“Matthysse is the most devastating puncher within Floyd’s weight range.” Really? When was the last time Floyd fought as a light welterweight? When was the last time Matthysse fought as a welterweight? Let me answer the last question: Never. When Matthysse moves up to welterweight he’ll be “in Floyd’s weight range.” Until then, he’s not.

Peterson and his camp came up with the dumbest excuses for his failed test. He clearly cheated, so I hope they’re doing some serious testing on him. I can’t stand cheaters. I’m picking Peterson to win a UD, but he better be clean. And please don’t use the low testosterone crap.

This will be a heck of a fight – somebody is getting dropped – likely Peterson. Matthysse is a beast who fights the top guys.

Win or lose I want to see Mathysse vs Danny Garcia.

Petersons gonna outwork him… Lucas should have gotten
The nod against Alexander but he had to go 12 with 2 of the better boxers he faced Alexander
And Judah… Petersons gonna do enough to out point him…

One official body cleared Peterson. The other condemned him. That’s an even fifty-fifty split then. One could argue there is significance in the fact that the organisation that did the clearing was the one that bothered to undertake an investigation into the whole affair… But that’s probably just being pedantic. Rather, one should just declare (as per Khan himself), “So THAT’S how Peterson was able to get up from those two stunning knockdowns in Round 1!” And of course that’s a fair point… Because surely, without the inferred cheating on the part of Peterson, Khan might not have had the opportunity to lose the fight on account of his own persistent, obvious and desperate fouling?

I have a problem with Peterson. So when he tested positive for a banned substance it was for a fight that HE requested the random testing. HE failed to disclose information. So it was HIS fault. Now he’s in a fight where they are NOT using random testing and HE doesn’t seem to care. His team would have us believe that because they are randomly testing him all the time now whether he’s training or not that it’s enough… well if that’s the case why not work that into a contract and have promoters and the fans paying to see the fights help pay for that cost?!? I sincerely doubt Peterson is schelling out the dough to have himself tested very often when it’s not required. I think he’s just afraid he’s going to test positive again.

what 2nd chance? hes not an adolescent who doesn’t know right from wrong, he attempted to cheat by ingesting a banned substance to alter his chemical disposition to gain an unfair advantage in a combat sport.You can die in this sport. Imagine if benn used peds vs mclellan. Not only that he doesnt have any dignity or integrity as an individual as a MAN. Your just a joke “PEEJ” and defo a yank loving your homeboy but hes a cheating scumbag.

Why give a second change to a cheater, when there are thousand daiting for the first chance…

Peterson never admitted he did anything wrong… Neither did the corrupt org. that allowed him to keep his title—and he’s still cheating. Claiming he’s natrually low in testosterone so he has to take synthetic testosterone. I hope he gets knocked out. Matthysse has been bringing his own judges with him into the ring lately, and if he lands enough of them on Lamont, he’ll go. It’s going to be the most vicious and savage fight you’ve ever seen, because Lamont has never been stopped. He’s tough and can absorb a lot. And he’ll have to to finish. If Mattthysse can’t knock him out he has to make the scoring so easy a 5-year-old could tell who won the round.

Peterson has a lot of experience & he’s dogged, a sharp body puncher & mentally strong; he’s an all-around good fighter . When a fighter reaches such a level, it’s almost impossible to knock’im out or beat’im up; if Mattysse can knock’im out, i’ll be all over this site giving him full credit but based on my boxing experience, i don’t see it happening. I wanna see Mattysse responding to a relentless body attack & a guy he can’t discourage…Peterson has grown as a fighter since his fight with Bradley & he has become a winner. I think he beats Mattysse with no controversy whatsoever…but that’s just me.

Looks like my posting dissapeared after clicking on the “Say It” icon. Oh well, let’s hope that Matthysse is not robbed again. If either one wins decisively, it’s okay. It’s just that Matthysse never gets a fair shake when it’s close.

Posted May 15, 2013 11:53 pm 


MMendoza

If it’s really close, Matthysse will once again get cheated out of a victory just like the other two times.

As of now, I have Peterson winning by way of controversial SD.

Garcia only knows how to win. As a matter of fact he beat Zab more handily than Lucas who lost to Judah

Lamont paid for it already and now he is back. Get over it. People deserve second chances. But then you are probably someone who has never done anything wrong

Garcia only knows how to win at the moment, not sure how he is overrated. As a matter of fact Matthysse lost to Zab whom Garcia just beat.

Only one Kangaroo court cleared PEDerson the other did their job and stripped him so if you can’t except their decision your not a fan of boxing but only support cheaters

Hold a chicken in the air, shove a deckchair up your nose, form a string quartet and then bury all your clothes and then take PEDS and keep Boxing on.

OK, no, he was taking steroids and knew he was, the boxing people won’t need to know about that, we forgot about it, it’s just like a cup of tea.

Matthysee by stoppage.

Matthysse by stoppage. Matthysse is the most devastating puncher within Floyd’s weight range.

No they cleared him of any wrong doing. And if you can’t accept that then your not a boxing fan

The Matthysse vs Judah robbery was pathetic… Matthysse beat Zab by 5 points… Knocked him down, beat him up, drove him all over the ring, and beat his face up something ridiculous… Matthysse’s face was clean as a whistle.. The last 2 rounds were a joke.. Judah running and grabbing the whole time, the referee breaking “clinches” where Lucas had an arm free to punch, and just interrupting the action repeatedly for God knows what, just so a reeling Judah could survive…

Reminded me of the referees in the Huck-Povetkin and Maidana-Khan fights, who wore their bias on their sleeves — X 3 in this case.

If Peterson kept one title than he was given a pass to cheat the right thing to do was strip his cheating ass and change that win to a loss but some of us and most of DC lack integrity

I thought Khanwon the fight so what. Peterson was stripped and the title was given back to Khan. What’s your point?

Khan was on a roll Boxing wise, he ran into a PED user, rematch was sorted out for Peterson, busted for PEDS, no rematch, took the Garcia fight, messed the whole training thing up.

Khan fought Peterson in his hometown of Washington, didn’t have to, yet Peterson still thought fk you, I know I am taking PEDS to get an advantage, and Khan gave him the hometown advantage out of good will.

It was given to him by a doctor. And he didn’t get a pass, he lost out on a fight, lost a payday, stripped of one of his titles. It was proven that his levels where not at a level to where he had an advantage. He also had a small suspension. So once again what’s the problem? Is he not allowed a second chance?

It’s all about a level playing field, one rule for one and another rule for someone else, PED use needs to be stopped, or Boxing will get busted, like any other sport.

Peterson is a confirmed PED user, he should not get a pass, he cheated, and he knew he was cheating to get an advantage.

Peterson is positive for illegal PED use, he is still fighting, but he should not be given respect, a pass.

Peterson is a good kid, haters & hecklers are irrelevant; he’s also a very good fighter who goes to the body hard & often. He’s gonna give a good account of himself against puncher Mattysse & that’s all that matters…

I also think that too Hecdog. Why the hate on Peterson? He was found to be not cheating. Even though I don’t agree, this is still the land of 2nd chances. Always gonna be haters
