Postol and Stubhub Pics
Photos from StubHub Center with Viktor Postol vs Lucas Matthysse; Julian Ramirez vs Hugo Partida and Mercito Gesta vs. Miguel Mendoza. Oct. 3, 2015
Ukraine's Viktor Postol started the fight by preventing any semblance of a fight with constant holding of Lucas Matthysse.
Fans and Matthysse were restless of the continual wrestling by Postol. It was a very difficult fight to watch at the StubHub. Not this night.
Things began to get interesting when Postol-after numerous warnings-stopped holding and began to actually fight.
Argentina's Matthysse fired powerful blows but was unable to connect with anything that could hurt Postol.
Once Postol began to fight and use his long reach and quickness, he began to rack up points.
With a single right cross Postol stunned Matthysse and floored him in the 10th round. The Argentine did not get up. Postol became the new WBC junior welterweight champion in a strange fight.
East L.A.'s Julian Ramirez was too fast and too smart for Mexico's Hugo Partida.
Mercito Gesta showed speed and boxing skills against Mexico's very rugged Miguel Mendoza in their junior welterweight clash. Gesta slipped early in the fight and it was erroneously declared a knockdown. Gesta wasn't fazed and resumed out-boxing Mendoza.
Ramirez won almost every round over Partida and was declared the winner.
Gesta was declared the winner by unanimous decision after 10 rounds.
