On July 23rd HBO PPV boxing with feature the main event of the night when Terence Crawford takes on Viktor Postol, for a unification WBC WBO title bout. An event like this would normally headline HBO World Championship Boxing, but due to budgeting issues the event will be pay pre view. A lot of fans have voiced their anger at having to dish out $65 to watch this event. I don't see this doing well with the PPV buys.
Terence Crawford who many people have on their p4p list is coming into this fight undefeated. In his last bout this past Feb he knocked out Henry Lundy within five rounds. Crawford is coming off three consecutive knockouts within the past year. Starting his pro career in 2008 he has made a name for himself in the boxing industry. Crawford is the slight favorite and we say "slight" because Postol, is no push over. Crawford is the younger and has a higher knockout percentage.
Viktor Postol, is entering the fight with a sensational upset of Lucas Matthysse in October. Winning the bout by KO in the 10th round. Hence earning the WBC title. While Crawford, sports a 71% KO ratio Postol, is not as big of a puncher. However he is long and ranging an intelligent boxer who fights behind an smart jab and a tight defense. This could trouble Crawford as the fight goes the distance.
