Kucher and Postol Are Scheduled for Lebedev vs. Jones

By Alexey Sukachev and Dmitry Mikhalchuk

Two of the best Elite Boxing’s fighters, rising stars Victor Postol and Dmytro Kucher, are packing their luggage and targeting to land in Moscow, Russia, pretty soon. Both Postol and Kucher are invited by Russian promoter Vladimir Hryunov to take part both in his fighters’ training camp and in May 17 Moscow tournament, which is headlined by the Denis Lebedev vs. Guillermo Jones showdown.

WBC #1 ranked Postol (22-0, 10 KOs) has last fought on March 21 in Kiev, when he outpointed American Hank Lundy in a very competitive clash for a vacant WBC international light welterweight title. Postol, 29, will help Russian lightweight Eduard Troyanovskiy to prepare for his upcoming collision (presumably versus former European champion Yuri Romanov). His fight on May 17 is scheduled for eight rounds. Postol is also ranked #14 by the WBO.

On the same card with Postol, Dmytro Kucher, 28, easily outboxed Brazilian Julio Cesar Dos Santos over twelve – also for the WBC international title. In the latest World Boxing Council ranks, the hard-hitting Ukrainian is placed #3. Kucher (21-0, 15 KOs) is also rated #6 by the IBF and #13 by the WBO. The Ukrainian blonde is taken to Chekhov to help WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev to get prepared for his highly dangerous title affair against WBA champion in recess Guillermo Jones. There are talks that Kucher will also help Alexander Povetkin to get ready for his fight. Kucher’s May 17 fight is set for ten rounds of action.
