Lucas Matthysse to fight Viktor Postol for vacant world title

The pair will meet for the WBC light-welter crown in October

LUCAS MATTHYSSE will fight Viktor Postol for the vacant WBC world light-welterweight title at the StubHub Center in Carson, California on October 3.

The belt was vacated by Danny Garcia earlier in the year and this will be Matthysse’s second crack at it, having failed to dethrone the unbeaten American in 2013.

Garcia had been ordered to face Postol, the number one challenger, but instead elected to move to welterweight and face Paul Malignaggi on Saturday night [August 1].
