26th January 2013
It was blink and you'll miss it stuff in the main event of the evening. Argentina's Lucas Martin Matthysse, one of the most devastating knockout fighters in boxing right now, lived up to his powerhouse billing and knocked out stand-in opponent Mike Dallas Junior cold in the first round.
And now support is growing to see Matthysse, 33 - 2, matched with unified titlist Danny Garcia, should he prevail in his now postponed fight against Zab Judah on April 27th.
When Argentina's Lucas Matthysse wins fights, he almost always does so with a stoppage. The 30-year-old Interim WBC World Light-Welterweight Champion has a 32 - 2 record with a stunning 30 knockouts, and he'll be looking to add one more when he defends his interim belt against 19 - 2 American Mike Dallas Junior.
Dallas Junior, 26, is a late stand-in opponent after Henry "Hank" Lundy was forced to withdraw from the contest. The challenge that faces Dallas Junior, a California-based prospect, is a daunting one.
