Crawford-Postol : Background
Viktor Postol has taken that next step once he joined up with Freddie Roach. This will be his first defense of the WBC belt he gained when he stopped Lucas Matthysse late last year. Meanwhile, Terrence Crawford has been highly thought of for years. He is in the top ten for overall pound for pound best fighter by Ring Magazine. This is why he enters the fight as an almost -500 favorite over another undefeated fighter.
Free Pick for This One
For those that want to brush up on the basics on how to bet boxing, here is an excellent refresher from I Got Sportsbook to help you along. For those ready for the next level, what Crawford does better than anyone else is that he can fight from many stances. Either hand hand has excellent speed and power. He understands the geometry of the ring like few others. Cuts down on angles, sees lanes to escape, and traps opponents when he has the advantage. Remarkably skilled in almost every facet of the game. Postol’s best bet is attrition. Viktor wore down Matthysse. Viktor’s body type and superior fitness to almost everyone else in the sport means he can press, be relentless, and just sap the strength in the legs in this one. Without great knockout power, Postol has to go the distance here to win.
Over in the rounds should be taken as this will go the distance. Postol will be light on his feet for most of the night. Crawford will be loathe to go ultra aggressive because that would leave him open. Usually, Crawford wins here but almost always this goes the over in the rounds. Bet the fight to go the distance and decision for your best bet for profit on July 23rd. Good fortune and we will see you next time here at APEX Boxing.
