After the battle Postol commented on his victory as follows: "I want to give credit for Matthysse - he is a serious opponent. Of course, I was thinking about knockout but did not focus on it. I realized that I could knock him out and the punch came itself. I missed few strong punches from Matthysse, but it’s not for nothing that I am called the Iceman - I hold punches."
