Nobody seems to know exactly how Terence Crawford vs Viktor Postol will turn out, but a high level fight that is 50-50 on paper is what boxing needs more of. That the fight is a unification bout could even be incidental, but both Crawford and Postol hold separate belts nonetheless.
Though there seems to be less and less incentive to actually unify titles as time goes by, many of boxing's memorable battles have been unification matches. Felix Trinidad vs Oscar de la Hoya, Ray Leonard vs Thomas Hearns I and II, Bernard Hopkins vs Felix Trinidad and Oscar de la Hoya, Erik Morales vs Marco Antonio Barrera I, Diego Corrales vs Jose Luis Castillo, Brian Viloria vs Tyson Marquez... All unification bouts. The list goes on, and that's exactly what Compubox operator Aris Pina and Patrick Connor of The Fight City (and other places) will ramble on about.
