  Robert Easter Jr. Toledo Media Day Quotes

Former lightweight world champion Robert ďE-BunnyĒ Easter Jr. hosted a media day in his hometown of Toledo, Ohio Thursday and was joined by the Easter Bunny ahead of Sundayís holiday. Easter will face former two-division champion Rances Barthelemy for the vacant WBA Lightweight Title on Saturday, April 27 live on SHOWTIME from The Chelsea inside of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and presented by Premier Boxing Champions.

Easter discussed his upcoming matchup before posing for pictures with the Easter Bunny. Here is what Easter had to say Thursday:


ďIíve put in a lot of hard work this training camp. Weíve been grinding every day. We went hard on the strength and conditioning, Iíve been swimming and doing everything possible to be in top shape.

ďMost importantly me and my dad have been getting back on track. We had a little break after the last fight but now weíve both got our timing down and ready for April 27.

ďI train for every fight like itís a big fight. This time, it really is a big fight. I train hard for every fight, no exceptions.

ďI expect Rances to come out and fight. Heís an awkward, crafty fighter who likes to put up a fight. Itís not really about what I expect from him though, itís about what Iím going to do in there. Itís going to be my tempo.

ďItís big for me to fight for a title and itís something I put myself in position for with the way Iíve always fought. If I donít get the knockout, Iím going to beat him down for 12 rounds.

ďIíve always been a tall guy for this division and Iím ready to show everyone that Iím still trouble for anyone out there.

ďI got the ĎBunnyí nickname from my dad. Because both of our last names are Easter, you just cut it down to E-Bunny and thatís me. Iím excited to spend a little time not training on Easter Sunday with my family.Ē
