Video: Antonio Orozco Discusses Humberto Soto Win

Fight fans were out in full force for a day of exciting fights at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Golden Boy Promotions in association with Arano Box Promotions, Top Rank, Inc. and ELITE Boxing Promotion presented an exciting lineup in front of a packed house of 7,025 fight fans. Live on HBO Boxing After Dark, the crowd was served up a slate of fights representing the different corners of the world.

The main event of the evening was a hard-fought face off between Chubut, Argentina's Lucas "La Máquina" Matthysse (37-4, 34 KOs) and undefeated number one contender Viktor "The Iceman" Postol (28-0, 12 KOs) of Kiev, Ukraine for the vacant WBC Super Lightweight World Championship. Prior to the bout, the Argentinians in the crowd erupted in a spirited chant of "Olé Olé Olé", creating a festive vibe in the arena for this highly anticipated showdown.

With just seconds left in round ten, Matthysse was hit by Postol's left uppercut cross that sent him to the ground, effectively ending the match-up. Postol successfully defended his undefeated record and won the match in a knockout.
