The Barbershop – May 21, 2013

By Allan Scotto

Happy Tuesday, fans!
Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Barbershop,” a column designed to give you a forum to speak your mind about our question(s) of the week or any boxing-related issue you would like to comment on. We welcome and appreciate your participation, so take a minute, scroll down and leave your comment below.
Now on to today’s question(s):
Well, gang, there appears to be a new 140-pound sheriff in town and his name is Lucas Matthysse! He completely blew Lamont Peterson out of the water and fans are talking about him fighting World Junior Welterweight Champion Danny Garcia, WBC lightweight Adrien Broner and possibly the man himself, undefeated WBC welterweight champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. Bear in mind all these guys are within 12 pounds of each other. So, is Matthysse the dragon slayer who finally defeats Mayweather?

You pay the bills, fans, so what do YOU think?
Don’t forget to join the fun on Friday nights as I join Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney on their “Friday Night at the Fights” satellite radio show on Sirius channel 92 and XM channel 208.
We’ll discuss the “Barbershop” question of the week and anything boxing-related you’d like to share or talk about.
The show runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., ET, and you can call in and let us know what you think by dialing 1-866-522-2846.
We look forward to hearing from you!
