Jose Ramirez-Viktor Postol Weigh-In Results From MGM Grand In Las Vegas

Jose Ramirez and Viktor Postol passed the next-to-last hurdle Friday before they can finally fight Saturday night.

Ramirez and Postol both made weight for their 12-round, 140-pound title fight, which will headline a six-bout card ESPN+ will stream from MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas. Ramirez stepped on the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s scale at 139.8 pounds, slightly heavier than Postol, who officially weighed 139.7 pounds.

If both boxers pass COVID-19 tests administered after the weigh-in, Ramirez, 28, and Postol, 36, will fight for Ramirez’s WBC super lightweight title and his WBO junior welterweight crown.

Ramirez (25-0, 17 KOs), of Avenal, California, is listed as a 7-1 favorite versus Postol (31-2, 12 KOs), of Kiev, Ukraine. Postol is the mandatory challenger for Ramirez’s WBC title.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused two postponements of the Ramirez-Postol fight.

They were first scheduled to fight February 1 at Mission Hills Resort Haikou in Haikou, China, but it was pushed back indefinitely January 23, the day after Postol arrived in Haikou. It was rescheduled for May 9 at Save Mart Center in Fresno, California, but it was pushed back 3½ more months.
