July 23rd, 2016. Two undefeated top Light Welterweights; Terence Crawford and “The Iceman” Viktor Postol met on this day as Crawford makes the 3rd defense of his WBO Light Welterweight Title while Postol’s attempt to retain his WBC strap with his 1st defense. Additionally , the vacant The Ring Light Welterweight Title is also on the line.

Both fighters came into the fight with an unblemished record of 28-0.

In April 2015, Crawford beat Thomas Dulorme via TKO6 to bag the WBO Light Welterweight Title and made two successful defenses against Hank Lundy & Dierry Jean.

In October 2015, Postol scored a KO10 victory over power punching Lucas Matthysse to win the WBC strap and Crawford is set to be his 1st title defense.

Going into the fight, Crawford had notable victories over Thomas Dulorme, Hank Lundy, Dierry Jean, Ricky Burns, Breidis Prescott, Raymundo Beltrán & Yuriorkis Gamboa. On the other hand, Postol hold meaningful wins against Hank Lundy, DeMarcus Corley & Lucas Matthysse.

Freddie Roach believed that Crawford’s stance switching will not trouble Postol as Postol was Manny Pacquiao’s sparring partner and according to Roach, he sparred so often with Pacquiao that he had gotten accustomed to dealing with the southpaw stance.

As the fight begins, Crawford started off in the orthodox stance but after 20 seconds he switched to southpaw and from the on he never revert back to orthodox. The fight was pretty even for the first four rounds before the momentum switched in Crawford’s favor in the 5th frame.

Crawford scored a knockdown within opening seconds of the 5th, and then another knockdown in the middle of the round. From then on, Crawford proceeded to dominate the fight and win every other round using lateral movements with an impeccable defense whilst counter punching effectively.

It is the first and second time that Postol had tasted the canvas in his pro career.

In the 8th round, Postol was almost down again when he got knocked off balance from a Crawford right hook. In the 11th round, Postol lost a point for excessively hitting behind the head.

Postol would occasionally land good right hands to the head and body but was not busy nor effective enough to make a difference. In the 9th round, Postol literally landed only one punch. Postol rallied in the last two rounds but it was too late as Crawford won a lopsided UD.

Crawford remains undefeated today with a record of 32(23)-0.
