Former lightweight world champion Robert Easter Jr. and former two-division champion Rances Barthelemy will meet for the WBA Lightweight Title in the main event of action on Saturday, April 27 live on SHOWTIME from The Chelsea inside of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and presented by Premier Boxing Champions
Showtime World Championship Boxing will also feature former super lightweight champion Viktor Postol taking on France’s Mohamed Mimoune in a WBC super lightweight title eliminator, while rising heavyweight sensation Efe Ajagba looks to remain unbeaten against once-beaten German Michael Wallisch in a 10-round attraction.
Easter Jr. vs. Barthelemy pits two highly-skilled and explosive former 135-pound champions against each other as they look to grab a title and vault themselves back into the top echelon of the division.
Easter Jr. will return to the ring for the first time since losing his IBF title in a unification showdown against WBC Champion Mikey Garcia last July on SHOWTIME, while Relikh fights for the second time since losing a 140-pound title rematch to Kiryl Relikh last March on SHOWTIME.
