WBC World Super-Lightweight Champion Viktor Postol is “looking forward to destroying” Terence Crawford’s unbeaten reign as World Champion.
Crawford, who holds the WBO version of the 140 lbs World Title, is the strong favourite with the bookies but Postol believes despite his plus points, he has the edge going into the fight.
“What differentiates Crawford from many other fighters are his skills and technical attributes. From a mental aspect he is a very clever boxer, always using his mind in the ring, changing stances, all the time adapting to different types of opponents,” explained the unbeaten Ukrainian.
The MGM Grand in Las Vegas plays host to this intriguing unification bout with ‘The Iceman’ taking confidence from his last win over Lucas Matthysse.
“It does not mean he is the best I have fought. I think Lucas Matthysse is a higher-level fighter than Crawford and everyone knows how my fight with Matthysse ended, with him knocked out and the WBC belt around my waist.”
In closing, the Freddie Roach trained fighter had a strong warning for the switch hitting sensation: “I am looking forward to destroying Crawford - destroying his perfect record and destroying his reign as world champion!"
