Garcia vs Matthysse Annouced as Co-Main Event of Canelo vs. Mayweather
Been rumored for a while, so don’t believe anyone who said they had it as breaking news. It was reported a few weeks ago as basically a done deal and Golden Boy President Richard Schaefer officially announced it today during a conference call.
It is the fight every hardcore boxing fan wanted to say and immediately put the winner in line to be the next opponent for Mayweather if he wins.
Even if Mayweather loses, the attention Garcia and Matthysse will get justifies them co-headlining the PPV as oppose to having their own Showtime card to headline.
