Video: Errol Spence Doubles Down on Crawford, Arum

Video by Ryan Burton

The WBA lightweight title bout between Robert Easter Jr and Rances Barthelemy ended in a split draw on Saturday.

Judge Tim Cheatham scored the 12-round fight 115-113 in favour of Easter, Eric Cheek had it 115-113 for Barthelemy and Glenn Trowbridge ranked the clash even at 114-114.

It was a dull affair in Las Vegas, where the WBA belt remains vacant after neither fighter won the main event.

"I think it was close but I felt that I edged it out toward the end," American Easter (21-1-1, 14 KO) said afterwards.

"I applied the pressure. The judges seen it a different way. Rances Barthelemy is a crafty fighter, a tricky fighter. He stayed away from my power, which is smart."

Cuban Barthelemy (27-1-1, 14 KO) added through a translator: "We thought he was going to fight, he didn't fight. He didn't attack in this fight. Maybe he threw them [punches] at the air."

There's some incredible amnesia on NSB lately regarding Arum and his antics. But it's cool...Keep drinking the Kool-Aid and believing that Bob [I]REALLY[/I] wants to make the Spence fight right now....Just like Bob had Floyd's name in his and everybody…

[QUOTE=BIG GUNZ;19700872]Everyone needs to realize that realistically this fight won’t happen until late 2020 at the earliest. I still think 2021 or 2022 are most realistic. I think this is how it might happen. Spence will fight Porter this September.…
