"Lucas is stronger than me and has the power to hurt Zab at any point during the fight," said Baldomir. "I think he will eventually knock him out if he takes control of fight from the first round. He has the power and heart to be victorious on November 6."
The 27-year-old Matthysse, who hails from Trelew, Argentina, has been training in Oxnard, Calif. and is sparring with southpaw fighters such as current WBC Middleweight World Champion Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez, agrees with Baldomir's comments adding, "I'm coming to win. I'm very motivated for this fight and have worked extremely hard in camp. I want to bring the victory and belt back to my country."
"Lucas is looking tremendous and working with a lot of passion and dedication," said Matthysse's trainer Luis Dionicio "Cuty" Barrera. "He knows this is a great opportunity to fight a former World Champion and he's ready to put everything on the table. He's in great spirits and ready for November 6."
