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."

When I saw the height gap I thought of Hagler Hearns.Garcia might have to turn it into that type of fight to stand a chance.

Easter has obviously used the media to do plllllennntyyy of talking leading up to this. But it won't matter. Mikey will do his usual carefully crafted patient dismantling, and Easter will crumble... mid to late rounds. Hard to image a…
