Photos: Matthysse, Postol Ripped and Ready For War

The weights are in for Saturday's HBO televised doubleheader from the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

In the headline event, Lucas Matthysse (37-3, 34 KOs) of Trelew, Chubut, Argentina and Viktor Postol (27-0, 11 KOs) of Kiev, Ukraine, compete for a vacant 140-pound title belt in a 12-round super lightweight fight. Both fighters weighed in at 139.4-pounds.

Opening the evening is a ten-round super lightweight bout featuring Humberto Soto (65-8-2, 35 KOs) and Antonio Orozco (22-0, 15 KOs). Soto, 35, of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico, is a skilled veteran with three division world titles on his resume and more than three times the professional experience of his opponent. Orozco, a 27-year-old Mexican native who currently hails from San Diego, is seeking national recognition in a highly competitive division.

Soto came in at 140.2-pounds and Orozco was 140.6-pounds.

Matthysse, celebrating his 33rd birthday this week, fought the rugged and relentless Ruslan Provodnikov last April, scoring a thrilling triumph in a contest many ringside observers view as the leading candidate for fight of the year honors. The undefeated Postol is a skilled 31-year-old who is embracing the challenge of meeting one of the sport’s most devastating punchers at a venue known for eye-opening outcomes.

This could be a total nightmare for La Maquina. Still rooting for him though.

Matthysse looks like a skeleton and Postol is a tough guy, it'll likely be a tough fight for both whichever way it ends. If Postol beats Matthysse he should prove to be a threat to everyone from 140-147.

[QUOTE=FerFAL;16102823]Matthysse is going for the KO. He's box a bit but its clear he's got no respect for Postol's power. Unless Postol is suddenly some master boxer he wont be able to keep Lucas at bay and he will get…
