As previously reported by several news sources last week, but not yet verified by Golden Boy Promotions, Danny “Swift” Garcia (26-0, 16 KOs) will defend his WBA and WBC junior welterweight titles against Lucas Martin Matthysse (34-2, 32 KOs). Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer confirmed the rumor during a conference call earlier today.
“I’m excited to show the world why I am the best 140lb fighter in the world! Sept 14 it’s on! #TeamDSG,” Garcia stated via his official Twitter account.
Garcia-Matthysse will be shown live as the co-feature to the September 14 Pay-Per-View junior middleweight title unification mega-fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, and will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Nevada.
