Terence Crawford: I'm Confident That I Will Destroy Viktor Postol!

Discuss the pressure on being seen as one of the NEW faces in boxing.

TERENCE CRAWFORD - "There is no pressure on me being looked at as boxing's next superstar, but there is a lot of hard work in becoming one.  I'm really excited to be on the big stage and I'm on that big stage because I paid my dues in the gym and in the ring. 

That's the reason I have accomplished so much as a fighter -- pride of performance -- and that's why I am going to win on July 23.  If I'm going to solidify my position as the new face of boxing it starts by unifying the 140 pound division."

"I've been fighting people taller than me and larger than me all my life.  I've been short for 28 years and I haven't been stopped yet.  Postol is nothing to me. He's just another guy that I'm fighting. 

I'm not training for Postol, I'm training for myself -- to be the best I can possibly be.  I do that, then no one can beat me.  I'm confident in my abilities and I am confident that I am going to destroy Postol."

[QUOTE=ChiCityExtractz;16882202]Lol if Danny Garcia couldn't KO matthyse but Postol DID? That right there says a lot. Who cares if he can hit, mathysse is a pressure fighter and TBUD likes to sit on the back foot, but he's way more…

You should definitely take Postol at +525 since it's a 50/50 fight, but I still think Crawford wins.

[QUOTE=Check_hooks;16882262]There is very good value taking Postol at those odds. I would bet Postol even if this fight is pick em, which is really should be[/QUOTE] That's the dumbest thing I have seen on this site so far. lol. Although;…

[QUOTE=JQside;16882110]All I know is Postol is 5.5" taller than Gamboa and is slicker.[/QUOTE] Your eye test for "slick" is faulty if you really think Postol is slicker than Gamboa. lol

This is a big night for Crawford, as far as solidifying himself as an elite fighter. Fair or not, his signature win is viewed by a lotta people as simply beating up a smaller guy. Postol is a guy that's…
