Postol, Roach confident of Crawford unification victory
Undefeated World Boxing Council super lightweight champion, Viktor Postol (28-0, 12 KOs) from Kiev, Ukraine, fights Terence “Bud” Crawford (28-0, 20 KOs), from Omaha, Nebraska on July 23rd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, through HBO Pay-Per-View.
Postol’s legendary trainer Freddie Roach claims that even though his pupil is the underdog, he’ll gain victory and with it, a pat on the back!
“We’ve been working hard, also corrected some things and we will win this victory,” said Roach.
“Viktor is one of very best fighters. I cant understand why he the underdog. This match with Crawford is important to us all. I have respect for Terence. He certainly has got talent, but I am sure we will get the victory.”
Postol added: “I have the best trainer in my corner, Freddie brings out the best in me and I proved it by defeating Lucas Matthysse and Selcuk Aydin. Both are top ranked fighters.
“On July 23rd we will repeat history and I will defend my WBC belt to prove who is the best super lightweight”, he promised.
