Fight card – The rundown
Mikey Garcia vs Robert Easter Jnr – WBC and IBF lightweight world titles
Garcia (38-0, 30 KO’s) looks to become a unified world champion for the first time, despite already being a four-weight world champion. Garcia last competed in March defeating Sergey Lipinets for the IBF super-lightweight world title but vacated the belt in order to face IBF 135 lbs champ Easter Jnr (21-0, 14 KO’s). Easter Jnr won the title in September 2016 beating Richard Commey and has since made three successful defences.
Luis Ortiz vs Razvan Cojanu – Heavyweight
Ortiz (28-1, 24 KO’s) takes to the ring for the first time since his March defeat against Deontay Wilder, who stopped the Cuban in 10 rounds successfully defending his WBC world title. Ortiz came close to a seventh round stoppage of Wilder, before ultimately being halted three rounds later. His comeback opponent Cojanu (16-3, 9 KO’s) is a former WBO world title challenger, having lost to then champion Joseph Parker in May 2015.
Fabian Andres Maidana vs Andrey Klimov – Welterweight
The younger brother of former two-weight world champion Marcos Maidana, Fabian Andres (15-0, 11 KO’s), looks to continue his undefeated run since turning professional in 2014 as he takes on Klimov (20-4, 10 KO’s), an experienced boxer who has shared the ring with Liam Walsh, Jose Pedraza, and Terence Crawford.
Mario Barrios vs Jose Roman – Super-lightweight
Barrios (21-0, 13 KO’s) takes on Roman (24-2-1, 16 KO’s) who lost in his last outing against Wilberth Lopez (18-9, 15 KO’s) in September 2017.
