Mikey Garcia Set For July Return
After reports that he’d be signing with ZUFFA Boxing, Mikey Garcia will be returning to the ring on July 28th.
In a story first reported by ESPN, Garcia will battle Robert Easter Jr in a lightweight unification match, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Garcia was last seen taking a decision victory against Sergey Lipinets, to win Lipinets’ IBF 140 pound title, and would soon after relinquish it to remain the WBC lightweight champion.
Easter, who has won all but seven of his 21 fights by knockout, held the IBF lightweight title since 2016, and would be his fourth defense in two years.
