WBC world super-lightweight champion Viktor Postol is singing the praises of his trainer Freddie Roach ahead of his July 23 unification fight with WBO champion Terence Crawford.

The unbeaten Ukrainian has been training out of Roach’s famed Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles for several years, and has since become the 140lb division leader.

He knocked out Lucas Matthysse in October to earn that mantle, and feels his work with Roach will play a key role in the upcoming fight with Crawford.
