So many of u guys were wrong picking peterson lol, if u don’t know Matthysse now u do. This guy is undefeated an the biggest puncher in boxing. Plus didn’t u see Khan beat peterson? Lucas is way better then Khan.

Lamont was doing okay with his jab and move early on in the fight, but you could tell he wasn’t convinced this was going to win the fight for him. He’s predetermined to fight at close range and with lots of pressure. Lucas can punch.

Anyway… The puncher beat the brawler tonight. Peterson never had a chance.. He started out boxing and moving which was smart…but as soon as he got tagged old habits took over and he tried square up and bomb away.. and got murdered like he was Joe Frazier trying to fight Foreman.

Tark..If can be a very big word. My way of thinking is make them do things they don’t like. Prime example last week in the Burns-Gonzales fight. As soon as Burns made him fight Gonzalez quit. Gonzales was a murderous puncher. Its a mystery this game man lol

I hope Peterson found the soft spot to land I was talking about…

Left hook… I can not only go from my own experience and can pick fights from history for dramatic examples—but the Ali beats Foreman, Foreman beats Frazier, Frazier beats Ali scenario plays out if you sift through thousands of fights.. There is no such thing as a pure boxer, pure puncher, or pure fighter; everyone is a mix of styles—and it’s not locked in concrete, but a general rule of thumb. With that said, styles will shift the odds a certain amount and often give one boxer an advantage if it’s a close matchup—just like playing on a hard court or a clay court will give one tennis player or another an advantage if they’re both elite players. But one thing most pros agree with—you don’t walk into a puncher’s wheelhouse. Better to counterpunch or pick him apart from the outside if you have an edge there.

B red… That’s good to hear bud. I agree Peterson just needs to be himself. Push this guy back if he can. Just what I was trying to say to Manny Steward, I mean Tark lol

Q

lefhook: Smart, es más, Lamont isn’t just an elite pressure fighter, he can also box on the outside, and we’ve seen Lucas being outboxed… I don’t know why Lamont is so underrated either… I was hear saying he’d give Khan all he could handle if not win… and I’m here once more to say, stop underestimating this man… he’s fighting a man who can know you out, but he’s still the better fighter, and barring a stoppage… I’m going to have to go for who I feel is the superior fighter. Lamont Peterson. And don’t clown Khan, this is the only man to beat can although a bit of controversy due to justifiable point deductions, but Khan has only lost from being stopped other than that, Khan can suffer multiple knockdowns and STILL win on cards. Soto went at Lucas, and it was very competitive, but Soto was way too small, moving up in weight etc… Lamont won’t have that problem, and this bout may surprise you guys.

B red… Cool man. I’m sitting here freezing my nuts off, its raining as per usual. Ye I agree, that’s what I was trying to tell Manny Steward, I mean Tark. Nobody fights great getting pushed back, fighting at the other guys pace.

Posted May 18, 2013 8:51 pm 


B Red

Lefthook, I.m cool man. Im watching my NY Knicks against The Indiana Pacers playoff game. I think Lamont has to get inside of Lucas’s punching range and fight on the inside and make it a dirty fight. He needs to push Lucas back, because i dont think Lucas fights well going backwards

Posted May 18, 2013 8:46 pm

Petterson for me, I cant understand why he’s so underrated. He’s a good educated pressure fighter. He’s a fighters fighter if you ask me. Good fighter to watch.

Petterson for me, cant understsnd why he’s so underrated. Good smart pressure fighter. Good fighters fighter. Good to watch also.

Posted May 18, 2013 8:36 pm 


lefhook

Lol we could all sit here and pick a few fights from the history of boxing when a punchers knocked a come forward fighter out. That’s what you do on here, pick from fights you’ve seen, never been in. You stay on top of punchers to deny them chances to get set. Again, you do this to set a pace they don’t like and to upset there rythem. What did Tyson, Fenech, JCC, Calzaghe, just to name a few make career’s out of doing??? ffs

sorry, “easy work for Lucas” no no no no no.

Posted May 18, 2013 8:19 pm 


Q

Boxtradamus: Easy work for Peterson? Jajaja…. It’s a close fight in my mind… if anyone will run away with it… it will be Peterson. IMO. I’ve seen that Lucas hits like bricks, but I’ve also seen that he can get outboxed, and Peterson isn’t a small fighter you can just overpower with single shots. Realtalk, you also think this is an easy fight for Lucas? You guys don’t know boxing at all. Anyone with the power of a Matthysse can win by KO at any moment of a fight, I won’t say that’s not a possibility, but come on… Peterson has fought and won against better competition, and he’s very versatile…. how will Lucas win “easy”? No way. You guys are lucky I’m here to teach you about boxing. This is not an easy bout to Lucas, and I’m leaning towards Lamont to win. 55/45 for Lamont is my lean.

$79.95 PPV

The fight would probably get that at 2.5 million, don’t worry, Pacquiao will beat Rios.

This is a fight, who is going to win, loking forward to this, Boxing.

TARK

NO it’s not Lefthook… That’s why Frazier got his head taken off by Foreman… Why Hatton got smashed by Pacquaio.. You box a big puncher — that’s basic.

Posted May 18, 2013 7:02 pm 


TARK

Right Lefthook. The pressure style DOES NOT work well against big punchers.. Didn’t work for Frazier against Foreman.. Didn’t work for Hatton against Pacquiao.. Rios has met a big bomber yet … You box a big puncher. You attack a superior boxer, and don’t let him box. You smash an attacker with big punches as he comes in … Basic stuff — and why it pays to develop all-around skills.

Posted May 18, 2013 7:00 pm 


LEFHOOK

Tark… What are you talking about it doesn’t work well against punchers?? of course it does. Honestly the more you talk on here the more it becomes apparent that your fight knowledge isn’t what you think it is. Pressure is prob the best tactic against a puncher or anyone more skilled than you. It takes a lot away, the main thing being you are then fighting at your pace witch is major. The toughest thing in a fight is being made to fight at someone elses pace. Try even running with someone quicker over a distance.

Tark – great points, though every boxer should utilize head movement. Most do at a certain degree. Peterson doesn’t much at all from what I’ve seen. That could hurt him tonight. Excited for this one as well

Posted May 18, 2013 6:10 pm 


TARK

Remember those decisions were gifts—particularly the Judah fight, where Zab ran and held for the last 2 rounds. He only survived because the referee broke many “clinches” where Matthysse had an arm free to punch.

Telling Peterson to box and move against Matthysse is like telling Joe Frazier to become Jimmy Young when he faced George Foreman. Peterson is a pressure fighter who wins by breaking you down and attacking harder when fatigue starts closing in—the basic philosophy of guys like Frazier, Hatton, and Rios.. The style doesn’t work well against a big puncher—so it’s almost mandatory for fighters in a crowded division to spend many hours and years rounding out their skills.. Peterson is a much better boxer than when he fought Tim Bradley 3 years ago. Matthysse has also improved his skills so it should be a good one. I favor Matthysse 8-5 for the D.

Peterson needs to look for a soft place to land…

In all fairness tho I expect Lucas to win, Lamont has fought the tougher and better fighters. Lucas beat both Judah and Devon and he’s much better now than he was before, but truth is Lamont fought Khan and Ortiz when those 2 were the 2 best 140lbers around. I think Peterson got very lucky decisions, a win and a draw, against both and didn’t deserve to win, but Lamont has also improved and isn’t your typical pressure fighter. He should be tailor made for Lucas, but Lamont is versatile meaning if plan A didn’t work he has a plan B. And thats what makes the difference, unless plan B means to run for your life, but Lamont can take this and avenge his losses. Could be his time to shine.

largo I respect that but I can’t see Peterson winning at all, I don;t think he is not good !

Posted May 18, 2013 4:59 pm

Peterson is experienced, tenacious & all-around good operator; his body-punching is not too shabby either. He’s learned how to win & is mentally strong, i see him winning with no controversy whatsoever…

Posted May 18, 2013 4:11 pm

Peterson has got to be wise. He’s playing into mathysse’s hands. Doesn’t look good for Peterson.

Peterson won’t have to “walk Matthysse down” because Matthysse will be after him for 12 rounds. If it goes that long.

Posted May 18, 2013 3:02 pm

Mathysse will win and easy too! Peterson is not really that good!

That’s right. Trading with Lucas has proven to be a bad idea for everyone who fought him. The only guy for whom it will make sense to trade with Lucas is Danny Garcia, not Lamont Peterson.

Posted May 18, 2013 2:36 pm

Lamont’s craftiness & body-punching will give him the victory tonight.
