Easter: Against Mikey Garcia, You'll See Why So Many Duck Me!

By Radio Rahim

IBF lightweight world champion Robert Easter Jr. (21-0, 14 KOs) is really pumped to secure the fight that he's been calling for, a unification with WBC lightweight champion Mikey Garcia (38-0, 30 KOs).

Their highly anticipated showdown will take place on Saturday, July 28th, in the main event of a Showtime televised card from the Staples Center in Los Angeles in an event presented by Premier Boxing Champions.

Garcia is the favorite to come out on top, but Easter will enter the ring with a 5-inch height and 8-inch reach advantage.

Neither boxer has ever been a unified champion.

Garcia has captured world titles at 126, 130, 134 and 140-pounds.

Easter has not been as impressive as many had expected in his last two fights. He had a tougher time than anticipated in defeated Denis Shafikov back in June of 2017. And then he barely escaped defeat when he secured a very close twelve round split decision over Javier Fortuna in January of this year.

Easter admits that he wasn't very motivated by some of his recent opponents, but he promises to be at his very best when he steps in the ring with Garcia.

"This is a fight that's going to bring the best skills out of me. You got two boxers who can box, so its sort of gonna be a chess match. Two of the best in the weight class are coming to clash on July 28th, and this is going to bring the best out of me and people are really going to see who the real Robert Easter Jr. is," Easter told

"This fight is going to really show my true boxing skills and why a lot of fighters have been ducking me. After I win this fight, it's going to take me to superstar status. It's going to put me where I need to be and let everyone recognize who I really am."
