WHAT IF... LUCAS MATTHYSSE VS. DANNY GARCIA?
By Joe Harrison
When Danny Garcia defeated Amir Khan by a fourth-round TKO last July, many fans were calling Garcia the best junior welterweight in the world.
Suddenly, after the Lucas Matthysse victory over Ajose Olusegun by a tenth-round TKO, fans everywhere are expecting Lucas to clean out the division.
What if Danny and Lucas did end up facing each other in the near future? Who scores the knockout?
A poll was recently conducted with fans and experts to determine who more people favored, Garcia or Matthysse. The results combined for 300 total votes, so here are the results.
60 (20%) picked Garcia
240 (80%) picked Matthysse
The result reveals that most people believe that Matthysse would defeat Garcia.
Those who voted for Lucas said that he would be too strong for Garcia. It was also mentioned that his aggression would be too much for Garcia.
Some of the voters went with Garcia because of his own skills and power.
I would argue that Garcia is more proven. His wins over Morales and Khan far exceed Matthysse’s best wins. Actually, while some folks imagine that Lucas will knock everyone out, they may be ignoring his fights against Zab Judah and Devon Alexander. I’m not saying that I believe he deserved to lose those bouts, only that those fights went the distance. In a fight with Danny Garcia, I see the fight going the distance again. Along with that, Garcia would win by a fair decision.
