After seeing Richard Scharfer mic jack Jim Gray and scream "WE HAVE A NEW MANNY PACQUIAO!!!" I think they are going to put the hype machine, behind The Machine.
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.

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 ...
