Lucas Matthysse confident ahead of Danny Garcia fight

Lucas Matthysse is confident that he can take Danny Garcia's best shots and predicts a great fight between the two light-welterweights next month.

Lucas Matthysse is confident that he can take Danny Garcia's best shot when the two light-welterweights meet in the ring on September 14.

The big-hitting Argentine takes on the WBA and WBC champion in Las Vegas in two weeks' time.

He is predicting an exciting fight, with both boxers favouring an attacking style, but he is confident that he can beat the American.

"I feel his style suits me. He is not a very good boxer," Matthysse told reporters. "He's a fighter that's aggressive and comes forward just like I do. I like that.

"Yes, I think I can take [his left hook]. I've been hit before and been able to withstand it, but if Danny drops me, I'm going to get up.

"Hopefully he comes towards me but it doesn't really matter. I have a feeling that we're both going to be very aggressive. It will be a great fight."

Garcia has won all of his 26 bouts, while Matthysse has two defeats on his record.
