Crawford unifies over Postol
Since as with all pay per views fights,I am unable to watch those due to work,I am relying on the words of others for the bout.
The fight was even for four rounds,before Crawford(TRS rated 1st at 140) dropped Postol (rated 2nd by TRS) twice in the fifth round and didn't lose another round as he cruised to victory,
Crawford called for Manny Pacquiao after the win,if Pacquiao would drop the weight to fight at Crawford's division,but reading the reports,some have been critical of Crawford for not stepping the pace forward in an attempt to finish Postol off.
Crawford would certainly be a preferable foe for Pacquiao than the other proposed opponent-the also Top Rank controlled WBO welterweight champ Jessie Vargas.but I'm not sure that Top Rank wants to take that fight so quickly.
Crawford might be the right fighter to tame Pacquiao,but another cash-in against Vargas first enables the money train to keep rolling...
Oscar Valdez was impressive in winning the vacant WBO featherweight title in blowing out Matias Rueda in just two rounds.
Valdez looks to be a coming star in the 126 pound division,but the issue is that all of the fighters rated ahead of him in the TRS rankings (Valdez is currently 5th) are all promoted by Al Haymon's PBC,so those fighters could be tough fights to make for Valdez.
Ramon Malpica and I each notched four points in the boxing challenge,which currently stands at 88-73
