Super-lightweight Siar Ozgul is ready to bounce back from his sole career defeat by taking on former world champion Viktor Postol in Glasgow on November 3.

The London-based Ozgul (14-1-KO3) lost his Southern Area super-lightweight title in a York Hall classic against Mikey Sakyi back in July but heads straight back into the biggest fight of his life against ‘Iceman’ Postol.

With the Ukrainian (29-2-KO12) a reserve for the World Boxing Super Series event at The SSE Hydro – starring Josh Taylor vs. Ryan Martin – Ozgul is determined to defy the step up in class and announce himself to the global 140lb scene.

Ozgul said: “First of all, I would like to thank the World Boxing Super Series and my management team MTK Global for getting me this big opportunity.

“I don’t care who I fight. All I know is that I’m coming to fight and to win. I will give my whole heart for this fight and I believe I can win.

“It’s a real privilege to be fighting on such a big show on the undercard of two big fights in Josh Taylor vs. Ryan Martin and Ryan Burnett vs. Nonito Donaire.

“I think Taylor will win the tournament and then you have Burnett, who is a great world champion. It’s going to be a great night of boxing.”
