PACQUIAO-MATTHYSSE FEATS, FACTS AND FIGURES PART IV

By Maloney L. Samaco
PhilBoxing.com
14 May 2018




Lucas Martin Matthysse has held the WBA "regular" welterweight title since January 2018, and previously the WBC interim super lightweight title from 2012 to 2013. Matthysse is known for his aggressive fighting style and powerful punches that could stop opponents thus the monicker "La Maquina" (The Machine). His older brother is former professional boxer Walter Matthysse.

* * *

One of boxing's most popular fighters, Matthysse (39-4-0, 36 KOs, 1 NC) was so well-liked with his one-punch knockout power and aggressive attack inside the ring which always gives the fans some breathtaking bouts and enabled him to bag the BWAA 2014 fight of the year honors. Only Ruslan Provodnikov (majority decision), Carlos Adan Jerez (unanimous decision), and Bernardino Gonzalez (disqualification) were not knocked out by Matthysse.

* * *

On November 6, 2010 Matthysse lost a very disputed split decision against former world champion Zab Judah at the Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey. Two judges scored the fight 114–113 for Judah, while the third judge saw it 114–113 for Matthysse.

* * *

On June 25, 2011 Matthysse faced former world champion, Devon Alexander in another tightly fought, but highly controversial split decision defeat. The judges in the Family Arena in St. Louis, Missouri had the fight 96–93 and 95–94 for Alexander, and 96–93 for Matthysse.

* * *

On September 14 against Danny Garcia, Matthysse was a heavy favorite against Garcia despite being the challenger at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Paradise, Nevada. Matthysee gallantly fought, but Garcia knocked him down in the 11th round, a first for the Argentine challenger. The judges gave Garcia a unanimous decision of 115-111, 114-112 and 114-112.

* * *

On October 3, Matthysse once again was a substantial favorite to win over the undefeated Ukrainian Viktor Postol at the StubHub Center, Carson, California. But Postol dominated Matthysse and a counter right hand knocked him down in the 10th round. Matthysse did not get up alluding to a conceivable injury in his eye. He would then rest for a year-and-a-half after undergoing an eye surgery.

* * *

His only no contest decision was against Mexican Rogelio Castañeda Jr., a former WBC FECARBOX and IBA light welterweight champion. The fight was stopped in the third round of the scheduled ten-rounder on September 2008 at QuikTrip Park, Grand Prairie, Texas, after Castañeda was cut from an accidental head clash.

* * *

Matthysse expects fireworks to explode during his much awaited title defense fight and still he considers Pacquiao (59-7-2, 38 KOs) as a dangerous fighter. But Matthysse believes the veteran has aged and no longer has the same endowment that won for him eight division title belts.

* * *

"I really like his style. We have the same height, he is a fighter who comes forward and who likes to attack like me, so that is going to be good for my way of boxing. I have already faced left-handed fighters and it did not create any problems for me. In addition, Pacquiao has had a lot of hard fights, and in the last few it was evident that he gets hit more often and that he does not have the same speed and explosiveness as before. Anyway, he's still a boxing legend and that's a danger," Matthysse was quoted in BoxingScene.com.

* * *

"[If I beat Pacquiao], this will not change my way of living. I continue to share things with the family, being at home with my children, roasting, getting together with everyone in my circle as many times as I can. I handle myself like anyone else. I still live in Trelew, and while people out there go a little crazy when they see me, I have my feet firmly planted on the ground. I am a normal and simple person. I have always liked this life and it will always be like that."
