Victor Postol-DeMarcus Corley Set For 10/27 in Kiev

By Alexey Sukachev

A pair of intriguing bouts top the October 27 show planned at Club Sportlife in Kiev, Ukraine.

In the main event, unbeaten contender Victor Postol (19-0, 9 KOs) will defend his WBC Silver International light welterweight title against DeMarcus Corley (39-19-1, 23 Kos).

Postol fights for the fourth time in 2012, with all of his bouts staged at the very venue hosting his next contest.

The 38-year old Corley has won two straight – including an upset win over Paul McCloskey - heading into a bout with an opponent 10 years his junior. The fight marks his returns to the Ukraine for the first time since dropping a 12-round decision to Sergey Fedchenko, who went on to lose a title fight to Juan Manuel Marquez earlier this year.

On the same bill, Dmytro Kucher (18-0, 14 KOs) is scheduled to defend the same version of the title at cruiser weight against another former champ Steve Herelius (21-2-1, 12 KOs) of France.

Kucher – like Postol – is a familiar face at Club Sportlife. This weekend marks his fifth appearance at the venue in 2012. This particular showdown is a step up, even with Herelius having not fought since a failed title bid against Yoan Pablo Hernandez in Feb. ’11.

Elite Boxing Promotions stages the show.

Even Chop Chop never turned gay. He's like the Prince of boxing. We'll never know this guy's sexual preference or care even though he dresses up like a woman for fun.
