Viktor Postol’s wife, Olga, was expected to deliver their twin sons at the end of this month. They came a bit early, however, with that blessed event taking place Tuesday.
Postol said at Wednesday’s final news conference promoting his junior welterweight title-unification bout Saturday against Terence Crawford at MGM Grand in Las Vegas that he was stoked his wife delivered before the fight.
“As you know, my wife gave birth to twin boys last night,” Postol said. “It made me very happy. It relieved a certain worry before this fight.”
Postol had promised his wife that when their sons were born, he would have a championship belt for each of them – meaning his and Crawford’s. Now they’ll be five days old if, and when, their father gets the second belt.
