(Toledo, OH) Toledo-born boxing champion Robert Easter Junior is hoping for a home-ring advantage tonight. The IBF Lightweight World Champion will defend his title at the Huntington Center against Luis Cruz.
The prize-fight is the main event of a fight card that will showcase one other title fight and some of boxing's new stars.
But former Toledo Olympic boxing captain Devin Vargas won't fight tonight-- saying the promoter scheduled his medical tests too late to qualify with professional boxing regulators. Vargas confirmed he won't fight last night on his Facebook page, expressing anger over the developments in his post.
