Matthysse: I want to win in a convincing way

WBC Interim welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse arrived in Las Vegas on Monday and looks to be in superb condition. Challenger Mike Dallas Jr. and his team have also hit town. The fight week schedule calls for a media workout today, press conference Thursday and the official weigh-in Friday. The weigh-in (4PM at Vinyl inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino) is open to the public. Matthysse, who is 32-2 with 30 KOs (both losses controversial), is listed by bet365.com as a prohibitive 33:1 favorite. Backers of Dallas Jr. (19-2-1, 8 KOs) can get 12:1. Dallas was rated at #33 in the most recent WBC ratings.

Matthysse told that Argentinian press “I want to win in a convincing way. I intend to take advantage of this opportunity to show the boxing fans what I can do.” He also stated he will be on hand to see WBC/WBA champion Danny Garcia defend against Zab Judah on February 9 and stated “I want Danny! This will be my next big fight.”
