WBO junior welterweight champion Terence Crawford (29-0, 20 KOs) added the WBC belt to his list of accomplishments by winning a wide 12-round unanimous decision over former champion Viktor Postol (28-1, 12 KOs) at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, NV. Saturday night.
Crawford used speed and agility to frustrate Postol over the course of the bout.
After clipping Postol with a lead right hand in the opening round, Crawford switched to southpaw. He stuck with that strategy for the rest of the fight.
In rounds two and three, Crawford continued to use his legs and box. Postol landed a shot on the inside, but Crawford connected with a combination. Postol tried to pick up the pace, but his jab, so effective a against Lucas Matthysse in his last fight, wasn’t landing. Crawford connected with two hard hooks in round four.
