"The One" Undercard Press Scores

Danny Garcia vs Lucas Matthysse - WBC . WBA 140lb Titles

By Bobby Hunter

Lets make no mistake. This fight could have been a Main Event in its own right. Danny Garcia the young WBC and WBA champion from Philly was actually the underdog against the hard punching Argentine Lucas Matthysee. The fight was expected to be a shoot out with many picking Matthysse to prevail. One big surprise was this fight going the distance with Garcia giving a boxing clinic at times neutralising the Argentine's power with clever boxing and a jab that closed Matthysee's left eye half way through the fight. Add a late knock down scored by Garcia basically sealed the win and probably his best performance.

Angel Garcia can now rest, if that's possible. At the Pre fight press conference the champions Father said he would cut of his head if his son lost the fight. Thankfully for him Danny fought a very controlled and disciplined fight to prove the doubters wrong. Garcia plans to move to Welterweight now where the ultimate challenge awaits, A shot at "Money" Mayweather and huge payday. Many think Garcia is in prime position to get the shot as the Great Mayweather is running out of challenges.

My card for the Garcia-Mattyhsse read, 115-112 Garcia.

The judges scores were as follows, (Robert Hoyle) 114-112 Garcia, (Glen Trowbridge) 115-111 Garcia, (Juergen Langos) 114-112 Garcia.
