Victor Postol Fights on April 11, Fires Back at Lundy

By Dmitry Mikhalchuk and Alexey Sukachev

On April 11, WBC/WBA super lightweight champion Danny Garcia (29-0, 17 KOs) collides with reigning IBF champion Lamont Peterson (33-2-1, 17 KOs) at a catchweight of 143 in a non-title fight. One of the most interested observers of the bout will probably be top-notch Ukrainian 140-lber Victor Postol (26-0, 11 KOs), who hopes to get his job done in a warm-up collision on the undercard of Garcia vs. Peterson with as little problems as possible.

WBC #1 Postol is a long-time mandatory challenger for the green belt, owned by Garcia since March 2012. In his sole fight of 2014 Postol produced one of its finest knockouts by nearly beheading Selcuk Aydin.

Preparing for his chance in future, Postol found some time to fire back at the recent rants of American Henry Lundy of a miscarriage of justice in their March 2013 fight and of his desire to avenge that loss to the Ukrainian.

“I cannot see a shade of injustice in my win over Lundy two years ago, and I cannot see why this rematch is necessary at all. We’ve already met in the ring, and the result is my victory. My primary goal now is an upcoming fight for the WBC title – either in a bid for a vacant belt or in a clash against Garcia vs. Peterson winner. It doesn’t matter to me”, said Postol.

“In any case my future opponent can hardly be Lundy, who doesn’t belong to the elite of my weight class. Henry was just a single step on my way, a step that is long foregone. As for the fight in Kiev, yes it was a hard collision but I’ve won it fair and square. The unanimous decision was accepted by all the fans and experts”.

“Instead of those foolish statements, he needed to focus on his future bout with Petr Petrov of Russia. If this match-up wouldn't have been cancelled due to Lundy’s irresponsible behavior, he would have had a much better chance to fight someone relevant in the future. A few, if any, will agree to deal with a guy who can let you down in such miserable fashion."

I don't get why Danny Garcia keeps pretty much hogging all the belts when he knows he's going to move up. Hell he's ALREADY moved up.
