Lucas “La Máquina” Matthysse Renews with Golden Boy, What about Haymon?


Lucas Matthysse vs John Molina




WBC Silver Super Lightweight Champion Lucas “La Máquina” Matthysse (36-3, 34 KOs) announced today that he had renewed his promotional contract with Golden Boy Promotions. The Argentinean star first got his start in 2004 entering the professional boxing scene with a powerful technical knockout. Since then Matthysse has had a promising career winning by knock out 34 times out of his 36 wins.

“As Golden Boy works to put together a 2015 full of huge, fan-friendly fights, Lucas Matthysse is, and will now remain, a core part of our team,” said Oscar De La Hoya, Founder and President of Golden Boy Promotions. “Lucas is a strong and powerful fighter, someone the elite of the division have to look out for in the years to come, and we are excited to continue our successful partnership with him.”

“I am excited to continue to work with Oscar and Golden Boy Promotions,” said Lucas Matthysse. “They are my family. They have supported me and built my career from the beginning and I’m loyal to them as they have been to me. I’m looking forward to my future and what 2015 has to offer.”

“We are very happy to continue our relationship with Golden Boy Promotions,” said Mario Arano, Manager of Matthysse. “Golden Boy Promotions has exceeded expectations, and we look forward to what 2015 will hold for Lucas under the tremendous support and guidance of Oscar.”

Most recently, Matthysse faced Roberto “Massa” Ortiz in a 12-round bout for the WBC Silver Super Lightweight title on Sept. 6 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Matthysse stole the night with a knock down over Ortiz with a powerful body shot in round two, which took Ortiz over 10 seconds to recover, ruling the bout in Matthysse’s favor.

Earlier in 2014, Matthysse waged war against John Molina Jr. for the vacant WBC Continental Americas Super Lightweight title at the Stub Hub Center in Carson City, Calif. He gave the crowd a great show as he went to battle in the 12-round bout. Matthysse was knocked down twice before roaring back to finish Molina in the 11th round of a thrilling war that received considerable ‘Fight of the Year’ interest for 2014.
