It’s a matchup of the very best at super-lightweight, two genuine 140lbs world champions in the prime of their careers. Crawford vs Postol who wins? It’s a tough one to predict – which is always a good sign for fight fans.
WBO super-lightweight champion Terence Crawford (28-0-20KO) is regarded by many as one of the very best fighters in the sport of boxing at the moment, pound for pound.
He appears to have everything you could ask of a fighter – skills to burn, power, movement, spite, solid defence, speed, good footwork and an indomitable will to win.
The man from Omaha, Nebraska is now coming into the very best years of his prize fighting career at the age of 28 and knows that if he keeps winning in impressive fashion on platforms like HBO, that superstar status in boxing could await for him in the coming years, with the associated financial rewards that it brings and a long way from previous troubles in the past – that even included been shot in the head outlined in this special feature.
But there is a storm coming on Saturday night for him in the form of undefeated WBC champion Viktor Postol (28-0-12KO) from the Ukraine.
Known as ‘The Iceman’ he comes into the fight riding some impressive momentum, having become the first fighter to stop the much respected Lucas Matthysse last time out back in October 2015.
Trained by the renowned Freddie Roach, Postol will be just as hungry as Crawford for success when he enters the ring at the weekend and will also enjoy a height and reach advantage over ‘Bud’.
The winner of this fight at the weekend arguably will catapult themselves into the upper stratosphere of the top five pound for pound rankings in world boxing, or at least in or around there.
Our own Peter Wells gave his prediction this weekend on the fight but this outstanding build-up show by Top Rank ahead of this weekend’s clash – will also definitely help you formulate your pick:
