Yeah he hits very heavily, but a great defensive fighter, one who knows how to slip the shots, and have a game plan can deal with that. The sport has seen one too many Magomed Abdusalamovs.
The stay-busy victory over the 20-year-old Mexican fighter set up a Showtime televised showdown between Matthysse and former 130-pound and lightweight beltholder Humberto Soto on the May 19, 2012, . In the 11th round, Garcia pummeled Matthysse to the canvas for the first time in his career. It was a really bad swell from a short left hook. That thing swelled fast in the seventh alone, and they didn’t have much warning. yeah i said it hahaha. Even if Danny gets the best steroids available, he still crumble at Matthysse's feet! I might be getting a little bit ahead of myself, but i have said this multiple times, no one at 140 can beat him, the only fighters that are going to beat Matthysse convincing, are going to have to be great, no if's and's or but's. It was a fantastic display of savagery and desire from two guys looking to steal the show and win impressively. Matthysse cruised in the early rounds and built a lead, but Danny Garcia landed enough power shots to close the right eye of Matthysse. Garcia has great skills, a real boxing brain, and I couldn't for the life of me understand why the bookies had Matthyse favourite. Matthyse as a boxer was never ever gonna be able to outbox Garcia and Garcia was never going to go in there and slug. Matthysse absolutely destroyed him early in the eleventh round. Unfortunately, the man had nothing left. Didn't think Matthyse lost much in defeat. Lucas Matthysse of course. Rate Comment
I think his corner did an incredible job with his eye. Which made Garcia being a 2/1 underdog and 9/2 to win on points fairly obvious. The three judges scored the bout 114-112, 114-112, 115-111.
Scored it 116-110. Matthysse had a few good moments, and even knocked out Garcia’s mouthguard. The fight was wisely stopped. Both of them gave everything they had.
As he spoke, Matthysse let slip a smile. Things had come to their logical conclusion. The warrior in him was ready to burst out.
In short, Molina had to show something at the sound of the bell. His disdain for press events is matched by his joy to box, to entertain, and against Garcia he senses an opportunity to put on a show. Molina didn’t seem too particularly hurt afterward, but one has to hope he was taken to the nearest hospital in order to be thoroughly checked out. Matthysse’s right eye has been demolished pic.As Matthysse’s eye became swollen, his performance in the ring suffered. I doubt we'll be seeing Khan in the ring with him anytime soon put it that way!
Molina was dropped early in round 11, though, and hard, and Russell made the right call to end the fight there. Garcia won a unanimous decision. His eye was almost completely shut by the end of the eighth, but his corner got it 90 percent open by the time he got off the stool for round 10.
  Not many people gave light-welterweight world champion Danny Garcia a chance against Argentinean bruiser Lucas Matthysse in the co-feature of the Floyd Mayweather-Canelo Alvarez pay-per-view, but a key injury in the eighth round turned the tide. Both fighters traded big shots in the opening rounds but the Matthysse was able to land consistent big body shots and came through this fight with another fifth round TKO.
