I guess everyone has a bad day once in a while, and Saturday night was a really bad one for Lucas Mattysse (34-4, 31 Ko’s).  In what was probably the most lack luster performance we have ever seen from the Agentine superstar, Viktor Postol (28-0, 12 KO’s), was able to pick up the KO victory against Matthysse.  “The Machine” came out looking strong, and rocking Postol with a left hook in the first round, and then proceeded to lose the next 4 rounds.

Postols’ long jab, foot movement, and his ability to clinch at the right moments, kept Matthysse at bay with his punches, and continued to frustrate Matthysse throughout the rest of the fight.  Lucas seemed to figure Postol out in the 6th, as he came at him with a few thunderous combinations.  Matthysse would win the 6th, and that was it.

Viktor Postol would go back to his jab, which was definitely his bread and butter in this fight, further frustrating Mr. Matthysse. After the 6th round, Lucas no longer could figure out how to get around the long jab of Postol, and looked like a beaten man.  Finally, in the 10th round, Postol hit Matthysse with a huge straight right hand, and put him down on the canvas.  Matthysse, on one knee throughout the duration of the 10 count, was definitely able to get up from that, but ultimately elected not to.  So it goes as a KO victory for Viktor Postol, as he stays undefeated and improves to 28-0.
