This week we have chosen Lucas Matthysse as our
fighters of the week...
It was a really tough choice this week as there were tons of impressive and inspirational performances from fighters across the globe. But with Matthhysse Vs Peterson headlining the entire weekend, it always looked as though the winner of that fight was going to be chosen, and Matthysse made certain of it by winning in the fashion he did.
The Argentinian warrior, now 34-2 with 32 KO's, lived up to his reputation of being the pound-for-pound hardest hitter on the planet and stopped IBF 140lb champion Lamont Peterson in just 3 rounds. Just beating a guy like Lamont Peterson would have looked great on Matthysse's record but the fact that he did it so emphatically has almost guaranteed him the super-stardom he deserves in the future. He has now made a serious case for himself of being the No.1 light-welterweight on the planet and the opportunities he so badly deserve will finally come knocking.
