Default 140lb weight class!

What a weight class fellas!! This has been the best class the last couple of years but if people can make the match ups then this year could be awesome for every fan around the world.

After seeing Alvarado work Rios, that put a smile on my face. Not because i dislike Rios, because I think Mike has the ability to be one of the best if not the best in the weight class in the next year. So hopefully we get a 3rd match off the back, if Arum doesnt try to make the Pac fight with Rios.

So Now we have all these fighters guys, how would u rank them right now?

1. Garcia - champ right now and the sky is the limit. he does nothing great but is solid all around, think he can beat anybody in the weight class.

2. Lucas - All round solid fighter. I tink has the most power out of everybody in the weight class, got robbed against Judah and a close fight with Devon, now a big fight against Peterson May 18th!!

3. Alvarado - only lost against Rios and showed heart to fight it out on saturday. Cant wait to see him fight again.

4. Khan - still looks like he has the best talent in this weight class, just trying to see if he can get that elusive win.

5. Peterson - Took sometime off to get situtaied with his problems but now is back in the game. Best body puncher in the class and maybe in the world right now, war on the 18th.

6. Rios - I think the least talented out of everybody. preety much a slugger that has heart. now heart can get u a long way but is gonna fight better people then Mike down the stretch so he best figure it out.

So I expect Garcia to be ready and willing to fight the winner of Lucas-Peterson and thay should be great. Not sure who wins that fight on the 18th, silghty favor Peterson but its a toss up. Khan is still up in the air, should spank Diaz, and Mike should be around. what u guys think??? any predictions on who will be chap at the end of the year?? I still say Garcia

Great division. I can see a scenario similar to the 80s Fab Four in which each fighter beats one or two on the list and takes a loss from another.

It seems everybody really likes Lucas. I see it but its gonna be tough, I think Peterson can get him. If it goes 12 rounds Peterson has a great shot, Lucas best shot to me is KO Pterson. over 12 rounds that body work will kill Lucas

Peterson has a shaky beard, starts slow and gets smokin around the 4th or so.

His defense is to cover up and try to find an opening, also likes to bang to the body when he can.

Matthysse has learned from his 2 "losses" he must start faster with great conviction and it's shown in his last three K.O victories.

Great stamina (Shown in the Ajose fight), a pretty good chin (Never seen him really hurt, Judah landed some good shots on him and he shrugged them off), and is a true power punching fighter, with underrated defense as well.

I can only see the fight in Lucas's favor, by the 5th Peterson is being hit with too many shots and then a big right hand over the top lands which brings Lamont down. KO5.

Peterson is a more well rounded fighter. He stands a really good shot at taking a decision IF he can finish on his feet. He will likely be the more active fighter.

I think Peterson is better than Lucas, if his chin can hold up...I think he'll win this fight.

Both have good stamina, Lucas more so I reckon.

He never seemed to slow down in the Ajose fight (and yes Ajose was buzzed for several rounds and was at times giving Lucas no punches back) but ****ing hell, to punch as much as he did would usually slow a guy down immensely but he kept on going.

Good break down. ! thing is that if u ask me Judah doesnt hit as hard as Peterson, so i think Peterson is the strongest puncher Lucas has ever faced.

KO5 is a big prediction with Petersons defense

I'm a a fan of Lamont's as well, kinda bummed they booked this fight so soon.

If he wins, I'll be truly shocked.
