Lucas Matthysse: 'Garcia disrespects everyone, so he's getting disrespected'

New, 28 comments

Lucas Matthysse agrees that Danny and Angel Garcia are disrespected, but places the blame on their own shoulders, saying they're treated the way they treat others.

Luke Thomas, SB Nation

"Luke Thomas for SB Nation here in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena opposite the man in the co-main event. Alright, Lucas, if you listen to Danny Garcia and you listen to his father, they seem very bothered by how the media portrays them. Be honest: do you care at all how the media portrays you?"

Lucas Matthysse

"No, I think the press treats me very well. They've shown me a lot of love. But I think it's because of how I talk, too. I don't disrespect no one. I speak very well to everyone, and I respect everyone. I think he's being received the way he treats people. He disrespects everyone, so he's getting disrespected."

"What do you make of his father? Do you laugh at it, do you get annoyed by it? How do you perceive what he's doing?"

Lucas Matthysse

"He makes me laugh. His gestures. Because I don't understand a word he's saying."

Luke Thomas, SB Nation

"Do you think the American media or at least the Anglo media, do you think they obsess over your power a bit too much? Obviously your power is strong, but do you think they focus on it too much without focusing on some of your other boxing skills?"

Lucas Matthysse

"No, definitely, they focus on that because it's been happening recently. I go out looking for my opponents, I go out looking for a fight, and they've liked it, they've enjoyed it. But there's obviously other style."

Luke Thomas, SB Nation

"There's a ton of Argentinean media here, TV, radio, print. Has the media from Argentina ever traveled to cover a fight like this for you."

Lucas Matthysse

"No, it's the first time."
