Middleweight beltholder Peter Quillin could soon defend his WBO title against promotional stablemate Danny Jacobs.

Lucas Matthysse W 12 Lamont Peterson: A really a terrific matchup, here. I could go back and forth all day on this fight, but I just find myself learning slightly toward Lucas Matthysse.
Record: 6-3 [Mayweather W 12 Guerrero]
Lucas Matthysse KO Lamont Peterson: This fight is as intriguing as anything this year. Lamont Peterson is a terrible starter.
Record: 5-5 [Mayweather W 12 Guerrero]
Lamont Peterson UD 12 Lucas Matthysse: I think one could make very good arguments for both fighters, but I lean toward Lamont Peterson, who I think is tough enough to stand up to what Lucas Matthysse dishes out and boxes and moves a little better than the Argentine. Peterson by close unanimous decision.

Lamont Peterson W 12 Lucas Matthysse: I'm going to again go with an upset: Lamont Petersen by 12-round decision over Lucas Matthysse. I think that the hand speed will be the surprising difference in this one.
Record: 6-2 [Mayweather W 12 Guerrero]
Lucas Matthysse TKO 8 Lamont Peterson: Lucas Matthysse is pound for pound the biggest puncher in boxing, having only lost disputed decisions on the home turfs of Devon Alexander and Zab Judah.
I look for Peterson to be winning the bout until he gets caught and knocked out in the mid to late rounds setting up a huge fight between Matthysse and 140-pound champion Danny Garcia. Matthysse TKO 8 Peterson.
Record: 1-0 [Mayweather TKO 11 Guerrero]
Lamont Peterson SD 12 Lucas Matthysse: This is a very hard fight to pick. Lucas Matthysse has the edge in power, though Lamont Peterson’s no slouch in that department, either. I think Peterson's boxing skills and quickness are superior to Matthysse, and both fighters have an excellent chin.
Record: 5-4 [Mayweather UD 12 Guerrero]
Lamont Peterson W 12 Lucas Matthysse: This is a very intriguing bout, in what looks like a can't miss action fight. Lucas Matthysse has devastating power, while Lamont Peterson likes to stay in the pocket, work the body and use his volume punching, he has to be very smart and not get caught at mid range in a shoot out with "The Machine".
Record: 1-0 [Mayweather W 12 Guerrero]

I wish this fight wasn't taking place at a catchweight, because these are arguably the two best junior welterweights in the world and it should be for more than bragging rights.
By the narrow margin of 11-9, the experts have Lucas Matthysse edging Lamont Peterson in their non-title, 141-pound bout.
