On Saturday night, Oct. 3, inside of the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., Ukraine native Viktor Postol came away with the biggest victory over his career in stopping Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse in the 10th round of their junior welterweight clash.

Matthysse, 33, took the early lead in the HBO-televised contest but it was Postol, 31, who weathered the storm and began controlling the distance and pace of the matchup. Matthysse was always pressing and appeared to rock Postol several times in the seventh round but he simply had trouble dealing with the size and length of his foe.
