Lucas Matthysse takes on Viktor Postol for the vacant WBC super-lightweight title on Saturday night (early hours of Sunday morning) at the StubHub Center in California.
TV: BoxNation, from 2am.
The Argentinian ace Matthysse (37-3) faces the unbeaten "Iceman" Postol from Ukraine (27-0) this weekend.
Oscar De La Hoya, who is promoting the fight, predicts that it could soon turn into a brawl.
“Viktor Postol is a lanky, tall fighter with some great knock outs under his belt and is being trained by Freddie Roach, which I know will get him in great shape. Matthysse with have his hands full with Postol,” De La Hoya said.
"After the 3rd, 4th round, I can see it being a brawl. I can see Lucas Matthysse having to chase down Postol and do some damage. When have you ever seen a boring Lucas Matthysse fight? It’s going to be a fun, action-packed fight.”
