Danny “Swift” Garcia takes on power punching “La Máquina” Lucas Matthysse with the WBA World Super Lightweight, WBC World Super Lightweight, vacant The Ring and Lineal Light Welterweight titles on the line. Entering the fight, Garcia and Matthysse were both undefeated with records of 27(16)-0 and 34(32)-0 respectively. This fight was part of the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Saul Canelo Alvarez main event. In March 2012, Danny Garcia fought and won his 1st world title bout scoring a tough UD victory over Mexican legend “El Terrible” Erik Morales to win the vacant WBC World Super Lightweight title. Garcia at one point was bleeding heavily due to a broken nose in the late rounds, and still managed to send the Mexican legend to the canvas although Morales made it to the final bell. He would make the 1st defense of his WBC strap against Amir Khan, where Khan also looks to defend his WBA crown. The vacant The Ring Magazine Junior Welterweight title were also for the taking. Garcia was outboxed for nearly 3 rounds, before sending Khan to the canvas with his pulverizing trademark left hook in the last 30 seconds of Round 3. Khan would go down twice more in Round 4 en route to a stoppage. In October 2012, Garcia takes on Morales in a rematch and this time his WBC and WBA titles were on the line. Garcia scores a spectacular KO victory with a lethal left hook en route to a KO4. His next opponent would be former Undisputed Light Welterweight Champion Zab “Super” Judah. Judah albeit past his best was very game, and even hurt Garcia at one point but lost a clear UD. Garcia is expected to defend his titles next against the winner of Lucas Matthysse vs Lamont Peterson. Since Matthysse’s pro debut in June 2004, La Máquina had established a reputation for his fearsome punching power building a perfect professional record of 27 wins with 25 knockouts as of August 2010. 21 of his KO wins were with 3 rounds. Notable wins up to this point include Vivian Harris, Carlos Adán Jerez and Rogelio Castañeda Jr. In November 2010, Matthysse took on his biggest fight ever against Zab Judah with the interim WBO Latino Light Welterweight title on the line. Judah was able to outboxed the less experienced Matthysse for the first half of the bout before Matthysse rallied to score a knockdown in Round 10. However, Judah was awarded with a controversial SD despite Matthysse's tremendous pressure on Judah in the last 4 rounds as well as his knockdown. In January 2011, Matthysse stops DeMarcus Corley. He would lose to Devon Alexander in his next fight via another controversial SD (just as his loss to Judah). However, Matthysse bounces back with 3 straight KO victories over Sergio Omar Priotti, Humberto Soto and Martin Ángel Martínez. In September 2012, Matthysse challenges for his 1st world title fight when he takes on Ajose Olusegun for the vacant interim WBC Light Welterweight title. Matthysse won via TKO10. In his 1st title defense, he knocks out Mike Dallas Jr. in the 1st round. In his next bout, he knocks out Lamont Peterson in the 3rd round, making him the next opponent for Danny Garcia. Despite being the defending champion, Garcia was a 2-1 betting underdog going into the fight. Matthysse was able to apply effective pressure and aggression on Garcia in the early rounds but Garcia picks up in the mid rounds with his better boxing skills and counter punching ability. By Round 8, Matthysse’s right eye was badly swollen. Both fighters were warned for low blows by referee Tony Weeks throughout the bout. In Round 12, Garcia lost a point for low blows. Matthysse was knocked down for the first time in his career but it was a disputed knockdown as one of the blows leading to the knockdown was a rabbit punch that sends Lucas to the ropes before a few more shots from Garcia put Matthysse down for a count.

July 23rd, 2016. Two undefeated top Light Welterweights; Terence Crawford and “The Iceman” Viktor Postol met on this day as Crawford makes the 3rd defense of his WBO Light Welterweight Title while Postol’s attempt to retain his WBC strap with his 1st defense. Additionally , the vacant The Ring Light Welterweight Title is also on the line.
Both fighters came into the fight with an unblemished record of 28-0.
In April 2015, Crawford beat Thomas Dulorme via TKO6 to bag the WBO Light Welterweight Title and made two successful defenses against Hank Lundy & Dierry Jean.
In October 2015, Postol scored a KO10 victory over power punching Lucas Matthysse to win the WBC strap and Crawford is set to be his 1st title defense.
Going into the fight, Crawford had notable victories over Thomas Dulorme, Hank Lundy, Dierry Jean, Ricky Burns, Breidis Prescott, Raymundo Beltrán & Yuriorkis Gamboa. On the other hand, Postol hold meaningful wins against Hank Lundy, DeMarcus Corley & Lucas Matthysse.
Freddie Roach believed that Crawford’s stance switching will not trouble Postol as Postol was Manny Pacquiao’s sparring partner and according to Roach, he sparred so often with Pacquiao that he had gotten accustomed to dealing with the southpaw stance.
As the fight begins, Crawford started off in the orthodox stance but after 20 seconds he switched to southpaw and from the on he never revert back to orthodox. The fight was pretty even for the first four rounds before the momentum switched in Crawford’s favor in the 5th frame.
Crawford scored a knockdown within opening seconds of the 5th, and then another knockdown in the middle of the round. From then on, Crawford proceeded to dominate the fight and win every other round using lateral movements with an impeccable defense whilst counter punching effectively.
It is the first and second time that Postol had tasted the canvas in his pro career.
In the 8th round, Postol was almost down again when he got knocked off balance from a Crawford right hook. In the 11th round, Postol lost a point for excessively hitting behind the head.
Postol would occasionally land good right hands to the head and body but was not busy nor effective enough to make a difference. In the 9th round, Postol literally landed only one punch. Postol rallied in the last two rounds but it was too late as Crawford won a lopsided UD.
Crawford remains undefeated today with a record of 32(23)-0.
