Former world champion in the Welterweight version of the WBC Viktor Postol (29-1, 12 KO’s) learned the name of his former rival.
World Boxing Council (WBC) sanctioned the qualifying battle between Postolos and unbeaten British prospect Josh Taylor (12-0, 11 KO’s), of which the portal “BoxRec” puts to seventh in the ranking of the best boxers of the division. The fight will take place on 23 June in Glasgow at the arena “The SSE Hydrо”.
In case of a victory over the British Postol becomes the mandatory Challenger for the WBC title. The rival and the new world champion will be determined in the confrontation between Regis Prograam (21-0, 18 KO’s) and Jose Carlos Ramirez (22-0, 16 KO’s).
Postol in March, had to fight with Prograam for the belt “interim” WBC champion, but injured and delayed his return to the ring.
In his last fight Viktor Postol, having been in a knockdown, unanimous decision, passed a little-known Uzbek of Jamshedjee she was.
