My uncle just saw the Peterson vs Matthysse fight. I know he's late but he hasn't had time to keep up with boxing till today. He picked Peterson to beat Lucas by 12 round decision and would favor Peterson against Garcia. After he saw the fight he couldn't believe what happened. My uncle is a boxing purist and likes guys outboxing each other instead of wars. To put it all in a nutshell to quote my uncle,"if was a trainer I wouldn't let my fighter fight his ass. Fuck that, you gotta clinch & hold that bad muthafucker."

So if you was a trainer for your fighter, what would be the game plan if your guy had to fight Matthysse?

I think people come in Matthyssee fights thinking, let me score on a bunch of quick punches, frustrate him and then escape for the rest of the round. I think I'd approach it the exact opposite way. Slow the fight down. Be disciplined. Peterson came out jittery, shooting his jab with very little authority. He sped the fight up for no reason. Matthysse kept his composure, threw a few punches that missed but he was able to see how Peterson got out of the way of punches (Teddy Atlas saw the same thing and mentioned it on Friday Night Fights). Peterson was so worried about shooting that jab and collecting points. He didn't even realize he was falling right into a trap. I think you have to show Matthysse multiple looks. Don't be robotic. When he shoots one of those range finding, data collecting punches...one time, block it with your guard. The next time duck under. The next time back out of range. Then tie him up a few times. Then circle out of the way. Boxing sometimes is like when you first learned probability in Math. Remember P if then Q and all that shit? Matthysse knew everytime he shot the straight to Peterson's belly, he moved straight back. Then, Peterson got caught on the ropes which means there's no where to back straight up to. So he had to go left or right. He shot the body with the right and then followed with the left. Peterson got caught in the middle and that lead to the first knock down. If Peterson hadn't been so predictable, he might not have been knocked down. Matthysse knew exsctly how he was going to dodge the first punch though. You can't be predictable.
