Matthysse is the KING OF MACHISMO!!!!
Amongst a card of mismatches and tune-ups this gem awaited. The smart money was on Matthysse, but the smartest money was on a high-paced blood and guts brawl. From the ashes of a great 2013, and so-far abysmal 2014, this fight arose. Definitely FOTY candidate. If Haymon, Arum, HBO, and Showtime continue their soft match-making, then it will unfortunately be the only one.
Nobody wants to fight matthysse, it is not their fault, same with Thurman and GGG.Matthysse is fighting whoever they put infront of him.
Matthysse is the new Paquiao, Level of aggression, combinations, footwork, look in the knockdown how He avoids the right hand stepping out, and immediately blocks the left instictively .He is a Fight dog breed.He was born to fight.
Magnificent! Hats off to these fighters.
the video quality sucks, it’s unwatchable :(
Can’t wait to see Mathysse-Provodnikov tomorrow :)
Guess they heard ” Warriors , come out and play” …
