Terence Crawford: I’m Confident That I Will Destroy Viktor Postol!


Discuss the pressure on being seen as one of the NEW faces in boxing.

TERENCE CRAWFORD – “There is no pressure on me being looked at as boxing’s next superstar, but there is a lot of hard work in becoming one.  I’m really excited to be on the big stage and I’m on that big stage because I paid my dues in the gym and in the ring.

That’s the reason I have accomplished so much as a fighter — pride of performance — and that’s why I am going to win on July 23.  If I’m going to solidify my position as the new face of boxing it starts by unifying the 140 pound division.”

“I’ve been fighting people taller than me and larger than me all my life.  I’ve been short for 28 years and I haven’t been stopped yet.  Postol is nothing to me. He’s just another guy that I’m fighting.

I’m not training for Postol, I’m training for myself — to be the best I can possibly be.  I do that, then no one can beat me.  I’m confident in my abilities and I am confident that I am going to destroy Postol.”

Undefeated junior welterweight champions TERENCE “Bud” CRAWFORD (28-0, 20 KOs) and “The Iceman” VIKTOR POSTOL (28-0, 12 KOs) will go mano a mano in a 12-round world title unification fight to determine the lineal king of the exciting 140 pound division.
