Robert Easter jr vs. Adrian Granados will be contested at a catchweight of 142 pounds. Granados (20-7-2 )has fought most of his fights at 140 pounds but recently he has campaigned mosty at welterweight. He is coming of a devastating loss to Danny garcia where he was knocked down hard several times. In the 7th round the referee had seen enough and called a halt to the fight. Robert Easter jr (21-1-1) only has one single loss on his resume that came against Mikey Garcia around a year ago. After that he faced the cuban Rances Barthelemy in a close fight that ended in a draw. This is Easter jr´s first fight above the 135 pound division but he defintely is big enough in size and the few extra pounds most likely will serve him good. Granados has always shown a very good chin which is why it was surprising to many when he was stopped by Danny Garcia. Granados had never been stopped before. Now all of a sudden he feels much more vulnerable and it is likely that he will be stopped more times in his career. The defense and reflexes seemed to be completely missing in his last fight. Robert easter jr is without a doubt the better boxer in this fight.
Granados will take a lot of punishment in this fight especially since his reflexes and defense seems diminished and he will have a very hard time dealing with the speed and reach of Easter jr. The bookmakers think this fight goes the distance for sure but we believe It is likely that Easter jr gets the stoppage and that pays an incredible +530 (6.30 decimal odds)
The Pick: Robert Easter jr to win fight
Odds: -355 (1.30 decimal odds)
