Fight Aficionado

Te tumbo I objected to Pac vs Marquez 3-4 happening because there were other bouts available and I wasn’t interested in seeing the same fight on rinse/repeat. Was never a big Pac fan though. Always respected him and found him entertaining but he wasn’t one of my faves. Over the past decade my guys were Pavlik, Judah, Hatton, Corrales, Barrera and Forrest.

Thats the thing about Matthysse he can beat boxers. Hes strong enough to where can punish even slick boxers. Over his last fights he has improved a lot.

Fight Aficionado- when did Garcia duck Mathysse? And what boxing ability are people overlooking on Matthysse? Come on man! If Math beats García, and he certainly should be the favorite, I guarantee it will not be by out boxing him. The guy is crafty, but it’s not by chance the two guys he’s had the most trouble with are boxers (whether he won the fights, which foe me he did, both Judah and Alexander gave him trouble).

“Pac ducked Marquez by fighting him” once every four years based on the assumption that he had aged and faded beyond his ability to compete v. a prime and bigger Pacquiao*. Team Pacquiao was pretty transparent of their expectations along with most Pacquiao* fanboys who were opposed to III even happening because of the same assumption. FA, i seem to recall you being among those objectors(?). to III and IV. fortunately, Marquez’s fierce warrior-spirit and dedication prevailed to confirm those bouts an deliver the #1 KO in Boxing history. that’s how Juan the Greater does it while the loser continues to hold-out for favorable purse-splits and locations. what a shameless Ducker.

“Most betting lines open up while being highly influenced by the “hype” of course Lucas has the “hype” factor here so naturally he’s the betting favorite. Danny’s is one hell of a live dog.” – Caper, I’d caution against betting a lot of money on Garcai. Matthysse has hype for his highlight reel KOs but what he doesn’t get hype for is his boxing ability, which is underestimated. Garcia is a good boxer in his own right and I hope when Matthysse beats him he gets the proper credit he deserves as the best jr welterweight on the planet.

many opinions and emotion about boxing events. One thing is certain though is when a line is stated on a match theres no hype, emotion or feelings. These are people who make their living handicapping these events. The line will likely move but dont think hype has anything to do with where its set at the start.

“how did Pacquiao ‘duck’ [Marquez]??” TITOPA, Vasquez and R. Marquez concluded their trilogy in one year with three FOY candidates. Duckuiao* — who in his promotional prime could confirm ANY bout v. ANY opponent that he wanted — waited Eight (8) F’n Years to conclude his trilogy v. Marquez who dedicated himself to jumping up in weights and unifying divisions during his relentless pursuit of Punkuiao*. moreover, each subsequent bout after the first were only confirmed based on the assumption that Marquez had aged and faded and slipped beyond competing v. a still-prime Pacquiao*. they were wrong each time. Marquez decisively ended their rivalry in IV and Duckuiao* has expressed his reluctance for V by haggling over purse-splits and location as if he didn’t understand that it was HE who not only lost but was KTFO in the most convincing fashion in Boxing history. he has effectively conceded superiority to Marquez at which point it’s no longer ducking. just reality.

“The moment Danny decides to trade, fight is over” I agree that this fight will boil down to who can take the others artillery without buckling. IMO, Garcia can’t avoid Mathysse’s punches and Lucas won’t even try to avoid Garcia’s. that scenario will pose serious challenges for both fighters. i’m giving the edge to Mathysse because (besides Khan) i really haven’t seen Garcia v. a quality and prime opponent. he was also unable to trigger another Judah meltdown despite going toe-to-toe in the later rounds. however, Danny is one poised and focused Mfr and i’ll be very interested to watch Mathysse’s reaction to Garcia not being severely affected by his punches and Garcia scoring a flush left shot. this is what this matchup will boil down too.

Posted July 19, 2013 4:56 pm 


Caper

Stat: That scene will undoubtable play out during the course of the fight and I took have no idea who will dish it out. I don’t like the fact that Lucas truly feels Danny is as slow as he thinks. Lucas may be investing to much stock in Danny’s somewhat wide and unorthodox delivery, notice who he varied his delivery during the Morales fight and landing a game changing “straight” right hand over the top when Eric was expecting a wide right while attempting to counter with a sharp left hook.

Arroyo: Most betting lines open up while being highly influenced by the “hype” of course Lucas has the “hype” factor here so naturally he’s the betting favorite. Danny’s is one hell of a live dog. I recall a similar situation with Margo vs Mosely was announced and I made a pretty penny on it.

Posted July 19, 2013 4:26 pm 


Caper

Stat: I wouldnt be surprised if these boys neutralize the others others best attributes and this fight becomes a chess match, its highly unlikely due to the fact that both men are more than will to produce pure stone age fistic fury but lets not forget that Lucas held his own against savvy vets like Zab and young talents like Alexander. Danny also showed he can out think and stick to a game plan while facing real adversity during his fight with Eric, Zab and Khan. This is a mouthwatering event indeed.

FA, i’m referring to Quackuiao* who stalled rematches v. Marquez for 4 years twicep and refused to face Floyd over bogus objections to stricter and harmless testing. in fact, Marquez receives sole credit for Marquez v. Quackuiao* II, III, and IV ever happening. THAT is the profile of a Ducker not Garcia making a name for himself along with Mathysse, which has resulted in the perfectly-timed showdown. this is matchmaking at it’s best and BOTH Garcia and Mathysse deserve the credit for not squandering the prime on less-prominent or worthy opponents.

nameless, Matthysse-Garcia was already supposed to have happened by now. As Matthysse kept putting dudes to sleep all the chatter was that it wasn’t a postponement, it was Garcia jockeying his way around Matthysse before eventually giving up his belt to avoid the showdown. If you read most stories about this over the past six months that was the consensus opinion. That’s why it’s a surprise they’re doing it. A pleasant surprise.

Thanks GBP/Showtime for putting a great card together. Show how Top Wank and HBO things are supposed to be. If this was Top Skank we would have re-treads. At least for both fights we expect the unexpected as the saying goes “that’s why they fight the fights” The winner gets Mayweather, let it not be Garcia. Can you imagine papa Garcia vs papa Floyd. That would turn people off. I would be a bonus if they could add Broner vs Maidana. If we could have all those 3 fights that means 2 out of 3 fights “might” end in a KO on one card.

Great fight, the fans want knockouts and that’s what they are getting.

Matthysse is better at every aspect of the game. They might have similar punching power. Garcia carries a big punch but Matthysse is a seasoned old-school fighter and Garcia is largely untested. Garcia’s speed and boxing skills are underrated but he’s in against a prime p4p beast this time.

Garcia gets knocked out early if he choses to trade. He’s in for a long punishing night if he choses to box. Either way, Matthysse wins, most probably by KO.

Good business sense with Floyd is taking the easier road and avoiding the real dangers. Floyd does know that Canelo is green and had some good opposition lately that worked for him on paper, but paper doesn’t look good for Canelo right now but how could he refuse a shot against boxings most hated name?
Backing out doesn’t pay the bills. For Canelo, growing up is never easy, but for Floyd, growing old isn’t either.

Great stylistic match up. Garcia is the better boxer, Matthysse is the better puncher Matthysee can hurt you with both hands while Garcia can hurt you with his left hook. Matthysse has impressed as of late while Garcia raised some questions about his chin and stamina against Judah. Both have weak defense, and will get hit. Garcia some how finds a way to win, and his amateur pedigree is solid. Matthysse is hitting his peak, and cannot afford to let this chance get away. Both have giant fighting hearts, and never give up. I’ll take Matthysse by 9th or 10th round stoppage due to his proven chin , punch and stamina.

This should be good. Garcia hurt Judah a number of times and laid out Khan and Morales. I’m thinking Garcia hits harder than Maidana since Maidana was unable to do knock those guys out. Matthysse is a big banger himself… I think it’s a question of who gets there first… Garcia’s short left hook is lethal… if Matthysse doesn’t look out for it… I think he’ll be facing the lights. Either way…it’s too close to call.

This slugfest will be BRUTAL!!!

Danny has an iron chin, and he throws lethal shots with both hands.

Matthysse has become an all out destroyer who doesn’t take prisoners.

They will come into the fight loaded for destruction. They know each other’s reputations. They could be cautious in the 1st round though.. You never want to do exactly the thing your opponent expects.. But these are the 2 best 140 pounders in the world — and 2 of the hardest and most indominable punchers in the world — there’s no doubt about those things.

The fact that Matthysee has ONE PUNCH KO power may be the reason he’ll lose, if he goes into this fight too high on his horse after stopping Peterson with (essentially) one shot, he may just walk right into Garcia’s heavy shots….Garcia may not hit ‘as hard’ as Matthysse (at 140, who does?), BUT…he hits hard enough, and we all know what happens when someone gets hit with punches they don’t see coming.

La Maquina has the attributes to win this fight. It’s not just his power and workrate, but his ring generalship and ability to take a punch that leave no doubt of who comes out on top. Garcia rather needs a slow pace to set up his tiiming/ left hook. Being pushed backwards by Judah, Garcia rather looked helpless and found no tool. Matthysse will pressure all night and won’t give Garcia much time to think. Ajose was hitting Lucas with a complete arsenal and wasn’t able to gain the Argentinian’s respect. Whether early or late, Garcia will fall!

“The subtle shifts in pace, the masterful use of angles, the on-the-spot adaptability-this is what boxing at its highest level is all about.

“With what I have seen of Lucas, I am taking him by KO around the middle rounds.” I like Matthysse by KO late in the fight. I’m predicting 11th round TKO by Matthysse.

But Danny will lose. By stoppage. Judah had Danny rattled and dopey for two rounds. Lucas will take him out.

Danny was a hit after his fight with Khan, but when his Dad kept going any going with his big mouth. Now, I cant wait for Danny to get KO. He is beggining to act like a superstart following his Dad BS. Judah almost got the best of him, and his Dad looked scared. I hope his lost humble Danny and his Dad big mouth. Talk your Sh** when you get to the Mayweathet, Paquiao, Cotton level.Mathysse by KO.

Danny accepted the fight because he is a warrior. This will be a good test for both fighters. With what I have seen of Lucas, I am taking him by KO around the middle rounds. But Danny can crack also. This fight is ending by KO.

this could easily be better than the headliner.

a little surprised Danny agreed to this so quickly. It makes sense as the program is already scheduled and it gives two men the chance to show their wares on PPV because alone this is not a PPV fight. The exposure on this stage is meant to vault one or both to high rent status. Boxing has had its share of sleezy participants (promotors managers etc.) but I think we may be witnessing a move to higher ground.
