Former IBF Champ Robert Easter Jr. Accused Of Knocking Woman Unconscious, Pleads Not Guilty
Robert Easter Jr., 30, was charged after he allegedly punched a woman in the face in Ohio, knocking her out and leaving her unconscious.
Easter is reportedly accused of punching a 28-year-old woman named Selina Terry on the left side of her face. The former IBF lightweight titlist, however, pleaded not guilty in court.
The incident occurred just before 4 a.m. on Saturday at Bucks Rack City strip club in the 5000th block of Telegraph Road in Toledo.
According to the responding police officer, the victim had a split lip and a chipped tooth. Terry was later moved to a nearby medical facility for treatment.
The court has ordered him to stay away from the woman.
Easter had become the IBF titleholder after he defeated Richard Commey in 2016. The Ohio-native then defended his title three times until he faced Mikey Garcia in 2018, who handed his only loss of his career.
The 30-year-old last fought in February against Ryan Martin. He won the match via unanimous decision to add another win to his 23-1 record with 14 knockouts.
