Mohamed Mimoune Very Confident of Shocking Viktor Postol

France’s Mohamed Mimoune wants to make a big impression on Saturday night, when he faces former world champion Viktor Postol in a Showtime televised co-feature.

The fight has been sanctioned as a WBC 140-pound title eliminator, and takes place from The Chelsea inside of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and presented by Premier Boxing Champions.

In the main event, former two-division world champion Rances Barthelemy faces off against former lightweight world champion Robert Easter Jr. for the vacant WBA lightweight title.

With only two knockouts in his 23 fights in the ring, he's not a puncher - but promises to outbox the taller Postol.

He's been riding an undefeated streak since 2013, while Postol is only one fight removed from a decision loss to Josh Taylor.

“Postol is one of the best that I will face but I am not afraid. I am confident I will win. I’ve studied him together with my coach and we have a strategy in place that you will see on Saturday," Mimoune said.

“I’m very excited for this opportunity. It is every boxer’s dream to fight in Las Vegas and I am happy and ready to show the Americans what I have. I have no issues with Postol’s height advantage. I am prepared for it. It is not my first time facing off against a boxer that is taller than me. I have a very good reach as well, but it is my speed that will beat him.
“I have worked very hard after my losses and put all my effort into bettering my performance. I’m stronger and more mature now than ever. I know I have to win and I will win. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to fight for the world title after I win on Saturday night. I‘m dedicating this fight to all French people and I hope they make sure to not miss it on Saturday.”
