Matthysse-Postol weights

Lucas Matthysse and Viktor Postol both made weight for tomorrow's welterweight championship fight. Both fighters came in at the weight of 139.4 lbs. The fight will be shown live on HBO beginning at 10:15pm. The face-off showed Postol's biggest advantage going into the fight, his height. Matthysse is a heavy favorite going into the bout but Postol's length and boxing skills could present a problem for the Argentinian slugger. A win for Matthysse puts him in line for a showdown with Manny Pacquiao early next year. Both De La Hoya and Arum have stated a keen interest in making the fight happen.
