Matthysse-Olusegun in the works

By Gabriel F. Cordero

It is reported that Argentinian slugger Lucas Matthysse (31-2, 29 KOs) will face Nigerian Ajose Olusegun (30-0, 14 KOs) for a WBC interim super lightweight title on September 8 at a venue to be named. That same night the IBF world champion Randall Bailey will defend his crown against former WBC beltholder Devon Alexander. The Matthysse-Olusegun winner would then face the winner of the October 20 clash between WBC super lightweight world champion Danny Garcia and ring legend Erik “Terrible” Morales.
