WBC interim light welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse will put his title on the line against American Mike Dallas Jr on January 26th, at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Hard punching Matthysse has four victories in a row-two in 2012 and both by knockout. His most recent wins were over Mexican Humberto “Zorrita” Soto and Nigerian Ajose Olusegun.
Dallas Jr. boasts a record of 19 wins, 8 KO’s, 2 losses and 1 draw. In 2012 he defeated American Miguel Gonzalez and Mexican Javier Castro, the wins earned him the chance to face Matthysse.
This card will be broadcast on Showtime Championship Boxing and on the same card Selcuk Aydin will face Jesus Soto Karas in a welterweight bout while Chad Bennett will face Ben Ankrah.
“We’re glad to begin 2013 with a great card broadcast by Showtime," promoter Oscar de la Hoya said. “We’re planning to keep making great quality cards like this, so people can be able to watch amazing bouts in the arena as well as in their homes.”
