Garcia vs. Matthysse: Head-to-Toe Breakdown for Mayweather Undercard Bout
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports
Danny Garcia will put all his gold on the line against Lucas Matthysse.

Boxing fans just got one more reason to part with their cash on Sept. 14, as Danny Garcia will defend his junior lightweight titles against Lucas Matthysse on the Mayweather vs. Alvarez undercard. 

This huge announcement adds a second main event-quality fight to the pay-per-view card. More importantly, it's a strong statement by Golden Boy Promotions that it's willing to give the fans some bang for their PPV buck and not force them to shell out big bucks for one marquee fight. 

Garcia (26-0, 16 KO) won his titles by stopping Amir Khan last July. He has successfully defended them twice—against Erik Morales and Zab Judah—but has never faced an opponent with the Argentine's strength and brutal knockout power.

Matthysse (34-2, 32 KO) established himself as the No. 1 contender when he nearly decapitated 140-pound titleholder Lamont Peterson on May 18 in Atlantic City. He's a fearsome puncher who has won his last five fights inside the distance.

This is a fight full of intrigue and storylines for boxing fans. Read on as we give our complete head-to-toe breakdown of the fighters.
