By Dan Ambrose: To show how important the Danny Garcia (26-0, 14 KO’s) vs. Lucas Matthysse (34-2, 32 KO’s) is for the September 14th Floyd Mayweather Jr. – Saul “Canelo” Alvarez card, Matthysse and Garcia will have their own 3-city press tour visiting Los Angeles, Puerto Rico and New York.
Question: When was the last time you saw a co-feature bout have its own 3-city press tour? I’ve never seen it happen before, and that tells you how important this fight.
This fight in some ways is a better fight than the Mayweather-Canelo fight, because both guys are pretty evenly matched and weigh almost the same after they rehydrate. This isn’t a situation where one guy is fighting at a higher weight class and is going to rehydrate up 20 pounds after he barely makes the catch-weight.
