder if his big toe hurt too?

I hope Matthysse doesn’t fight Garcia, but only because I don’t want to hear Garcia’s dads mouth again… Matthysse wins that fight. It’s be a brawl for about a round… then lights out!

Cheaterson’s defense is full of holes… He was dead meat for a swinger… Khan almost had this Cheat going in the 1st round — but Khan is more defensively challenged than Lamont.

Correctomundo- I agree with you on that. Getting hit in the back of the head is against the rules in the sport and uncomfortable as well. Getting hit by a HEAVY hand like Matthysse in the back of the head is of real concern and I think Peterson had every right to complain. Yeah, Peterson was too tense and he worried too much about Matthysee power that he literally drained himself mentally. If you look back you could see Peterson trying to stay away from Matthysee deadly punches, he looked very much intimidated, he was holding alot to neutralize Mattysse punches. He was more concerned about avoiding the punches than boxing him.

People are looking too much into it. Peterson is simply telling the TRUTH that he got hit in the back of the head. And he’s admitting that it was HIS mistake for getting into a shootout with the most devastating Puncher in the Sport. ….I APPLAUD him for identifying his mistake. Now the trick IS to not repeat it. Next time potshot and run. You might have a chance THEN.

Peterson did get hit on back of the head, and it did shake him up, but he hould have been smarter. Why is he hooking with a hooker like that. He would have given a better fight, and I though he could have won, but LM would have won either way.

I like Peterson but I couldn’t root for him to win. His resume was just too questionable. Mattthysse was robbed of wins against Judah and Alexander. And TKO’d the rest. Where as Peterson has a Amir Khan win. That did’nt look esecially after light hitting juan diaz was whooping up on Khan.

There goes Peterson making excuses even after he wasn’t truly knocked down when the fight was stopped. Watch the replay!

Jay rock

LM won and easy lol

LM also has a high Boxing IQ. He’s constantly measuring you UP and figuring you OUT until the stoppage. He used to be alot more patient until he got robbed a couple times. But he doesn’t repeat that mistake anymore. IF your Defense isn’t as GREAT as Rigo’s or Mayweather’s you’re most likely going to get stopped…. LM would stop Pacquiao right NOW. Therefore he should be rated Top 7 P4P. ..Him vs Marquez would be a GREAT Fight. Marquez would probably knock him out because he’d catch Matthysee first because he’s more pinpoint accurate.

old guy

Pederson complains about being hit in the back of the head but at the time he was tying up and holding LM such that LM could not do anything but hit him where he could. LM got away with tremendous clinching, holding, arm trapping, etc. an the ref did not warn him or take away points, so get hit behind the head, LP!!

Posted May 19, 2013 6:05 pm 


He punches 100x harder than Bradley and even Bradley put Peterson down. SO it was easy to see that LM would knock him out. Peterson’s Defense was exposed vs Khan.

Posted May 19, 2013 5:59 pm 


NO. His mistake was getting angry and trying to out Fight him. Matthysse isn’t going to be out Fought because he’s the most devastating Puncher in the Sport. He punches at least TWICE as hard as anybody out there and he punches 200x harder than Malignnaggi.

The scary part about Mathysses is that he wants to take you head off or send you to Intensive Care. I have not seen this killing instinct since Mike Tyson, Roberto Duran and Tito Trinidad. He is there to hurt you and send you to emergency room.

His mistake was signing the contract.

GOOD way to recognize your mistakes by Peterson. The first step in getting BETTER is recognizing your mistakes. The next step is not repeating them.

Floyd would make Matthysse miss more shots than a blind gunman. But since he is one of the BEST Fighters within Floyd’s weight range (127-167) he’s in the sweepstakes. I’d take Floyd by late stoppage in that one.

Posted May 19, 2013 5:20 pm 


I don’t think there’s much discussion on who’s gonna win September 7. What’s more intersteing is Lucas weight yesterday night. He came in at 150 and therefore arounf the same weight as Mayweather usually comes in. I don’t think going up in weight is a problem for the Argentinian. A fight next year would be amazing, since Lucas might hit some hot air in fighting the p4p king, but I don’t think Floyd can avoid the heavy punishment that Matthysse applies all night.

Cheaterson didn’t have good success in the first round. Matthysse is a slow starter, but landed the same number of punches as Cheaterson.. Matthysse was more aggressive and landed harder so he won the round.

There was no clinch when Cheaterson was punched behind his ear. A clinch is when one fighter has both hands busy tying the opponent up, and the other has both arms tied up—or they’re tying each other’s opposing arms up. Boxing writers need to learn what constitutes a clinch.. Smoger doesn’t break boxers if one has a hand free to punch. No referee should—because it severely limits infighting and the strength advantage one fighter may have.

Working out of a clinch is when the clinchee works an arm free of a clinch and punches—or when the clincher lets go with BOTH ARMS, and punches. Letting go with one arm and punching is holding and hitting. Holding in itself is a foul on the books—but is only called after tedious and excessive violations … and even then might not be called.

If your opponent is grabbing your left arm—and you’re trying to punch his left ear or temple, and he ducks down—he’s could get nailed behind his ear unintentionally. What Nigel Benn did to Gerald McClellan was intentional—there’s a big difference. If you hit somebody unintentionally behind the ear you risk a warning—but a point deduction very rarely happens. Tony Thompson recently won a big fight with this shot. If you get a warning you try to get clearer shots when you have a right hand free—that’s all you can do. Nobody but a severely hostile referee is going to call connects behind the ear when your opponent is trying to duck under a punch.

D garcia ,had lamont peterson winnig,,and after the fight was over HE DIDI NOT look so anxious about he having to fight LM now ,,,,,,his father will make an excuse for the fight not to happen yes he was smiling ,,,but deep inside he knows he is in trouble

The Kingslayer

lol at the excuse from Peterson.

Prize Fighter

Lamont, I’m am surprised at you with those excuses. You just got beat, that’s it. I guess he can’t fight that well outside of Washington DC, where the commission let him do whatever he wants and take whatever he wants and plus the referee can help him when he can. He just got done big time by Matthysse.

Show us your pinky toe Lamont….FFS ….man up!

Peterson is still high on something and talking sheit, he was up against a different class of fighter end of

Posted May 19, 2013 3:10 pm 


Man please, Petersons chin had a severe allergic reaction to Mattysee’s punches… I thought Peterson would outbox him, the minute he traded GAME OVER…

Posted May 19, 2013 3:08 pm 


Style makes fight and Matthysse style beat the crap out of Peterson.

Posted May 19, 2013 2:53 pm 


Bottom line – Peterson did not look like he belonged in the ring w Matthysse. If you can’t run and potshot like Zab and Devon, you will be stalked and destroyed by Lucas. Love his fights

Posted May 19, 2013 2:52 pm 


This fight reminded me of Donald Curry Vs Milton McCrory -peace

Posted May 19, 2013 2:48 pm 


Great power is a great bargaining tool vs skill, that’s why we love this, anything can happen.
