The weights are set for an explosive doubleheader, one of the best in Ukraine this year, which is set to take place tomorrow at the Sportlife nightclub in Kiev. Two title collisions for WBC Silver International belts at the cruiserweight and light welterweight limits are aimed at firing the local crowd up.
At 140, former world champion DeMarcus Corley (39-19-1, 23 KOs), who has transformed himself into an upset artist, will try to get the third consecutive win of his almost improbable 2012 revival against undefeated Victor Postol (19-0, 9 KOs). Corley, 38, has previously defeated 18-0 Gabriel Bracero and 23-1 Paul McCloskey earlier this year. In another competitive fight, hard-charging local cruiserweight hitter Dmytro Kucher (18-0, 14 KOs) battles former WBA interim titlist Steve Herelius (21-2-1, 12 KOs) from France.
Both contests are scheduled for twelve rounds.
Tonight, all four participants of the main events have successfully tipped the scales for their upcoming title clashes:
Dmytro Kucher 197 vs Steve Herelius 198.5
Victor Postol 139.7 vs DeMarcus Corley 135.5
Four more bouts will constitute the undercard.
