Fighting out of Los Angeles, Williams (17-0, 13 KOs) most recently dropped David Grayton on his way to a unanimous decision victory in September of last year. He will be opposed by the 25-year-old DeLoach (18-3, 9 KOs), who most recently defeated Michael Ogundo in his first fight at welterweight since 2013. The Augusta, Georgia-native owns victories over Domonique Dolton, Junior Castillo and Christopher Pearson while campaigning at super welterweight.
 
Representing his native Panama, Corrales (22-2, 8 KOs) won a 130-pound world title by knocking out Takashi Uchiyama in Japan in 2016, before defeating him by decision in the rematch. Corrales will make his lightweight debut in his first fight since losing to Alberto Machado in October 2017 when he battles Mexico's Zamora (19-3, 12, KOs) on April 27.

I was wondering where Jezreel Corrales was

Barthelemy is moving back down to 135? The winner of this fight is another good option for Lomachenko to fight.

I like Easter but I like to see him fight his range and not like a shorter fighter...

Comment by SHO_RULEZ on 04-08-2019

I'm going with Barthelemy. Easter was exposed by Mikey Garcia. He can box on the outside, but is very weak inside. If Barthelemy makes it a rough, ugly fight, he has an excellent chance of winning.

no one is fighting for the vacant WBA world lightweight title because its not vacant. lomachenko and crolla are fighting for the WBA world title (called "super"), and easter/barthelemy are fighting for the "regalar" WBA world title, which means whoever…
