No need to rush Lucas into a fight with Floyd. Let him clean up 140 if he can, build some buzz and a following and then you give him the big fight.

If he keeps knocking people out like has recently the buzz is going to be huge. Man I hope Garcia fights him smart because if he doesn't he's going to sleep. Matthysse has one of the best KO ratios in the sport.

Matthysse is a beast. I'd like to see him get a little less wild and his punches a little less looping, but it's working for him. Why change what's working?

Very anxious to see him square off against Garcia.

Nothing to do with Floyd Mayweather and a potential fight (I think it would be very interesting), but Lucas does often head-hunt and he does often throw wild punches. Hell, he fell down at least one time in tonight's fight due to a badly missed haymaker. He punches hard, obviously and has very heavy hands. When you have that kind of natural talent, there is always a temptation to swing for the fences... And Matthysse does quite often.

This is goin the whole 12. If there is a knockout, it will be late not in 5.

I love matthyse but let's tap the breaks on the new pacman talk. Pacman is a legit top 30/40 all time great. Matthyse needs to do a ton to get anywhere near that level

Well, you were wrong also. You said he'd knock him out in 5 and he did it in 3.

Lucas is still too reckless. That won't work against Mayweather. Peterson said he got hit once in the 2nd round, and his whole gameplan changed. He wanted to bang instead of box, and that what happens when you bag with Lucas.

Devon vs. Khan looks like it will happen in December.

Devon also broke his left hand yesterday, so maybe this messes up the Devon/Floyd fight in September.


Floyd really doesn't have an opponent if Garcia/Matthysse are fighting Sep 7, Devon's hand is broken, Khan is religious in Sep. He might have to go with the winner of Maidana/Lopez in 2 weeks, or Canelo ...

With Mosley's win last night, Scheafer said Mosley is now back in the mix.

Look for Shane to fight one of the winners in the Maidana/Lopez, Mallignaggi/Broner, Berto/Karass or Thurman/Chavez matches in the next months.

Shane needs to stop. It always troubles me when great fighters who brought so much to the sport become simply gatekeepers for the next generation of fighters.

I really wish he would have retired after the Sergio Mora bout.

Cotto has more left than Shane, imo. He really did not look bad against Floyd and I could even see him possibly upsetting one of the young rising stars, especially if they're coming up in weight.

It feels like Shane is in it for the paycheck at this point.. And that's pretty sad given how great he was.

I think his Ex Wife took a lot of his money and now he has this other girl that's probably trying to take his money as well.
