After all the recent mismatches, excuse making, fight cancellations and postponements, and straight up ducks fight fans finally got a glimpse of what they really want last night: an actual fight between two top fighters of the same weight division. Terence “Bud” Crawford took on Viktor “Iceman” Postol at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Both men were undefeated going into the contest, and both had distinguished themselves as the class of their division. Crawford had shown his quality to the American public by defeating a number of challengers on HBO over the past few years such as Ricky Burns, Yuriorkis Gamboa, and Dierry Jean. What he lacked was a very top level name on is resume to prove his status as a top fighter and pound for pound contender. Crawford has slick skills and some serious power.
