Manny looked decent all things considered, however he had a guy in front of him offering about as much resistance as a heavy bag. The outcome shouldn't have been too much of a surprise. Quite frankly I thought Matthysse looked lousy and pretty well finished the last time that I saw him fight almost three years ago when he got knocked out by the light hitting Postol.
