Crawford Dominates Postol and Unifies Titles



Two-time division champion and 2014 fighter of the year Terrence Crawford dominated Victor Postol. Crawford improved to 29-0 with 20 KOs while outclassing Postol with his speed and power.  What was most impressive about the victory Saturday night at the MGM Grand, was that both fighters were undefeated and in their primes. Viktor Postol (28-1,12KOs) came into the fight undefeated and in his prime, but was unable to land consistent combinations and hurt Crawford. Crawford knocked Postol down twice in the fifth round. Postol won the first three rounds, but after that Crawford took control landing numerous of left hands.

I just stick to what I know, boxing,” Crawford said. “Everybody kept saying I was running from him, but that wasn’t true. I asked for the fight.”

“I feel like I get better every fight. Viktor Postol is a great champion and he was dodged for a reason, but I ain’t the type to duck and dodge anyone.”

The referees called the fight 118-107, 118-107 and 117-108. scored the fight 116-109 for Crawford. According to Bob Arum the winner of this fight, which was Crawford would be one of the leading candidates along with Jessie Vargas(27-1, 10 KOs) to fight Manny Pacquiao November 5th.  My best bet is that Pacquiao would drop to 140 to challenge for Terrence Crawford junior welterweight titles. He is more popular than Vargas and has the ability to sell more paper views than him.  The question would be can Crawford take another step, like he did Saturday night to the elite level and beat the Pac man?


“If Bob Arum wants that fight and my coaches want that fight, that’s something we’ll talk about later,” Crawford said. “I let my coaches handle that. I am a fighter and I will fight anybody. I’m happy and I’m about to go on vacation. We not worried about Manny Pacquiao right now.”

But Crawford made one thing clear — if the fight happens, he will insist that Pacquiao, who has been fighting as a welterweight for years, come down in weight to challenge him for his title belts at junior welterweight.

“It will be at 140,” Crawford said.
