Lucas Matthysse (34-3, 32 KO’s) will be taking a tune-up/stay busy fight against lightweight slugger John Molina (27-3, 22 KO’s) on the Keith Thurman vs. Julio Diaz fight card on Showtime at the StubHub Center, in Carson, California, USA. The Matthysse-Molina fight should provide entertainment for boxing fans anxious to see straight slugging, even if the fight does prove to be a mismatch.
Hopefully, the Molina doesn’t fold in one round like he did against Antonio DeMarco in 2012. Matthysse is a bigger puncher than DeMarco, so it’s quite possible we could see Molina drop for the 10 count early in the fight. In that case, hopefully Golden Boy Promotions and Golden Promotions learn from the experience that they can’t match Matthysse against lightweights and expect the fights to be entertaining.
