There is nothing unique that I see coming from him that I haven’t seen or faced - Robert Easter Jr to Richard Commey.
Commey tipped the scales at 135Ibs while Easter who has better reach than the Ghanaian came in at 134.5Ibs.
“I’ve sparred Joshua Clottey, [a former 147-pound champ] who has power,” Commey said. “I’m ready to put my life on the line, adding my name to the list of Ghanaian champion boxers by bringing a title back to my country.”
But Easter in reply to Commey’s words said: “There is nothing unique that I see coming from him that I haven’t seen or faced.”
“If I execute the game plan, this guy won’t stand a chance, and I’ll make it look easy. I say that with confidence.
"There’s some pressure on me, but I embrace all of it. This should be a walk in the park for me.”
Commey, 29, is fighting in the United States for just the second time after making his American debut with an eighth-round TKO of Bahodir Mamadjonov in Las Vegas in May 2015. In his last fight in March, he gained a second-round TKO of Anzor Gamgebeli in Albertslund, Denmark.
Easter is coming off a sensational fifth-round TKO of Argenis Mendez in April, when he became the first boxer to stop the former 130-pound world champion. The win capped a rapid ascent from prospect to title contender over the last 18 months.
