Oner: If Aydin Beats Postol, He'll Beat Danny Garcia

Selcuk Aydin has only one goal in his mind: The "Turkish Warrior" wants to become world champion. On May 17th he could make a huge step towards a world title when he faces unbeaten Ukrainian Viktor Postol in Inglewood, California. The winner of this WBC super lightweight eliminator will be mandatory challenger for unified WBC and WBA champion Danny Garcia.

Aydin vs. Postol will be live on HBO as televised co-feature of the clash between Juan Manuel Marquez and Mike Alvarado. "This is Selcuk's chance to get back into the mix and all the way to the top again", says promoter Ahmet Oner. "He already fought at this level when he faced Robert Guerrero for the WBC championship at 147. In that fight he just couldn't pull the trigger. But I think his natural power will be a bigger factor at 140. If he gets past Postol I am sure that he can beat Garcia, too. But he has to live up to his potential. I am sure that it will be an exciting and brutal fight."

Aydin is currently in training camp in his hometown Trabzon with head coach Robert Rolle getting ready and in shape for the big fight. His sparring partners can tell that the "Turkish Warrior" is taking this fight very serious. Light middleweight contender Gogi Knezevic had to quit and leave camp after only one very tough eight round session because of neck problems. Now European champion Michele Di Rocco gets to feel Aydin's dedication and will power. "Selcuk is very focused and very strong. On fight night he will be in perfect shape", says coach Rolle. "I think his aggressiveness and pure power will be too much for Postol."
