Walter Matthysse (born August 29, 1978) is an Argentine professional boxer who fights at light middleweight, and is a former welterweight world title challenger. He is the elder brother of professional boxer Lucas Matthysse.

Professional career[edit]

On July 14, 2007, Kermit Cintrón was dominant in his first title defense, knocking down Argentine Matthysse three times on his way to a knockout victory twenty-nine seconds into the second round.[1] Prior to this match, Matthysse had never been knocked down by any opponent, although he had suffered a tenth-round technical knockout in May 2006 at the hands of Paul Williams. (The Cintrón-Matthysse bout was the main undercard fight of a WBO title bout between challenger Williams and incumbent Antonio Margarito)
