Photos: Robert Easter is Grinding Hard For Mikey Garcia Fight

IBF Lightweight World Champion Robert Easter Jr. has made the most of his inaugural training camp with Kevin Cunningham and will look to bring that same level of focus to the ring when he challenges WBC Lightweight World Champion Mikey Garcia Saturday, July 28 live on SHOWTIME from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles in an event presented by Premier Boxing Champions.

Easter saw what Cunningham had done for his close friends Adrien Broner and Gervonta Davis, who both trained with Cunningham leading into April 21 fights on SHOWTIME that saw Broner battle to an entertaining draw against Jessie Vargas and Davis capture a second world title with a spectacular knockout of Jesus Cuellar.

Easter burst onto the scene in 2016 with a dominant knockout of former champion Argenis Mendez before beating Richard Commey later that year in an entertaining battle to capture the lightweight belt. Easter's last two defenses however have seen him narrowly escape with decision victories, something the unbeaten champion believes won't be a factor on July 28.

The 27-year-old Easter will now step up to take on one of boxing's pound-for-pound best in four-division world champion Mikey Garcia. For Easter, this is a fight that he's had on his mind and one that can put him into the top echelon of the sport.

...easy fight for Mikey, early knock out...Easter is overrated, and very lucky he's won by close decisions...he's a "shot fighter!"
