Former World Champs Postol & Butler
Confirmed As Reserves For Nov. 3 In Glasgow
Viktor Postol and Paul Butler have been confirmed as the two
reserve fighters when the World Boxing Super Series comes to
The SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland on November 3.
Ukraineís Viktor Postol (29-2, 12 KOs), the former WBC Super
Lightweight World champion, faces Turkish Siar Ozgul (14-1,
3 KOs) in a 140lb contest.
Postol burst onto the World scene when he outboxed and
outpunched Lucas Matthysse before knocking out the Argentine
in the 10th round to earn the WBC belt.
Postol's only losses have come at the hands of Josh Taylor
last time out and to Pound-for-Pound star Bud Crawford.
British Bantamweight Paul Butler (26-2, 14 KOs), a former
World Champion at 118lbs, meets Yoan Boyeaux of France
(41-5, 26 KOs).
Butler has only ever lost to WBSS Season 2 Seeds, Emmanuel
Rodriguez and Zolani Tete, and will be keen to make his mark
under the famous WBSS lights ahead of the main event bouts.
Both Postol and Butler will be on standby to enter the
quarter-finals in the unlikely scenario of one of the
original participants being unable to compete.
Fans at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow will be treated to a
spectacular doubleheader featuring two Ali Trophy
Quarter-Final contests as Scottish Super-Lightweight star
Josh Taylor takes on the undefeated American Ryan Martin.
Meanwhile, Northern Irelandís WBA World Champion Ryan
Burnett meets former four-weight World Champion,
Filipino-American Nonito Donaire in one of Season IIís
Bantamweight Quarter Final contests.
