Lucas Matthysse and Viktor Postol were on hand in Los Angeles on Thursday to formally announce their October 3 clash, which will take place at the StubHub Center in Carson, California and will be televised on HBO.
The card will be a doubleheader on HBO Boxing After Dark and will also feature former titlist Humberto Soto taking on Antonio Orozco in the co-feature.
“I’m very delighted to be fighting for the world title against Viktor Postol and to share the card with Humberto Soto and Antonio Orozco,” said Matthysse. “What can I say? I’ll see you on October 3. I am excited to be back in Carson. The fans can expect a great fight.”
Postol, who will be fighting for the third time in the U.S. was also happy to get the chance to fight in Los Angeles.
“Los Angeles is a second home to me; it’s where my training camp is. I know that Lucas will have more fans there, but it makes me happy to know I will have support there, too on fight night.”
Soto was also grateful for another fight on HBO while hopeful that unlike his past two schedule fights, it will actually take place on October 3.
“As the saying goes, third time is a charm. I hope it’s true because my two others fights this year have fallen through. I will be ready and in the best of shape for October 3.
“I want to thank Antonio Orozco for taking this fight. He is a tremendous fighter. It will be a great fight for the fans. The fans that pay for a ticket are going to enjoy it. They’re going to be the winners on October 3.”
