Easter-Barthelemy Ends In A Draw

Rances Barthelemy and Robert Easter Jr. were not able to get the job done in their latest title fight.

Both men fought to a split draw in the main event of a PBC card from Las Vegas with the WBA “Regular” lightweight title on the line.

The fight was marred by inactivity and unwillingness to engage from both fighters with very few moments of real action between the two. Neither man was able to connect on more than eight punches each per round, combining for 106 total punches landed on 743 attempts among the two. The title was vacant in the fight and it will remain vacant. The winner of the bout could have potentially been in a position to eventually challenge WBA “Super” champion Vasiliy Lomachenko, but the status of the secondary title now remains a mystery.

In the co-main event, former world champion Viktor Postol got right back into title contention after a dominant performance against Mohammed Mimoune. Postol wins a 10-round decision to become the mandatory challenger to the WBC super lightweight title currently being held by Jose Ramirez.

In the opening bout, heavyweight prospect Efe Ajagba continues his impressive start to his career by stopping Michael Wallisch in less than two complete rounds, improving his record to 10-0.
