StubHub Center, Carson City, CA, Oct.3
By Peter Lim
murderous knockout power has overshadowed his underrated pugilistic IQ;
he reads his opponents well, adjusts accordingly and can punch from
difficult angles. Postol, at 5-feet-11, might be able to keep the Argentine at bay for a couple of rounds but Matthysse's big-fight experience soon
allows him to close the distance and it's over once he finds his range. Matthysse abruptly demolishes the Ukrainian's undefeated
record with his bread-and-butter combination, the left-right-left hook,
in the fourth round.
What a shocker! A possible Upset of the Year candidate.
Given his courageous showings against Danny Garcia and Ruslan Provodnikov, Matthysse should be given the benefit of the doubt for sitting out the count in this one.
