HBO SPORTS® PRESENTS: “TERENCE CRAWFORD: MY FIGHT”
LAS VEGAS, NV. (July 11, 2016) — There are only 12 days remaining before undefeated junior welterweight champions TERENCE “Bud” CRAWFORD and “The Iceman” VIKTOR POSTOL collide in their 12-round world title unification fight to determine the lineal king of the exciting 140 pound division. The battle between Top-10 pound for pound gladiators will take place Saturday, July 23, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.
Narrated by Liev Schreiber, HBO Sports Presents TERENCE CRAWFORD: MY FIGHT,” an in-depth look at one of the sport’s most talented competitors, is now available to view in its entirety via the following You Tube link.
Promoted by Top Rank®, in association with Tecate and the motion picture “Hands of Stone,” the Crawford vs. Postol world championship event will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. PT.
Crawford (28-0, 20 KOs), of Omaha, Neb., already a two-division world champion, has won four of his last five bouts by stoppage. The consensus Top-10 pound-for-pound fighter will be making his MGM Grand Garden debut in his third title defense as World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior welterweight world champion.
Postol (28-0, 12 KOs), from Kiev, Ukraine, put his stamp on the boxing landscape when he scored a 10th-round knockout of the heavily-favored former world champion Lucas Matthysse to capture the vacant World Boxing Council (WBC) super lightweight world title on October 3, 2015. Having won two of his last three fights by knockout, the Freddie Roach-trained Postol will be making his first defense of that title.
