How good is Matthysse? Personally i think he's one of the best fighters at 140, i think he beats Garcia and everyone else and i also think he won the Alexander and Judah fights, but most importantly probably for him is i think he beats Maidana, Matthysse is the better boxer and they have similar power but Maidana has shown he can be hurt and especially to the body and Matthysse loves going to the body so im not sure Maidana will make it out of the fight. Probably the only person i could see Matthysse having trouble with at 140 right now is Khan, simply because of his speed, but it could all change if Matthysse catches him flush (which im sure he will as even though Khan is partnered with Hunter he still fights reckless at time).
What are your thoughts on the Argentine and how do you think he fairs against the people in and around the 140 division.

P.S. That IS how you spell his name (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

^i agree with you leonthegee. Matthyse will make anybody who faces him look bad, he is a solid and very tough opponent with a nasty style. that does not necessarily mean he is the most feared or best.

but, I think there is something to be said for the point that he wouldn't have to worry about that (Edit: by THAT, i mean getting the shorter end of the stick when it comes to bouts decided by judges) if he was American or a more 'bankable' name. and he certainly should be considered a contender for the title.
