    Ends in nearly an identical fashion as the Hooker match.

    Think so? Postol went the distance with Crawford and Taylor. I think he's a very consistent operator despite his shortcomings at the highest level(actually rate him as Crawford's best scalp) He's kind the Pulev at the weight basic but a master of what he does with a workman like attitude in and outside of the ring. People will write him off or forget he exists altogether until he steps in the ring and gives a solid showing. Not tipping him to pull the upset here but it honestly wouldn't surprise me and I think he'll do well in a losing effort. Definitely the toughest and most proven operator that Ramirez has stepped in with thus far.

    I was quite impressed with Ramirez last time out, and with the way Postol is now, I think Ramirez stops him.

    Yeah, stylistically Ramirez is all wrong for Viktor, and we know Ramirez is fairly iron chinned and won't be as easily dissuaded by anything Postol has for him as Taylor and Bud was.

    I suppose. Postol might not have the same kind of durability after the Taylor fight either and now being in his mid 30s.

    This looks like a possible upset. Postol only lost to guys above Ramirez’s level.

    Postol's a solid operator. Think he can go the distance and maybe steal a few rounds in the process.

    postol can beat ramirez, if the fighter from the taylor fight turns up, more experience, tricks and toughness then hooker.

    Crawford ruined Postol

    This brutal 12 round drubbing where Crawford spent the entire duration of the fight on his bicycle inflicting minimal damage sans a couple of flash KDs beat every ounce of stuffing out of poor Postol.



    Whereas these 3 genuinely brutal wars for the ages Postol's only claim to fame Lucas Matthysse had been involved in in 3 of his 4 previous fights prior to facing Postol (all against KO punchers) took absolutely nothing out of him and he was a fresh as a daisy when he fought Postol.
