Report: Danny Garcia vs Lucas Matthysse agreed to for Mayweather-Canelo card

USA TODAY Sports

Danny Garcia vs Lucas Matthysse could be the main undercard bout on the Floyd Mayweather-Canelo Alvarez mega fight night on September 14, as Garcia has reportedly agreed to the fight.

According to a report at FightHype, Danny Garcia has agreed to terms to face Lucas Matthysse for the WBC junior welterweight title, a matchup of the two best 140-pound fighters in the world, to settle once and for all who the real top dog at the weight really is. The better news? It will take place on the September 14 undercard of the Mayweather-Canelo event, in what would be the best "co-feature" fight in recent memory.

Garcia (26-0, 16 KO) had been thought to be dragging his feet and possibly even flat-out avoiding a fight with Matthysse (34-2, 32 KO), and while this report certainly does not make this fight official just yet, it's looking like we will get this fight, at least for now. Knock on wood.

If it does go through, we've obviously got a terrific card, and Golden Boy and Showtime (and Al Haymon) would deserve a lot of props for putting a marquee, main event-level fight like this on a PPV undercard to make it more of a full show instead of three fights to take up enough time that people can hang around until about Midnight EDT to get to the main event.
