Matty ain't beating Peterson. It won't even be that competitive.

I disagree.  While I liked the high guard defense Peterson utilized in the Holt fight, Matthysse isn't mentally fragile like Holt, and Peterson doesn't have the power to keep Matthysse off of him.  Not sure if Peterson can wither a phone booth type storm for 12 rounds against a puncher like Matthysse.

Seriously, outside of Mattys punch, he has nothing else. Yeah, he's got a chin but he's not this skilled fighter people seem to act like he is. He can be outboxed and out maneuvered. Peterson wins this..

Both Judah and Alexander did. Regardless of how you feel about those decisions, the fact is they both did. Peterson is at the very least more rugged than both.

He actually has decent footwork as well.  He can stand and bang, or move on his toes if he needs to.  He isn't a straight up flat foot plodder if you haven't noticed. I don't see Peterson staying on the outside and boxing.  It will turn into a phone booth after a few rounds.

Neither Judah or Alexander fought Matthysse in a phone booth, and both Judah and Alexander benefited from hometown scoring.

I dont see anything in Peterson that Matthyse cannot handle. Matthyse "beat" Alexander and Judah in their own style. He'll have no problem finding Peterson.

This guy has not a single notable win. Not one! But everyone is talking like he's the best kept secret or something. Guys, Matty ain't shit. Regardless of how you feel about his fight with Judah, what I did notice was for someone who was supposed to be such a feared puncher, he couldn't even run Judah outta the ring whereas everyone else has. That's all the barometer I need on him.
