Walter Dario Matthysse (born August 29, 1978) is an Argentine former professional boxer who competed from 2002 to 2009, and challenged once for the IBF welterweight title in 2007. 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)
