Viktor Postol

At the age of 32, Viktor is a seven-year pro. A former WBC super lightweight world champion universally considered one of the top 140-pounders in the world, he is a stablemate of former WBO junior welterweight world champion Ruslan Provodnikov and 2012 Olympic gold medalist Egor Mekhontsev – all three are managed by Vadim Kornilov. Viktor signed with Kornilov in early 2014.

A boxer-puncher with excellent skills and movement, Viktor has been trained for his last four fights by Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach and his assistant, Marvin Somodio, at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles, California. His original trainer and father-figure, Alexandr Polishchuk, is also always in his corner.

Viktor won the vacant WBC title with a sensational performance on October 3 in Carson, California – a spectacular one-punch upset 10th-round knockout against Lucas Matthysse.

In his last fight on July 23 in Las Vegas, he lost a 12-round unanimous decision in a title unification bout against WBO junior welterweight world champion Terence Crawford.

Crawford fought in the lefthanded stance and kept Viktor off-balance with constant movement – he landed the sharper punches and won by decisive scores.

After the fight, Viktor said through an interpreter, “I thought it was a good fight between two technicians, but he was quicker than me. He is one of the best fighters in the world. I just didn’t have the answers for him.”

Trainer Freddie Roach added, “He was just too fast for us. I was surprised how fast and how good he was. I’m very impressed with his talent.”
