Viktor Postol – Boxer: The wiry 5’11” Postol is a classic European stand up boxer that uses distance to his advantage. “The Iceman”  has above-average power in both hands and owns a long stiff jab (72″ reach). Postol is very accurate and knows how to put together effective combinations.  Postol throws a battering ram right uppercut from long range that can wreck havoc on shorter opponents. The Freddie Roach trained tough guy has developed a nice body attack and appears to be a little better each time out of the gate. The shredded Ukrainian is a rare thoroughbred that doesn’t lose much steam down the stretch. Postol, 32, is a tough customer that takes an excellent punch and rarely gets rattled. The tall boxer is a difficult target with precise hand placement and clear ring vision that usually comes with experience (210 rounds). On the downside, Postol is not a fast twitch athlete and is an average fighter in the trenches. Postol’s best wins are over Lucas Matthysse, Hank Lundy and Selcuk Aydin but he has never dueled with an exceptional fighter like the #7 pound-4-pound ranked Crawford. Postol will be coming off a lengthy 9 1/2 month layoff.  Terence Crawford vs Viktor Postol Odds Over/Under is at 10.5 rounds with the Over at -210

Terence Crawford – Boxer:  The lanky 5’8” switch-hitter is a slick and quick boxer/puncher with a complete toolbox. “Bud” can box equally effective from both stances but carries a little more sting as a southpaw. Crawford is heavy-handed and knows when to use his power. Crawford uses distance well behind an active jab and moves with excellent balance and fluidity when boxing on his toes. The proud Omaha, Nebraska native is tenacious, sturdy and vicious when he  decides to slug it out with his opponent. (70” reach). Crawford is not a “speedster” but he has fast hands and throws lots of punches. The intelligence of Crawford (135 rounds) shines in his counterpunching where the slickster makes you miss and makes you pay. Crawford, 28, has an excellent chin and can mentally intimidate with his attitude. Crawford has a good defense but because of his offensive style he occasionally throws at the wrong distance and gets nailed. Crawford has beaten the likes of Yuriorkis Gamboa, Raymond Beltran and Thomas Dulorme but the #30 ranked pound-4-pound Postol is arguably Bud Crawford’s most difficult test because of the Ukrainian’s size and stamina.
