Keith Thurman-Lucas Matthysse Doubleheader In Play For April 26


April 26 could be a heavy night of punching if Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Shaefer gets his way.

According to Boxing Scene, Schaefer is planning what he called a “power punch” Showtime televised doubleheader on April 26th.

The night would showcase two of Golden Boy’s biggest punchers, Keith Thurman (22-0, 20KOs) and Lucas Matthysse (34-3, 32KOs), in separate co-main event fights.

“I’m thinking about April 26th, putting together some sort of a big guns card, where we have two of the biggest punchers in the sport and maybe the two the biggest punchers in the sport – not against each other, but on the same card against formidable opponents. And that would be Keith Thurman fighting somebody and Lucas Matthysse fighting somebody,” Schaefer told

“It might happen in Carson, but frankly you can put these guys anywhere. It’s like the ‘sluggers are coming to town.’ Whether you are Mexican or Filipino or Chinese, you would want to watch these guys. If you are a fight fan, you know that these two guys always deliver.”

That definitely would be an epic night of hands being thrown.
