Lotierzo Looks at Easter vs Fortuna for Saturday – The Barclays Center in Brooklyn hosts Showtime Boxing this Saturday as promoter Lou DiBella rolls out a massive 11-fight boxing card. Two world title fights sit in the main event spots, including the IBF lightweight title fight between champion Robert Easter Jr and challenger Javier Fortuna.
Easter Jr is making the third defense of the belt he won back in September of 2016 when he won a tight split decision over Richard Commey. This is Easter Jr’s first defense at the Barclays Center and he will be looking to make the most of his showcase spot. In Fortuna, he is facing a game challenger who is moving up in weight from the super featherweight division to mount this challenge.
