Standing 5’11” and blessed with a 73½” reach, Viktor Postol is tall and long for a super lightweight. He is both the taller fighter and has a reach advantage going into Saturday night’s fight against Terence Crawford.

Postol needs to utilize his length in this fight to come out victorious. Postol has the technical expertise to use his length to keep Crawford out of rhythm.

With his reach advantage, he needs to use his jab effectively to keep Crawford on the outside, where he will be able to set up his straight right hand.

Using length to his advantage will be key to keeping Crawford at a distance, allowing Postol can control the pace of the fight.
