On Friday afternoon, WBC lightweight champion Mikey Garcia came face to face with IBF lightweight champion Robert Easter Jr. at the weigh-in ahead  of their unification showdown. Garcia (38-0, 30 KO’s) faces Easter (21-0, 14 KO’s) on Saturday night from the Staples Center in  Los Angeles in a Premier Boxing Champions telecast that will air on SHOWTIME.

As the two men  stared one another down, Easter seemed far more animated while Garcia was stone-faced.

“All the work is done; the talking is done,” Garcia stated. “Now it’s time to settle this thing in the ring.”

Easter, 27, may be a big underdog, yet he seems fully ready for the moment.

“I told Mikey there ain’t no more talking,” said Easter. “I’m coming in shape. It’s going to be an exciting fight for all the fans that are here from my side and from his side. We’re just ready to fight and put on a great performance for LA.”
