Default Is Matthysse v Rios the most exciting fight out there?

Would love to see these two go at it now they are both fighting at Light Welterweight. Anyone else think this is the best fight out there?

Rios is over-rated

Matthysse vs Maidana would be another great fight.

would be a good brawl but rios is overrated and wouldnt last the 3 rounds mark but for them 3 rounds it would be exciting.

Matthysse v Maidana is a better and exciting fight as the argentina effect comes in

Rios would get ravaged by Matthysse, the whole 'face first' defence ain't gonna work for him here.

It would be a war but Mares vs Santa Cruz is a better fight

Great fight and one I'm convinced that Mares would win. It's his type of style and variation that will prove Santa Cruz's downfall IMO.

Hopkins-Cleverly would be more interesting than both though.

I think Santa would be too brutal but I keep losng money betting against Mares so you might be right.

Na, Hopkins' offensive has gone badly downhill in the last couple of years, I think Clev would just be too busy.

Cleverly-Kovalev would be better.

Lebedev-Ross would be fun while it lasted. Golovkin-Chavez too.

Mattheysse knocks out a bum in the first round and he's a superhuman monster! ts a 50/50 fight for me

Santa Cruz is too basic to offset a quality boxer who is able to handle his tenacity and come back at him. Mares could do this easily.

I was being sarcastic about Hopkins-Cleverly by the way.

He's been regarded as a beast for quite a while now, not just since Saturday...

Matthysse vs Maidana is what i wanna see
Matthysse would stop Rios on body shots and Maidana would probably UD him

I know that, he couldn't stop Judah though....Rios would batter Judah to a stoppage in my opinion. And nothing i have seen during a Rios fight, has made me believe that Mattheysse would KO him inside 3 rounds, thats just nonsense talk. Not saying Matthyssse wouldn't win, just reckon its a tough one to call.
