Saturday night knockout artist Lucas Matthysse and Olusegun Ajose will battle it out for the WBC interim junior welterweight title live from the Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.
I will be there live to report the action as it happens in Sin City, so stay tuned to this blog as it will be updated throughout the night.
Matthysse has won by KO in 29 of his 31 fights and will look to continue his early stoppages as Ajose will look to keep his undefeated record intact while adding a quality win to his unblemished resume.
Matthysse could set up a fight with one of the other top junior welterweights with the win, mainly a fight with the current title holder, Danny Garcia.
Ajose could also net a title fight with Garcia with a win, as he was supposed to be the mandatory challenger for Garcia before Erik Morales was awarded the spot for the October 20 card in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Catch the action live on Showtime beginning at 9 p.m. EDT.
