Robert Easter Jr vs. Rances Barthelemy

12 rounds, for vacant WBA "regular" lightweight title

Robert Easter jr vs Rances Barthelemy is a closer fight than the bookies suggest. Barthelemy is a 5/1 underdog which we think is to wide. We on BoxingPick.com always writes our own line before viewing oddsmakers and betting sites to not be influenced. A part of why they aren’t givning Barthelemy more credit is because of how he looked in his 2 fights with Relikh. Barthelemy showed a lack of concentration at times vs. kiryl Relikh in both fights where he would be hit with many clean punches he should have been able to avoid considering how good and sharp he has looked in the past which makes it look like he is slipping. That might be the case but he is still a very good fighter. Robert Easter jr seems to be in a better place right now, even after the loss to Mikey Garcia. Neither fighter has showed the ability to stop their best opponents so this one is likely to go the distance. The pick is Robert Easter jr win.
