THIS is a match-up of the highest calibre. After winning a world title at lightweight against Ricky Burns, and subsequently defending in style against Yuriorkis Gamboa and Ray Beltran, Terence Crawford stepped up to super-lightweight to win the WBO title there.
Viktor Postol has quietly gone about his business but dazzled as he dismantled Lucas Matthysse, a feared power puncher to win his world title. He meets Crawford at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to unify the WBO and WBC crowns.
Both are unbeaten. They have similar records, Crawford 28-0 (20) to Postol’s 28-0 (12). Scroll down for the latest updates.
