CARLOS EL GUAPO

Why is it so difficult for Pacman to find an opponent other than JMM? Then again JMM could take on Luke. Khan or Bradley could fight him. What’s Floyd’s and his weird group saying these days?

Ajose was as tough as nails. Only problem is…is that once again, nobody will want to fight him. Even in this loss, it seemed as though we was NEVER going to back down from Matthyse. Nobody in that weight class is going to call out Ajose’s name for quite some time. It’s not worth it. It took a truly special fighter (Matthyse) to get that win. I applaud Matthyse for this victory…he is becoming one of my favorite fighters.

What a fight! I want to see Lucas v Maidaina! That would be a war. Much deserved props to Ajose… that guy is a warrior. Talk about going out on your shield. I enjoy seeing him fight and would like to see him against other opposition in that weight class. I am loving this division right now and am especially curious about what will go down with Thomas Dulrome in the mix in 2013.

WTF?

Ajose did take the loss like a true Champion and will be a nightmare for anyone he fights.. He also said that Matthysses’s shots were the hardest shots he’s ever been hit with.. Both guys will go a long way at cleaning out the 140′s and maybe the 147′s if they move up… Great fight, great warriors unlike Dumb Dumb Rios…

Plus over a year since Ajose’s last fight and only fighting 3 times in 3 years before that likely means Ajose had some “ring rust” on him. Perhaps the fight would have been different if Ajose had been more active with more fights under his belt before meeting Matthysse.

Well, let’s see if Bam-Bam can get through “Mile High Mike” Alvarado first (highly unlikely) before planning his next fight.

A fine fight, and a great win for Matthysse. Ajose never stopped trying to win, but took the loss like a sportsman. No excuses other than he was rusty and could do better, but he gave full credit to the winner.

Down goes Ajose…………Down goes Ajose……….Down goes Ajose!

Mathysse at 140 should soon be on the p4p list. He is the best at 140.

gotta feel good for LM who has not had the best luck

WTF?

I can understand why the Mexicans like Rios have decided to run from the 140lb weight division.. but Matyesse can easily move to 147llbs and kick those cowards ASSess..

WTF?

two tough guys who are going to be a nightmare for anyone who faces them.. Matyesse is a hard hitting Boxer, and the African is alsoa great hitter as well.. but Matyesse proved that no one at 140lbs stands a chance against him.. lets see if dumb dumb Rios takes him on….

Props to Ajose, but Matthysse is a hell of a fighter! One of my favourite fighters with fan friendly style. He’s got a monstrous right hand and his bodypunching is just superb!

The Mad Scientist

Its not totally insane to prop Lucas Mathysse as the best fighter at 140 but we still have Mike Alvarado, Danny Garcia and Tim Bradley to consider before we label any of these guys as the best at jr welter..hopefully Robert Guerrero, Josesito Lopez, Juan M. Marquez, Marco Maidana, Brandon Rios and maybe soon Adrien Broner can all get in that mix and make great fights at at 140..

The Kingslayer

I want Matthysse vs. Garcia to happen.

The Akbar One

Ajose was surprisingly good. He just didn’t have the punching power to match his chin, and athleticism. He could very well be the second best 140 pounder behind Matthysse.

FA, have you checked out boxing.com’s 27 June video about the Pac/Bradley fight. If not, do yourself a favor — you’ll see the judging was no where near as bad as it seemed.

Fight Aficionado

Bradley vs Matthysse is a bout I’d like to see. I’d take Matthysse there, barring judges’ absurd scorecards.

Fight Aficionado

This dudes another tough African fighter who deserves more opportunities but I don’t think anyone’s giving him more credit than a guy who should be undefeated and a big star already — Lucas Matthysse.

Best fight of the night!

Just to clarify, the translator as usual screw up. Matthysse said he didn’t feel a thing from Ajose.

If Bradley gets left out of the Pacquiao sweepstakes this time around, I’d love to see Bradley get it on with Matthysse. Matthysse deserves a title shot – he’s a guy, that despite his two losses, is a risky proposition for any fighter.

One of the most entertaining fights this year. I want to see either one of them fight again. I just hope neither one gets damaged. Some of those blows looked brutal.

Ajose could take a damn good punch

Matthysse dominated the fight from round 2 on. Ajose landed nice, crisp shots, specially the right hook, but never managed to hurt Lucas. Lucas thrives on the big exchanges and always manages to land the must effective punches. his work to the body of Ajose was a thing of beauty as well. I am glad the ref stopped it as the accumulation of punches was becoming a dangerous factor for Ajose.
