This fight has potential.
If either fighter wins by stoppage he will be in line for something lucrative, quite possibly a shot at Ramming Speed. I very much doubt Alexander's chances of stopping the Argentinian. That would be impressive as hell given the shots I saw Matthysse walk through v Judah.
Alexander even taking this challenge as his first fight after a big loss is commendable. He is coming to impress, but will he have the heart to compete if Matthysse makes it ugly?
I felt that Matthysse deserved the decision v Judah but it was close and Zab kept himself in the fight. If Alexander chooses to trade he could end up in a heap.
There is quite a bit on the line for this fight. If Matthysse can stop Alexander he will have options. Matthysse v Maidana seems inevitable. But if Guerrero beats Maidana . . .
Matthysse v Ramming Speed is a possibility. For my money 140 is where the action resides.
Khan v Judah carries significant weight this summer. Guerrero moving up. Will Rios follow him? Or will Antillon walk away the winner of that upcoming train wreck?
I'm not sure which way to go with Matthysse v Alexander. I do think that Alexander will win if it goes the distance. But I think the home crowd and his eagerness to be redeemed of the stigma of the Ramming Speed fight may lead him to take unnecessary risks. If that happens Matthysse will likely stop Alexander.
I am looking forward to this fight.
