Mikey Garcia vs. Robert Easter - CompuBox Historical Review

By CompuBox

The selective Mikey Garcia avg'd 49.4 thrown per round (10 less than the wgt. class avg.) and landed 44.6% of his power shots. He amassed a +9.5 plus/minus rating, landing 31.4% of his punches to just 21.9% for his opponents.

Opponents landed just 8.8 punches per round- half the wgt. class avg. and just 5.5 power shots per round- more than half the wgt. class avg. One possible criticism of Garcia: he doesn't go to the body, as just 13.8% of his landed punches are body shots (CompuBox avg.: 24.2%).

Easter (last 5 fights) isn't busy either, but did land 15.4 punches per round, while opponents landed just 12.7 per frame- well below the wgt. class avg. 29.4% of Easter's landed punches are body.

RICHARD SCHAEFER, Chairman & CEO of Ringstar Sports
 
"This is a top to bottom amazing card. It's a boxing spectacular taking place here at STAPLES Center. We have a little bit of everything on this card. That includes talent from Robert Garcia's gym, plus 2016 U.S. Olympian Karlos Balderas, who I believe will one day be headlining at STAPLES Center one day.
 
"The televised portion of this card has a stellar lineup as well, including an undefeated Mario Barrios, who represents Texas well and makes his state proud. He's one of the most exciting fighters in the division and will have a tough challenge in Jose Roman.
 
"Luis Ortiz is the kind of fighter that you just don't want to miss a minute of when he fights. He is coming off of one of the best fights of this year, when he challenged WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
 
"The matchup between Mikey Garcia and Robert Easter Jr. is the cherry on top of an amazing night. I know that these fighters are ready to entertain and showcase their talent."
