Golden Boy makes Danny Garcia vs. Lucas Matthysse official for the undercard of Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alavarez.

As speculated on for weeks, and talked about this morning, the highly anticipated bout between Danny Garcia and Lucas Matthysse was made official for the undercard of Floyd Mayweather's mega bout with Canelo Alvarez.

The announcement comes after weeks of talk that this bout, a completely legitimate main event in its own right, would be added to the card to try to build a mega event, rather than an event that stands with Mayweather vs. Canelo as the lone (very strong) selling point.

When making the announcement Richard Schaefer said "The single biggest pay-pre-view event of all time by adding the next most anticiapted bout in boxing. Yes, it's done. Yes, Danny Garcia vs. Lucas 'The Machine' Matthysse will be on the card. Yes, 'The One' just got another 'one.'"

Schaefer also stated that Garcia vs. Matthysse is the most expensive fight ever put in the second spot on a pay-per-view and that it will get its own three city press tour.

It was also stated that the gate will be over $19.5 million dollars, "shattering" the record for Floyd Mayweather's bout with Oscar De La Hoya

We'll have much more on the fight as it approaches including information on this bout.
