Robert Easter Jr TKO-3 Juan Solis

Easter was devastating in this fight, hurting the smaller, overmatched Solis repeatedly. Solis (25-10, 9 KO) just had no shot in this one. He wasn't big enough and perhaps more importantly wasn't near good enough to be a real test for Easter (16-0, 13 KO), a 5'11" lightweight prospect with some real power and a love of going to the body. None of this is meant to criticize Easter -- he looked great here, and his job was to beat the man put in front of him. Hopefully we'll see him step up a bit going forward, because there is a lot to like about his game.

Jamel Herring UD-10 Yakubu Amidu

This became a fairly tough fight to watch as it dragged on, with a slow pace and little to no real output from Amidu. Scores were 99-91, 100-90, and 100-90. I had it 100-90 on TV, Connor had it 100-90 live in the arena. It wasn't exactly a hard fight to score. Herring (14-0, 8 KO) kept range with ease, as he was the longer fighter by a good bit and used that to his advantage. Amidu (21-8-2, 19 KO) is known to be a slow starter, but he never started at all in this fight.
