Peterson vs Matthysse Recap: Rise of “The Machine”
Lucas Matthysse surpassed everyone’s expectations, including mine, I thought he would knock him out in 7 but he did it in 3, and if you listened to me you made yourself some money. Now, Lucas Matthysse has become a household name and is the new face of Showtime, they are even comparing him to “The Great” Manny Pacquiao, thanks to Richard Schaefer, I don’t know about you but I never saw Manny with that kind of power, balls yes, but power? Manny uses angles and outworks you into oblivion, and yea he packs a mighty fine punch but one touch from either of Matthysse’s hands is guaranteed to put you to sleep. We saw him turn a boxer-puncher into an outside-boxer and he was still too much, his first knockdown, being just a graze still did enough damage to put him down. He proved he is the best in the junior welterweight division and if anyone deserves to be the mandatory for Mayweather it should be this guy, after he beats Danny Garcia of course, a fight we all want to see.
