There will be even more Argentinian action when hard-hitting Lucas Matthysse steps into the ring as he looks to claim his first world title as he takes on the unbeaten Viktor Postol for the vacant WBC light-welterweight title this Saturday night.
The 33-year-old Matthysse, who is one of boxing’s most feared punchers with an incredible 34 knockouts from 37 victories, will have to be at his very best when he faces Freddie Roach trained Postol.
The Ukrainian hotshot has a 5-inch height advantage and has trained with some of boxing’s biggest names in his preparation for the live BoxNation bill.
“I’m glad to be here; I’ve waited for this opportunity a long time. I have been preparing for this fight like no other training camp I’ve had before,” said Postol.
“I’ve had a great camp. I’ve sparred with Manny Pacquiao and many other great fighters at the Wild Card Gym. I have all the experience now that people will underestimate. Good luck to Matthysse, and I can’t wait for this fight.”
Matthysse, however, appears unmoved and is raring to go this weekend.
“I’m very excited, I’m happy to be back in Carson to fight at the Stub Hub Center this Saturday.
“Thank you to Viktor Postol and his team for taking this fight. I can’t wait for fight night,” Matthysse said.
Ahead of Saturday night’s big US bill there will be some thrilling domestic action when undefeated middleweight Tommy Langford goes up against Cristian Fabian Rios for the WBO Inter-Continental title, with former world champion Paul Butler facing Hector Romaldo Guzman as part of a fantastic Wolverhampton card.
Matthysse v Postol is live from 2am on Saturday night.
