The Interim WBC World Light-Welterweight Championship

Post-fight analysis

Matthysse destroys Dallas Junior with first round KO

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.

Pre-fight analysis

Interim champ Matthysse looking to prove his full World title credentials against stand-in Dallas Junior

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.

Soto Karass spring surprise and decisions Aydin

After a highly entertaining 10 rounds, Jesus Soto Karass, 30, took a majority decision against a man one believed to be a massive prospect, Selcuk Aydin, 29.

It's now back-to-back defeats for Aydin, who finds himself at a crossroads in his career after failing to bounce back from his defeat to Robert Guerrero in July.

There can be few complaints that Karass didn't deserve the decision. After a 30-minute battle where Karass impressed both with his workrate and solid jab, the scorecards came back 93 - 97, 95 - 95, 93 - 97.
