Local boxing champion Robert Easter Jr. will defend his world title for the first time at the Huntington Center in Toledo Friday.

Back in September, Easter climbed into the ring against Richard Commey. The fight was toe-to-toe all the way into the 12th round. But when the bell rung for a final time, Easter was 18-0 and the PBC Lightweight champion.

So what does it take to be a championship fighter? 

"Come Feb. 10, I'll be ready and prepared for anything," said Easter. "I pushed myself to the limit."
