005 Robert Easter Jr x Randes Barthelemy.0 - Easter vs Barthelemy: Live results and discussion

Robert Easter Jr and Rances Barthelemy headline tonight’s Showtime card.

Tonight at 10 pm ET, it’s another edition of Showtime Boxing: Special Edition, headlined by a lightweight (secondary) title fight between former titleholders Robert Easter Jr and Rances Barthelemy, both looking to stay in the mix at 135 pounds.

Easter, 28, lost his last fight against Mikey Garcia in July 2018, while Barthelemy, 32, lost in March 2018 to Kiryl Relikh before a tune-up win in December over Robert Frankel. Easter is a former lightweight titleholder, and Barthelemy has held belts at both 130 and 135.

In the co-feature, Viktor Postol and Mohamed Mimoune will meet in a WBC junior welterweight eliminator, the winner in line for a shot at the belt held by Jose Ramirez. Postol is a former WBC titleholder at 140, while Mimoune won the European welterweight title in 2017 before moving down in weight last year.

In the opener, Nigerian heavyweight Efe Ajagba, now based in Texas, will take on Germany’s Michael Wallisch in a fight set for but unlikely to see 10 rounds. Ajagba has yet to be taken past two rounds, and Wallisch was knocked out in five by Christian Hammer last time out.

Running order:

  • Efe Ajagba (9-0, 8 KO) vs Michael Wallisch (19-1, 12 KO), heavyweights, 10 rounds
  • Viktor Postol (30-2, 12 KO) vs Mohamed Mimoune (21-2, 2 KO), junior welterweights, 12 rounds
  • Robert Easter Jr (21-1, 14 KO) vs Rances Barthelemy (27-1, 14 KO), lightweights, 12 rounds
