Golden Boy Classics features Garcia, Matthysse, Mayweather

 

In the buildup to the Sept. 14 Showtime pay-per-view card featuring Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Canelo Alvarez and Lucas Matthysse-Danny Garcia, FOX Deportes will air three hours of “Golden Boy Classics” starting at 9 p.m. on Saturday night.

The initial bout will be Matthysse’s disputed split decision loss to left-hander Zab Judah, whom Matthysse dropped in the 10th round of a 12-rounder in November of 2010.

At 10 p.m., Garcia’s first of two triumphs over four-division titlewinner Erik Morales — a unanimous decision victory for the WBC’s 140-pound belt — will be shown.

Finally, at 11 p.m., will be the airing of Mayweather’s unanimous decision over Miguel Cotto, which earned him the WBA’s junior middleweight title.
