Live scorecard on WBN tonight: Matthysse v Dallas Jr.

Phil Jay 26/01/2013

World Boxing News will score the interim light-welterweight title contest between current belt holder Lucas Matthysse and challenger Mike Dallas Jr. tonight as the two battle it out the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Matthysse, 30, is eyeing up a shot at full title holder Danny Garcia this year and needs to make another statement against ‘The Silent Assasin’ similar to those made against Humberto Soto and Ajose Olusegun in 2012 to keep on track.

26 year-old Dallas gets his chance to break into the big time with two straight wins on the back of his only two losses in 22 outings, but faces an uphill struggle against rugged Argentinian.

Live scoring will also include the welterweight clash between Selcuk Aydin and Jesus Soto Karass. Log on to the WBN website from 10pm ET/PT and 3am in the UK to follow the scorecards as they happen.
