In his first fight outside of the United States or Canada, WBC #9 ranked light welterweight and previously fringe lightweight contender "Hammering" Hank Lundy gave a stern test to WBC #3 ranked Viktor Postol of Ukraine - especially in the later rounds - but lost a close unanimous decision to his counterpart. 

Postol (now 22-0, 10 KOs) looked superior to the American in the first half of the bout. He was shimmering with confidence, boxing circles around Lundy and scoring constantly with his jab and fast combinations. Lundy (22-3-1, 11 KOs), on the other hand, exploded in the third part of the match-up, pressing Postol and forcing him to pay much more attention to his defense. 

The end of the bout was contested hotly but Lundy had the upper hand. At the end, it wasn't enough, and all three judges preferred the Ukrainian with almost identical scorecards: 116-112 (twice) and 116-113. Postol acquired a vacant WBC International light welterweight title. 


Highly regarded cruiserweight bomber Dmytro Kucher (21-0, 15 KOs) took the long road to a well deserved victory, dominating Brazilian veteran Julio Cesar Dos Santos (22-2, 20 KOs) over twelve rounds. The WBC #4, IBF #6 and WBO #13 ranked Ukrainian was in full control of the fight but didn't press for a knockout against the opponent, whose only goal was to survive the bout. All three judges had it identically: 120-108 - for Kucher. There were no knockdowns.


Crowd-pleasing Russian prospect Marat Kulumbegov (10-0-1, 6 KOs) worked hard to score a unanimous decision over Kazakh import Mikhail "El Khattab" Krinitsin (11-3-2, 7 KOs) in an eight-round super middleweight fight. Scores were: 80-72, 78-74 and 78-75 - for Kulumbegov. Also, super bantamweight Oleg Malinovskiy (7-0, 2 KOs) completed a clean sweep of the Kazakh fighter Zhandos Zhetpisbayev (5-5, 2 KOs) over six: 60-54 (x3).

Lundy didn't work heard enough
comment by Tuavale, on 03-21-2013
Lundy was in it and could land the jab to get him close but he simply didn't let his hands go enough. Every time he stopped and turtled, Postol scored to the body and head. Lundy did a lt of whiffing in the fight, throwing shots from too far outside. If he pressed better, he might have had a bett...

did lundy actually lose or was it a bogus decesion?

Good win for Postol. Onward and upward.
