El argentino Lucas "La Máquina" Matthysse (38-4, 35 nocáuts), actual monarca welter Intercontinental AMB y campeón welter Intercontinental OMB, sostuvo una conferencia de prensa este martes, en Santa Monica, California, de cara a su combate a 12 asaltos por el cetro mundial welter de la AMB ante Tewa Kiram (38-0, 28 nocáuts) en el "Fabuloso" Forum en Inglewood, California. 

El filipino Mercito "No Mercy" Gesta (31-1-2, 17 KOs), quien participará en el segundo duelo estelar ante Jorge "El Nino De Oro" Linares (43-3, 27 nocáuts) por el título mundial ligero AMB, también participo en la conferencia. 

El evento de dos combates estelares será televisado en vivo por HBO Boxing After Dark iniciando a las 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. 

Matthysse, el artista de nocaut de Trelew, Chubut, Argentina, combatirá en el primer hoque co estelar a 12 asaltos contra el estrella tailandesa Tewa Kiram (38-0, nocauts) por el campeonato vacante welter de la Asociación Mundial de Boxeo (WBA por sus siglas en inglés). 

Linares, el venezolano de 32 años de edad quien es conocido como uno de los peleadores más destacados del mundo, realizará su segunda presentación consecutiva en el Forum para defender sus títulos mundiales ligero de la AMB, Diamante CMB y Ring Magazine, ante Mercito "No Mercy" Gesta (31-1-2, 17 nocáuts) en el segundo choque co estelar de estrellas a 12 giros. 

Kiram, después de debutar como boxeador profesional cuando apenas tenía 15 años, ha destruido a 38 oponentes en fila, 28 de los cuales jamás escucharon la campanada final. Kiram capturó el cinto interino welter de la PABA en solamente su sexta combate, y lo defendió seis veces antes de ser reconocido como campeón welter de la PABA. Kiram ha defendido su cinto 24 veces, y peleará por primera vez fuera de Tailandia este 27 de enero. 

Gesta, el púgil filipino de 30 años de edad, ha ganado sus últimos seis combates, derrotando a fuertes oponentes como Gilberto "El Flaco" González y el contendiente Martín "El Brochas" Honorio. Gesta tendrá su segunda oportunidad de campeonato mundial después de su única derrota, que fue ante Miguel "Títere" Vázquez por el campeonato mundial ligero de la FIB. 

Matthysse vs. Kiram es un pleito a 12 episodios por el vacante campeonato mundial welter de la AMB presentado por Golden Boy Promotions en asociación con Arano Box y Galaxy Promotions. Linares vs. Gesta, es una batalla a 12 giros por los títulos mundial ligero AMB, Diamante CMB y Ring Magazine presentado por Golden Boy Promotions en asociación con Teiken Promotions.

Here's what today's participants had to say at today's press conference: 

LUCAS "LA MAQUINA" MATTHYSSE, WBA Inter-Continental Welterweight and WBO International Welterweight Champion:

 "I'm happy to be back in the United States. We're preparing well. I've had a great camp. I started camp early in Argentina, and now I'm looking forward to closing camp with Joel Diaz in Indio, California. I don't train for the knockout, but if the knockout comes, I'll welcome it. I fought everyone at 140. I want to do the same as I did at 140; I want to fight the best." 

MERCITO "NO MERCY" GESTA, Lightweight Contender:

"I know it will be a tough fight. I'm a challenger, an underdog. But I love that feeling. It makes me hungrier, train harder and box smarter. I've worked with Jorge [Linares] before with some sparring. I know sparring is different, but I did well. Still, I know his style and power. With the help of Coach Freddie, we'll have the right strategy. I am hungry for this title. I'll do anything to get that title. I will give a good show in that fight." 

FREDDIE ROACH, Trainer to Mercito Gesta:

 "We're in a real tough fight. My guy [Mercito Gesta] is definitely getting ready for this fight. We're going over a lot of strategy. We started sparring yesterday, and it went well. We still have a lot of time to work a little more. He's looking good so far. I feel we can win this fight. This is a good opportunity for us and we have to take advantage of it as much as we can." 

JOEL DIAZ, Trainer to Lucas Matthysse:

"I'm really happy to be part of Lucas Matthysse's team. He's a great fighter. Coming in he's very motivated. In my first fight him with him, he did really well with Emmanuel Taylor. Coming in to his second fight, he was motivated and happy. I always say that a happy fighter is a successful fighter. You're going to see a great Matthysse, one who is ready to become world champion." 

ROBERTO DIAZ, Head Matchmaker of Golden Boy Promotions:

"On January 27, Argentine knockout artist "La Maquina" Matthysse will battle Thai superstar Tewa Kiram in a 12-round battle for the vacant WBA Welterweight World Championship at the "Fabulous" Forum.That night, Golden Boy Promotions will have a double main event at the Forum, with Jorge "El Nino De Oro" Linares battling the once-defeated Mercito "No Mercy" Gesta in a 12-round fight for Linares' WBA, WBC Diamond and Ring Magazine Lightweight World Championships." 

"Lucas Matthysse is a power puncher who is one of the best 140-pounders of this era and has defeated some of the very best of that division. Mathysse recently entered welterweight division when he stopped Emmanuel "Tranzformer" Taylor, and he is ready to fight the very best at welterweight." 

"Gesta has not tasted defeat in six fights, beating quality opponents including Gilberto "El Flaco" Gonzalez and former contender Martin "El Brochas" Honorio. He is hungry for this fight and for this chance to be world champion."
