By Franco Ranzoni: Lucas Matthysse arriving back home in Argentina has immediately confirmed to the Argentine media that a rematch with WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia has already been discussed. “A date” he says “is still being worked out.” This comes as outstanding news for any boxing fan out there who witnessed what could be described as the one of the best fights–if not the best– of 2013.
For 12 rounds the two champions exchanged blows that would have probably knocked out most other fighters out there. These two, however, took every devastating blow, and returned them with interest. Matthysse vs Garcia looks destined to become our generation’s Gatti vs Ward.
