Barthelemy and Easter will fight for the vacant lightweight belt of the WBA

Two former world champions will clash this Saturday at the Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas, Nevada. The Cuban native Rances Barthelemy and the American native Robert Easter Jr. will try to recover a world title belt when they clash for the Lightweight Championship of the World Boxing Association (WBA) this Saturday night.

Barthelemy returned to 135 pounds after a couple of combats in the top division where he did not do well. He will have the opportunity to return to championship status in the weight category that has seen him have his best fights and will face a tough opponent in Easter. He is coming to knock out Robert Easter after falling last year against the Belarussian Kiryl Relikh for the 140-pound title.

For his part, Easter Jr. could not compete with Mikey Garcia in his most recent match and fell by the way of the scorecards. The American is immediately known by his height, which makes him an uncomfortable boxer and difficult to find for his rivals. He also has a very high punch average and tends to overwhelm his opponents thanks to his punch volume and hitting from long distance.

Barthelemy comes into the fight with 27 wins, only 1 loss, and 14 knockouts. For his part, the American has a balance of 21 wins, 1 loss, and 14 knockouts.
