Matthysse vs Garcia still in discussions

One of the most anticipated fights of 2013 is still being worked on according to Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer. The bout between undefeated WBA welterweight champion Danny "Swift" Garcia (26-0, 16 KO's) and the fan favorite hard hitting Lucas "The Machine" Matthysse (34-2. 32 KO's) has become one of the most talked about fights in the boxing industry since both of their victories in the Spring. Schaefer has said that he wants the fight to headline a September 7th boxing event somewhere in the US. However, it seems to be taking longer than originally planned to get the fighter's on the same page to sign the fight. A decision on whether or not Garcia and Matthysse will fight next is expected to be announced soon, and there has even been speculation that the fight can now land on the Mayweather-Canelo undercard as a Co-main event.
